Like the Brahman, the Atma also has several similar qualities like opminpresence, omnipotence, divinity etc. Then what is the difference between Brahman and individual Atma?
Brahmam (Paramatma) and the individual soul (Jivatma) differ as follows:oug 1.Brahmam is Vibhu (All pervading) and Jiva is Anu (Atomic). 2.Brahmam is Unique and there is no second like Him- neither above nor Equal to Him. Jiva are countless but are identical in Svaroopa (Defining characteristics) 3.Brahmam is naturally self sustaining and infinite in every aspect of Gyana (Knowledge), Bala (Strength), Aishwarya (Wealth), Veerya (Potency), Shakthi (Power) and Tejas (Opulence) with which He is the cause for Creation, sustenance and annihilation of the Universe. Jiva is enabled by Brahmam to have all the same attributes but is not empowered in the activities of creation,sustainance and annihilation. 4. Brahmam can liberate the bonded Jiva from the Karmic cycle which Jiva is incapable of.
