I is for Immortal
Immortal means Eternal.
All souls are immortal. But, while karmas*
are still attached to the souls, the souls occupy into various types of
bodies, like the humans, the animals, the birds, the plants, etc. The body and
the soul are different things. When all the attached karmas are destroyed the
soul is liberated from the body permanently and reaches to the top of
universe, called Siddh Shila and stays there forever. These souls then are
called Siddhas. That is the state of being our Immortal soul from the bondage
of the body.
