The subtle body is our mind, intellect, feelings, emotions, Ego, and Consciousness, or Self.

Knowledge of the Self is already present within us, but because of our entanglement in the material world due, it is forgotten. When the links that bind our soul to materialism are transcended through the systematic practice of yoga, the true nature of the Self is realized and united with that from whom we broke away to seek experience.

In Yoga 103, we start using the intellect to explore consciousness through correct knowledge (pramana). Then, we use this knowledge to identify the influences in our lives which gives rise to incorrect knowledge of mind until the ignorance that gives birth to mind is transcending completely.

The Practice

Once you have finished the 'Lab' tutorial, start recording your thoughts, emotions, and intentions on a daily basis for at least eight weeks to get an idea of what dominates your mind, how your beliefs, opinions, and prejudices were formed, and what your strength and weaknesses are. Once you have this knowledge, you have power to take the right action. Future tutorials will guide you through the next phase of evolution in consciousness.
