Dharma Canada Association is a non-profit organization founded in March 2010 with the goal of organizing events: workshops, seminars, conferences and group meditations to foster a noble way of living, notably to bring about peace, Universal Brotherhood and Self-Realization.
The Association finds its roots in the teachings of the Indian sage, Śrī Tathāta whose mission is the uplift of humanity by returning Dharma in the Vedic tradition of practices thus raising it to supreme consciousness.
Dharma means: right living. It is the eternal law of cosmic order, an enlightened and noble way of living for humanity at the individual and collective level.
EXCERPT FROM AN INTERVIEW OF SRI TATHATA BY NATHALIE CALMÉ, FOR SOURCES MAGAZINE, 2007
You say that spirituality is not religion…? Is not this universal spiritual water contained in your teaching the hundreds of Westerners are really thirsty of?
Yes, there is a difference between the religion and spirituality. The teaching of Dharma by the Rishis – the mystic visionaries of India – was not a religion. Dharma is another word to qualify the “ultimate Reality”. In that way, the teaching of the Rishis was universal. The religions, coloured by specific cultures, are used as intermediaries between the human beings and the ultimate Reality. But Dharma transcends all the limitations, the cultures, the religions and opens to infinite divine consciousness. Dharma is beyond all categories and concerns humanity as a whole. A Moslem, a Jew or a Christian can follow the way of Dharma without denying his religion. The evolution of consciousness is enabled by this universal practice of Dharma. When one practices Dharma, one reaches the highest levels of consciousness. Dharma is a song written for all. There no Indian or French Dharma! Ultimate Reality has to be apprehended as Whole. At this level of consciousness, all distinctions of cultures or religious belonging disappear. Dharma is One. The Ultimate Reality is One. The Truth is One. The ultimate happiness is One.
