Yoga and Pancha Kosha

Yoga is a broad subject that involves various faculties of a human personality.

Taitteriya Upanishad says there are 5 levels of human personality

  • Annamaya Kosha or physical layer of our body that consists of cells, tissues, organs and systems.
  • Pranamaya Kosha or subtle life force layer that is responsible for all the pranic activities in the body such as breathing, digestion, nervous and circulatory system.
  • Manomaya Kosha or the emotional layer consisting of mind and its thoughts and feelings.
  • Vijnanamaya Kosha or the intellectual layer that discriminates between good and bad, that does logic and calculations.
  • Anandamaya Kosha is the bliss layer or a pure untouched consciousness which is the substratum of all the layers.

The goal of yoga is to come back to Anandamaya Kosha and realize that we are pure Ananda.
