The word tanu means all the three bodies, which are causal, subtle and gross.

118)Ataeva jivaatmaa tanvantarhitah.

 

 

(Therefore, Jivaatman, the composite of causal and subtle bodies, is mentioned by the same word ‘tanu’.)

 

 

The word tanu means all the three bodies, which are causal, subtle and gross. Since, the distinction between living causal – subtle (Jivaatman) and non-living gross bodies disappears in the presence of God, the Jivaatman is not given separate status and is mentioned by the same word tanu itself, which not only means gross body but also Jivaatman. Therefore, in Gita, when it is said that God enters the human body (Tanu), it means not only the human gross body but also the Jivaatman existing in the gross body.
