 The term brahmacariya, which means noble life, is very significant synonym for the term dhamma. In ßAmaJJaaphalasutta of DN, Buddha’s preaching of dhamma has been explained as declaring noble life (brahmacariya).

ßo dhammaM deseti. AdiikalyaNaM majjhe kalyaNaM pariyosAna kalyaNaM sAtthaM savyaJjanaM kevalaparipuNNaM parisriddhaM brahmacariyaM pakAseti.

=He preaches the doctrine. He declares the noble life good at the beginning, good at the middle, good at the end with meanings and letters; and entirely complete and pure.”
