Sat- Chit- Ananda - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

In the spiritual world
Sat—is Truth—Absolute
Which has no substitute
It is the Exact Truth
And the Whole Truth
Which is the Supreme Souls's attribute
And is called the "Paramatma".

In the material world
Sat—is righteousness high
Which every human being
Is required to abide by.


In the spiritual plane
Chit—is consciousness plain
Referred to as the "Jivatma"—
The soul individual
Which is limited and indivisible.

In the material level
Jivatmas are infinite in number to label
And are in nature identical.
Jivatmas are the doer of actions—practical.


In the spiritual context
Ananda—is an aspect of Brahman
Which is eternal
When there is experience internal
To unite with Brahman.

In the material world, external
Ananda is pure joy
Attained through
Fulfillment of desires to enjoy
Material gains—ephemeral.

When Sat and Chit come together
There is Ananda (Divine Bliss) .

God is described in Hindu scriptures
As a combination of
Sat—Chit—Ananda!

    So when jivatma gets united with Paramatma, we derive Ananda - a heightened form of bliss! Thank you Chandra for this illuminating piece! (Report) Reply
