Svábhávika Dharma and Bhágavata Dharma is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in 1969. This discourse is the third chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 33.[1]


The object of both, svábhávika dharma and Bhágavata dharma, is the same: to get sukham [pleasure]. But in svábhávika dharma the intensity of sukham is limited, while in Bhágavata dharma it is beyond any measure, it is ananta.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that Dharma can be separated into two categories: svábhávika dharma (pertaining to the sustenance of the body) and Bhágavata dharma (longing for infinite happiness). Human beings are different from animals in that human beings can attain unlimited happiness. Anandamurti then explains the four elements of Bhágavata dharma.[1]
