    Soul is pure awareness, which is a special work form of energy produced by the oxidation of food. Its generation requires the function of several biological systems also like lungs, stomach, nervous system etc. When any one of these fail, the energy is not produced and awareness in general disappears as in the deep sleep in which the nervous system takes rest. But the subtle body, which is a bundle of strong feelings (Samskaras), which are the waves of awareness, is not destroyed and it leaves the body for final enquiry. The enquiry is conducted by God based on these Samskaras only and not mere pure awareness, which is common in every soul. If you mean the subtle body for the soul, it is not destroyed. Even in the subtle body, pure awareness exists like gold in the jewels.

    The definition of the soul has been gone over many times, and I believe the Father and the Son have the true answer which does not confuse nor contradict as some of the earth have done in their own explanations. I believe in the Holy Spirit, one can have their best understanding of what the soul is, on this earth, but one can only have it in faith and belief to the Father and the Son, for their sacrifice in the body for our sins, and resurrection from the dead on the 3rd day, which all was for our salvation and redemption. Only then can one have wisdom from on High where the Father dwells. Blessings!:)
