The Ten Bodies

According to the yogi philosophy Kundalini Yoga is based on, the  human body is made up of ten bodies: the physical body, three mental bodies, and six energy bodies. The physical body is the one we can easily relate to as we can see it, touch it, and feel it. However all the other bodies are equally real, but we have not learned to be aware of it.

Each body has its qualities and characteristics and familiarizing ourselves with them allows us to see where we are unbalanced because ultimately is only when all the bodies are balanced that we are able to achieve a pure state of consciousness:

Yogi Bhajan says, “when the infinite in you and the human in you are in parallel unison then you are an 11. You have no duality, you have divine vision and the truth flows from you. You don’t have to find anything outside of you. The jewels are all in you – you are rich inside, you have satisfaction and contentment.”
