The Classical Sanskrit noun dharma is a derivation from the root dhṛ, which has a meaning of “to hold, maintain, keep”

Wikipedia

Karl Friedrich Geldner in his translation of the Rig-veda employs 20 different translations for dharma, including meanings such as ‘law’, ‘order’, ‘duty’, ‘custom’, ‘quality’, ‘model’, among others.

In our home our dharma is performing our chores joyfully, consciously and dutifully. Some of us more regularly than others… depending on age and temperament.

  • Making beds
  • Feeding the animals and giving them water
  • Putting clean clothes away
  • Setting the table
