What is Dharma? What is the Wheel of Life?

Understanding Eternal Law

Laws govern everything within our universe, from relationships and families to nature and society. However, if we don't understand these laws, they can often create a feeling of resistance in our hearts towards them. Still, the more we know they have been created with a purpose, the more we can quench our resistance to them and learn to exist within their divine protection.

What is Dharma?

With origins in the Sanskrit root word, which means "to hold," "to maintain," or "to preserve," Dharma is referred to in many eastern religions as the cosmic law that created an ordered universe amidst the chaos. Religion, righteousness, duty, virtue, merit, honesty, sect, justice, characteristics, faith. It is applied today in many other contexts, including human behaviors and ways of living that prevent life as we know it from descending into chaos.

To comprehend Dharma's hidden truths, we must first understand our creator's pure love. During the chaos created by Dharma, we learn to recognize how divinely protected and connected we are. 'achieving dharma' is all about; bringing the law to life and applying it to produce positive change. Despite our pain, we become a source of virtue. We let go of its hold on us while also letting go of its energy on others because we are no more extended examples of what doesn't work.

Individually, Dharma refers to a predetermined aim or purpose. A soul is born into a particular caste or social group as punishment for past actions. Both global rules and their choices determine their life path. The Bhagavad Gita says it is preferable to do one's Dharma poorly than another's. Focus on living your life to the fullest, so you can inspire others to do the same.

In a way, deepening our grasp of Dharma frees us from the pressure to 'hold someone's hand' and walk them through their troubles while empowering us to be a living example of how they might find peace and joy in their struggles.

Historical Perspective & The Wheel Of Life?

In ancient Hindu text, Dharma comes as a law that establishes that the order of chaos prevents each point of life. It is the one that maintains the wheel of life. It contains the concept of duties, behavior, and maintaining righteousness in that world. The primary meaning is that a person's work made a reason for living in their life. In Hinduism, the Dharma relates to the four ends of life, which applies to each one with truthfulness and generosity.


Religion is the concept that makes each person a unique identity. By that tradition, the people were known, which remained with them until death. Religion is where the whole life depends on where he believes in God or something else. Dharma is the three jewels of Buddhism, along with Sangha and Buddha, which lead a proper way of living.


In Hinduism, Dharma is the most important because it is where the whole life depends. They wanted to assign tasks that they should complete in their life. Thus, they become the people who achieve their purpose, and by that, they reach heaven.

Suppose you do not know about your Dharma. Then methods to help to achieve Dharma may be:

  • By concentration

  • By patience

  • By looking around the people and admiring them

  • Paying attention

How does Dharma relate to the wheel of life?

The Dharma is the one on which Buddhism lies, leading and giving knowledge about life, which tells what life is and how to live this life. The wheel of life surrounds and gives a piece of peace. Dharma is the concept related to each person, whether serving or doing something else.

By Dharma, the soul is born on any caste, which depends on karma on their actions from the past. That is the path of their lives. That is how they can recover their mistakes from the past, which is the universal law of life in Hinduism. It is the rule that can regulate the whole life to a better living. Thus, they came to the point where there is an aim only made by religion or the rules made in life. Once you understand the reason for your living, the next stage is upholding this life or maintenance, which is the main factor of life. This maintenance of any aspect of Dharma is the most challenging work.


Dharma is the cosmic law that brought order to an otherwise chaotic universe. According to the Bhagavad Gita, it is preferable to live one's life poorly than to live another's. Concentrate on living your life to the fullest extent possible to inspire others to do the same. In Hinduism, the Dharma speaks truthfully and generously about the four purposes of life. It encompasses the concepts of obligations, behavior, and upholding righteousness within that environment. The primary meaning is that a person's work provided them with a reason to live. They become those who accomplish their goal, and in doing so, they ascend to paradise.
