Dharma, purely means that I act through consciousness – right?

That everything I do, I do it purely and mindful of others, so as to be good natured, but more than just good nature.
Can anyone explain Dharma to me without sending me to another site?


  1. I have visited the external website on your behalf and have this to offer: –
    1 Performing duties of Hinduism
    in Hinduism, somebody’s duty to behave according to strict religious and social codes, or the righteousness earned by performing religious and social duties
    2. Eternal truths in Buddhism.
    in Buddhism, the truth about the way things are and will always be in the universe or in nature, especially when contained in scripture.
    **Dharma translated means Religion, simply sounds a tad exotic because it has a foreign ring to it, religion obviously is that well flogged horse all are woefully familiar with and avoid at all if possible, sometimes like the plague**

  2. Dharma means following the Path to Elightenment, through Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, etc.
    It is the belief and practice as taught by Buddha and those who follow in his tradition.
    It’s worth getting hold of a textbook, e.g. ‘The Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha’, by E.A. Burtt.

  3. Dharma or righteosness, is never defined in Hindu scriptures and is wonderfully explained as ” Put yourself into other’s man’s shoes and you do exactly, what you would expect if you were in the receiving end..

  4. Dharma also means phenomena as they happen. As such all phenomena are dependent on other things and impermanent.
    There are times that we don’t know that certain phenomena are happening; it’s not until we learn about them that they exist to us. In this way phenomena (dharmas) are dependent. It is also our minds that make phenomena (dharamas) good or bad.
    So, we should not be attached either positively or negatively to dharmas (phenomena).

  5. Everything is dharma. Thusly, everything is one and there is no distinction between the other. We operate and exist in this delusion and suffer from our own causalities simply because we find distinctions when there are no distinctions. We find differences in a whole as if we identified raindrops inside an ocean.
    That is the dharma. And to realize this, we must end our attachments to materials, forms, distinctions, emotional responses, and return our minds to within, back to our original minds… our original nature.. the buddha nature.
    The buddha employs so many teachings and expedients, using countless examples and lessons within our illusionary world, just to get us to realize this one true suchness in which everything is empty, thus a unity within itself without distinction.
    Buddhism is a study of living beings. Why? Because it is a tool and lesson to get us to listen within. We tune our listening to within in order to awaken our buddha nature… to realize the truth about ourselves, thus understanding the truth of the universe. Because the universe is a production and manifestation of the mind, by understanding the self, we understand everything else.
    So that is why buddhism can be a philosophy to some people. It can be a a way of life for some. It can be a faithful worship to some, and spirituality to another. It can be a religion to others. Thusly, the dharma, the buddha dharma, is everything. The dharma is everything, thus is can be anything. Based on our discriminating minds, the dharma is “something” to us in one way or another. We see these differences in the buddha dharma because we each have a personal level and style in reaching the same one truth of dharma. All divergent roads meet back at a single destination.
    Dharma is everything. Contemplate that and realize the perception and perspective of no distinction.
