Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

102) What exactly is Tattva?How many tattvas are there?

“Tattva” means that which is real.

There are three tattvas or reals. These are:

1. Jivatma. It is also called as Chit, Soul, Self, Atma and Chetana. It is sentient i.e., has Knowledge.

2. Achetana or matter or achit. It is non-sentient. i.e., dose not have knowledge.

3.Iswara or the Supreme Lord.

103)What is the most important principle or doctrine of our sampradaya?
The most important principle (pradhana pratitantra) is the body/soul relationship (sarirasariri Bhava or sarira - atma bhava) between sentient (Chetana), non-sentient (achetana); and Iswara.

The Brahman or Iswara is the soul and the other two reals (tattvas), chetana and achetana, form His body.

104) How do you define a body?

You can say that the body has legs and hands. The body of a serpent does not have any hands. Similarly, the shape and size of one body are different from that of another. A tree has a different body. An animal has a different body from that of a bird. The body of an elephant is different from the body of a mosquito. So, you cannot give physical characteristics to define a body.

There are three characteristics which decide what the body is

105)What are these characteristics?

The first one is that the body is supported by the soul. The body exists from the time of the soul entering into it, in the mother’s womb. The body continues and perishes or dies, only when the soul leaves the body. In other words, the body is supported by the soul. As long as the soul remains in the body, the soul supports the body. This is the first characteristic of the body. Even in a state of dreamless sleep, the body continues to exist. So, the soul fully supports the body.
