CONTROL OF BODIES BY SELF
The SELF (JEEVATMA), through its Causal
Body should control the Mental and Astral
Bodies---drawing them Upwards

Elemental Essence is
CAUSAL taken into, and is later
BODY
expelled by the Mental
and Astral Bodies---
just like the Physical
MENTAL
BODY ASTRAL Body uses food
BODY

They will be drawn Downwards if the Elementals


are allowed to gain control---instead of the SELF
