Product description

About the Author

AMISH is a 1974-born IIM (Kolkata)-educated, boring banker turned happy author. The success of his debut book, The Immortals of Meluha (Book 1 of the Shiva Trilogy), encouraged him to give up a fourteen-year-old career in financial services to focus on writing. He is passionate about history, mythology and philosophy, finding beauty and meaning in all world religions. Amish’s books have sold more than 5.5 million copies and have been translated into over 19 languages.

BHAVNA ROY was educated in Mussoorie, Pune and Mumbai. After graduating in psychology from Mumbai University, she worked first as a volunteer in a school for special children in Malegaon, and later in an NGO in Nashik called SOS. She is the wife of the late Himanshu Roy IPS, senior police officer of the Maharashtra cadre. She lives in Mumbai.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a book by its cover
By Nikhil on 1 January 2021
I'll be honest - I did enjoy reading the book initially. It seemed like a good mix of storytelling and touching upon the core subject it is based on - Dharma - and its many facets. However as I continued reading I was majorly disappointed with one thing - more than half the stories and extracts are from Amish's own fictional books - The Shiva trilogy and Ram Chandra series - which I've not read. The title of the book says "Decoding the epics for a meaningful life" - so I was obviously expecting references to Indian epics such as Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the like but those are limited to very few in the book and more focus has been given to Amish's own fictional stories and characters. Others may find it to be OK but for me, these fictional stories simply do not carry the depth and meaning as the actual Indian epics..

5.0 out of 5 stars No INSPIRATION but TRANSFORMATION and it's ME who change myself
By Aditya Raj on 28 December 2020
Amish's books can be read 100 times and each time u will find a different and new facet of looking at life. As Mahatma Gandhi says , "It's better to read 1 book 10 times than reading 10 books at once", and his book totally applies to the quote above. Thoughtful, inspiring and deeply moved, rather i would say transformed myself from being an ignorant and lazy to a more calm, proficient and cheering person. Love you Amish Sir. I started with Suheldev and now i have completed The Shiva Trilogy, Immortal India and Dharma. Soon moving on my next to the Ram Chandra Series. I'm a bit upset about the book not having your signature on it, even i preordered it albeit i can feel you in your books. You truly blessed by Lord Shiva. Om Namah Shivay 🙏

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read.. would have been better if other epics were referred to more than Amish's own books
By Gagan Agrawal on 4 January 2021
I'd pre-ordered this book as I had immensely enjoyed all of Amish's previous books. Thus, expectations were high and thus book turned out to be a bit of disappointment.
I feel that Amish got caught into the classic trap of 'self promotion' and 'self indulgence' (more on this below). The book is in form of discussion between people who are discussing concepts like Dharma, Karma, meaning of life etc. However, when it comes to references, the characters discuss whether to refer to Amish's fictional books or one of the traditional epics versions (Tulsidas's Ramayana etc) and then they opt for Amish's book for reference! I think this is a big injustice to the expectations that the book sets up among readers.
Overall the book is very engrossing and easy to read, but had it used our epics little more, it would have been an even better book.
It would be a good book to read if a reader goes with zero expectations. For an avid reader, the book would certainly prove to be engrossing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good mixture of mythology + nonfiction
By Ronak shah on 28 December 2020
Review on youtube

2nd nonfiction book by Amish Tripathi

Dharma: Decoding the Epics for A Meaningful Life", offers practical, philosophical lessons drawn from ancient Hindu epics. It is co-authored by Amish's sister Bhavana Roy.

I enjoyed reading this book
This is a mixture of philosophy+ nonfiction+ mythology

If you're a fan of mythology and nonfiction you will enjoy this.

Here are my favorite chapter
The burden of envy
Listen to your heart
The present is what matters

Quotes -

When you find your purpose and rhythm in the universe, you are in a state of dharma. Even a lion on the hunt is in a state of dharma. And the hunted deer too.’

Remember, what is in the interest of the beehive is always in the interest of the bee. The opposite is not always true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dharmatic🕉
By Kush on 31 December 2020
I just loved it..It made me realise how symbolic the characters of our history are,their internal conflicts,dilemmas and which part they eventually took..Most importantly it introduced me to the whole concept lf Dharma vs Swadharma and how these two factors influenced the lives of our great ancestors .The Way Amish sir and Bhavna ma'am explained these dharmic concepts is just amazing light and can be very easily grasped..These dharmic concepts have been embedded into a conversation between few individuals and they discuss and debate about these characters from our history,they putforth really relevant questions which we despite knowing about these characters never asked, and the answers are equally satiating...I really really want Amish sir and Bhavna ma'am to write more such philosophical books and all these concepts were very easy to digest for a teen reader like me so imagine how beneficial this book will prove to be for all the adult readers..Highly recommended
