CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM - 5. { Helpful  means  to  Self-realization }


Discussion-1. "Satyam, Ahimsa, Brahmacaryam"


Satyam  ( truthfulness ),  Ahimsa ( non-injury ),  Brahmacaryam ( self-control )  are  the  three  main  corner-stones  of  the  Temple  of  Hinduism.

Even  when  our  scriptures  enumerated  these  three  fundamentals  for  a  purely  godly  life,  they  took  pains  to  see  that  Satyam  ( truthfulness )  has  been  mentioned  as  the  first.

"Satyam"  is  that  which  is  not  false.

In  ordinary  transactions  of  life  we  mean  by  truthfulness,  a  complete  faithfulness  between  the  thoughts  in  the  mind  and  the  words  expressing  them.

If,  for  example,  we  are  thinking  that  a  thing  is  bad  and  we  say  that  it  is  good,  we  have  committed  an  adultery  of  conscience  and  in  this  instance  we  are  said  to  be  false  or  untrue.
