There are four different explanations of the word "Spirit."

  1. One meaning is essence. Spirit of camphor means the essence of camphor.
  2. The second meaning of spirit is what is understood by those who call the soul spirit when it has left the body on earth and has passed to the other side.
  3. The third meaning of spirit is that of the soul and mind working together. It is used in this sense when one says that a man seems to be in low spirits; this means that both his mind and soul are depressed, although one may not always define it in this way.
  4. And the fourth meaning of spirit is the soul of all souls, the source and goal of all things and all beings, from which all comes and to which all returns.
