What is the difference between the ethereal body and the physical body?
Ethereal body is what you are, the Purusha/Soul/Self. This Purusha just forgets its own identity and thinks I am solid, I have a body. Thus a gross physical body is developed out of its own imagination. Just like water vapor cools into liquid water and then freezes into ice. You are not the physical body, it is just your imagination. Just like in a dream you feel everything is real, just like that you are lost and you consider all this as real. Neither are you real, nor am I, nor Gurudev, nothing! It is all a product of imagination. It is a dream. When you wake up from this dream, you will recognize yourself. You will know your ethereal body.
