Ayurveda on State
The word Ayurveda derives from two Sanskrit roots, ayuh, meaning “life or longevity”, and veda, meaning “science, sacred knowledge, or wisdom.” Ayurveda is therefore the science of longevity and long life, conferring sacred knowledge and wisdom about life itself.
We are a microcosm of the vast macrocosm - just like Mother Nature, we are made of the five great elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Ayurveda understands the manifestation of the five elements in the individual through the doshas - Vata, Pitta & Kapha - organizational and energetic principles which express a person’s inborn and current relationship to the natural environment. The doshas serve as diagnostic aids, helping us to address imbalances that inevitably arise with the passage of time, through changing seasons and in different cultures and locations.
The doshas are composed of specific combinations of the five elements. Vata dosha combines the ether and air elements and expresses the principle of movement, governing breathing, nerve impulses, and communication. Pitta dosha combines the fire and water elements and expresses the principle of transformation, governing digestion, temperature, and intelligence. Kapha dosha combines the water and earth elements and expresses the principle of structure, governing growth, nutrition, the balance of fluids, and memory.
