What is the Vedic Dharma?
According to Hindu scripture, the Vedic dharma is everything. “Everything” means exactly that. It includes every physical object in the entire universe. Everything from the largest planet or solar system down to the smallest atom or sub-atomic particle. The Vedic dharma is not limited to tangible, physical objects. The Vedic dharma also includes the subtle, intangible forces that govern the behavior of the physical objects. These intangible forces include forces of nature, forces that rule over society, inter-personal forces, and forces that exist between humans and God, the divine.
Throughout human history, the very same characteristics of the Vedic dharma have gone by different names. The Ancient Greeks called it the Logos. Asian traditions call it the Dao. Modernly, it is known as the Natural Order. When applied to the structure of the universe and where a person can find his or her place in it according to the Vedas, it is called the “Vedic dharma.”
