Existence of Soul


I personally believe that every human being has a soul... reasons being many! The first reason being that we would not have been here had there not been a soul within us! We have to remember that it is the soul atman within our body that has manifested this body for a period of about 70 to 80 years... nothing more!

It is not within the capacity of the body to manifest a soul atman within. A human being as a body does not have the capacity to create something out of nothing... what to talk of creating even a pebble or a leaf!

On the contrary our soul atman within is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations. Having reached the level of human beings we have already crossed 7.3 million manifestations as insect life, plant life and animal life. In the human form alone we have 1.1 million types of manifestations. And why does this happen?

No soul atman can purify itself on its own. To remove the dross within every soul atman manifests body after another until it reaches the last leg of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation. It is then the human being gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha). Further on this liberated soul goes to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a journey of no return!

Secondly if we try to understand the cosmic system as a whole... things would become clear. Imagine the situation just before the evolution of the Cosmos. The dissolution of the previous Cosmos takes place and it is only after the complete dissolution of the earlier Cosmos has occurred... no new cosmos can form. Why?

It is like this... after the complete dissolution of the previous Cosmos occurs... it reduces to the size of half a thumb (this has been amply clarified in Bhagavad Gita... the most sacred document of Hinduism). This cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos... the size of half a thumb is what we know as God Almighty. Unable to contain itself for long (imagine the unimaginable power this small cluster of energy would contain) it explodes with a big bang.

Does this mean God Almighty at the beginning of a new cosmos explodes with a big bang... yes, the truth is so! And all souls in the cluster spread out all over the Cosmos with unimaginable speeds. It is on their cosmic journey these souls' atmans collect impurities. To come back to their original pure pristine form... all souls atmans are required to pass through a chain of 8.4 million manifestations.

The soul within every human being nay every living being is an exclusive part of the Cosmos and God Almighty. In absence of the souls' atmans, God Almighty and the Cosmos itself could not exist.
