According to Indian Philosophy, human being constitutes three vital bodies, 5 Koshas (sheaths), and 3 States.
Human beings have three bodies where its Koshas reside.
- Gross Body (Sthula Sharira)
- Subtle Body or Astral Body (Linga Sharira)
- Causal body (Karana Sharira)
The soul is different from these three bodies.
Anandmaya Kosh resides in Causal body (Karana Sharira). Causal body needs bliss or peace which it gets from Anandmaya Kosh. Karana Sharira or Causal body is the map template which is the sole cause for the gross and subtle bodies in the future birth of the soul that is not liberated or detached from the causal body.
