Dharma, seek and you will find
Truth within your mind, Dharma.
Dharma, each to his own we seek,
Together we'll and our stream, Dharma.
Truth is like freedom, it doesn't believe
Being true to yourself,
Never think that you're free.
Dharma will come eventually.
Dharma, Dharma, Dharma.

    General CommentThe version shown here is the live piece from the "Living in the Past" album. The original song was an instrumental piece on the "This Was" album.

    Ian has always hated the idea of using drugs to "expand the mind," or "achieve a higher consciousness." Ian has likened it to a person walking into a coffee shop and ordering "Dharma for one," hence the title.

    The live version seems to try to convey the true path to achieve Dharma.

    General CommentDharma is a Hinduism & Buddhism concept...
    To make it simple it is the ''the way'' one must take to work with the universe... It is the the guideline of conduct, to be undertaken to achieve happiness and enlightment... Like you can imagine, it is a teaching of love and respects towards everything you come across...

    I like how Jethro communicate the fact that we has living beeing are not completly free... I think the writer meant to say that ''Karma'' will come eventually... Therefore we are not free because whatever wrong actions we undetake will come back to nail us...

    Then again, Dharma also comes eventually has one lives...

    I also love the instrumental to the song... The drum solo is fairly good!
