Dharma is not a ritual. The rituals of one community or religion could never become universal in history, nor can they ever in future. Orderly living alone can become universal which has happiness and well being of all. I understand the meaning of orderly living and participating in the universal order. I live that way and no one has any difficulty with me. In conclusion - human being’s dharma is only in the form of their living in universal order.
The living in universal order results in our always being resolved and continuity of our happiness. It is jeevan that becomes happy or fulfilled, which manifests as evidence of resolution in human being’s behaviour. We can accept that human being is happy if they evidence resolution in their behaviour.
