Atma or Atman means our soul (Jivatma) or the supreme soul (Paramatma)

According to Wikipedia

In Hindu philosophy, especially in the Vedanta school of Hinduism, Ātman is the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain liberation, a human being must acquire self-knowledge (atma jnana).
