this is a huge topic in Buddhism and cannot easily be described. For some Buddhist traditions, built on the mind-only understanding of existence, consciousness or mind refers to both the individual bodyâ€“mind of any one person or being, and also the intrinsic, luminous, fully Enlightened mind that has transpersonal aspects. On a simple level, when Buddhists talk about mind they are including such things as feelings, emotions, volitions, perceptions and also bodily sensations; hence, the mind and body are not considered in Buddhism to be split as in western philosophy. up

Infrastructure of the mind in which flow together all the sensations, the intuitions and more in general the causes, or the set of causes, of a certain mental condition. The consciousness is that which makes us able to think, to test and exist. It puts the results of the experiences and the concepts of them in relation, furthermore it selects in a synthetic way confirmations and negations, approvals and contradictions.

The consciousness which I call "myself," the awareness that can say "I am" is the ray of Divine Awareness which illuminates the human mind.
