Sanatana Dharma (The Eternal Natural Way) begins with the natural supposition that God not only exists, but is the basis of all reality. Atheism is a pseudo ideology predicated upon a need to justify moral and existential cowardice. “If there is no God,” the atheist hopes, “then I am accountable to nothing but my own whims.” Sanatana Dharma offers a path free from such amoral self-delusion!

“The America Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
– Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)
Taxation is theft. This one of the foundational political mantras of the Dharma Nation Movement.
Government produces no wealth. It only confiscates wealth in the form of taxation from those who do actually create wealth, and redistributes that wealth to those who did not earn it. Moreover, government officials and corrupt politicians engage in such taxation theft, not for the actual betterment of the poor, but to buy the votes of the poor. Writing about the duplicitous nature of such corrupt politicians, Prabhupada stated the following:
“Tax exaction is not meant for the sense gratification of the so-called administrative heads. Tax revenues should be distributed to the citizens in times of need, during emergencies such as famine or flood. Tax revenues should never be distributed amongst governmental servants in the form of high salaries and various other allowances. In Kali-yuga, however, the position of the citizens is very horrible because taxes are exacted in so many forms and are spent for the personal comforts of the administrators.”
(Srimad Bhagavatam 4.16.6, Purport)
Wealth belongs exclusively in the hands of those individuals, families and businesses who are directly responsible for its creation, and is not to be forcefully redistributed by the government to those who did not create it – even in the name of poverty reduction. Taxation must be recognized as a necessarily unavoidable evil that all governments must seek to reduce to the absolute minimum degree that is necessary to provide basic and foundational services to the people.
A Dharma Nationalist government would call for the abolition of the Internal Revenue Service, abandonment of the current complicated, confusing and inequitable tax system, the elimination of the progressive income tax, and a rapid transition to a more fair, flat tax system. Very simply, all households with a combined family income above the poverty level (income reflecting the year 2012) will pay a simple and fair 10% maximal tax rate, and when an atmosphere of economic prosperity warrants it, less than 10%. Whether a family makes $50,000 per year, $500,000 per year, or $5,000,000 per year, the yearly tax rate will never exceed 10% of that family’s total earnings. The property tax, marriage penalty tax, death tax, and inheritance tax will be abolished outright
 Poverty reduction is more effectively achieved via the volunteer work of private charitable organizations, and not through the inefficient and corrupt programs of government bureaucracies.
Our institutions ceased a very long ago to represent the interests of the people. Our media, government bureaucracies, schools and academic institutions have become corrupt enemies of the people’s interest. There is a much better way to organize government in order to ensure justice, prosperity and social sanity. The Dharma Manifesto explains how. Read it today!
On Sunday, August 5th, a psychopathic coward opened fire on a Sikh temple in the state of Wisconsin, killing six innocent worshipers before he himself was gunned down by police officers. One heroic police officer, Lt. Brian Murphy, was shot by this coward nine times and is currently in the hospital. As officer Murphy lay bleeding on the ground, he insisted that the medical responders take care of the wounded Sikh parishioners first before treating his own wounds.
In his courageous heroism and selfless actions, Lt. Brian Murphy represents everything that Dharma stands for. We wish him a speedy recovery.
The Dharma Nation Movement vociferously and unequivocally condemns this cowardly and meaningless act of violence. Regardless of one’s political or ideological beliefs, terroristic violence against innocent civilians can never be justified. Despite the amoral pronouncements of such ethically shallow ideologies as Marxism and other anti-Dharmic movements, the ends never justify the means. It is for this reason that the Dharma Nation Movement, since its very inception, has followed a rigid policy of always observing the highest ethical behavior possible in the pursuit of our peaceful political ends.
The ends never justifies the means.
Our prayers and well wishes go out to all the victims of this tragedy.
In America today, there is very little that you can actually do without getting some sort of a “license” or a “permit” first.
Do you want to leave your home?
