About Course

There are several ways in which the soul in Vedic philosophy differs from the soul in other religions: (a) It establishes unity in diversity, and it is detected by that unity, (b) Its immortality is exactly the same as the immortality of matter, (c) It goes from body to body every moment, not merely at death, (d) Matter is treated as a state of the soul, rather than an object, (e) The soul has six facets of which will or choice is just one, (f) the other five aspects are emotion, intention, cognition, conation, and relation, and (g) the willing capacity constitute an eternal person but the other five aspects can be changed by a person as a result of their will.

In this course, we will discuss how these make the soul an essential part of all science, instead of separating it from science through a soul-matter divide. This will be useful to those who might erroneously equate the idea of the soul in the Vedic system to those in other religions.
