Dharma: Is your life’s purpose. Think of it as your external spirituality. When you ask yourself the question “How can I best serve society?” you are asking a dharmic question. The area of life known as Dharma is that which relates to moral, ethical and evolutionary behavior. We can best serve society & ultimately ourselves by knowing and engaging in our dharma daily. At the end of life feelings of fulfillment come from having engaged appropriately with our Dharmic path.
It is essential to the whole health of society that each person engage in their specific Dharmic path. It takes an equal share of all 5 Dharmas to make society function well. The five Dharmic Paths are: Teacher/Counselor, Protector, Business Person, Service, Rebel.
