The symptom of soul present in the body is perceived as individual consciousness, which is spread all over the body. Everyone is conscious of the pains and pleasures of the body in part or as a whole. This spreading of consciousness is limited within one’s own body. The pains and pleasures of one body are unknown to another. Therefore, each and every body is the embodiment of an individual soul.

The Svetasvatara Upanisad confirms the description of the soul as one ten-thousandth part of the upper portion of the hair point in size, which means when the upper point of the hair is divided into one hundred parts and again each of such parts is further divided into one hundred parts, each such part is the measurement of the dimension of the spirit soul.

There are innumerable particles of spiritual atoms which are measured as one ten-thousandth of the upper portion of the hair. Therefore, the individual particle of spirit soul is a spiritual atom smaller than the material atoms and such atoms are innumerable. This very small spiritual spark is the basic principle of the material body as the influence of the active principle of some medicine spreads through out the body. This current of the spirit soul is felt all over the body as consciousness and that is the proof of the presence of the soul.

Any laymen can understand that the material body minus consciousness is a dead body and this consciousness cannot be revived in the body by any means of material administration. Therefore consciousness is not due to any amount of material combination, but due to the spirit soul.

In the Mundaka Upanisad the measurement of the atomic spirit soul is further explained as atomic in size and can be perceived by perfect intelligence. This atomic soul is floating in the five kinds of air (prana, apana, vyana, samana and udana), is situated within the heart, and spreads its influence all over the body of the embodied living entities. When the soul is purified from the contamination of the five kinds of material air, its spiritual influence is exhibited.

The Hatha-yoga system is meant for controlling the five kinds of air encircling the pure soul by different kinds of sitting postures not for any material profit, but for liberation of the minute soul from the entanglement of the material atmosphere.

So the constitution of the atomic soul is admitted in all vedic literatures and it is actually felt in the practical experience of any sane man. Only the insane man can think of the atomic soul as all pervading visnu-tattva.

The individual atomic soul is there in the heart along with the supersoul, and thus all the energies of the bodily movements are emanating from this part of the body. The corpuscles which carry the oxygen from the lungs gather energy from the soul. When the soul passes away from this position, the activity of the blood generating fusion ceases. Medical science accepts the importance of the red corpuscles, but it cannot ascertain that the source of the energy is the soul.

Medical science however does admit that the heart is the seat of all energies of the body.

So whether one follows vedic knowledge or modern science, one cannot deny the existence of the spirit soul in the body and science of the spirit soul is explicitly described in the Bhagavad-Gita by the supreme personality of godhead himself.
