just gimme some truth

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) philosopher, astronomer and mathematician

last weekend friends from up north were in town visiting, I immediately noticed their license plate. I didn't know precisely what satya meant and had to ask. I was informed that satya is a sanskrit word which is means truth and love. knowing the meaning, their custom plate is even more special given the motto for ontario - yours to discover.

wikipedia has a pretty good entry on satya for those curious cats out there. this really struck a chord in my heart "Satya is the benevolent use of words and the mind for the welfare of others." I do believe I've discovered a new mantra....satya

john lennon's classic song 'gimme some truth' although written in 1971 the sentiments of the lyrics still ring true today.

just in case you'd like to sing along:
I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocritics
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth
I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope
Money for rope

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of soap
Money for dope
Money for rope

I'm sick to death of seeing things
From tight-lipped, condescending, mamas little chauvinists
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth now

I've had enough of watching scenes
Of schizophrenic, ego-centric, paranoiac, prima-donnas
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of soap
It's money for dope
Money for rope

Ah, I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth now

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth now

All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth now
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

Satya. I like that. I am sure that this will pop up in some paper I write in the future so thanks again.

It was already your mantra, you just didn't know the word...

Can't ever get enough from John!

Understanding truth is one thing; accepting it is another. Galileo himself was forced to recant, and spent the last nine years of his life under house arrest.

A lovely word. After checking the link you provided, I see we have 427,000 years to wait before we make it to the Satya Cycle. So I guess we'll just concentrate on doing the best we can, until we get there. :-)

LOVED my first visit to your blog! Sanskrit has some incredible words. I learned a new one today... Satya. Thank you so much!

This is the first time on your blog and I enjoyed my time here. A post with John Lennon has true meaning! He is a great writer and I always loved his music because of the words behind the music.
