Buddha-dharma or Dharma vinaya.

This refers to both the system of analysis taught by the Buddha (recorded in the sutta pitaka of the Pali canon) regarding the causes of suffering (Pali: pariyatti) and the necessary course of action needed to be taken to undo these causes (Pali: patipatti)

Dharma isn't a concept within a religion like Hinduism or Buddhism. It IS religion. "Dharma" is the Sanskrit word for religion.
