Dharma (chos). 'Dharma' (generally, and with a capitalized 'D') is the Buddha's teachings; 'dharma' (with a small 'd') refers to all phenomena including mental objects. With the small 'd' this refers to particulars of both these form and formless universes. Although technically this is supposed to be the case, many times the context is intermingled between the two. To be aware of the context you're referring to and/or relating to is of utmost importance. RWB
