bu-curious word of the day

by vanessagobes

In my spiritual-not-religious days, I remember reading a whole bunch of arma-asha-assina eastern religion blabitty-blab-vocab in my books and yoga mags.  I read the words over and over again, trying to commit them to memory, but nothing would stick.  I decided that a whole bunch of yogi words, when jumbled together, sound exactly the same.  And they all start with D, S or V.  It’s impossible to keep them straight.  I encountered arma-asha-assina over and over again in books and pamphlets and websites, but still, I could not decipher one from the next or remember what they meant.  I started highlighting and post-it-noting the words in books.  STILL, nothing.   But I want to learn.  I won’t give up.  So let’s do this together.  One word at a time.  We’ll start simple.

Doesn’t get much more basic than this, Bu-curious word of the day is dharma.

DHARMA:  Pronounced “darma”.  Simply put, dharma is law.  But it is so much more.  It is pure and divine truth, the divine order of the universe, the central teaching of the Buddha.

Feel free to use it in a sentence today.  If you’re feeling crazy, share that sentence here.

From mine to yours,

Vanessa
