What is meant by Swadharma?

Swadharma is to know what your location is, and hence what is the direct route from your location to the destination. And only you can know that. You see, if you want to come to me and you are sitting there, you’ll have to take one route to come to me. And then, if you are sitting in a different direction, you’ll have to take another route to come to me.

Even if the destination is the same, the route taken will depend on your location. That is Swadharma.

Swadharma does not mean that you have a particular brand of religion. Swadharma does not mean that you have a particular concept of religion. In fact, to the contrary, Swadharm means – you have no definite religion; you have complete flexibility; you have complete dynamic freedom.

And only in this freedom is it possible to return to the Centre.
