Indian Psychology


 
 
 

In individual organisms, conscious energy exists in five sheaths (koshas) and operates through the entire body :

1. Annamayi Kosha The sheath of matter or the cellular body, created by prana out of anna, food.
2. Pranamaya Kosha The sheath of vital air or prana, which supports all mental, super-mental and psychic energy.
3. Manomayi Kosha The sheath of Mind, the mental body, a variety of feelings and emotions generated by the chemical soup prepared in the Annamayi Kosha.
4. Vijanamayi Kosha The sheath of knowledge beyond sensory perception, containing the Buddhi (intellect) and the Ahamkara (the Ego or I-consciousness).
5. Anandamayi Kosha The sheath of bliss, containing the chitta or pure being of individualized consciousness and non-dual cosmic consciousness.

The understanding of indian psychology is essential to the understanding of the purpose and methods of yoga.

Also read the abstracts on "Mind, Ego and Intellect" and on "The five Koshas" by Wil Geraets.
