My definitions

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.
