Om2
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.
