Citta (devanāgarī: चित्त) is a Sanskrit word that means derived from the root cit, "to be conscious". Chitta is frequently regarded as "the mind-stuff" beings the store-house of memory. Since the saṃskāra or impressions of actions are imbedded there, it is seen as the subconscious mind. In Hinduism it is one of the four parts that form the antahkarana (the "inner organ"), the other three being manas (the mind), buddhi (the intellect), and ahamkāra (the ego).
