  18. Knowledge of the Soul The Soul is : • indestructible BG 7.7 The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind nainam chindanti sastraninainam dahati pavakahna cainam kledayanty apona sosayati marutah

  19. individual BG 2.12 Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be na tv evaham jatu nasamna tvam neme janadhipahna caiva na bhavisyamahsarve vayam atah param BG 15.7 The living entities are my eternal fragmental portions. Due to conditioned life they struggle from senses and mind Ma mai vamso jiva loke Jiva bhuta sanatana Manasastanidriyani prakrtistani karsati

  20. sat-cid-ananda Body is asat, acit, nirananda • situated in the region of the heart Soul gives the energy to the heart to flutter • changes bodies BG 2.22 As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones vasamsi jirnani yatha vihayanavani grhnati naro 'paranitatha sarirani vihaya jirnanyanyani samyati navani dehi

  21. BG 2.13 dehino 'smin yatha dehekaumaram yauvanam jaratatha dehantara-praptirdhiras tatra na muhyati As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change

  22. infinitesimally small Kesa agra sata bhagasya Satadha kalpitasyaca The size of the soul is 1/10,000 the size of the tip of hair.

  23. inconceivable BG 2.25 It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body. avyakto 'yam acintyo 'yamavikaryo 'yam ucyatetasmad evam viditvainamnanusocitum arhasi

  24. Matter is formless, The Soul gives form to matter. Eg Shirt Matter is dead, spirit gives life to matter Eg. Car Matter undergoes tranformations Takes Birth Grows

  25. stays Produces offsprings dwindles Dies

  26. Spirit soul does not undergo these tranformations BG 2.20 For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain na jayate mriyate va kadacinnayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyahajo nityah sasvato 'yam puranona hanyate hanyamane sarire

  27. Gross body Subtle body Earth Mind Water Intelligence Fire False ego Air Ether If one gives up his subtle body before the time of death, he gets liberated

  28. Am I GOD ? We are : • not GODS • GOD’s • can never become GOD

  29. Soul Supersoul • Humans (jivatmas) GOD (paramatma) • Infinitesimal (anu) Infinite (vibhu) Cognizant of everyone and everything • Cognizant of • one’s body • A loving • servitor Eternally a loving master

  30. Simply saying is not enough, one should act accordingly Eg of Birds and the sage By chanting mantra, Person becomes “Brahmabhuta prasannatma” We are one in quality with GOD, but different in quantity. Our salvation depends on the acceptance of this reality.
