In many spiritual traditions, especially within Hinduism and certain Buddhist practices, self-realization is equated with the knowledge of the "Atman" or the soul, seeing it as non-different from the universal consciousness or "Brahman." It is the awakening to the realization that our deeper self is not confined to the physical body or the fleeting mind but is a part of a vast, unchanging, infinite consciousness.
