The Inner Self, under the influence of Ego, tries to express itself through these three faculties in different proportions at different times, depending upon its karmic composition, in order to substantiate its existence. A prudent one understands through alert surveillance of one's inherent composition and tendencies, in order to keep a control/balance over these three modes of expression and eventually guides them towards “the core”, where lies - SELF, by breaking through the sheath of SELF-HOOD (Self's Hood = EGO).
We can call this SELF as the SOUL/SPIRIT.
