"Ratha kalpana"

1. We have the famous immortal metaphor of the chariot explaining the Atma and the Body.

 
 

 

2. In the chariot sits the Sarathi ( driver), and the Yodha ( warrior).

 
 
 

3. In the body stays the Paramatma, the Self and the Jeevatma, the Ego and the entire technique of the Adhyatma Yoga is explained.

 
 

4. Here the Ratham ( chariot) represents our body,

 
 
 

5. Five horses are our five sense-organs ( Panchendriya),

 
 

6. Lagan ( kadjnan/saddles) of the horses is our Buddhi(intelligence),

 
 

7.  The Sarathi is our Mind,

 
 

8. Yodha is our Atma.
