9. Law as the commons

Our humanity shows a particular nature; Natural Law in this context denotes what is natural to the human being. Human-made law may or may not reflect Natural Law, and tend to be short-term. Some traditions have formulated expressions of Natural Law, guiding us towards living together naturally and finding prosperity and freedom. The ten indications expressed in Sanatana Dharma such as Truth, Non-stealing, Purification seem to have immediate relevance to a more harmonious and natural lifestyle, and for the protection of The Commons.
