Dharma/Dhamma

Is there a difference in these two?
Other than possibly different "schools" of Buddhism?

The definitions of both, as far as I can tell, they are really the same.

Thanks

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.

Just different languages - Sanskrit and Pali respectively.
This nature of mind is spontaneously present.
That spontaneity I was told is the dakini aspect.
Recognizing this should help me
Not to be stuck with fear of being sued.
