This is not my definition, but a definition given to me by a bona fide spiritual guru:

"Dharma means the intrinsic nature of a thing. Just like the dharma of sugar is sweetness and the dharma of water is wetness. The dharma of the living being is to render service
to God. Therefore everyone serves God without fail, either directly or indirectly. The devotees serve Him directly and the non-devotees serve Him indirectly."
The above definition came from a qualified source, therefore I trust that it is an accurate definition.

Dharma, with a capital "D" usually refers to a (spiritual) teaching, and more often to the teachings of the Buddha. dharma with a small "d" can loosely be translated from Sanskrit as: "the way things are" or "reality."
Spiritual seekers meeting each other in India would ask, "Whose Dharma do you follow", as a way of asking whose teachings were followed.

The dharma of a thing is simply the way it is in reality.

A Dharma is someone you must hold onto. . he is the most lovable , loyal, talented, kind guy you could ever ask for as a friend, or a lover. he is someone you just want to run up to and hug, and never have him let go. everything about him is amazing. His smile can make your day instantaneously. ANYONE would be lucky to have a dharma in there life. if you are lucky enough to fall in love with one, you know you are protected. his endless amount of love is so amazing. he makes you feel like a princess (prince). The moment you lay your eyes on a dharma, suddenly you’re in love.

i love you dharmadude! kennedy <3

based on the idea that everything in the universe is causally linked. All things are composite things, that is, they are composed of several elements. Because all things are composite, they are all transitory, for the elements come together and then fall apart. It is this transience that causes human beings to sorrow and to suffer. We live in a body, which is a composite thing, but that body decays, sickens, and eventually dies, though we wish it to do otherwise. Since everything is transient, that means that there can be no eternal soul either in the self or in the universe. This, then, is the eternal truth of the world: everything is transitory, sorrowful, and soulless–the three-fold character of the world.
