Souls do not
live in the body. It is our soul (termed atman in Hinduism) that
has manifested the body to work out its karma... remove the dross

the residual balance of karma at any given moment of time we react
to the situation. If the situation demands our getting angry...
it is possible the lion within us roars.
The human form
is manifested between the karma index of 7.300001 and 8.400000.
The human form is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life
cycle. Only as human beings our soul atman finally liberates itself
from the cycle of birth and death forever... never otherwise!
The moment human
beings reached the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
salvation (moksha) all is over for the soul atman within. The liberated
soul atman having regained its original lost pure pristine primordial
form enters the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha
