Where does the Supersoul go after the person dies?

Hare Krishna!

Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

Where does the Supersoul go after the person dies?

As I read, the soul hovers within the material body after the person dies, considering the person is attached  to the material world. 

Then what about the supersoul? Where doesa it move?

Paramatma is there till the time soul enters into spiritual realm. 

Paramatma is Kshirodakashayi Vishnu. When creation takes places first Maha Vishnu breathes and universes come out from the pores of His skin then He enters to each Universe in His Karanadakashayi Vishnu and fills up each universe with His perspiration into half. 

After Virat Rupa appears Karanadakashayi Vishnu enters into it in His Kshirodakashayi Vishnu Form. So that is Paramatma.

When Virat Rupa is destroyed and enters into the body of Maha Vishnu that time Paramatma also enters into the body of Maha Vishnu.

Your servant,  

after person dies or correctly after soul leaves the gross body his subtle body will remain so soul and Super soul will be within the subtle body. 

HAre Krsna,

Does jiva leaves subtle body when he goes to spiritual world.

Kindly explain.


Jiva leaves the subtle body when it goes to the spiritual world. As long as the jivatma travels in the material world, from one body to another, the subtle body goes with it.

Jiva Soul & SuperSoul
Both are Souls but only one is SuperSoul. Perhaps the Jiva Soul has a higherSelf & a conditioned self. But Krishna and Vishnu are ever present as SuperSouls. This is a vast difference. Don't you think? We jivas have the tenancy to fall from the standerds of pure goodness & SelfLessnes, Krishna & Vishnu do not.?

Hare KRsna Prabhuji,


THis is not what Srila Prabhupada said - supersoul is Vishnu, in Paramatma form. He is present with every soul in the material world as updrashta and anumanta (overseer and sanctioner). 

Aim is not to merge with Vishnu - that is sayujya mukti, that is merging in Brahmajyoti. THat is not sustainable - there will be a lot of peace in Brahmajyoti, no 3 modes of nature to bother the soul, but there will be no engagement, no relationship in Brahmajyoti. Eventually, the soul will get tired and desire. That desire will bring the soul back to the material world, because soul cannot go to spiritual world from Brahmajyoti. THerefore, this form of mukti is not permanent.

This is what is mentioned in our scriptures. 


Your servant,

Radha Rasamayi DD

Hare Krsna 

Merging of soul and supersoul is bogus mayavada philosophy which is utterly incorrect. Soul cannot merge into supersoul. Highest aim of life is to attain pure love for Krsna. 

Hare Krsna
