 idám [ idam ]

1 ayám, iyám, idám ( fr. id Uṇ. iv, 156 ; gaṇa sarvâdi Pāṇ. i, 1, 27; Vop. ; a kind of neut. of the pronom. base 3. i with am [ cf. Lat. is, ea, id, and idem ] ; the regular forms are partly derived from the pronom. base a ; see Gr. 224 ; the Veda exhibits various irregular formations, e.g. fr. pronom. base a, an inst. enā', ayā' (used in general adverbially), and gen. loc. du. ayós, and perhaps also avós, in RV. vi, 67, 11 ; vii, 67, 4 ; x, 132, 5 [ BRD. ] ; fr. the base ima, a gen. sing. imásya, only RV. ; the RV. has in a few instances the irregular accentuation ásmai, v, 39, 5, etc. ; ásya, iv, 15, 5, etc. ; ā'bhis, vi, 25, 2, etc. : the forms derived fr. a are used enclitically if they take the place of the third personal pronoun , do not stand at the beginning of a verse or period, and have no peculiar stress laid upon them )

this, this here, referring to something near the speaker

known, present

( opposed to adas e.g. ayaṃ lokaḥ or idaṃ viśvam or idaṃ sarvam, this earthly world, this universe ; ayam agniḥ, this fire which burns on the earth ; but asāv agniḥ, that fire in the sky, i.e. the lightning : so also idam or iyam alone sometimes signifies ' this earth ' ; ime smaḥ, here we are. )

Idam often refers to something immediately following, whereas etad points to what precedes ( e.g. śrutva^itad idam ūcuḥ, having heard that they said this).

Idam occurs connected with yad, tad, etad, kim, and a personal pronoun, partly to point out anything more distinctly and emphatically, partly pleonastically ( e.g. tad idaṃ vākyam, this speech here following ; so 'yaṃ vidūṣakaḥ, this Vidūṣaka here ).
