The followers of Hinduism were the first people to come up with the concept of Advaita, which puts forth the concept that all beings in the world are equal. Here are a few points from the perspective of the soul that proves it.
Advaita is coined from the two words “A” means “No” and “Dwaita” means “Duality”. This is the word advaita that means non-duality, which is the indication that everything is equal, be it the microscopic protozoa or the largest animal, the blue whale. Same fact applies that the star that is present in one of the galaxies of in the universe is equal to any of the pebble on earth or the creature that exists. Even though the earlier day Hinduism coined this to ensure that the persons should treat all living and existing beings around them with respect, it is true that the souls are equal and therefore all are equal.
Whether the energy is electrical, mechanical, kinetic, potential, heat, light, sound, magnetic or nuclear, the energy is the same, but can take different forms. Similarly, the souls are able to change dresses (physical beings) and still do not have any of the physical pleasures affect their true nature. With the finite number of souls to cater to all the creatures and things in the universe, every soul is created with similar qualities. In fact, in layman terms, the souls would have been photocopied to ensure that they are precisely the same.
Regardless of the number of elements that are present in the universe, the power of electrons and protons and neutrons are the same, whether it is Helium or Uranium. Similarly, whatever be the body or the physical being of various entities may be, the power of their soul is the same.
Soul is Soul After All:
A balloon is a balloon whether it is inflated with air and is huge or is deflated and is very thin and insignificant. Similarly, a soul is a soul after all and it is equal in all the organisms and things that are around us. It is the shape and form taken by it would determine its looks, but what is in the inside is the same for all, just as air is there inside the inflated as well as deflated balloons.
All Are Equal:
It is not good to change the person’s life after getting inspired by a two hour drama or movie. Similarly, it is not good to give huge emphasis on the roles that are played by the souls, which is enacted by their physical being. Therefore it is true that all the souls are equal and regardless of the physical appearance it is true that what is inside is the same. It is necessary to treat everyone and everything with equal respect to ensure harmony throughout the universe.
