Dharma - an essential subject
A good citizen follows the laws of the state. Those who disobey those laws are known as outlaws. It is the duty of good citizens to abide by the laws of the state. To follow dharma means to follow the laws of holy scriptures. It is the duty of a dharmī, a person who is religious to abide by the laws of God. One who is not abiding, he is an adharmi.
Dharma is a basic principle principle for human civilization. If there is no dharma, then it is a society of animals. Dharma is meant only for human society. In animal societies there is no religion. They know not the difference between the body and the soul. It is not their business.
Dharma is the business of the human beings. So real dharma, real religion is to become servant of God and render service to God. That is real religion.
