These two words are used for the interval between a day and night -- a twilight; and the interval between a night and day -- a dawn. In Theosophical terminology Sandhi and Sandhya are also applied to the 'Dawns and Twilights' or 'transition periods' between two great ages such as Yugas or Kalpas. The length of a Sandhi or Sandhya depends upon the length of the cycle it precedes or follows. Sandhyansa, a compound of sandhya, and ansa -- portion, is applied to a part or portion of a 'Dawn' or 'Twilight'; and in some cases is used for the 'twilight' or transition period following a cycle.

WG Sanjaya, the charioteer of King Dhrita-rashtra and narrator in the Bhagavad-Gita.
GH Sanjaya A suta (i.e., a charioteer, as well as a royal bard who recounted the heroic actions of the king, etc.) of the monarch Dhritarashtra, also an ambassador of that king, bearing the family-name Gavalgani. He was granted by Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa the divine sight of seeing everything in minutest detail, so that he might thus recount all that he saw in regard to the conflict at Kurukshetra to the blind monarch Dhritarashtra. Therefore, as the opening stanzas tell, Sanjaya relates the preliminaries of the battle, at which time the dialog between Krishna and Arjuna occurs -- this dialog being known as the Bhagavad-Gita.

TG Sri Sankaracharya (Sk.). The great religious reformer of India, and teacher of the Vedanta philosophy -- the greatest of all such teachers, regarded by the Adwaitas (Non-dualists) as an incarnation of Siva and a worker of miracles. He established many mathams (monasteries), and founded the most learned sect among Brahmans, called the Smartava. The legends about him are as numerous as his philosophical writings. At the age of thirty-two he went to Kashmir, and reaching Kedaranath in the Himalayas, entered a cave alone, whence he never returned. His followers claim that he did not die, but only retired from the world.
FY Sankaracharya, the great expositor of the monistic Vedanta Philosophy, which denies the personality of the Divine Principle, and affirms its unity with the spirit of man.
WG Sankaracharya, one of the great teachers of Brahminism; said to be a reincarnation of Gautama Buddha.
SKo Sankaracharya, Acharya, Vedanta Sankaracharya was an Avatara who lived in India from 510 B.C. to 478 B.C. * He was a great religious reformer and was one of the greatest exponents of the Vedanta philosophy. Vedanta is a compound of veda -- knowledge, and anta -- end or completion; hence the Vedanta philosophy presents an illuminated interpretation of the Vedic writings. Because of the light and wisdom he brought to India he was called Sankaracharya, a compound meaning 'blessed spiritual teacher,' from sankara -- blessed, and acharya -- spiritual guide. [* Second Printing of Second Edition by Point Loma Publications, Inc., Editors believe the dates to be 788 A.D. to 820 A.D.]
SP Sankaracarya -- the master (acarya) Sankara [Samkara], great thinker and commentator of the Advaita school of Vedanta philosophy. Sankara also founded a set of monasteries and his most important successors among the abbots use Sankaracarya as a title.

TG Sankhya (Sk.). The system of philosophy founded by Kapila Rishi, a system of analytical metaphysics, and one of the six Darshanas or schools of philosophy. It discourses on numerical categories and the meaning of the twenty-five tatwas (the forces of nature in various degrees). This "atomistic school", as some call it, explains nature by the interaction of twenty-four elements with purusha (spirit) modified by the three gunas (qualities), teaching the eternity of pradhana (primordial, homogeneous matter), or the self-transformation of nature and the eternity of the human Egos.
WG Sankhya, one of the great systems of Indian philosophy, -- a speculative system as broadly distinguished from the practical, or that based upon exercise of the moral and religious duties. (Literally, "the summing up [of philosophy].")
GH Sankhya (or Samkhya) The name of the third of the six Darsanas or Hindu schools of philosophy, which may be rendered 'the school of reckoners.' It was so called because this school divided or 'reckoned' the universe (and likewise man, as a child of the universe) into 25 elementary principles (Tattwas) -- 24 of which formed the vehicles or bodies in which the true self (Purusha) works. This school was founded by Kapila (q.v.). H. P. Blavatsky states that the system was established by the first Kapila (as stated in the Puranas) and written down by the last Kapila, the sage and philosopher of the Kali-yuga period. (Secret Doctrine, II, p. 572) There were several sages of the name of Kapila. (The following word is derived from the verbal root:) khya+sam, Meaning of the word itself: to reckon, to enumerate.

SKf Sankhya, Kapila The Sankhya is a school of Hindu philosophy founded by Kapila. This school divides the Universe, or man, into a Purusha (Spirit) and twenty-four Tattwas (manifested Principles). Hence the name Sankhya, derived from the verb-root samkhya -- to enumerate. The goal of this philosophy is to free the Purusha from these encasing Principles or Tattwas.

Judge, p. 44)
SKv Sannyasa The renunciation of all external and worldly bonds in order to devote one's life to the higher intellectual and spiritual culture and service. Sannyasa is a general term which embraces the three Yogic attainments of Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. The word is derived from the verb-root as -- to throw, and ni -- down, and sam -- together; hence meaning 'to throw or lay aside, to renounce.'

FY Sannyasi, a Hindu ascetic whose mind is steadfastly fixed upon the Supreme Truth.

