What is truth?

This question stemmed from a discussion on the subjectivity with religious doctrines in religion. How do we know what 'truth' is? Is truth true because an individual believes it, is it relative or definite? This question can be extended past religion to let's say, academia, politics, law and morality.

    Nov 8 2012: Cosmic Function defines the TRUTH for the Universe.
    The attribute is a dimensional Knowledge base- This is Nature's function.
    At the base level: Unity is the truth. Achieve it through Science, Philosophy and Religious dialogues
    For many, the spirit of Truth is bitter to digest. Psychology to accept the truth comes prominence.
