Mano

A word found in Sanskrit compounds for manas or “mind,” as in, e.g., manomaya-koa (“mind-made-sheath” or “mental body”), manogupta (“cherished [or concealed] in the mind”), manoja or manojanma (“mind-born”), manodana (“control of mind”), etc. The term is also used by the Nazarenes in a sense which suggests the Heavenly Man of the Rg Veda (X, 90) or the Hindu (cf. IU I:300; quoted in SD I:195). See KOŚA.
