Jaiva Dharma – Nitya Dharma

Paramahaàsa Bäbäjé meditated upon the lotus feet of
Bhagavän Shree Krishna Caitanya, and began to speak: “O most
fortunate one, I shall describe to you the principles of dharma as
far as my knowledge allows. An object is called a vastu, and its
eternal nature is known as its nitya-dharma. Nature arises from
the elementary structure of an object (ghatana). By Krishna’s
desire, when an object is formed, a particular nature is inherent
in that structure as an eternal concomitant factor. This nature is
the nitya-dharma of the object.
