Jnana Saraswati – Parabrahma Sutras

 

    

117. Atman, Jiva and the gross body are made of the same basic inert energy


कार्पासकवासस्त्रयवत्।११७।
kārpāsakavāsastrayavat|117|

The three bodies are like the three cotton clothes.

Explanation:

The Atman, the jiva and the gross body are made up of the same basic inert energy. They are like the innermost cotton banyan (undershirt), the inner cotton shirt and the outer cotton coat worn one on top of the other. These three clothes are made up of the same cotton. Similarly, the three bodies are made up of the same inert energy.

Note:

The word ‘tanu’ in Sanskrit means all the three bodies namely, causal, subtle and gross.
