This is part of a series of stories exploring all aspects of the spiritual life. A journey that transcends rites, rituals, ceremonies, trinkets for sale, and all of the other elements of formal religious dogma.

What is Dharma?

Dharma is the principle of cosmic order and natural law that is brought to life experience as the regulatory order of the universe. In Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism, and Islam) only the belief in certain teachings such as the Talmud, that Jesus died on the cross to save mankind, or the Holy Koran is sufficient to allow a follower to be enlisted as a member of that religion.

Whereas in Dharmic religions and non-religious spiritual practices such as Taoism, Zen, or the Wisdom Path, certain obligations must be fulfilled to be considered part of the path or to even be able to say that one is “spiritual.” In the Wisdom Path, that thing is Love and selfless sacrifice.

Dharma is a key concept with multiple meanings in many Eastern religions, and there is no single word translation for dharma in western languages.

Takeaway

The person who immerses themselves in the Dharma is likely to have a life of meaningfulness, contentment, love, joy, and happiness.
