The Meaning and Purpose of Dharma

The following quote by my teacher, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, is an outstanding short definition of what dharma is and how it can directly influence our day-to-day lives. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

‎”What we really need is knowledge, an understanding of the essence of Dharma, of the teaching of Buddha. Dharma indicates the dimension of everything that exists, and the teaching of the Buddha is called dharma because it is a key to discovering the nature of all phenomena through an understanding of our true condition. This is really the principle point, and when we discover our true nature it is like discovering everything.”—Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
