    i just happened to be readin a book on the Dalai Lama and it says

    "Dharma has many connotations but no precise English equivalent. It is most often used to refer to the teachings of the Buddha...used in a general sence - to signifiy spiritual law, or the true nature of phenomena.....the word has a broader meaning: any behavior or understanding that serves "to hold one back" or protect one from experiencing suffering and its causes."

    kiz, you're right -

    Dharma
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Dharma or Dhamma means Natural Law or Reality, and with respect to its significance for spirituality and religion might be considered the Way of the Higher Truths. Dharma forms the basis for philosophies, beliefs and practices originating in India.

    The oldest of these, widely known as Hinduism, is Sanatana Dharma or Eternal Dharma. Ayyavazhi, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism also retain the centrality of Dharma. In these traditions, beings that live in harmony with Dharma proceed more quickly towards Moksha, Dharma Yukam, Nirvana, or personal liberation.

    Dharma also refers to the teachings and doctrines of the various founders of the traditions, such as Gautama Buddha in Buddhism and Mahavira in Jainism. As the religious and moral doctrine of the rights and duties of each individual, Dharma can refer generally to religious duty, and also mean social order, right conduct, or simply virtue.
