Query: Atman soul, inner self... How come tigers know there is atman soul inner self?|
Yes, it is true that although
some forms of animals realize the presence of a higher power within their inner self... but that is a very faint feeling. The absence of power of
discrimination and thinking in the animals... Leads them to a barbaric
In the life of an animal from beginning to the end... it is the survival of the fittest... a
drive to live and carry on with life. They are least bothered or concerned with the Atman soul and inner
self. For them the presence of atman soul and inner self or the absence of atman soul and inner self does not
carry any weightage.
Their sole purpose of life is to survive the rigors
of life that exist both in the animal world and the kingdom of human beings. From
morning till evening every animal is busy carrying out the routines for the day. Everything in the animal kingdom
goes on and on as if preprogrammed.
The animal kingdom unable to understand why the human beings kill for
pleasure is always on the run. Had the animals the power to discriminate... they would have found means to face the
challenge put up by the mankind.
In absence of the power of discrimination and logistics... those in the lower level of animal kind live a solitary
life. In the animal kingdom the freedom to mingle with the other species is very limited. Today one may be a friend
and the other moment the terminator.
Everything in the animal kingdom is governed by hunger. When hungry...
whatever little power of discrimination or logical thinking an animal may possess vanishes!
Animals do not practice compassion... it is just not within their means to practice compassion! Some forms of
animal beings do practice compassion at times but it is very limited. Compassion at the most can be practiced by
grass eating animals... the vegetarians in the flock! The meat eater judges all by the denominator of hunger
On the path of evolution as bid by God, it is only when one reaches the stage
of human beings that the significance of atman soul and inner self present within the body of all is recognized
truthfully. Before manifesting the form of a human being... it is purely a life of indulgence. This indulgence can
either be in eating, practicing sexuality or any other form of predatory excesses.
In the world of power of compassion and discrimination... animal
remains an animal. It just cannot behave like a human being. Whatever best our scientists have tried to train and
teach the animal form... we have had very limited results.
It is not within the power of a human being to change the course of
of the animal world. Every being on Mother Earth has got a purpose to live. Whether one recognizes this purpose in present life
is not of concern to God Almighty... what we need to recognize is whether we desire to live the present life by
In the animal kingdom such a choice rarely exists. For a human
being it is purely a matter of personal choice and willingness to go the extra mile.
Why think of the past and brood over the matter whether animal beings know about atman soul
and inner self... what matters is whether we as a human being can proceed on the path of pure spirituality within this life!
May God bless you!
