The Three Bodies
Every living being comprises three aspects – Sthula, Sukshma and Karana (gross, subtle and causal). Humans have a physical body, made up of the five elements. Surrounding the physical body is the subtle body – sometimes called the astral body. Deep within the physical and subtle bodies exists the causal body, the consciousness within, the source of the “I” that everyone utters; it is in association with the Knower and the Knowing Principle. These three bodies may be examined from the birth chart.
