In Hinduism, dharma is viewed as the underlying regulator of the universe. It is the principle of harmony and regularity, and thus provides a moral basis to all actions.

In Buddhism, dharma has two meanings. First, it refers to the teachings of the Buddha and other great teachers – their words and texts. Second, it refers to all mental phenomena (form, feelings, impulses, perceptions, consciousness). In the first case, the term is usually capitalized; in the second instance, it is usually written with a lower-case “d.”

Sounds to me very like some senses of a) the Word and b) The Holy Spirit or even c) love as the ‘magnetic’ force that holds everything together.
