Concept of Sachidanandam in Hindu Tradition

As per the teachings of Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism or Hindu Tradition), the aim of human life is Moksha. When a person attains Brahman realization he is able to understand himself and the world – because he is always merged in Brahman. Such people are believed to be in a state of mind known as Sachidanandam.

Liberation or Moksha is possible only through self realization. Self realization happens when we are able to shelve the thought of the second. When we realize that all animate and inanimate is Brahman. To understand this we need not look outside but look inside.

The Bhagavad Gita, and all universal religious scriptures, teaches that to have meaning, satisfaction and happiness in life one must practice one’s duty. Duty means taking care of one’s self, one’s family, one’s community and one’s county, as well as caring for the human family and God’s creation. Duty also means discovering one’s nature-born qualities and developing one’s hidden talents so that our best is shared.
Compassion is our nature. It is blocked by the ego and develops when the mind is pure. The mind is purified by dispassion. Compassion means deep sympathy for the sufferer.
