This page will be regularly updated with new definitions as well as amendments to existing definitions :

  • Soul – The unique entity that feels ‘I exist’ and has limited independence to cope with world around.
  • World – Everything except the Soul.
  • God – The entity that manages interaction of Soul and World. This is different from Christian or Islamic God/Allah who put additional properties on the entity based on their faith.
  • Ishwar/ Eeshwar/ Paramatma – Vedic terms for God. Normally when I use these terms, I assume there is some understanding of derived properties of God.
  • Aatma – Vedic term for Soul. Note that this is different from Christian concept of soul.
