1.Consciousness is not a part, product or property of the body.
2.Consciousness is an independent principle which pervades and enlivens the body.
3.Consciousness is not limited by the boundaries of the body.
4.Consciousness survives even after the fall of the body.
5.The surviving pure consciousness is not accessible as it needs a medium to manifest.

1.I ( as Atma ) am the Eternal and All-pervading consciousness.
2.I am the only source of permanent peace, security and happiness.
3.By my mere presence, I give life to the material body and through the body, I experience the material universe.
4.I am not affected by anything that takes place in the material world and in the material body, including the material mind.
5.By forgetting my nature, I convert life into a struggle and by remembering my nature, I convert life into a sport or entertainment.
