Soul and Heart

Query: Soul and Heart...

Vijay Kumar:
Our soul atman resides in our heart... the prime reason why the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman that seems to come from within our heart always guides us on the right path. Traveling the path of absolute truthfulness one can distinctly hear the voice of our soul atman... never otherwise!

The soul atman of every living being resides in the heart. As long as the heart beats... the body survives. The moment our soul atman leaves the heart... the body decays and dies! It is our soul atman that has manifested the body to work out its karma... remove the impurities... the dross within. Our soul atman is the absolute master and controller of the body.

Governed by the voice of our soul atman... Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime! Right from the first manifestation as an amoeba (single cell formation) and to the last as human beings... the cosmic crux of life is our soul atman gaining liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever.

No sooner the soul atman regains its original pure pristine form... it gains entry into the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism). Gaining enlightenment and finally salvation (moksha) is the ultimate goal of every soul atman. Whether we do it now or many manifestations henceforth is the sole prerogative of every human being.

Human form is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle! Only as humans can the soul atman within regain its original pure pristine form... liberate from the cycle of birth and death forever... never otherwise! Never from heaven (Swarga in Hinduism) or hell (Naraka in Hinduism) can the soul atman gain direct entry into the kingdom of God.

For the soul atman to get liberated... it needs a cosmic sojourn of 96.4 million earthly years... a total of 8.4 million manifestations on the whole! The initial 7.3 million manifestations are spent in the insect, plant and animal form. In the human form alone we have 1.1 million manifestations for human beings to reach the stage of enlightenment and salvation.

The moment one reaches the 8.4 millionth manifestation... all is over for the soul atman within! Journey in the human form is the most pleasant experience for the soul atman within. Guided by the voice of our soul atman and the power of discrimination bestowed on mankind by God Almighty... human beings finally cross the ocean of Samsara (worldly life)!
