This is t he sense in which Sr i BhaTTar seems t o int er pr et t he nAma. Sr I vAsishTha int er pr et s t he nAma as meaning ' SaSvat , nit ya' - per manent , et er nal. The amar a koSa list s t he wor d ' sanA' as an indeclinable meaning ' per pet ually, ever ' , and gives t he def init ion - ' sanA nit ye' . The wor d ' sanAt ana' is der ived f r om t he wor d sanA. a) Sr I BhaTTar ' s int er pr et at ion is: t eshAm sambhaj anAt sanAt - Because He conf er s per f ect enj oyment on all t he mukt a-s equally, He is called sanAt . b) Sr I Sa' nkar a gives t he meaning ' ancient ' , ' of long dur at ion' , t o t he wor d sanAt - sanAt it i nipAt ah cir Ar t ha vacanaH - An indeclinable indicat ing a gr eat lengt h of t ime. One of t he manif est at ions of bhagavAn is as Time.

J ust as He is wit hout beginning and wit hout end, Time is also wit hout beginning and wit hout end. c) Sr I vAsishTha gives t he descr ipt ion - sanAt nit yaH avikAr aH ekar asaH it yar t haH - He Who is Et er nal, I mmut able, and always of t he same beaut if ul For m.

SanA is an indeclinable meaning ' nit ya' et c., as not ed in t he pr evious nAma. The wor d ' sanAt ana' is der ived by applicat ion of t he pANini sUt r a 4.3.23 (Sr I vAsishTha), t hat says t hat addit ion of t he pr at yaya her e t o a wor d having t he sense of t ime (sanA), leads t o t he sense of ' belonging t o' . Thus, t he t er m ' sanA-t ana' has t he meaning ' belonging t o t he et er nit y or ancient t imes' . Wit h t he addit ion of t he ' t amap' pr at yaya, t he meaning f or ' sanAt ana-t ama' is "The Most ancient ". He was pr esent bef or e anyt hing else was pr esent , and He is pr esent when ever yt hing else is dest r oyed dur ing t he pr alaya. So He is 3 sanAt ana-t amaH. Sr I BhaTTar comment s t hat even t hough He is ancient (pur ANa), He is always new, and is always mor e enj oyable and f r esh, as t hough He is new and not seen bef or e. I n bhagavAn' s case, He is ' pur A api navaH pur ANaH' . This is what is excit ing (t ama) about His ancient nat ur e - Ageless but new. Sr I BhaTTar uses t he t er m ' t ana' in t he nAma t o r ef er t o r Upam or f or m (t anu - Sar I r am). He r emar ks: sadA-t anat ve' pi t adA-t anat vavat nit ya nUt ana bhogyaH - Even t hough He has always had a body (sadA t anat vam), He looks like One who is j ust new (t adA-t anat t vam - One who has j ust been endowed wit h a new body), and is enj oyed as t hough He is new, and t his is why He is sanA-t ana- t amaH.
