PANCHA MAHABHOOTA – THE FIVE ELEMENTS


This blog has been featured on NEPA YOGA FEST website. Yay :-)

The pure incense at yoga festivals



In vedic culture, it is believed that the whole universe is made of primary 5 elements called the Pancha Mahabhoota or Pancha Tattva. Pancha means five and mahabhoota means elements. These 5 elements are:


Agni (Fire), Prithvi (Earth), Vayu (Wind), Jala (Water), Akash (Space or Ether)



These five elements make not just the universe but our human body too. These elements work on a very root level and if not balanced can affect the quality of health & life. Example, if the space element is out of balance, can cause depression or other mental disorders. When the elements are out of balance known as ‘Tattva dosha’ can be balanced with meditation and mantra practice. It may not be possible for a common man to gain a deep understanding of Tattva Dosha and their removal. And hence a very easy alternative is provided here of daily pacifying tattvas and requires a very short time of almost 10 minutes. Daily pacification will help to reduce tattva dosha and doing it regularly can help in maintaining a balanced body & mind. The best way to do this is to offer the five items denoted by the 5 elements to the creator of this universe. Simply offer the below five items to a deity (Shiva Linga recommended)



Air:- Offer a incense stick or Dhoop inorder to cleanse and protect the your living space.


Fire:- Offer Lamp (Diya) to remove darkness from life and let knowledge come in.


Earth:- Offer Sandal Paste (Chandan) or any fruit (like banana or apple), to bring stability and grounding.


Akash:- Offer Fresh Flowers, to generate a loving and happy mind.


Jala:- Offer water, in order to feed and sustain everyone.

3) JapMala ( 108 beads) :


According to Ayurveda, we have 108 marma points (vital points of life forces) in our body. So, this is why all mantras are chanted 108 times because each chant represents a journey from our material self towards our highest spiritual self. Each chant is believed to bring you 1 unit closer to our god within.108 has significance in meditation as well. There are said to be 108 styles of meditation. In pranayama, the yogic practice of regulating breath, it is believed that if an individual can be so calm as to only breathe 108 times in one day, enlightenment will be achieved. Furthermore, an average person is said to breathe 21,600 times in a 24-hour period. Half, 10,800, are solar energy (breaths during day), and the other half is lunar energy (breaths during night). 100 multiplied with 108 equals 10,800. Also, in Kriya yoga, the maximum number of repetitions per session is said to be 108.Our body contains seven chakras, starting at the top of the head and ending at the base of the spine. Each chakra is said to be an energy center within our body. The heart chakra, located at the exact center of the chest, is associated with transformation and love energy. It is believed that opening this energy center will lead to joy and compassion. The heart chakra is said to have 108 nadi (energy lines) that converge to form this energy center. Lastly, 108 is a Harshad number. Such a number is an integer divisible by the sum of its digits. In Sanskrit, harsa means “joy” and da means “give”. Thus, Harshad translates to “joy giver.” So use this Mala to do Japa 108 times with whatever chant or purest name which makes you the whole.
