Ayurveda and Subtle (Astral) Body Anatomy: The 72,000 Nadis of the Subtle Body

“The subtle body is a field of energy whose form is more fluid than the physical body. Energy (prana) flows through subtle channels called nadis. These channels permeate the entire subtle body.

The mind is the field and the nadis are the channels through which pranic energy flows.
