Dear Sri Dinesh,

All jīva-s, by default, have the three-fold body-mind complex. The three
are: gross body (sthūla śarīram), subtle body (sūkṣma śarīram) and causal
body (kāraṇa śarīram). The antaḥkaraṇa is a component of the subtle body.
Every jiva will have all these three bodies till one attains mokṣa. Sukha
and duhkha are experienced in the antahkarana. Animals too have these
