In the case of the Schrodinger equation solution for the hydrogen atom, each orbital is one eigenvector of the solution.

Remember from time-independent Schrodinger equation that the final solution is just the weighted sum of the eigenvector decomposition of the initial state, analogously to solving partial differential equations with the Fourier series.
