The soul is a real being. It is an eternal entity. Desire, aversion, volition, pleasure, pain, intelligence and cognition, are its qualities or marks. The object of the notion of ' I ' is the soul. No cognition or recollection is possible without a soul. The eye cannot see objects and the ear cannot hear sounds without a soul. There should be an agent to use the instruments (senses). That agent is the Soul. After an object is seen, even if the eyes are both destroyed the knowledge that I have seen remains. This knowledge is not a quality of either the objects or the senses. The mind is not the soul. It is only, an instrument of the soul, by means of which it thinks. The self is the subject. The soul exists even when the body parishes, the senses are cut off and the mind is controlled. There are infinite numbers of Souls.
