Hinduism And Hindu Theology - What Is Amrita Or Amrta?

 


The literal meaning of Amrta is imperishable. 


  • This term also refers to the elixir of immortality in Hindu mythology, which is churned from the Ocean of Milk by the joint efforts of the gods and demons. 
  • The term is often used figuratively to denote something cleansing and strong, such as charanamrta ("foot nectar"). 
  • The liquids (milk, water, etc.) provided to devotees (bhakta) to drink are frequently the same fluids in which their guru's feet or a deity's image has been washed.
