'KaaraNa shariram' mentioned in Paingalopanishad
The term 'kaaraNa sharIram' is mentioned along with एतत्कोशत्रयं
लिङ्गशरीरम् which is another name for sukhsma shariram.
And sthula shariram: प्राप्यान्नरसमयपृथिव्यांयद्विलीयते सोऽन्नमयकोशः ।
तदेव स्थूलशरीरम् ।
...... ईशाज्ञया मायोपाधिरव्यक्तसमन्वितो व्यष्टि*कारणशरीरं* प्रविश्य
Thus the sharira trayam is mentioned in this Upanishad.
// The date or author of *Paingala Upanishad* is unclear, but given its
style and the texts it references, it is likely an early medieval era text
because the 8th-century scholar Adi Shankara
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adi_Shankara> refers to it in his bhasya
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhasya> (review and commentary) on Brahma
Shankara mentions the term 'kAraNa shariram' in the Ishavasya Bhashyam.
