    Satyameva Jayate from Mundaka Upanishad

    Satyamev Jayate Naan Rtam
    Satyena pantha vitato devayana
    Yena aakramanstasya hyptakama]
    Yatra tat satasya paramam nidhanam

    The above shloka is taken from Mundaka Upanishad

    It has various interpretations and exposure but is not allowed to be forgotten because the Indian emblem contains it.

    I believe in one version; namely that Let truth stay alive and continue your path to ascertaining the truth.

    But whose truth is one to pursue?

    There are sattvic truths, rajasic truths and tamasic truths guiding humanity and all living creatures.

    It can only be what is pure and sincere that is to say the frame of mind that it totally unattached to material and spiritual concepts. I feel that sattvic guna must be defined in these terms because there is a group of people living very pious lives, a group that is rajasic which may be routinal work oriented and a nasty group that is tamasic or evil minded in consciousness.

    So according to my perception truth is not something that always prevails according to Sanatan Dharma; it has to be only sattvic truth that prevails and it is only sattvic truth that devas pursue to liberation and moksha.

    What do other members think of this analysis?
