    Is Dharma anything like the Tao? Not that I under stand the Great Tao; I don’t and I’ve heard it said times without number that it is, in fact, unfathomable. But as far as the concepts go, are they anything alike do you think?

      Hi St. Ralph and thanks for the question. Unfortunately I’m in the same boat in not really understanding what the Tao is, so I’d hesitate to answer that question. That said, the dharma in early Buddhism is something that is cognitively comprehensible, whereas I think the Tao basically isn’t.

    The sole meaning of dharma is ‘that which supports’. All of the things that are termed as dhamma, such as law, teachings, phenomena, practise, path, duty, etc, are merely things that support life and particularly salvation.
