The Book of Dharma

The Book of Dharma charts Simon Haas’s journey to India and his “excavation” of the Dharma Code, a powerful system for making enlightened choices and directing our life more consciously. In this ground-breaking book, Haas discloses these ancient, transformative teachings for contemporary Western readers, for the first time openly revealing a knowledge that has been passed down in secrecy in a sacred tradition for millennia.

★★★★★ “One of the BEST BOOKS I’ve read in a long time…”

“A ‘must-have’ for teachers and students alike who wish to develop their understanding of yoga and deepen their practice. Expertly written by the experienced Haas, who lived in temple monasteries in India for ten years and apprenticed for sixteen years with an elderly Bhakti master practitioner, the book shows how we can consciously direct our life by improving the quality of our choices, and clearly explains the four design principles of the Dharma Code – truth, purity, non-violence and discipline. Highly recommended.”

“This book is a labour of love and reads swiftly and elegantly. … The idea of simply addressing four of the yamas and niyamas: ahimsa (non-violence), satya (truth), saucha (purity) and tapas (discipline) as a guide to life, is in itself ingenious and alluring. Haas’s own life bears testimony to the power of this theory. Read it if you are in any way interested in going into yoga philosophy; it is the perfect inroad. For yoga teachers, you will find this application of the yamas most revealing.”

“One of my favourite spiritual books of this year. Highly recommended!”

Dylan Hendrix

teacher of yoga and author of Art of the Storm (Balboa Press, 2017)

“Concealed in Sanskrit verses, allegories and sacred hymns, the teachings of ancient India are sometimes difficult to access. Simon Haas does a marvellous job of culturally translating these teachings for contemporary readers, free from jargon, in a way that offers immense value. This is a unique contribution.”

Ariadna Landman

Ayurvedic medicine teacher and practitioner; founder of VitalVeda

“Haas uses his own life story and passion for truth to seek out something that lies hidden, both in India and in his own heart; he then assimilates this knowledge, which leads to transformation, and he expresses it in a unique, modern way, so that readers can benefit from it and from his life’s journey. Well written and brilliantly conceived…”

Steven J. Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa)

author of some thirty books on the Bhakti tradition and related subjects; senior editor of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies

“A soulful page turner. As soon as I started reading The Book of Dharma, I felt as if my soul was being fed. I couldn’t put it down. I immediately began to share the beautiful and useful wisdom found page after page in this book. Simon captures the timeless Vedic truths with so much grace and ease, while weaving his own experiences and modern analogies to show relevancy today. It is a book I will continue to return to for lifting my spirit and getting life perspective. I highly recommend this book to all!”
