What is Soul?
The soul is a ray of perfect, divine energy that has incarnated in a body. Our soul is the core of our being, our true essence. This soul essence is unaffected by the ups and downs of daily life as it is in a perpetual state of love and unity. However, most are unaware of this divine essence within them and therefore do not experience the soul’s energy and presence in their life.
What is the difference between the soul and the body?
Put simply, the soul is eternal and the body is ephemeral (short-lived). As the sacred scriptures, such as the Bhagavad Gita, tell us, the soul is never born and never dies. It is the immortal aspect of our being that exists before and after every incarnation. The body is a temporary house for the soul during a lifetime. It is the vehicle through which the soul experiences this dimension of life.
