FIVE SHEATH MEDITATION

This is an easiest scientific technique taught in Vedanta philosophy. According to doctrine of Vedanta 5 sheaths or bodies surround the soul of every person. The soul by its attachment and identification with them indulges in sense pleasures and worldly desires.

By meditation we have to separate the soul from its attachment and identification with these 5 sheaths or bodies. When the soul is separated from these 6 sheaths, then the soul gets back to its real form which is pure consciousness and becomes forever free from the cycle of repeated birth and death.
