Vijnanamaya kosha is the part of us that lies beneath the thinking mind, the part that is aware of ourselves feeling our body. It includes the ego, the substrate of personality and conditioning that generates thoughts, emotions, and intentions. As the core of our individual identity, the ego colors the lens through which we perceive sensation and experience. Then it weighs and assigns value to that experience and generates an impulse to take action that reflects our conditioning, beliefs, and nature. It shapes who we are and how we express ourselves in the world.
