Svensson on Motpol: A Review of "The Dharma Manifesto" (2013)


I'm a long time contributor to Motpol, a conservative Swedish think-tank. There's also a section for Motpol entries in English, and there I've posted a review of "The Dharma Manifesto". The book is a clarion-call for religions of Natural Law as opposed to Abrahamitic religions. Here you have the text in question.

I have been thinking about buying The Dharma Manifesto or Sanatana Dharma : The Eternal Natural Way.
Which book should I read first ?

A good question. If you're a spiritual person, indifferent to hands-on, current societal issues, then buy "Sanâtana Dharma - The Eternal Natural Way".

On the other hand, if you're a person both interested in modern politics and spirituality then "The Dharma Manifesto" is your choice. "The Dharma Manifesto" explains the nature of Sanâtana Dharma rather well so the manifesto is rather pedagogic in itself.

I guess that, in the long run, "Sanâtana Dharma -- The Eternal Natural Way" is what spiritual persons can benefit from. But "The Dharma Manifesto" is something of a philosophical thriller, it excites you and challenges you but that's what manifestoes should do, I think.
