Lesson 2 - Satya

February 3, 2019

 

For February we will look at the second yama... Satya

 

 

Satya means being truthful to others in both words and actions, not telling lies, and following a path that is true and honest.  Satya has serveal parts that we should follow, as conveyed in the Manusmriti 4.138:

 

satyaṃ brūyāt priyaṃ brūyānna brūyāt satyamapriyam |

priyaṃ ca nānṛtaṃ brūyādeṣa dharmaḥ sanātanaḥ ||

 

Speak the truth that is sweet, do not speak a truth that is not sweet.  Do not lie to please.  This is the eternal dharma. 

 

satyapratisthayam kriyaphalaashrayatvam YS 2.36

 

By being truthful, whatever action you take will be successful.
