125-Sachchidaanandagalaatma Swabhaava rasa...

1.      English Translation:     "sat, chit and ananda are the inherent essential qualities of the atma. The life that we lead will put a veil on them and prevent us from seeing them. That is the reason we seek those qualities in the outside world. Life is like a sugar-cane, hiding the juice in it. We have to extract the pure essence (sat, chit and ananda) by subjecting it to the crusher machine. i.e. by leading this worldly life. This world is the sugar-cane-juice-extracting-factory." – Mankutimma
