Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 25

avyakto 'yam acintyo 'yam
avikaryo'yam ucyate
tasmad evam viditvainam
nanusocitum arhasi

avyaktah--invisible; ayam--this soul; acintyah--inconceivable; ayam--this soul; avikaryah--unchangeable; ayam--this soul; ucyate--is said; tasmat--therefore; evam--like this; viditva--knowing it well; enam--this soul; na--do not; anusocitum--to lament; arhasi--you deserve.


It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.


Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport; As far as the soul's existence is concerned, no one can establish his existence experimentally beyond the proof of sruti, or Vedic wisdom. We have to accept this truth, because there is no other source of understanding the existence of the soul, although it is a fact by perception
