Dharmata is a Sanskrit term meaning “truth” or the way things are in reality. The Buddha illuminated the truth in clear and brilliant ways, and his timeless teachings are responsible for the inner realization of countless people. He pointed to the source of suffering as inner delusion that does not know the truth. Awakening to the truth is the only way to bring about the end of suffering and the blossoming of freedom and joy both individually and collectively.
