WHAT IS ANANDAMAYA KOSHA?



The causal body is referred to as the Ananda(pleasure)-Maya kosha. 

The bliss sheath (anandamaya kosha) is the subtlest and deepest of the three bodies that represents the soul's blissfulness. Both the subtle and gross bodies are caused by it. 


  • The mind recedes from the physical waking state and the astral dream state to the causal body in dreamless sleep. 
  • In deep dreamless sleep, it enters a delicate condition in which the mind's and sense organs' functioning are paused. 
  • There is no ego and no thinking in this beautiful, resting condition. 


THE SOUL


  • The soul, also known as the indwelling self or spirit, is present in all three bodies (physical, astral, and causal) and observes their activity. 
  • The soul is an ever-shining consciousness that is flawless and complete, with no beginning or end.
