The Self And The Koshas

CSE’s Youth Spiritual Education Online Program

The Self is who we are at the very core of our being. It is our divine essence and pervades all aspects of our life. It is eternal and never changes. It is the source of all our inner qualities including: wisdom, courage, strength, power, kindness, love, creativity, compassion, and flexibility.

The Koshas, or Coverings, give material form to the Self. They include our body, energy, mind, inner wisdom, and joy. It is through these coverings that the Self expresses into our material world.

In this unit, we share ways to care for each of the coverings so we may fully experience and express our divine Self and all of its qualities.