The History, Development, and Character of Sanskrit by Judith Tyberg
TG Sanskrit (Sk.). The classical language of the Brahmans, never known nor spoken in its true systematized form (given later approximately by Panini), except by the initiated Brahmans, as it was pre-eminently "a mystery language". It has now degenerated into the so-called Prakrita.
SKo Sanskrit, Devanagari Sanskrit is the mother of Aryan languages. It is the developed and perfected form of a very early Aryan tongue; hence the name, from Sanskrita, a word meaning 'perfected,' 'polished.' This original natural language was worked upon and added to and improved by the Initiates of the ancient temples of wisdom in order that it could express more clearly the profound and mystic god-teachings that had been entrusted to them. Thus it has often been called the 'language of the gods.' Devanagari is the alphabetical script of Sanskrit. Devanagari is a compound of deva -- god, and nagari -- city; hence it is the divine-city writing, or in other words, the temple-script.

TG Sarcophagus (Gr.). A stone tomb, a receptacle for the dead; sarc = flesh, and phagein = to eat. Lapis assius, the stone of which the sarcophagi were made, is found in Lycia, and has the property of consuming the bodies in a very few weeks. In Egypt sarcophagi were made of various other stones, of black basalt, red granite, alabaster and other materials, as they served only as outward receptacles for the wooden coffins containing the mummies. The epitaphs on some of them are as remarkable as they are highly ethical, and no Christian could wish for anything better. One epitaph, dating thousands of years before the year one of our modern era, reads: -- "I have given water to him who was thirsty, and clothing to him who was naked. I have done harm to no man." Another: "I have done actions desired by men and those which are commanded by the gods". The beauty of some of these tombs may be judged by the alabaster Sarcophagus of Oimenephthah I., at Sir John Soane's Museum, Lincoln's Inn. "It was cut out of a single block of fine alabaster stone, and is 9 ft. 4 in. long, by 22 to 24 in. in width, and 27 to 32 in. in height. . . . Engraved dots, etc., outside were once filled with blue copper to represent the heavens. To attempt a description of the wonderful figures inside and out is beyond the scope of this work. Much of our knowledge of the mythology of the people is derived from this precious monument, with its hundreds of figures to illustrate the last judgment, and the life beyond the grave. Gods, men, serpents, symbolical animals and plants are there most beautifully carved." (Funeral Rites of the Egyptians.)

OG Sarira -- (Sanskrit) From a root which can best be translated by saying that it means what is easily dissolved, easily worn away; the idea being something transitory, foam-like, full of holes, as it were. Note the meaning hid in this -- it is very important. A term which is of common usage in the philosophy of Hindustan, and of very frequent usage in modern theosophical philosophy. A general meaning is a composite body or vehicle of impermanent character in and through which an ethereal entity lives and works. (See also Linga-Sarira; Sthula-Sarira)

FY Sat, the real, Purusha.
WG Sat, truth, "be-ness," self-existence; one of the aspects of Parabrahmam.
OG Sat -- (Sanskrit) A word meaning the real, the enduring fundamental essence of the world. In the ancient Brahmanical teachings the terms sat, chit, ananda, were used to signify the state of what one may call the Absolute: sat meaning "pure being"; chit, "pure thought"; ananda, "bliss," and these three words were compounded as sachchidananda. (See also Asat)
GH Sat Being, or rather Be-ness -- the state of existence. The term is used as the Real (true being), in contradistinction to Asat (the illusory world). In the Vedanta it is equivalent to the self-existent or Universal Spirit (Brahman). "Sat is in itself neither the 'existent,' nor 'being.' SAT is the immutable, the ever present, changeless and eternal root, from and through which all proceeds. But it is far more than the potential force in the seed, which propels onward the process of development, or what is now called evolution. It is the ever becoming, though the never manifesting." (Secret Doctrine, II, p. 449) (present participle of (The following word is derived from the verbal root:) as, to be. Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 119)
SKv Sat, Asat Sat is 'Reality,' 'Truth,' the 'Be-ness' or 'Essence' of all things, that which is enduring. Sat is a name given by the Vedantins to Brahman, the Universal Self. Asat is 'unreality,' 'untruth,' 'non-being,' that which does not endure. Asat is usually applied to the illusory or mayavi realms of the manifested universe, to the shadowy or reflecting side of nature, and to the vehicles and bodies through which the Self evolves. But Asat may also be rendered in a highly mystical sense as 'that which is beyond Sat,' that which is so lofty and divine that it seems to us as non-existence. It is that boundless and eternal Space or Parabrahman out of which Sat itself springs. The word Sat is the present participle-form of the verb-root as -- to be; hence 'being.'
IN Sat (Skt) "Truth, reality, pure being'' -- the essence of Brahman.
SP Sat -- reality, being. The opposite of asat, unreality, nonbeing.

OG Sattva -- (Sanskrit) One of the trigunas or "three qualities," the other two being rajas and tamas. Sattva is the quality of truth, goodness, reality, purity. These three gunas or qualities run all through the web or fabric of nature like threads inextricably mingled, for, indeed, each of these three qualities participates likewise of the nature of the other two, yet each one possessing its predominant (which is its own svabhava) or intrinsic characteristic. One who desires to gain some genuine understanding of the manner in which the archaic wisdom looks upon these three phases of human intellectual and spiritual activity must remember that not one of these three can be considered apart from the other two. The three are fundamentally three operations of the human consciousness, and essentially are that consciousness itself.
GH Sattva (or Sattwa) The quality of truth, goodness, purity: one of the three qualities (Trigunas) running through the web or fabric of Nature. (See Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. chapters. xiv and xviii.) (sat, being; tva -- a noun-suffix, hence: 'true essence.' Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 16)
