What Does Amrita Mean?

Amrita is a Sanskrit term that is literally translated to mean “immortality.” It is also sometimes referred to mean “nectar.” In fact, it is linked to the Greek word, ambrosia, and has a similar meaning as it is also a drink that confers immortality upon those who consume it.


Yogapedia Explains Amrita

The first recorded use of this word is in the “Rig Veda,” in which it is used to describe the drink known as soma that gives the gods the gift of immortality. This drink is also said to sometimes appear miraculously from the statues of Hindu gods, which is then drunk by the devout, who claim that it is sweet.

Amrita is also the name given to the holy water in the baptism rites carried out in Sikhism.
