Question: Where in the Human Body is the Atma Situated?

Srila Gurudeva, please help me understand how the atma is situated in the human body.


Answer: In the Physical Heart

Just as the driver sits in the driver's seat for driving the car, the atma, the eternal individual self, sits within the physical heart of the body from where he engages the body in the field of activities. And just as when a car becomes old and useless the driver trades it in according to his budget for a new one, when the material body becomes old and useless, according to his karmic budget the atma is awarded another material body in which to continue his sojourn within this material existence. In this way the body changes again and again, but the atma remains eternally the same.
