Sanskrit, "cloud of virtue." In Hinduism, a degree of realization reached through meditation (Raja Yoga). In Buddhism, the highest level of attainment on the bodhisattva path.

"To one who remains undistracted in even the highest intellection there comes the equalminded realization known as The Cloud of Virtue. This is a result of discriminative discernment." —Patanjali, Yoga Sutras

"Dharma Megha in Raja Yoga means "the cloud of virtue". Just as clouds shower rain, so also this Dharma Megha Samadhi showers on the Yogins omniscience and all sorts of Siddhis or powers. The Yogi enjoys a form of freedom. Therefore, this Samadhi is called the Showerer or cloud (Megha) of virtue (Dharma). The Yogi enjoys expanded vision of God." —Swami Sivananda

"When a Bodhisattva renounces all of his psychic powers, when he radically eliminates the false idea that in order to be happy he needs something external, then a particular knowledge, a marvelous resplendence, will come upon him. In occultism this is called Dharma Megha ("cloud of virtue"). These types of Bodhisattvas can no longer fall; these types of Bodhisattvas possess within themselves all of the basis of knowledge; they enjoy the most profound peace, and from their hearts spring the substance of love." —Samael Aun Weor, The Narrow Way

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Let us think for a moment of the humanoid multitudes that populate the face of the earth. They suffer the unspeakable. They are victims of their own errors. If they did not have ego they would not have those errors, nor would they suffer the consequences of such errors. The unique thing required in order to have the right to true happiness is, before all, to not have this ego. Certainly, when psychic aggregates, the inhuman elements that make us so horrible and evil, do not exist within us, then the payment of Karma is non-existent. Thus, the result is happiness."

Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah
