Atman and Brahman lie at the essence of Hinduism.
Atman is the universal life-principle, the animator of all organisms, and the world-soul. Brahman is the unchanging, infinite, immanent, and transcendent reality which is the Divine Ground of all matter,

Atman and Brahman

The earth soul runs as a river
warped and wild, curving
space and time.

Its spirit undefined
beyond description or approach
carries all, it flows
through everything
in reach for the sea
that sustains the universe
without thought and language,
finite within the infinite,
infinite within the finite,

Birth and death float
at the bank of the karma
only freed by lit beacons.
