Sachchidananda" is a compound Sanskrit term that combines three words: "Sat" which means existence or truth, "Chit" which means consciousness or knowledge, and "Ananda" which means bliss or joy. Together, they form a term that refers to the absolute reality of the universe in Hinduism.
The first word "Sat" refers to the essential existence or truth that is the fundamental reality of the universe. It is the unchanging and eternal reality that exists beyond the realm of human perception or understanding. The second word "Chit" refers to consciousness or knowledge, which is necessary to experience and comprehend the truth of existence. The third word "Ananda" refers to the bliss or joy that comes from the realization of the ultimate reality.

It is a concept that is closely associated with the Hindu philosophy of Advaita Vedanta, which teaches that there is only one ultimate reality, and everything else is an illusion or Maya.
