|Query: Definition Soul...|
Try understanding the concept as a whole. A soul atman manifests a body
to purify itself. Every soul is pure spirit... free energy that can never be destroyed or created. Every soul
exists from times immemorial... right from the stage of the big bang when the Cosmos came into being! This
free energy... the spirit we know as soul is God Almighty in minuscule
If a grain of sand is an independent soul atman... the whole mound of
sand is God Almighty. Every soul atman desires purification ever since it came into existence. This is only
possible when it manifests a series of bodies on a life supporting planet like Mother Earth. Starting the
first manifestation as an amoeba (single cell formation), it subsequently evolves into multi-cell formation,
then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of a human being.
The soul within an insect, a plant, an animal and a human being is the
same. When the soul manifests the body of an insect... it consists of more impurities than when it manifests
the form of a plant.
After crossing through 7.3 million manifestations... the soul atman
finally manifests the form of a human being... the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle! It is
only as a human being the soul atman within gains final release from the cycle of birth and death.
The soul within every living being lives in the heart. As long as the
soul resides in the heart... the heart keeps beating. The moment the soul atman leaves the body... the body
decays and dies forever! The freed soul atman immediately manifests another body on Mother Earth provided
matching parents are available.
The cosmic life cycle goes on and on until human being gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
(moksha). It is only then our soul atman liberates forever and goes to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in
Hinduism)... a place of no return!
