Soul (Aathma), Life (Uyir) and Ghost (Aavi)
The human body is composed of the soul (Aathma) made up of divine atoms. It is powered by a life giving force (Uyir) and the desires of the soul make up the ghost (Aavi – like echoes).
A close analogy would be driving a car to a destination. The physical frame of the car corresponds to the body. Various parts of the car can be replaced but it still remains a car. Similarly, various parts of the human body can be replaced but it still remains a human body.
The gasoline powering the engine which moves the car can be compared to the life in the human body. It is this force that keeps the human body alive and functioning.
The driver of the vehicle can be compared to the Aathma. It can go from one car to another car but the driver remains the same I.e the Aathma moves from human body to human body but at its core, it is still the same Aathma.
The destination is like the Ghost. As long as the destination exists, there will be a Ghost (Aavi) accompanying the Aathma i.e. you are still driving the car thinking of and trying to reach the destination. Once the destination is reached, the life and the ghost disappear leaving behind only the Aathma which becomes God.
