Blog: Satyam Naiva Jayati सत्यं नैव जयति

Blogger: Yogendra Joshi
I started this blog long back, more than one year ago, but could not post newer entries to it for various unavoidable reasons. I now resume writing for this blog. I named this blog “satyamnaivajayati”, a Sanskrit term that  means Truth (satyam, सत्यम् ) Not Necessarily (naiva = na+eva, न+एव), Triumphs (jayati, जयति)। This blog-naming I based on some saying (Mantra, मन्त्र) of Mundaka Upanishad (मुण्डक उपनिषद्‍), where it actually is spelled “satyameva jayati” (satyam+eva jayati = सत्यम् +एव जयति), which means Truth Alone Triumphs. This saying in Mundaka Upanishad has been stat... Read more

The topics I want to comment on in this blog relate to a variety of social issues that play importance in the human society. I often find people mixing together the three terms: truth, perception and belief, not realizing that what they claim to be truth could be simply their perception or belief. I describe here how I would like to distinguish amongst these. Truth The Oxford dictionary defines truth something like this: “(1) the quality or state of being true; OR (2) that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality; OR (3) a fact or belief that is accepted as true” (oxforddictionaries.com) Another dictionary gives the definition with a little verbal difference like: R...

“Satyam Naiva Jayati” is my own coinage having a connotation opposed to “Satyameva Jayati”. In my earlier post (May 13) I stated that Satyameva Jayati (सत्यमेवजयति) – meaning “Truth alone Triumphs” – is a quote from ancient Hindu philosophical book Mundaka Upanishad. It teaches a seeker of spiritual advancement that the path of Truth – and Truth only – leads one to the highest goal of reaching Paramatma, the originator of this creation. The path of Untruth, or one of Truth mixed with Untruth, can only lead to spiritual failure. The Mundaka Upanishad is a scripture for one engaged in spiritual pursuit. The phil... Read more

I have named this blog “satyamnaivajayati”, which is based on the statement “satyam naiva jayati”. This is a statement in Sanskrit (language of most of the ancient Indian literature) that would be written in Devanagari script as “सत्यं नैव जयति”, meaning “Truth does not triumph”. I have chosen it to represent a view that is opposed to “सत्यमेव जयते” (satyameva jayate) which means “Truth alone triumphs”. “सत्यमेव जयते” (satyameva jayate) appears in the official emblem of the Government of Indian Union. It embodies the motto of the Government a... Read more

Government of India (that is Bharat – This is how the written constitution puts it in words) has a national emblem comprising the lion-head image based on the remnants of Ashoka Pillar at Sarnath (Varanasi). The emblem has also in its bottom part the words “सत्यमेव जयते” (Satyameva Jayate), which verily is interpreted to mean “truth alone triumphs“. I am starting this blog (satyamnaivajayati – सत्यंनैवजयति) with my comments on the “motto” – satyameva jayate (सत्यमेव जयते) – which in my opinion is neither correct in spelling nor does it hold good in this physical wo...
