The pancha praanas or the pancha koshas as they are called have been divided into five parts :
the food sheath, which is outermost, or the Annamaya Kosha
the vital-air sheath - lining it internally or the Praanamaya Kosha
the Mental sheath, within and still interior or the Manomaya Kosha
the intellectual sheath, or the Vijnanmaya Kosha and lastly
the bliss sheath, the subtlest of all or the Anandamaya Kosha.
