Dharma comes from the root word of Dra, which means to uphold. It comes to mean right livelyhood, or the longing for fulfillment and the way we live our lives. Sianna shares with us a story from the Bhagavad Gita where Arjuna asks Krishna to show him the way, the way to his life’s contribution. We learn from this passage that it is better to strive in one’s own dharma than it is to succeed in the dharma of another. Nothing is ever lost in following one’s own dharma. Being who we are, really saying yes to who we are, is what makes us truly authentic.
