Dharma:

Today’s session is focused on Dharma.

What is Dharma?


In Hinduism, ‘dharma’ means duty, religion, virtue and morality; it is a central part of a Hindu’s daily life.


Hindus believe that there are right and wrong ways to behave so they must behave correctly, follow the moral law and take their duties seriously.


According to dharma, it is best to do the right thing at all times.
