Five Elements in Ayurveda

Our bodies are created in the same fabric of the universe. The same five elements aka 'Panchamahabhuta' in Ayurveda make up the entire universe and also create the human body. ⁣Most people are familiar with 'Doshas', but do you know that the three doshas- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are formed of the 5 elements in Ayurveda. The five elements are Akash (Space), Vayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Ap (Water) and Prithvi (Earth), and understanding these can help you unlock the secrets to your being.⁣⠀

The Five Great elements - Akash (Space), Vayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Ap (Water) and Prithvi (Earth) make up the fabric of the entire universe and our bodies.⁣ Our physical bodies are an expression of the five elements and as we leave the physical body the five elements dissolute and disperse back into nature.
