within human beings and nonhuman animals is exactly the same. The
consciousness within human beings is more pure than consciousness
within animals. The consciousness within human beings and animals
can also be termed as our soul atman within. It is the existence
of soul atman within our heart that is termed as consciousness within
In the absence
of consciousness... the body of human beings and animals is just
inert matter! A body becomes conscious only when a soul atman manifests
it. And why would a soul atman manifests a body? In the cosmic crux
of life... it is our soul atman within that manifests a body and
not vice versa. Every soul atman manifests a series of life forms
to work out its karma.
consciousness within human beings and animals is indestructible in nature. When
arrives the time for death of the body... this cosmic consciousness leaves the
body to manifest another life form. As long as consciousness remains within the
body... one lives! Devoid of consciousness... the body is just a mass of flesh!
deep into the domain of Cosmos... this cosmic consciousness initially manifests
the form of an amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation in the
cosmic life cycle! It subsequently evolves into multi-cell formation, then insect
life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of a human being. The cosmic
consciousness pervades every living body.
in the form of a human being only this cosmic consciousness liberates forever
from the cycle of birth and death. The moment a human being gains enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)... the cosmic consciousness regains
its pure pristine original form and leaves for the abode of God... the kingdom
of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism).
cosmic consciousness in human beings reaches its highest level of purity. In the
form of human beings if the percentage of impurity in the cosmic consciousness
is 10%... then in animal form it is above 30%. All dross within having removed...
the cosmic consciousness finally regains its cosmic lustre. It practically becomes
hundred percent pure before leaving for kingdom of God.
