Truth and Myth

Truth (Satya) is beyond human body, mind and intellect. It is beyond all words, thought and images. It is like seeking direction for space. How do you show direction for space which is all pervading. Anything you point is a direction for space but that is not space !. Similarly Truth.
Similarly "Source of Existance". That is the reason it is said , total surrender - sharanagati is the way to reach the source. Dropping everything, all concepts.. and to be one with the Truth.
Truth when it is explained through human Intellect becomes - Darshana. Speculation about Truth becomes philosophy. Explaination of the Truth through abstract logic, Mathematics becomes science. Explaination of Truth through stories - heroes, heroines, demons becomes Mythology - Purana.

Everything has a bit of Truth in it. Be Mythology, Science, Philosophy or Darshana. But none of them are the "TRUTH". Truth can only be experienced by dropping all our concepts about Truth.
