Shikshapatri Shlock 105


Jeeva is 'self' (it is called Jeevatma also.) He is the knower (in function), knowledge (in material), indivisible part of an atom (in size), abstract (in appearance) and non-resistant (in nature). He resides in the main controlling part of the body and pervades it through the force of his knowledge. He is described as formless; shapeless, changeless and eternal one, who can never be destroyed by any means at any time.

અને જે જીવ છે તે હૃદયને વિષે રહ્યો છે ને અણું સરખો સુક્ષ્‍મ છે, ને ચૈતન્‍યરુપ છે, ને જાણનારો છે અને પોતાની જ્ઞાનશકિતએ કરીને નખથી શિખા પર્યત સમગ્ર પોતાના દેહ પ્રત્‍યે વ્‍યાપીને રહ્યો છે, અને અછેદ, અભેદ, અજર, અમર ઇત્‍યાદીક છે લક્ષણ જેના એવો જીવ છે, એમ જાણવો.
