 +Dharma / dharma
 +
 +In [[Buddhism]],​ [[Dharma]] no longer has its [[Hindu]] meaning of [[religious duty]] according to one's class. Instead it has several levels of meaning including: the teachings of the [[Buddha]], which can be understood as: 
 +
 +1. "​[[Dharma]] with a capital D": ​ [[method]]s ([[Five Schools]] of teachings and [[practices]]) for becoming [[enlightened]]; ​
 +
 +2.  "​[[Dharmakaya]] / [[Tathagata Garbha]] / [[Dharma Dhatu]]": ​ The [[reality]] that one realizes at [[enlightenment]];​ and 
 +
 +3.  "All [[Phenomena]]": ​ The various divisions of the mental and physical world that are part of the teaching. ​
 +
 +---- 
 +
 +I. "​[[Dharma]] with a capital D": ​ methods ([[Five Schools]] of teachings and [[practices]]) for becoming [[enlightened]]; ​
 +
 +
 +"He turns the inconceivable,​ [[wondrous]] [[Dharma Wheel]], ​
 +
 +And makes known the [[conduct]] of the [[path]] ([[marga]]) to [[Bodhi]], ​
 +
 +Which destroys the [[suffering]] of all [[living beings]] forever."​
 +
 +([[Flower Adornment Sutra]] - [[Avatamsaka Sutra]]) ​
 +
 +[[Dharma]] refers to all the methods of [[cultivation]] taught by the [[Buddha]] which lead to [[ultimate]] [[enlightenment]] ([[anuttarasamyaksambodhi]]). ​ They are [[means]] to an end, not an end in themselves. ​ In other words, any aspect or division of the [[teaching]]. [[Dharma]] in this sense is an [[expedient]] [[distinction]] made for the sake of greater understanding. For example, the [[Five Skandhas]], the [[Six Paramitas]],​ and the [[Eighteen Realms]] are all [[dharmas]]. ​
 +
 + 
 +[[Monks]], as a man going along a highway might see a great stretch of water, the hither bank dangerous and frightening,​ the further bank secure, not frightening,​ but if there were not a boat for crossing by or a bridge across for going from the not-beyond to the beyond, this might occur to him: `This is a great stretch of water, the hither bank dangerous and frightening,​ the further bank secure and not frightening,​ but there is not a boat for crossing by or a bridge across for going from the not-beyond to the beyond. Suppose that I, having collected grass, sticks, branches and foliage, and having tied a raft, depending on that raft, and striving with hands and feet, should [[cross over]] safely to the beyond?'​ Then, monks, that man, having collected grass, sticks, branches and foliage, having tied a raft, depending on that raft and striving with his hands and feet, might cross over safely to the beyond. To him, crossed over, gone beyond, this might occur: 'Now this raft has been very useful to me. I, depending on this raft, and striving with my hands and feet, crossed over safely to the beyond. Suppose now that I, having put this raft on my head, or having lifted it on to my shoulder, should proceed as I desire?'​ What do you think about this, monks? If that man does this, is he doing what should be done with that raft?" ​
 +
 +"No, Lord." ​
 +
 +"What should that man do, monks, in order to do what should be done with that raft? In this case, monks, it might occur to that man who has [[crossed over]], [[gone beyond]]: 'Now, this raft has been very useful to me. Depending on this raft and striving with my hands and feet, I have crossed over safely to the beyond. Suppose now that I, having beached this raft on dry ground or having submerged it under the water, should proceed as I desire?'​ In doing this, monks, that man would be doing what should be done with that raft. Even so, monks, is the [[Parable of the Raft]] taught by me for [[crossing over]], not for retaining. You, monks, by understanding the Parable of the Raft, should get rid even of (right) [[mental objects]], all the more of wrong ones." ("​[[Alagaddupamasutta]],"​ I 134-135, , I 173-174) ​
 +
 +. . . The [[Dharma]] which I speak is like a raft. Even [[Dharmas]] should be relinquished,​ how much the more that which is not Dharma. ([[Vajra Sutra]] or [[Vajracchedika Prajna Paramita Sutra]] 49) 
 +
 +The raft of [[Dharma]] gives us something to hang onto as we eliminate our [[attachments]],​ which cause us to [[suffer]] and to be stuck on this shore of [[birth and death]]. The raft of [[Dharma]] refers to the [[methods]] of inward [[illumination]];​ it takes us across the [[sea of our birth and death]] and the sea of [[afflictions]] to the [[other shore]], [[Nirvana]]. Once there "even [[Dharmas]] should be relinquished." ​
 +
 +"The [[Dharma]] is spoken to break people'​s [[attachments]]. If people had no attachments,​ they wouldn'​t need the Dharma. But people have attachments because their [[consciousnesses]] ([[vijnana skandha]]) take over, and so they give rise to [[distinctions]] and attachments. If you let your [[wisdom]] ([[Maha Prajna Paramita]]) be in charge, you will have no attachments. . . ." ([[Vajra Bodhi Sea]] Issue #179 3rd door) 
 +
 +"There are no fixed, static dharmas. Because it is not fixed, the [[Dharma]] is alive. Dharma which is alive is separate from all [[attachments]]. It is said, 'One bestows the teaching for the sake of the individual and prescribes the [[medicine]] according to the [[illness]].'​ In the same way the Dharma is spoken as an [[antidote]] to an individual'​s specific [[problems]]."​ ([[Dharma Flower Sutra]] [[Lotus Sutra]] I 7-8) 
 +
 +----
 +
 +II.  "​[[Dharmakaya]] / [[Tathagata Garbha]] / [[Dharma Dhatu]]": ​ The [[reality]] that one realizes ([[realization]]) at [[enlightenment]];​ and 
 +
 +In this sense [[Dharma]] refers to the [[reality]] which is realized through the application of Dharma as [[teaching]]. It is the world of total [[enlightenment]]. See [[Dharma realm]], [[Dharmakaya]],​ [[Tathagata Garbha]], [[Dharma Dhatu]]. ​
 +
 +----
 +
 +III.  "All [[Phenomena]]": ​ The various divisions of the mental and physical world that are part of the teaching. ​
 +
 +----
 +
 +1) [[Chinese]] [[Mandarin]]:​ [[Fa]], 2) [[Sanskrit]]:​ [[Dharma]] , 3) [[Pali]]: [[Dhamma]]. ​
 +
 +4) Alternate Translations:​ [[method]], law, factor (of existence), [[characteristic]],​ quality, idea, category, state of existence, condition of being, [[truth]], true ideal, the [[Teaching]]. ​
