Gunas or Mental Qualities

 

 

 

 

Ayurveda believes that how we respond to the external world through the senses depends, greatly, on the specific balance of the Gunas: Sattva, Rajas and Tamas in our minds. So what do these three phases of creation have to do with the mind?

Agni (Digestive Fire) & AAM (Toxic undigested Food)

Absence of Aam and Balanced Agni is the key for Good Health and Longevity

Aam is undigested food material that has been left in the intestines and organs of the body. As undigested residue accumulates in the body's channels it putrefies, becomes very dense and sticky. This mucosy residue ferments, producing swelling and inflammation. Fermentation gives off gases, causing dryness and bloating, which is vata. Thus, these toxic gases enter the blood, muscle, bone, etc and degenerate these systems. This fermenting sticky aam-residue obstructs the functioning of the organs, tissues and cells. If this aam enters the Pancreas and blocks the channels it shows in the blood as Diabetes, if it enters in the Joints then it creates Rheumatoid Arthritis, If this aam enters the Lungs then Asthma, in the Heart creats Heart Block, in the Blood it shows as High Cholesterol and Triglycerides and if it enters the brain channels then lack of energy, confusion, insomnia and Depression occurs

The Three Doshas

 

 

Five Elements  

 


The answer lies in the fundamental nature of each element. All five elements are responsible for orchestrating creation, yet some elements play a more active role than others.


Vata, which is the principle of kinetic energy in the body, is mainly concerned with the nervous system and controls all body movements.


Pitta controls the body’s balance of kinetic and potential energies. All of pitta’s processes involve digestion or ‘cooking’, even if it’s the cooking of thoughts into theories in the mind. The enzymatic and endocrine systems are pitta’s main field.


Kapha, the principle of potential energy, controls body stability and lubrication. The tissues and wastes of the body, which vata moves around, are kapha’s province. At the cellular level vata moves nutrients into and wastes out of cells. Pitta digests nutrients to provide energy for cellular function and kapha governs the cell’s structure.In the digestive tract vata chews and swallows the food, pitta digests it, vata assimilates nutrients and expels wastes and kapha controls the secretions that lubricate and protect the digestive organs. In the mind vata retrieves data from memory for comparison with new data. Pitta processes the data and draws conclusions,which vata then stores as new memories. Kapha provides the stability needed for the mind to grasp a single thought at a time.
