आत्मा The soul

नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि नैनं दहति पावकः ।
न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः ।।२३।।

इस आत्माको शस्त्र काट नहीं सकते, आग जला नहीं सकती, जल गला नहीं सकता और वायु सूखा नहीं सकता ।

nainam chindanti shastrani nainam dahati pavakah ।
na chainam kledayanty app na sosayati marutah ।। 23।।

(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter -Two,  verse -23)

“The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman has the properties that Weapons cannot pierce it, fire cannot burn it, water cannot moisten it and wind cannot dry it (Chapter 2.23).

    1. Hi Vanita, this is a tough Philosophical question 🙂 and there are number of answers.
      About soul, Hinduism says –
      1. jiva-atma – the individual soul, known as the living entity.
      2. Param-atma – the Supersoul / God, known as the Supreme Lord

      Moksha is final liberation for an individual soul (jiva) from the cycle of birth and death.
      Different religions/ thoughts call it by different names- atama, soul, ruh ….
