Every human being is a unique individual, microcosm of the universe and is composed of a body, mind and a soul.
According to the Indian Metaphysics, the whole universe can be divided into 2 main categories: Prakriti (Maya or Illusion) and Purush (Reality). All matter in the universe arises from the fundamental substrate called Prakriti. From this ethereal Prakriti the three primary gunas (qualities of energy) emerge creating the essential aspects of all nature—energy, matter, and consciousness. These three gunas are Tamas (Material Particles of Potential energy), Rajas (Waves of Kinetic Energy), and Sattva (Subjective Consciousness). Purush on the other hand is the only reality, it is the universe’s only unchangeable element: the Soul.
