Jeeva/Maya/Supreme being and then Jeeva/Supreme Being minus Maya
then remains only Supreme Being with final merger getting minus
Jeeva and Maya.
Bhagavad Gita sings:
upadrastānumantā ca bhartā bhoktā maheśvarah
paramātmeti cāpyukto dehe’sminpurusah parah
“Although residing in the body, the Soul is transcendental
said to be the witness, the granter, the enjoyer,
the great God and Supreme Spirit.”
The Soul dwelling in the sphere of the heart
even closer than one’s hands, feet, and mind. Whether we do good or evil,
he is unconcerned. He just stands as a witness-an onlooker,
When the right course of worship is taken and the wayfarer rises a little higher,
approach of the witnessing Soul changes and he becomes the granter.
Now he begins to grant and confer intuitions. When the seeker is yet closer to the goal by
further spiritual discipline, the Soul begins to support and sustain.
Now he also provides the propitious yog.
Then he turns into the enjoyer.
when the worship is even more refined. He accepts whatever yagya or penance
performed, and at the stage after this acceptance
he is transformed into the great God.
He is now master of nature, but since he is master of nature it follows that nature yet abides in some part of him.
At even a higher stage than this,after the soul is endowed with the attributes
the ultimate,he comes to be known as the the Supreme Spirit.
Thus although dwelling in the body,
this soul or Purush is yet transcendental – quite beyond nature.
Witness at the beginning is transformed into the Supreme Spirit himself.
