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 can be understood to be the sum total of all of the nadis, as the mind can not function without the nadis and the nadis can not exist without the mind. The mind is the field and the nadis are the channels through which pranic energy flows. Classical yogic texts state that there are 72,000 nadis.

 “Given a choice, how many consumers do you think would go into a restaurant and order a side dish of pesticide with their meal? Obviously no one would, and yet that is what happens every day.
