Goodre. According to the Vedantists the self, which they call the atman and we call the soul, is distinct from the body and its senses, distinct from the mind and its intelligence; it is not part of the Absolute, for the Absolute, being infinite, can have no parts but the Absolute itself.

It is uncreated; it has existed form eternity and when at least it has cast off the seven veils of ignorance will return to the infinitude from which it came. It is like a drop of water that has arisen from the sea, and in a shower has fallen into a puddle, then drifts into a brook, finds its way into a stream, after that into a river, passing through mountain gorges and wide plains, winding this way and that, obstructed by rocks and fallen trees, till at least it reaches the boundless seas from which it rose.

What is individuality but the expression of our egoism? Until the soul has shed the last trace of that it cannot become one with the Absolute.

What does it actually ify to you? You can't say what it is ; you can only say what it isn't. It's inexpressible. The Indians call it Brahman.

Quick reference

It's not a person, it's not a thing, it's not a cause. It has no qualities.

It transcends permanence and change; whole and part, finite and infinite. It is eternal because its completeness and perfection are unrelated to time.

It is truth and freedom. Men have always wanted a personal God to whom they can turn in their distress for comfort and encouragement. I myself think that the need to worship is no more than the survival of an old remembrance of cruel gods that had to be propitiated.

I believe that God is within me or nowhere. If that's so, whom or what am I to worship—myself?

Men are on different levels of spiritual development, and so the imagination of India has evolved the manifestations of the Absolute that are known as Brahma, Vishnu, Siva and by a hundred other names. The Absolute is in Isvara, the creator and ruler of the world, and it is in the humble fetish before which the peasant in his sun-baked field places the offering of a flower.
