The Sanskrit for Being is ‘Sat’, and a derivative of it, ‘Satya’, may mean either Being or a valid understanding of it expressed in language. Religious experience, unlike sensory experience, is not something that happens to one simply because one is there, and this is because of the nature of religious reality, which transcends the spatio-temporal framework within which ordinary experiences are cast. The infinite and absolute character of what is experienced is expressed by the term ‘Being’, meaning Being as such which is not conditioned and limited by anything else, and so neither comes into being nor goes out of existence. The remarkable progress of scientific knowledge in recent centuries makes many people believe that the immature condition of pre-modern science is a result of lack of correct scientific objectivity and method, which were not available in those days.
