Essence of the shlok ‘Nainam Chindanti Shastrani’
The Aatman which each one of us have is part of the supreme Purusha (the eternal force). The Shlok depicts that the soul or Aatman is formless, shapeless, limitless and doesn’t possess any physical attributes, but it still exists. The soul is birth-less, eternal, imperishable and timeless and is never destroyed when the body is destroyed.
