An event every week that begins at 6:00 PM on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until August 28, 2021
Understanding the Pancha Koshas (The Five Coverings on the Self)
Pancha Kosha is a Sanskrit term made up of two words – Pancha and Kosha. Pancha means ‘’five’’, and Kosha means ‘’sheath’’ or ‘’layer’’.
The concept of Pancha kosha originated from Taittiriya Upanishad. The classical Upanishads were concerned with addressing the nature of the self and one’s relationship to the universe, and Pancha kosha is thought to be one of the earliest conceptualizations of the human self.
The Pancha kosha philosophy helps one to understand “Who am I”?. With this knowledge, one can transcend the grosser layers of one’s being, tuning into the subtle aspects, and ultimately gaining knowledge of the true self. As one works through the five sheaths, eventually one stops identifying oneself with these layers, be the body, mind, or intellect, and one begins to recognize that the true and real self is beyond these five layers.
Thus, understanding the coverings/layers of one’s being is key to obtaining peace and joy in life. Now, let’s learn more about the ‘Pancha Koshas’ with Rabindra Sahu.
