The subtle body is a term used in various esoteric traditions to refer to a non-physical body that is believed to interpenetrate and interact with the physical body. The concept originated in early Indian thought, and has been influential in both Hinduism and Buddhism. In Hinduism, the subtle body is known as the sukshma sarira, while in Buddhism it is referred to as the kaya.

The subtle body is said to be composed of a variety of different “subtle” or “non-physical” components, which include the mind, the ego, the intellect, and the life force (prana). These subtler aspects of the self are believed to be the driving force behind all human action and experience.

While the concept of the subtle body is found in many different traditions, there is no single consensus on what it actually is. Some believe that it is simply a metaphor for the inner workings of the human psyche, while others believe that it is an actual non-physical entity that exists alongside the physical body.

There is still much research needed in order to fully understand the subtle body and its role in human experience. However, the concept provides a helpful framework for understanding the complex relationship between mind, body, and spirit. Let’s also not forget to mention research can only do so much 😉
