Spirituality defined

Standard

sun in handsQuestion: Please define what is it “spiritual” or “conscious” person, what does it mean to be one.

Answer: The defining quality of spiritual consciousness is that through recognition and acceptance of the existence of limitations of perception–immediately recognizable by observing the relationship between one’s current comfort zone and current struggles–one gains increasing awareness of, and hence identification with, the spirit or causal body (anandamaya kosha)–distinguished from the physical body (anamaya kosha), the life force (pranamaya kosha), the mind (manomaya kosha), and the faculties of cognition (vijnanamaya kosha).

Identification of the ego with anandamaya kosha results in absorption in ananda, or supreme bliss, which is equivalent with enlightenment, illumination, and the realization of one’s true self.  ॐ
