  • Easwaramma (Namagiriamma): The name of Sai Baba's mother (Easwaramma Day: 6th of May, and is dedicated to the service of children by children) (SSS-IV) Namagiriamma was the actual name of Easwaramma, given by her parents. As Kondama Raju recognized My divinity, he told his son, Pedda Venkama Raju to change her name to Easwaramma as he was very well aware that she was the mother of Easwara Himself (Discourses-d12)
  • Ekâdasi: The day of fasting at the eleventh day after the new and the full moon. To the 'stage of no 'kuntitha' or dullness or stupidity, mutilation or misery: on the Ekadasi Day, dedicated to the winning of that stage, the gates of Vaikunta are open for those who have achieved success in the struggle for overcoming the handicap of ignorance.' (SSS-II) Ekâdasi - the eleventh: when the ten senses are coordinated and turned towards God, then the doors of Heaven will certainly open, welcoming you into the presence of the Eleventh, that is God (SSS-III)
  • Ekam eva adwithiyam Brahma: One only, without a second, is Brahma. (SSS-III)
  • Ekoham Bahusyam: 'I am One, let me become many,' (SSS-III)
  • Elements: water, fire, earth, air and ether. In a broader sense one also speaks of sixteen elements together with the intelligence and the ten working and perceiving senses. There are also divisions with 24 or 25 elements: the material elements, the subtle elements (the five objects of the senses: odor, color, touch and sound), the ten senses of perception and action, spirit, intelligence, ego and consciousness with the element of time as the twenty-fifth element. [see also S.B.: 3-26:11-15, 6.1:50].
    - S'rîla Prabhupâda, purport
    10.13: 52: 'The twenty-four elements are the five working senses (pan'ca- karmendriya), the five senses for obtaining knowledge (pan'ca-jn'ânendriya), the five gross material elements (pan'ca-mahâbhûta), the five sense objects (pan'ca-tanmâtra), the mind (manas), the false ego (ahankâra), the mahat-tattva, and material nature (prakriti). All twenty-four of these elements are employed for the manifestation of this material world.'
