ABOUT THE BOOK

'Dharma' is a term which has now become part of the world vocabulary, but very few know the range and depth of its meaning. Annie Besant, having studied the great discourse on dharma of Bhishma in the Mahabharata, introduces this complex and deep subject to the lay reader. Morality or dharma is subtle, varying from individual to individual, for it is the law by which the inner nature unfolds in each one from his or her particular stage in evolution. This is a subject of great relevance to all individuals and nations of the world, treated in this book with the innate wisdom and intuitive insight of the author.
