Many people feel that we are ‘Brahm’ and due to some reason we are suffering from the clutches of ‘Maya’, thus we are known as soul. This is totally incorrect.

This soul always remain as soul, it can never become super-soul.

Many people feel that we are ‘Brahm’ and due to some reason we are suffering from the clutches of ‘Maya’, thus we are known as soul. This is totally incorrect.

Reason being that ‘Brahm’ is title for Omnipotent or Omnipresent. One who is omnipotent or omnipresent can never suffer at the hands of Maya or material energy. Neither this material energy nor Maya is so potent that it is able to engulf the Omnipotent. And how is it possible that One who is omnipotent suffers at the hand of His own potency. If He suffers then He cannot be termed as Omnipotent. Under such circumstances the meaning of the word omnipotent will be null. Then how could we be able to address such entity as ‘Brahm’.

Let us assume that upon meditating this soul will become omnipotent or Brahm. Still it seems unlikely that this is possible. If the soul was Brahm initially and later on his potency took over him then all sorts of meditation to become ‘Brahm’ would be useless. We meditate to get rid of threefold miseries of this world and since ‘Maya’ can take over us even when we become ‘Brahm’ and turn us to become a soul then all sort of meditation processes are useless.

Some people claim that when soul unifies with the super-soul, soul becomes super-soul. This is also incorrect. As soul is immortal and so is super-soul. If soul looses its own identity by entering in super-soul then the scriptures would be rendered incorrect which claims that soul is immortal or soul never dies. For e.g. in chemistry water constitutes of H2O. Even when water enters ocean, its formula remains intact. It does not break. Even if we try to break water, and make it into two, water will not remain as water, it will break into oxygen and hydrogen.

If the soul was to become God eventually then the devotees like Sree Hanuman, Sree Brahma, Sree Uddhava, Sree Shabri, Sree Ras khan, Sree Bhakti Vinode Thakura, Sree Narottam Dasa won’t be praying to Lord in order to get a chance to serve Him.

They pray,’O Lord, please have mercy upon us. Kindly grant us a boon that we shall never forget You and we shall never be devoid of Your Love’. Had the soul not having their separate identity then all the prayers by such pure devotees of Lord won’t carry any meaning.
