animals have a Soul
(philosophy meaning of life)
Do animals have a Soul?
Yes, every animal rather every living
being has a Soul. Before we delve further into the existence of soul we need to
understand the origin
of the cosmic system in its entirety.
cosmos starts with a big bang and all the Atmans
(Souls) in the Cosmos get scattered all over the cosmos. These Souls
do not have the power within to purify themselves and comeback to
their original state. They need a body to do that. Hence every atman
the soul within waits for a suitable body that it can manifest and
start on its cosmic journey.
And this cosmic
journey of 8.4 Million manifestations and 96.4 million earthly years
is required to be undergone by our soul the atman within before
it can come back to its pristine glory. The moment atman the soul
within gains its cosmic glory... we state the atman soul to have
gained immortality... it has now become free from the cycle of manifestations...
This is a stage of salvation
as we call it in Buddhism
and Christianity, known as moksha
cosmic journey that an atman soul undertakes starts with the body of an amoeba
(single cell formation)... Which is the first stage in the Life of our atman the
soul within. As Life proceeds by this single cell formation evolves into a multi-cell
formation, then insect Life, next as a plant, an animal and finally as a Human
By the time this atman the soul within takes the body of a Human Being for the
first time... our atman the soul within has already crossed the barrier of 7.3
Million manifestations... a long journey indeed! So as to say that all animals,
plants, insects and all single and multi-cell formations are our brethren of the
stage in present Life if taken as 18 years... we can only mentally
recollect what we were at the age of six years. As a Human Being if
we look back then this six years of age is the stage when we may have
manifested as a plant. Say 12 years can be stated as the age when
we took the form of an animal.
Looking at a child of six years... we do not ignore the child...
for he is one of our own. We have also passed that stage of Life.
But as a Human Being we fail to realize that all plants and animals
and even the insects are the phases of Life that we have already
lived and passed through. Difficult to comprehend but the truth
cannot be negated.
the average Life span of 70 to 80 years we pass different phases of Life. When
we are born we are a child... as we grow we become a toddler... then a teenager
and finally a grown-up boy or a girl and finally a grown-up Human Being. Similarly,
in the cosmic Life cycle one passes through different phases of Life... the initial
phase being that of an amoeba, then insect Life, next as a plant, then as an animal
and finally to evolve
as a Human
Now we also need to understand why our
atman the soul within cannot purify itself... had it been so the necessity
of creating a cosmos would not have ever arisen. Let me give an example that shall
make things absolutely clear-
we need to extract one KG of iron from a lump of hundred KG of iron ore then we
require passing the ore through the requisite mining machinery for processing.
And unless this processing occurs... this one KG of iron cannot separate out on
its own from the hundred KG lump of iron ore.
As one KG of iron needs the mining machinery for it to separate out from the ore...
atman the soul within requires a body for removing the dross within.
And for this every atman the soul within has to pass through a total phase of
8.4 Million manifestations and a cosmic Life span of 96.4 Million years.
The moment this one KG of
pure iron is devoid of the impurities within... 99 KG of impurities having separated
out... this one KG of iron has become pure... it has gained its original pristine
pure form... atman the soul within has now crossed the barrier of various manifestations
and comeback to its original state... it has gained immortality
