"Satyameva Jayate" (satyam-eva jayate ) (Sanskrit: "Truth Alone Triumphs") is the national motto of India.[1] It is inscribed in Devanagari script at the base of the national emblem. The emblem is an adaptation of the Lion Capital of Asoka which was erected around 250 BCE at Sarnath, near Varanasi in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, but does not contain the motto. The origin of the motto is a well-known mantra 3.1.6 from the Mundaka Upanishad
