(Annamaya-Kośa) A Sanskrit word meaning “food-made-sheath,” i.e., biological or physical body. It is one of five vehicles of consciousness mentioned in the Taittiriya Upanishad (3.1) and is equivalent to the sthula-sarira or “gross body” mentioned in the four-fold system of the Vedanta philosophy.
