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

Discussion-2. "Satysm"  .....

But  in  the  spiritual  sense  of  the  term,  "SATYAM" should  play  in  the  field  of  the  intellect.

When  the  external  impressions  of  the  world  gathered  by  the  mind  are  filtered  through  the  intellect,  the  thinking-principle  in  man,  they  come  to  certain  judgments  and  thus  evaluate  the  minds,  men  and  institutions,  events  and  incidents.

Having  thus  come  to  a  discriminating  judgement,  if  he  were  to  compromise  himself  in  his  thoughts  and  actions,  and  thereby  come  to  think  or  act  his  thoughts  and  actions,  and  thereby  come  to  think  or  act  against  his  own  intellectual  convictions,  he  will  be  doing,  spiritually,  a  great  falsehood.

Thus,  when  one  is  convinced  of  the  God-theory  and  the  Divine  Nature  of  the  One  Self  through  observations,  analysis,  study  and  self-thinking,  to  act  thereafter  in  terms  of  animal  thoughts  and  the  undivine  emotions,  is  to  commit  'a  rape  of  the  soul'   which  is  sinful  criminality,  inexcusable  in  a  spiritual  seeker.

It  is  in  this  sense  we  have  here  in  this  mantram  the  word  "SATYAM" used.
