OM TAT SAT


Young Indian boy dressed as an Indian diety in Pushkar, India
young devotee incarnation of the godliness of lord Shiva



within the walls of bigotry
narrow mindedness
faith confined
man made
artfully designed
to brainwash the mind
though faith is blind
both a blessing and a curse
to gullible mankind
a saint a sinner a dotard
in the temple of deceit
you will find
money the power
that binds
religiosity
that kills
more people on earth
than any natural calamity
I must remind
through man
his maker
in the witness box
innocent guilty all combined
truth watching justice
through a venetian blind
om tat sat
thus aligned


inspired by mr kowalski ...

Om Tat Sat is a mantra in Sanskrit that is translated to mean the 'Supreme Absolute Truth' - literally 'all that is'.

* Om refers to the Supreme Infinite Spirit or Person.
* Tat refers to 'that', or 'all that is'.
* Sat refers to 'truth', that which is not evanescent or ephemeral, the underlying basis, which is most fundamental and universal.

Sometimes Hari Om Tat Sat (Hari, the Lord, is infinite spirit - that is the truth) is also spoken as a variation, especially amongst followers of the bhakti paths.

[edit] Scriptural references

* "From the beginning of creation, the three words om tat sat were used to indicate the Supreme Absolute Truth. These three symbolic representations were used by brahmanas while chanting the hymns of the Vedas and during sacrifices for the satisfaction of the Supreme."

In the Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 17, Text 23) The Supreme God is designated as OM TAT SAT. OM means he is present in the whole world as regulator, the whole world is supported by him, and he is guNapUrNa. TAT means he is conveyed by vedas only, while SAT means he has no defects and is full of auspicious attributes.
