Chit is the basis for the phrase sat-chit-ananda, which means means "truth, consciousness, and bliss." According to Hindu philosophy, sat, chit and ananda are one. Together, they make up Brahman, or Supreme Consciousness and Absolute Reality. An individual attains liberation (moksha) upon realizing that Brahman is all that exists, and that sat-chit-ananda is the purest experience of that Absolute Reality.
A core principle of yoga philosophy, chit is related to perception, intelligence and memory. Yoga practice and meditation helps to stabilize the practitioner's chit, thereby aiding in perception and intelligence.
