The Bhagawad Gita (Song of the Lord) starts with the word “Dharma” and ends with the word “Mama”. Dharma is normally referred to as religion, righteousness, charity etc. But, the true meaning of this word is “The Law of Being”. For example, the dharma of fire is to burn and the dharma of the Sun is to shine. In most Sanskrit compositions the first stanza gives an overall picture of the event being described and the last stanza corroborates it. So the essence of The Gita is “Mama Dharma” or “My law of being”.
