Jnana Saraswati – Parabrahma Sutras

 

    

54. There is no difference between the body and soul in the basic sense


मयट् पञ्चमीकार्यरूपं श्रूयते स्थूलम्।५४।
mayaṭ pañcamīkāryarūpaṁ śrūyate sthūlam

It is stated in the Veda that the gross body is a modification of matter or food, which is described as its cause.

Explanation:

The Veda says that the soul is the modification of food (Annarasamayah). The Veda also says that the soul is the product of food (Annaat purushah). This clearly proves that the soul is just another form of food alone. Therefore, there is no difference between the body and the soul in the basic sense.
