REFERENCE ID 300264384
NOTES Refers to a key concept with multiple meanings in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. In Hinduism, dharma is the religious and moral law governing and enabling society and individual conduct. It is found in the early religious manuals called the dharmasutras and has been expanded into larger compilations of law called the dharmashastra. Dharma in Buddhism retains the Hindu sense of cosmic law and order but it also came to be applied to the teachings of the Buddha who is seen as a manifestation of the universal truth that is dharma. Thus, dharma is the practice of this truth in Buddhism.
