Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram.
I want this on my body somewhere, for three reasons. The first is that its the name of a song I love. The second is my love of studying Hinduism and other East Asian religions. The third is its beautiful meaning.
It has a direct translation and a more accurate indirect translation.
The direct translation is “Truth, Auspiciousness, Beauty”.
But the indirect translation is closer to the actual meaning:
“Truth is God and God is Beautiful”
Of course, I’ll spend sometime with Professor Perdue evaluating the accuracy of the Sanskrit above before putting it on myself. I also have to figure out where.
