KOSHAS: LAYERS OF BEING
A LOGO WITH A MEANING
Kosha Fit is based on the ideas described in the Sanskrit text, Taittiriya Upanishad. There are 5 layers of being known as koshas that are equally important in order to become our most aligned and empowered selves. Each of the 5 lines in our logo signify a kosha:
Annamaya (physical): “Human beings consist of a material body built from the food they eat. Those who care for this body are nourished by the universe itself.”
Pranamaya (energy): “Inside this is another body made of life energy. It fills the physical body and takes its shape. Those who treat this vital force as divine experience excellent health and longevity because this energy is the source of physical life."
Manomaya (mind): "Within the vital force is yet another body, this one made of thought energy. It fills the two denser bodies and has the same shape. Those who understand and control the mental body are no longer afflicted by fear.”
Vijñānamaya (discernment): “Deeper still lies another body comprised of intellect. It permeates the three denser bodies and assumes the same form. Those who establish their awareness here free themselves from unhealthy thoughts and actions, and develop the self-control necessary to achieve their goals."
