 ABOUT THE BOOK

THE COMPLETE TRILOGY OF ARTHA, DHARMA, KAMA
This box set comprises the complete trilogy on life's goals by
Gurcharan Das: India Unbound, on artha, 'material well-being'; The
Difficulty of Being Good, on dharma, 'moral well-being'; and Kama:
The Riddle of Desire, on kama, 'physical well-being'.

In his magnificent prose, Das examines how to cherish desire in
order to live a rich, flourishing life, arguing that if dharma is a duty
to another, kama is a duty to oneself. It sheds new light on love,
marriage, family, adultery and jealousy as it wrestles with timeless
questions.
