Are The Living Entity, The Self and The Soul Different From Each Other?

Postby bhaktarichard » Friday 20 January 2017, 6:28

Dear Guru Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to You and Srila Prabhupada.

Verses 57-61 of the 25th chapter of the 4th canto of SB King Puranjana is described as the living entity and his wife, the queen, is described as intelligence. In the purport of the verse they mention the living entinty, the self and the soul...

Purport:
The mind is the place where the self is situated, and the mind is conducted by the intelligence. The living entity, situated within the heart, follows the intelligence. The intelligence is herein depicted as the Queen, and the soul, under mental control, follows the material intelligence just as the King follows his wife...

So my question is there a difference between the living entity, the soul and the self? Can you please explain the differences between them? Thank you.



Your servant

Dear Bhakta Richard,
Receive my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

So my question is there a difference between the living entity, the soul and the self? Can you please explain the differences between them?

There is no difference.
We are the soul, we are living entities and our self is that spiritual being.
So these names are all abjectives of the same entity.

Your well-wisher
