Dharma Republic is promoting the emergence of a global Dharmic culture and a Dharmic economy based on timeless spiritual and ecological principles, through the “Hundreth Monkey Effect“.
We are promoting spiritual evolution through an increased awareness based on the convergence of Yoga, Ayurveda, Plant Nutrition, Energy Healing, Sacred Art, Permaculture and Self-Reliance, all within the framework of the eternal Dharmic wisdom, or Universal Spiritual Science.
Our vision is an alchemy where internet entrepreneurs, permaculture pioneers, renewable energy developers, digital artists, holistic healers and spiritual practitioners all cooperate in synergy to facilitate the emergence of a coherent global Dharmic culture.
“Even North Asia, including Korea and Japan, were greatly influenced by Indic ideas, for instance through the person of Bodhidharma, who founded the Zen school of Buddhism. In general, Buddhism is the glue that holds all of Asia together, or to put it more precisely, it is the Dharmic underpinnings of Buddhism, Hinduism and related ‘religions of the forest’.”
“[…] Fundamentally, the cultural and civilizational values of Indic Asia, Indo-China, Sinic Asia, and North Asia, are quite similar, as there has historically been little or no conflict between Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Taoism and Shintoism – and, as can be seen in Indonesia’s Borobudur or in the Kamakura Buddha Temple of Japan or in the Hindu Irawan shrine in Thailand[…]” – Rajeev Srinivasan
“East and West must establish a golden middle path of activity and spirituality combined […] India has much to learn from the West in material development; in return, India can teach the universal methods by which the West will be able to base its religious beliefs on the unshakable foundations of yogic science.” – Mahavatar Babaji to Sri Yukteswar
About the Editors
As the visitor soon notices, the cultures of South East Asia share many common characteristics, and for good reasons: it was all once part of the Maha Bharat, or Greater India (of which Southeast Asia proper is called Suvarnabhumi in Sanskrit).
Our aim here is to unearth and popularize all the treasures of the rich Dharmic culture that once spanned the whole of Southeast Asia, and generally facilitate the adoption of a global Dharmic lifestyle.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
