Part of the “yogin’s” path is to follow “The 8 Limbs of Yoga” as set down in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The 8 Limbs are: Yama (social ethics), Niyama (personal ethics), Asana (posture, sitting), Pranayama (breath regulation), Pratyahara, (internalization of the senses), Dharana (focus), Dhyana (meditation), and Samadhi (complete absorption). “Satya” is one of the “Yamas” that in Sanskrit means truth or truthfulness.
The truth that is meant by “Satya” is not just “truth” in the literal sense but means not intending to deceive others in our thoughts, words, or deeds. One must make it a practice to know what the truth is before speaking or writing. Much hurt and pain has been caused by rumor-spreading, gossip, and the fabricated written word.
My representation of “Satya” is the Sanskrit symbol, encircled within a heart. My daily prayer is: Dear (Lord, Mother), please help me to always seek the truth. Please help me to always speak the truth. Please help me to always live my truth. Let this Amulet guide you to know your own personal truth. What do you believe in? What do you stand for? Are you living your own truth; a life true to your own principles and beliefs?
