There is a famous quote which is circulating online that according to Hinduism, soul transmigrates through 8.4 million or 84 lakh bodies before reaching human form. Now, if we remove 4 lakh human species from the quote, only 80 lakh species are available. But science says 87 million species are discovered, and still 80% of the world species are not discovered. So, as only places in India are mentioned in Hindu epics, only Indian species have souls or the other way around?

  • In one word answer is Yes! All species have souls.
