~Satyam~

Satyam is a Sanskrit adverb that means “truly,” “certainly,” “very well” and “necessarily.” From Sanskrit, sat, means “that which is true”; and yam, means “to hold,” “to tame” or “to examine.” When translated into English, it is often used as a synonym for the adjective satya (“true,” “truthful” or “authentic”) or for satya as a noun (“truth” in the spiritual sense or “truthfulness”). From a grammatical viewpoint, there is a clear distinction between satyam and satya, but it does not always come through in translation.
