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.

“When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to you life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought. A depth returns to your life. Things regain their newness, their freshness. And the greatest miracle is the experiencing of your essential self as prior to any words, thoughts, mental labels and images. For this to happen, you need to disentangle your sense of I, of Beingness, from all the things it has become mixed up with, that is to say, identified with.”
—Eckhart Tolle


The great Master Dogen said,

“To study the Buddha Way is to study the self,

to study the self is to forget the self, and

to forget the self is to be enlightened by the ten thousand things.”

To be enlightened by the ten thousand things is to recognize the unity of the self and the ten thousand things.


TABS: ten thousand things, word, labels, re-sacralization, thought, thinking, being, Beingness, itness, identity, false identity, the Buddha Way, self, Self, enlightenment, sacred,

Those souls who have the capacity and ability to receive the outpourings of the Kingdom and the confirmation of the Holy Spirit, they become attracted through one word. But people who 365 have not the capacity, no matter how much one explain the divine behests and advices or breathe the breath of the Holy Spirit, it will not make an effect; nay, rather they add to their hardness and heedlessness.

No sooner is the oil touched by fire than it is ignited, but the heat of the fire will not make any effect upon the black stone.

Now praise be to God that thou didst have a pure aim and great capacity so that as soon as thou didst hear the “Word” thou didst become attracted. Indeed this is one of the most great gifts of God.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 364)
