"We are faced with a harmonised collectivity of consciousnesses equivalent to a sort of super-consciousness. The idea is that of the earth not only becoming covered by myriads of grains of thought, but becoming enclosed in a single thinking envelope so as to form, functionally, no more than a single vast grain of thought on the sidereal scale, the plurality of individual reflections grouping themselves together and reinforcing one another in the act of a single unanimous reflection."

As mind is normally engaged in addressing itself to physical body, vitality in body, and external environment with the help of mental consciousness and inner consciousness, it is deprived of addressing itself to inner-environment to attain the state of Bliss (Ananda) by achieving transcendental consciousness and to realize the 'Self' by achieving the state of super-consciousness. Therefore these three levels of mental consciousness are known as Psychological sheath (Manomaya Kosh) Intellect Sheath (Vignana Maya Kosh) and Bliss Sheath (Anand Maya Kosh).
