The Dharma Initiative.

I recently finished the first two seasons of LOST.  The show has been over for awhile, but my roommates both loved it and I thought I’d give it a shot.  If you haven’t seen the show a large portion of the plot revolves around ‘The Dharma Initiative.’

‘Dharma’ is never defined in LOST.  ‘Dharma’ is a Sanskrit word that translates to ‘the moral law combined with spiritual discipline that guides one’s life.’  It can also mean ‘upholding the order of the universe’.  I have always personally understood it to mean following your true path or destiny.  For example, teaching yoga is my Dharma.

However, I think Ellen DeGeneres put it best:

“Follow your passion. Stay true to yourself. Never follow someone else’s path
unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path. By all means, you
should follow that.”