You better get a license to drive first or find someone that does.
Do you want to start a business?
You better get ready for a very long relationship with licenses and permits.
Do you want to open a Hot Dog Stand?
A 13 year old boy up in Michigan has had his hot dog stand shut down because of a zoning violation. His parents actually thought that they had all the proper licensing.
Do you want to collect rainwater?
Could you imagine being sent to prison for collecting the rain that falls from the sky on your own property? A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.
Care for a Smoke?
Santa Monica, California has decided to make it illegal to smoke inside your own home.
Want to take a drive with Fido?
In New Jersey, if you are driving around with an “unrestrained” cat or dog in your vehicle you can be fined up to $1000 for each offense.
How about a bake sale?
Hazelwood, Missouri it is actually illegal for little girls to sell girl scout cookies in the front yards of their own homes.
Don’t let junior play with chalk.
In one Denver neighborhood, children have been banned from drawing on the sidewalk with colored chalk.
And forget that lemonade stand.
All over the United States, lemonade stands run by small children are being shut down by police because they do not have the “proper permits”.
How about reading some religious scriptures?
Recently a man that was arrested for hosting a Bible study in his own home. It turns out that he is still in prison serving his 60 day prison sentence.
Are you growing a garden?
Denise Morrison in Tulsa, Oklahoma had her survival garden brutally ripped out and carted away by government thugs. She was relying on that garden to provide the things that she needed. But the government control freaks savagely ripped it all out and left her with nothing.
Does junior ever throw temper tantrums?
If so, your child may get arrested and sent to a mental institution if he or she throws a tantrum in front of the police. A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was “throwing objects, hitting administration personnel and screaming uncontrollably” so police handcuffed the 40 pound little girl and shipped her off to a mental institution for evaluation.
Don’t pack plastic utensils with juniors lunch.
An 11-year-old kid down in Florida was actually arrested by police, thrown in jail and charged with a third-degree felony simply for bringing a plastic butter knife to school.
Better get your dose of Fluoride
In Massachusetts, all children in daycare centers are mandated by state law to brush their teeth after lunch. In fact, the state even provides the fluoride toothpaste for the children.
Blogging? Forget it in Philly
It is illegal to make even a single dollar from a blog unless you buy a $300 business license. The Philly government even went after one poor woman who had earned only $11 from her blog over the past two years.
Spare some water Buddy?
In Louisiana one church was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have the “proper permit” to do so.
“Do thou fight for the sake of fighting, without considering happiness or distress, loss or gain, victory or defeat — and by so doing you shall never incur demerit.”
– Bhagavad Gita, 2:38

In early July, on the sleepy Friday after Independence Day, the USDA quietly signaled its intention to green-light a new genetically engineered soybean seed from Dow AgroSciences. The product is designed to produce soy plants that withstand 2,4-D, a highly toxic herbicide (and, famously, the less toxic component in the notorious Vietnam War-era defoliant Agent Orange).
The beautiful Himalayan mountain nation of Nepal has been a nation deeply rooted in everything Dharmic for many thousands of years. Approximately 90% of her citizens follow Sanatana Dharma, with most of the other 10% following Buddhism.
The Dharmic people of Nepal have been known to entire world to be among the most peaceful, joyous, welcoming and spiritually content people on Earth.
Nepal’s peace and joy all came to a dramatic end, however, beginning with the violent, terrorist Communist insurgency that plunged this peaceful Vedic land into a living nightmare of turmoil, death, discontent and conflict. Today, the happy face of Nepal has been violently repressed and replaced with the vicious scowl of atheism. Her youth have been forced at gunpoint to support the Communist oppressors, and Dharma is only a memory for most.
The Dharma Nation Movement calls for the complete annihilation of the totalitarian Communist Party of Nepal, freedom for the Nepali people, and the restoration of Dharma as the official foundation of all national government and policy.
