Falvey, B. L. (2008). Dharma as Man - A Myth of Jesus in Buddhist Lands. Retrieved from

Dharma as Man is an ancient story read each evening by an old man to his young son as they sit on a veranda in rural India. They read of a wise man, of the myths that grew up about him according to customs of storytellers of that era. They trace his attempts to relate his journey of personal development to live within the rhythm of the cosmos. It is a universal tale condensed to combine the world’s stories, which renders Jesus life into Buddhist concepts in an ancient Indian setting. It is not a religious book, and so will appeal to open-minded Atheists, Animists, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Judaists, Muslims, Taoists … and Zoroastrians. Its fluid style is uninterrupted by the copious endnotes and glossary which discretely indicate sources and translated ideas that add multiple layers to the saga. The life of this enlightened Dharma is our own essential psychological path told through the gospel stories freed from God and dogma. Lindsay Falvey was a Dean of the University of Melbourne and is a Fellow of Clare Hall at the University of Cambridge who holds various posts, degrees and awards. He writes on spiritual themes, and in his professional fields of international food, agriculture and environmental awareness.
