Question: What Happens to the Atma in Heart Transplant?

Srila Gurudeva, in a response to a recently posted answer you stated that that atma resides within each person's physical heart. Respectfully, how can this be? Modern medicine can now replace one's heart with the heart of another (i.e., heart transplants) just as other vital organs can be replaced. If the atma resides in one's physical heart and his or her heart, due to disease or injury must be and is replaced, whose soul then resides in the physical heart? Did the one who had a heart transplant lose his or her soul? Do they now have the soul of the one whose heart now beats within his or her chest?

Please, explain this.


Answer: The Atma Changes Seats

The heart is the sitting place for the atma. If the heart transplant is successful, the atma simply changes seats and takes up the new heart as his new sitting place. If the persons dies, this means that the atma did not switch seats.
