Who am i the science of the soul

Who am I ?

My real identity

is

NOT this temporary BODY,

but...

the eternal SOUL !!!


Who am i the science of the soul

Proof for the existence

of the Soul

  • Common sense

Difference between the dead body and the living person

  • Intuitive understanding

The real self “I” distinct from body, mind and intelligence


Who am i the science of the soul

  • Consciousness - the symptom of the

  • existence of the soul

  • Eg. Sun rays are sympton of sun

    Consciousness distinguishes a dead body from a living one

    Conciousness gives the proof of the soul

    • Near Death Experiences (NDEs)

    • Past-life memories

    • Astral body travel


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    • 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

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    • 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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    • infinitesimally small

    Kesa agra sata bhagasya

    Satadha kalpitasyaca

    The size of the soul is 1/10,000 the size of the tip of hair.


    Who am i the science of the soul

    • 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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    stays

    Produces offsprings

    dwindles

    Dies


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    Gross bodySubtle body

    EarthMind

    Water Intelligence

    Fire False ego

    Air

    Ether

    If one gives up his subtle body before the time of death, he gets liberated


    Who am i the science of the soul

    Is man just a powerful

    computer or a robot ?

    • Machines are designed and

    • programmed by humans.

    • Humans have an independent

    • consciousness.

    (comparison between a camera and

    a panel of judges watching a drama)


    Who am i the science of the soul

    Am I GOD ?

    We are :

    • not GODS

    • GOD’s

    • can never become GOD


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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


    Who am i the science of the soul

    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.
