Pranamaya Kosha or Life body/Energy- Its basic personality is Life Force, it flows in energy channels or nadis and the chakras or energy centers in the body. Disturbance in this layer leads to undue haste/speed. Remedy is to slow down breathe slowly and deeply and practice pranayama so that life force can flow to all the parts and cells. The signs of healthy development of Pranamaya Kosha are enthusiasm, ability to use one’s voice effectively, suppleness of body, forcefulness in personality, perserverance, leadership, discipline, honesty and nobility
Manomaya Kosha or Mind/Mental- Its basic personality is mental activity. Disturbance in this layer leads to agitation. Remedy is to calm down and practice mediation. For the development of Manomaya Kosha study of good literature including poems,novels, essays and articles is useful
Vijnannmaya Kosha or knowledge body/Wisdom- Its basic personality is Intellect and emotions. Whereas at the third level, the mind functions as a stimulus/response mechanism, in the fourth sheath, one is able to understand and discern. Further, personal understanding permits us to look beyond personal roles and perceive the larger picture. This is the level of cognition, conditioning or de-conditioning of one’s core beliefs, the most deeply rooted of which is the ‘I’ concept. In Sanskrit this is referred to as the ‘aham’, from which springs the word ‘ahamkara’. Little wonder then that this is the seat of the ego. Disturbance in this layer leads to confusion and imbalance. Remedy is to be balanced and study scriptures and practice bhakti/devotion to almighty
Activities which stimulate this layer include debates, problem-solving, study-techniques, small research projects, evaluation and appreciation of books, interviewing the eminent persons, all the activities make you go beyong your tiny self and give opportunity to idenfity with your fellow beings-your community members, your country and the whole world.
Anandmaya Kosha or God body/Bliss- Its basic personality is bliss. Disturbance in this layer leads to disharmony in life. Remedy is to be in harmony with nature and with your fellow beings. This is the innermost of the five sheaths consisting of vasanas or desires. They exist in subconscious in which we exist during our deep-sleep-state of consciousness. It is considered blissful, because, whatever be the condition in which we are in our waking and dream states, once we reach, all of us experience relatively the same undisturbed peace and bliss due to the cessation of agitations experienced by us in the other two states of consciousness that are wakefulness and dream. The Bliss Sheath controls the intellectual Sheath, since the intellect functions under the control and guidance of one’s vasanas.
