तदित्यनभिसन्धाय फलं यज्ञतपःक्रियाः।
दानक्रियाश्च विविधाः क्रियन्ते मोक्षकाङ्क्षि।।17.25।।
।।17.25।। तत् शब्द का उच्चारण कर? फल की इच्छा नहीं रखते हुए? मुमुक्षुजन यज्ञ? तप? दान आदि विविध कर्म करते हैं।।
Whatever prescribed Vedic activities performed by the Vaisnavas and brahmanas such as study of the Vedic scriptures and yagna or propitiation and worship by ritual to the Supreme Lord, tapah or austerities by the ksatriyas or royal warrior class and danam or charity by the vaisyas or merchant class are all done out of devotion and dedicated to the Supreme Lord Krishna or any of His authorised incarnations and expansions as revealed in Vedic scriptures without the slightest desire for material rewards. Such activities devoid of motivation for mundane results are designated as TAT signifying that such acts are for atma tattva or realisation of the immortal soul, perception of the brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence and attaining communion with the Supreme Lord. The Vishnu Sahasrasa confirms that: sah, vah, kah, klim, and tat denote the Supreme absolute. Hence the ontology of TAT has been demonstrated to signify its connection to transcendental and eternal activities which independently bestow moksa or freedom from material existence and promotion to the eternal spiritual realms.
