 The drop of water in the ocean

The soul is compared to a drop of water and liberation to its merging into the vast ocean which represents the Supreme Soul (God).

According to the advaita schools, the soul and God are equal in every respect, and liberation entails realisation of one’s Godhood. Thus, one’s mistaken sense of individuality is dissolved, and one merges into the all-pervading Supreme.
