Soul can never be comparables to God

God, called as Brahman so far and to be called as Parabrahman hereafter (to differentiate God from the Brahman is essential because the word Brahman is not confined to God only and is used in other items like Veda, due to its root meaning of greatness) is unimaginable. Therefore, the soul, which is knowable or imaginable, can never be compared with the unimaginable God either in qualitative sense or in quantitative sense. The water present in two cups of equal volume is equal in both qualitative and quantitative senses.

The water present in a cup and the water present in a pot are equal in qualitative sense but differ in quantitative sense.
