Since, we have infinite time and a finite number of souls,

is it possible that eventually every jiva-atma will regain its krishna conciousness and go back home, thus leaving the material world empty?

Please clarify.

Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisance’s. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Thanks for your question. In respect to the nature of the spiritual world it is inconceivable from our perspective. It is not possible to understand the workings of the spiritual world to a minute detail from our conditioned perspective. We know that God as the Supersoul is accompany every living entity and ultimately He has a plan for the salvation of every individual jiva. It is stated that Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu liberated every soul in the universe when he was performing his pastimes. However the liberated souls were quickly replaced by materially conditioned souls who took birth. We know that the spiritual world is vast and inconceivable from our perspective. The number of souls that take their birth here is a minute quantity of the jivas that exist altogether. Ultimately this question is one which is inconceivable due to the nature of the spiritual world. If you have any feedback I would love to hear. Thanks. Your servant, Bhakta David.
