Kāraṇopādhi

A Sanskrit compound word composed of karana (“casual”) and upadhi (“limitation,” “basis,” “attribute,” “appearance,” etc.), hence meaning “basis of causality” or “causal instrument.” In theosophical literature it has been used to denote both the CAUSAL BODY and the vehicle of BUDDHI or ANANDAMAYA-KOSA (“bliss-made-sheath”).

See CAUSAL BODY; KARANA SARIRA.
