Dharma is the sustenance of all things that are born or created. It is super nature that gives valences to atoms in an element. It is Dharma that is expressed as the quality of these elements. For instance, gold has a quality that it is untarnishable.
The human beings are like perfected instruments, like computers. Of course, if their Dharma is in balance, they are the best receptors. You can understand that the divine awareness is like the main electrical current which starts the computer (Self-realization). If the Dharma in the instrument is lacking, Self Realization does not give full results. It becomes like a second hand car. Dharma is the fulcrum and the one who is in Dharma never gets into imbalance. So the attention has to be on “Dharma”, the point where the gravity of sin does not act. The information of Dharma comes from the Unconscious but the movement from the fulcrum can take the human attention so much in one dimension or so much like a seesaw that ultimately the beam of life tilts towards one side, either towards hell or towards destruction. Because, if the extreme movements are like a seesaw, the delicate flower of human awareness becomes confused and people suffer from all kind of diseases.
So what must we do? The human beings have to come to the state of Gautama who became the Buddha. He searched in all earnestness and honesty. He gave up first all fake worldly preoccupations. This is not required but when he gave up all hopes of searching (the occupation of the mind), he accepted his defeat. He felt tired and fell at the feet of the Holy Ghost. Buddha had dharma. His body was clean, His mind the attention, did not find any joy in the worldly greed or desire. His cup was ready and it emptied when he was tired and surrendered and that was the moment: like torrential rain, the “Shakti” filled His cup and made Him the “Shakta”, the Enlightened One. So, when you are talking of virtue, you are warning them to keep the cup intact and clean.(1976/10/12)
Now we have got ten dharmas within us which we have to keep alright. These are the main ten commandments. These ten commandments we have to look after. And these are looked after by the people who are the [primordial masters| Ten Primordial Masters], as you call them “incarnations”… like Raja Janaka, like Moses, like Socrates, like [Nanaka|Guru Nanak], the last one was the [Shirdi Sai Nath|Shirdhi Sainath (Sai Baba)]...(1978/10/05)
