From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

Nityasansāri literally means ‘the eternally transmigrating jīva’.

The Dvaita Vedānta of Madhva[1] categorizes the jīvas or individual souls into three groups:

  1. Muktiyogyas - those who are fit for liberation
  2. Nitya-saṅsārins - the eternally transmigrating ones
  3. The tamoyogyas - the damned ones

The nityasaṅsāris are sensuous beings who delight only in worldly values and feel no need for ethical or spiritual life. Hence they are forced to transmigrate eternally.[2]


  1. He lived in A. D. 1238-1317.
  2. Nitya means eternally.
