The nature of the soul is that it is always active.
The body is like a vehicle without a driver. As a driver is required to move the vehicle, similarly it is the soul which provides life to the dead body.
The soul gets a human body, an animal body or a plant body based on his previous karma (past deeds).
The moment the soul leaves the body the body becomes inactive & useless.
Since the soul is always active, so every living entities be it human beings or animals are forced to act helplessly according to their modes of nature.
When a soul gets a human body then there is a chance to realize the real purpose of the life.
The human body provides rarest of the rare opportunity to purify one’s existence.
In order to be purified it is important that the soul takes up to Krishna Consciousness.
This will provide an opportunity to go back home, Back to Godhead.
If one misses this golden opportunity then one again gets entangled in the never ending cycle of birth & death.
Once the soul reaches the eternal abode i.e. the spiritual world he never comes back to this material world.
