जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्


धारणाद्धर्ममित्याहुः धर्माद्धारयते प्रजाः।
यस्याद्धारणसंयुक्तं स धर्म इति निश्चयः॥
dhāraṇāddharmamityāhuḥ dharmāddhārayate prajāḥ|
yasyāddhāraṇasaṁyuktaṁ sa dharma iti niścayaḥ||
The word “dharma” is derived from verb “dhāraṇa“. It is “dharma“, which holds the people (society) together. Hence, if something is able to hold people together, it is certainly dharma.
