sv-DHARm IS THE ONLY
skND-Dev or kaartikey-Dev, second son of shiv-Dev
and paaARvti-Devi has this to say about the practice of sv-DHARm
(one's own DHARm) in one's daily life in skND puraan slok 18.104.22.168-39.
These slok are expanded with
explanatory texts to facilitate understanding of the veDik concepts
from other veDik texts without corrupting the original
sNskrut text of the slok.
"In the life after death, rich
possessions, fathers, mothers, sons, brothers, wives, relatives and others don
not help one. It is only DHARm that
helps one in the life after death.
A living being in the eternal sNsaar cylce of
birth and death is
born alone, by itself;
dies alone, by itself;
enjoys puANy (merit as dividend
and rewards of good kARm) alone, by itself; and
has to suffer the bitter kARm-fl
(rewards of kARm) of evil conduct alone by itself.
When a person dies his/her relatives abandon
his/her dead body on the grounds as if it is a piece of wood or a lump of
clay. They turn their faced away from him/her. Only
DHARm will follow his/her aatmaa (soul) that
passes away from the dead body.
Hence one who is desirous of performing
kARm in life to accomplish one's desired wishes should perform
kARm (life activities) by the rules and regulations of
DHARm. Only this way of performing
kARm to conforming to the tenets of
DHARm helps one in the life after death.
By getting sNsARg of
DHARm meaning coexistence and
intimate relationship with DHARm,
one can transcend the impassable tms of avidyaa,
that is the darkness of ignorance due to lack of knowledge of creator
bRHmH. tms of avidyaa eludes one and binds
one to the body thinking body is "I" rather than the truth of "I" being the
aatmaa of the person.
Like ants slowly building up an anthill, one
should without causing any injury to others, go on accumulating puANy
from DHaaARmik kARm which will be
helpful in the life after death.

DHARm is a
shkti of creator bRHmH. This
shkti is manifested right
at the start of any creation cycle in our bRHmaaND
(cosmic egg or universe) for empowering grandfather
pRjaapati bRHmaa-Dev to do his work of creating
creations. DHARm is part
of primary creative ttv called buDHDHi which is created
out of ttv called mht.
is the shkti
which gives foundation to the sustenance provided to all creations through the
process called sthiti.
Without the foundation of DHARm creations will not be able to sustain itself and will thus perish. viSHANu-Dev is ordained by creator bRHmH to establish, protect and make
sure that DHARm is upheld by
creations. To establish, protect and uphold DHARm is one of the primary reasons
for viSHANu-Dev has to take the 10
major avtaar (incarnations) in this mhaa-yug of 4.32 million years and
thousands other aNsh-avtaar which are
partial or secondary avtaar.
DHARm has 4 components: dayaa (compassion), daan (charity),
tpsy (penance) and sty (Truth).
As is a must in creation science,
DHARm has an opposite shkti called
Every body is familiar with aDHARm
in this current veDik
time era called kli-yug...with
corrupt governments, corrupt stock markets, corrupt trade systems, violent
societies, unjust societies....DHARm shkti
is only at 25 percent of its full power in kli-yug
and hence the tendency of humankind to commit all that is unpleasant and
injurious in life is predominant. DHARm
will decrease as kli-yug
progresses. This year is only kli-yug's
5014th year and has another 426,986 years to go before mankind will start living
again in krut-yug or
sty-yug, In sty-yug DHARm shkti operates at 100 percent
strength and thus one can live in svARg (heaven) in this
pruthvi-lok (earthly domain)....
