The physical body is the grossest vehicle the human being possesses. The Etheric Double, though made up of subtle matter, is still physical. Man also possesses an organized vehicle, the Astral Body, which enables him to experience desires, passions and emotions. Especially, how the various human emotions show up in the Astral vehicle is illustrated.
The Mental Body, with which man thinks is made up of the matter of the four Rûpa sub-levels of the Mental Plane, and the Causal Body, of the three Arûpa sub-levels. Causal body is the seat of the re-incarnating Ego or Soul. The developments that take place, in the case of spiritually advanced Beings, are shown.
