BG Chap 15 - The jīva drags the senses with it

Whenever the jīva accepts or leaves a body, he takes the senses with him in the subtle body, just as air takes fragrances from objects and goes elsewhere. Whenever the soul enters another body after giving up the previous one, and whenever he leaves the body he has attained, he takes the senses along with the subtle body. The jīva wanders from body to body, just as the wind, taking fragrance from the flower bud travels elsewhere. Just as the wind itself is free from the odor that it carries, the soul, although trapped in a gross body and subtle mind, remains aloof from all his apparent qualities, whether he exhibits the fragrant mode of goodness or the foul mode of ignorance.
