Dharma is one of the most powerful forces in life. A common English translation for the word Dharma is religion, but more accurate meaning is “that which sustains one’s existence” or “one’s essential characteristic.” Why? Because the root of this word is dha which means “to hold or maintain”. If you are connected with Dharma, Dharma holds and maintains you. It’s that simple. You are then maintained by a universal power far more greater then You could ever imagine, power that maintains the entire creation. Destruction and dissolution are signs that Dharma has been neglected to great extents.
