25 Knowledge of the Soul The Soul is : indestructible BG 7.7 nainam chindanti sastrani nainam dahati pavakah na cainam kledayanty apo na sosayati marutah The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind

26 individual BG 2.12 na tv evaham jatu nasam na tvam neme janadhipah na caiva na bhavisyamah sarve vayam atah param 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 BG 15.7 Ma mai vamso jiva loke Jiva bhuta sanatana Manasastanidriyani prakrtistani karsati The living entities are my eternal fragmental portions. Due to conditioned life they struggle from senses and mind

27 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 vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro 'parani tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi 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

28 BG 2.13 dehino 'smin yatha dehe kaumaram yauvanam jara tatha dehantara-praptir dhiras 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

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

30 inconceivable BG 2.25 avyakto 'yam acintyo 'yam avikaryo 'yam ucyate tasmad evam viditvainam nanusocitum arhasi It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.

31 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

32 dwindlesDies staysProduces offsprings

33 Spirit soul does not undergo these tranformations BG 2.20 na jayate mriyate va kadacin nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah ajo nityah sasvato 'yam purano na hanyate hanyamane sarire 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

34 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

35 can never become GOD Am I GOD ? We are : not GODS GODs

36 Soul Humans (jivatmas) Infinitesimal (anu) Cognizant of ones body A loving servitor Supersoul GOD (paramatma) Infinite (vibhu) Cognizant of everyone and everything Eternally a loving master

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