The 3 Bodies & 5 Sheaths #275
The teaching that the soul is not the body is basic to Indian Philosophy. The teaching of the five sheaths informs the mind as to the reality of this fact, pointing out that there are four other forms and levels of a living being’s makeup. Further, these five sheaths can be interpreted in terms of the three bodies, namely gross (stula), subtle (sukshma) , and causal (karana). This wisdom chart shows several cross references to these valuable perspectives, including, as it does, a helpful teaching on the three types of ego as well.
