Sukshma-parvan is the name given in yogic philosophy to the subtle realm of nature or prakriti.

Sukshma is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as “subtle” or “dormant.” It is often associated with things that do not have a gross, physical existence, but can be sensed or felt on a more subtle level. The etymology of parvan is quite complex, but in this context, it can be interpreted as meaning a “portion, part or division,” referring to the portion of prakriti it is describing.
