Question: What happens to the soul of an animal after it leaves the body?

Sri Chinmoy: It has its own world. Each soul has its own capacity. The soul of a saint will not go to the same place as the soul of a thief. The saint will go to a much higher world. It all depends on the consciousness that the soul has revealed here on earth. So, animals will go to a world that will suit them. They will not go to a world where the souls are very highly developed.

Sri Chinmoy, The soul and the process of reincarnation.First published by Agni Press in 1977.
