Dharma can be classified under two heads:

(i) Samanya or the general, universal Dharma and (ii) Visesha or the specific, personal Dharma.

 Contentment, forgiveness, self-restraint, non-stealing, purity, control of senses, discrimination between right and wrong, between the real and the unreal, spiritual knowledge, truthfulness and absence of anger come under the general or universal Dharma.

The rules of the castes and orders of life are specific Dharmas. These are the tenfold characteristics of Dharma according to Manu.
