    jada prakriti and chetan prakriti , two types are there .
    we can put the mass beyond earth , oxygen beyond earth and so on .
    similarly the live energy must be balanced and moving around the universe ...aum kham brahman ... i suppose and hence the soul existing .
    to my understanding but i am not very sure .

    I used to have a book called 'Stotra Mala' (Garland of hymns) in Tamil by LIFCO Publishers. I remember having read in the prologue of that book, that according to Madhvacharya's Dwaitha, which is a sect of Vaishnavism, souls are classified into 3 categories, I don't recall all names, but the eternally bonded is called 'nithya samsari' (the eternally bonded) or also known as 'baddha jeevatmas' and are said to be trapped in wordly existence forever.

    Certainly, I do find that many souls in this material world, have such nature of sins, they are not worthy of being considered for moksha ever!

    I tried googling on nithya samsaris and baddha jeevatmas, but only found questions on them, especially in stackexchange Hinduism site. Obviously not too many people know about the concept well!

    When you say mukthi is for all, which school of thought are you referring to?
