Before you try to understand the meaning or the spiritual meaning of the term Dark Soul, you must know where this term got famous from. Read further to understand the concept.

Dark Soul

The term ‘Dark Soul’ has got its fame from a Video Game series called ‘Dark Souls’ Series.
Dark Souls[a] is a series of action role-playing games created by Hidetaka Miyazaki of FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The series began with the release of Dark Souls (2011) and has seen two sequels, Dark Souls II (2014) and Dark Souls III (2016).

Dark Soul Meaning | Spiritual Meaning

While you might have heard a term called Dark Night of the Soul’ ( i will write on it soon) which is an experience that a person gets during his Spiritual Journey. But the term ‘Dark Soul’ does NOT have any spiritual meaning at all. And I will explain you the Why and the HOW of it soon.

To understand the MEANINGLESSNESS of the term ‘Dark Soul’, we must first understand what a ‘Soul‘ is. If you haven’t read my write-up on What is a Soul, first go and read that. Then come back to this point and start reading from here.


Now I am assuming that you are coming back here after reading the blog on the SOUL and so I am explaining you further up.

You must have understood the following by now –

1. the SOUL or the AATMA of a human being does not have any color or shape. It cannot be seen with the two naked eyes.
2. The SOUL can only be seen by the One whose 3rd Eye is open.
3. The SOUL is also called the Inner Essence. My friend, Dr.Neal always calls it as Inner Essence in all of his work and our podcast episodes.

But also take care that somebody might even fool you as well by telling you that his third eye is open. And you don’t want to be fooled by anyone just because he is wearing orange robes. Therefore, you must learn how to recognize a Perfect Spiritual Master first. (You can read more about it in some of my other blogs if you wish to)

Now because the SOUL does not have any color or shape, it does not really make sense if the SOUL is DARK or LIGHT.
In the Spiritual World, DARK SOUL means NOTHING therefore.

DARK SOUL term therefore only makes sense in the game and it only fits the purpose of the Video Game.

According to the ‘Video Game’Dark Souls’ Series, The Dark Soul is the soul of the Furtive Pygmy, and is one of the Souls of Lords in Dark Souls. It is the namesake of the Dark Souls series. Dark Souls was released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 on September 22, 2011, in North America for Xbox 360. You can read more about the Gameplay, you can read it here.

I hope I was able to answer your question to the point and in brief.
