visvatma Dharma


Learning to be pure finding santosa or contentment or svadhyaya, the reading of the scriptures are all aspects of entering the dhaama or sheltered asrama for arjava, upright meditation on the absolute.  Teaching is the main focus of a BRAHMIN once the aspects of jnana are in his sight.
