Health is the combination of Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional & Spiritual (PMSES) well-being. This integrated approach towards life is called Yoga, oneness with the composite whole. The roots of this integrated approach comes from the ancient Yogic concept of 5 bodies: Physical – Annamaya Kosha Energy – Pranamaya Kosha, Mental – Manamaya Kosha, Wisdom – Vijnanmaya Kosha, Bliss – Anandamaya Kosha. SELF – Atman Kosha stands for Cover, as pearl shell covering the pearl. Science introduced time as the fourth dimension & spirituality introduces Permanent Bliss as the fifth & last dimension of the world. The goal of every goal of life is Peace & Happiness. The internal journey crosses different koshas to reach the permanent bliss through Yoga practices. The papers attempts to elaborate the impact of evolution of these 5 Koshas for spiritual awakening and will touch issues related to science of emotions & its impact on social, mental & spiritual growth. As biology is the science of body, botany is the science of plants similarly spiritualism is the science of life.