Free the Dharma Nation of Nepal!
Victory to the Dharma Nation!
Vegetarianism: Celebrating Life
By Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya
The reasons for becoming a vegetarian are many. Vegetarianism makes sense from every possible perspective.
Health – Vegetarians have been shown to live longer, as well as suffer much less from such health problems as cancer, heart-disease and other illnesses. Contrary to popular belief, meat foods are not a necessary component of the human diet. In fact, evolutionarily and biologically, humans are not designed to be carnivores. Our teeth and intestinal structures are best suited for an herbivorous (vegetarian) diet.
Economic – A cow has to be fed up to 16 pounds of grain in order to produce only one pound of beef. If this grain were to be fed directly to human beings, world starvation could be eliminated. In addition, the meat industry is one of the most heavily federally subsidized industries in America. Your tax dollars are being wasted supporting an industry that produces an inefficient and unhealthy product.
Environmental – Central and South American rain forests are being decimated at the alarming rate of 2.5 acres per second. Much of this destruction is occurring in order to provide grazing land for beef cattle. Every burger we eat represents a tree mowed down in a rain forest. Also, the meat industry has been repeatedly cited as one of the major industries responsible for massive pollution, including the dumping of noxious wastes into our nation’s water supplies.
Ethical – To kill or give pain to any living creature, especially when such actions are unnecessary and not in self-defense, is morally unjustified. Like you and I, animals are sentient living beings, and have been proven to be capable of feeling pain and suffering. Animals, like humans, cry out if cut; they scream if killed; they mourn if separated from those they love. God created animals, not for us to torture and gobble up thoughtlessly, but to cooperate with, learn from and protect. If we are, indeed, vastly superior to animals in both our ethical development and in our sense of justice, should we not perhaps behave as such?
Spiritual – Most of the world’s varied religious traditions are opposed to creating unnecessary suffering. The two most important qualities that many spiritual paths attempt to instill in their adherents are wisdom and compassion. These qualities are impossible to develop as long as we engage in violence of any sort. However insignificant or distant an act of violence may appear to us (such as the killing and eating of animals), it nonetheless contributes to an overall social attitude of justifying violence. Violent minds lead to violent lifestyles. In such a state of consciousness, it is impossible to make any serious advancement on one’s chosen spiritual path.
These, and many other considerations, make it quite clear that the vegetarian alternative is a lifestyle that is both reasonable and healthy for your body, mind and soul. We hope these facts have given you a little food for thought, and that you will consider becoming a vegetarian. For more information on vegetarianism, please visit Dharmacentral.com

“Degrade first the arts if you’d mankind degrade, Hire idiots to paint with cold light and hot shade.” – William Blake (1757-1827)
Art and culture were traditionally considered to be sacred expressions of the beauty of nature and of God, who is the source of nature. Art and culture were not ever meant to be denigrated into the neurotic ugliness that has replace true art today. The artist was not originally a troubled and psychotic con-artist, a greedy business man, or someone devoid of actual talent. A true artist was considered to be someone who was inspired to act as a clear and revealing window unto higher worlds and aspirations. A Dharma Nationalist government would revive the traditional understanding of art and culture as an expression of actual beauty and meaning. We will foster the promotion of culture, beauty, music, and art in all spheres of life by encouraging the creation of Councils of Arts and Culture in every local community. Such councils will be federally unfunded, but funded and maintained strictly on the local level.
(Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Monday the West’s influence was waning as its economy declines but warned Russian diplomats to be on their guard against a backlash from Moscow’s former Cold War enemies.
In a biennial speech to Russian ambassadors, Putin also took a shot at the West by condemning any unilateral actions to solve international disputes and underlined the importance of resolving such conflicts through the United Nations.
His remarks suggested that Russia, a veto-wielding permanent member of the Security Council, would keep on defending ally Syria at the United Nations over its military crackdown on an popular uprising that has evolved into an armed insurgency.
