I use a few Sanskrit words repeatedly in my posts, and I just wanted to give a broad definition of each of them:
Jiva = a person
Maya = the world
Ishvara = the creator
Sattva = a clear, peaceful energy
Moksha = enlightenment
These are very broad definitions and do not convey the subtlety of the Sanskrit, nor the more complex meanings unfolded in the Vedanta teaching. But they are close enough to give you the general idea.
