‘Amrita’ need not necessarily mean nectar that you drink. It need not necessarily mean something that excites the taste buds. ‘Amrita’ comes from the word ‘a-mrita’, meaning immortal. Deathless. In Sanskrit, when you prefix an ‘a’, it negates the meaning of the following word. So ‘mrita’ means death. ‘Amrita’—that which confers deathlessness upon a person. Again, it does not mean physical deathlessness. All the great sages have come and gone. No body remains forever. But there’s the realization there is something within us, which is immortal, which survives the body and which is realized by understanding the Gita. Therefore, it is the ‘amrita’.
