RITA





Basic Description:  Literally refers to the divine order.    Also termed as moral order, cosmic order, or cosmic law.  Humans are not the only ones who are subordinate to Rita; the gods are as well.  They are said to be its guardians.  There are three aspects of Rita: Satya (truth), Tapas (heat, passion), and Yagna (ritual offerings).  Satya gives good conduct the power to produce results.
