In Sanskrit there are three distinct words: Atma, which means the soul, or a soul, an individual, a person; Mahatma, a high soul, an illuminated being, a spiritual personality; and Paramatma, the divine man, the self-realized person, the God-conscious soul. As it is said in the Gayan, 'If you only explore him, there is a lot in man', therefore man - and I mean every man - has a very wide scope of development in the spiritual spheres, a scope that an ordinary mind cannot imagine.
