“A person who follows his own dharma, attains perfection…Better your own dharma, performed badly, than the dharma of another well discharged…”
To follow your dharma means to live the life that is uniquely suited to who you authentically are–and to live it with ethics and skill. When we know and follow our dharma, we are living in full alignment with our highest potential. Everyone’s dharma is unique, but certain universal principles apply even to the most individual life path.
In this telecourse, we’ll use key verses in the Bhagavad-Gita and the Mahabharata to explore the subtleties of personal and collective dharma. We’ll work with contemplations and inquiries to look at how you can make decisions on personal dharma and to understand more deeply what right action is for you, in any given situation. We’ll also explore what it takes to navigate a genuine life dilemma, through the essential principles of right action.
It will be a powerful and illuminating experience for all of us, as we look at what it means to chart a life path.
