It relates to the beat of the heart and the rhythm of the lungs. The transformed substances must now be transported to the organs that use them. This is done through the cardiovascular sys­tem, governed by the Sun and the Ego. Everything to do with flow is a manifestation of circulation, for ex­ample the white protein in the blood called albumen. It even looks like the sun, or like an egg, intense at the core, with a white mantle around it. Any disturbance, where circulation suddenly gets out of rhythm, belongs to this pathology. If substances accumulate instead of going where they belong, you have illness. Albuminous processes circulating in the wrong place can cause diar­rhea or various forms of allergies (sudden nasal dis­charges). Right Judgment

The Sun is the symbol for the harmony between all the planetary qualities. The right judgement is done by detaching oneself from sympathy and antipathy within the situation.

How can we make a right decision, a right judgement? The Sun way is by first looking at the situation or decision through the qualities of each planet and then asking ourselves if the decision fits in the spiritual evolutionary stream working for mankind. In this way the decision is detached from personal sympathy or antipathy. It then becomes self-less and of service to mankind. The deed which accompanies the decision or judgement is then done with complete dedication, with complete awareness.
 

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Sunday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

The Right Contemplation

This exercise is to be done every evening before going to sleep. Before your inner view you unroll the day backwards from the end to the beginning as if it were a film about somebody else, objectively.

In the right contemplation exercise you judge with the higher Self. The Self looks at what you did, thought and felt; looks to see if you tried hard enough in practicing the exercises mentioned above; looks to see if you have been continuously aware of your place in the evolutionary stream; looks at your mistakes and imperfections; looks also how your immediate surroundings are coming along and where you can help. The Self also resolves to do better and searches ways which are within your possibilities but always working towards the high ideal.

Throwing-out. It is the total opposite of the Saturn forces. It is gov­erned by the Moon. Reproductive forces result in the formation of an embryo that grows and is ultimately a totality; a new world, excreted to the outside at birth. Sat­urn forces bring the outer world in, the Moon forces take the inner world out. Pa­thology in the reproductive realm includes genetic diseases. Right Word

The Moon mirrors and her weak side is that she does this unconsciously, without direction, goal.

This quality of being able to mirror can be transformed to conscious mirroring by practising using the right word. The more she watches what she says, in the end she will be able to speak the right word at the right moment to her fellow man. Her own quality of being able to mirror will then be directed toward the spiritual progress of mankind and will be the mirror of deliverance.

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Monday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

It relates to tissue and cell connections. It is the sum total of making sub­stance into the body's own cells, each one round like little mercury droplets. This process belongs to Mer­cury. Mercury also controls the intercellular messenger activity between each cell. All repair, scarring and heal­ing belong to Mercury. Too little produces weakness or hypermobility of tendons; too much can cause uterine fibroids or cysts. In congestive heart failure the heart muscle is not maintained enough. Right Point of View

The weak side of Mercury is that he does not hold direction; he jabs without follow-up. The strong side is his quick grasp of new ideas; he is not afraid of new concepts.

If Mercury can learn to hold on to the line of spiritual evolution and the cosmic rhythms, if he can learn to use this as a key for his innovations and his shaking loose of stagnant properties, then he can reach the right point of view and become a healing factor for mankind.

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Wednesday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

Throwing-out. It belongs to the same process that forms tissue or ac­tual organs like liver, lung, kidney, etc. It takes a new impulse, that comes from Venus, to individualize tissues and trans­form them into organs. When growth comes to an end, and the body as a whole presents itself to our eyes, we have a truly harmoni­ous 'whole' in front of us. Where do we see the Venus forces? They become obvious in the 'beauty' that the human form, in its entirety, has. All maturing has as its crown­ing point the formation of beauty. Right Memory

The weak side of Venus is losing herself in her own feelings. The strong side is empathy in feeling.

If Venus can create some distance between her feeling and her higher Self she can learn to use her feeling as an organ of perception. Then she can learn from experiences of others and from her own in relation with spiritual growth. In this way she can obtain the right memory, which means seeing things the way they are and not just remembering her own feelings in the situation, but learning from it and making the right connections. By using this right memory she can help her fellow men find their way in the stream of spiritual evolution.

It is also connected with Mars. Mars is an aggressive Planet, related to destruction. Nutrition has this same quality.Substances brought in with breathing, then warming, now must be broken down within the body. Nutrition has to do with breaking down of proteins, and building up new ones. Actually, the whole world of biochemical changes belongs to this life process. <br /> If a substance cannot be transformed, illnesses of deposit ensue, such as fat cholesterol, xan­thomas, deposits of water (edema), uric acid crystals, (gout), sugar deposits (diabetes) etc. These illnesses are a weakened Mars. Right Deed

The weak side of Mars is using uncontrolled action to solve problems. Immediate action without thinking the consequences through. The strong side is the fact that he can act; he is not afraid of acting.

p>Mars must learn to think first, to control his actions (this also applies to words). He can start by asking himself if his intended action would disturb his fellow man. This does mean that he has to build in this moment of reflection. He must try to enlarge his vision so that he can oversee the consequences of his deeds. Only with vision and love can he come to the right deed which is always good for all of mankind.

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Tuesday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

Taking-in. This directs our attention to whatever increases body temperature. One such process is the influence of the thyroid gland. We all know that people who suffer from an under-se­cretion of the thyroid feel cold and are slow. Thinking is con­nected to the planet Jupiter. <br /> Substances taken in by breathing need to be absorbed more deeply. This happens when food is taken across the gut wall and into the inner or­ganism, or when substances cross through the membranes into the cells. All of these passings, or ferryings, across walls require warmth, and create warmth. One of these ferrying processes is the ionic pump (such as the sodium potassium pump). Surpris­ingly 60% of the body's metabolic energy is generated just to keep these pumps go­ing. Sodium and potassium are substances that make electricity flow. They also make our nervous system function, which ulti­mately allows us to think. Thinking is con­nected to the planet Jupiter. Right Habit

The weak side of Jupiter is using his power as might through manipulation. His strong side is that he can oversee a huge amount of connections and can contain much at the same time.

Jupiter must try to use his power for the good of mankind and not for personal purposes. He has the possibility to contain much so let him set high ideals. In doing this he must also remember to understand his fellow man and that 'little' problems are just as important as 'big' ones.

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Thursday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

Breathing is related to Saturn. Taking-in. Steiner emphasizes that this is an occult term, which signifies "intake" from the outside world; the beginning of digestion. It encompasses taking in something as spiri­tual as thought, light, or oxygen through the lungs; or as physical as taking in food. <br />All these must be transformed as they are accepted by the body. If too much enters that cannot be processed, it will cause damage or illness. A first step is to control quantity and what comes in. If you take-in too much untransformed warmth, you will get burnt, as in radiation illness. Uncontrolled intake of substances that overwhelm you can lead to addiction or, physically as in smoking, can lead to cancer. Lastly, if the body constantly fights over­abundance, it gets used up; the typical pro­cess of aging. Right Option

Saturn's strength is being able to discern the essentials and his weaker trait is that he is so convinced of his own opinion that he doesn't really listen.

In the exercise 'the right opinion' one must quell one's own opinion to let the other (person or situation) enter one's being. That means that Saturn must let go of his rigidity, because even though he can easily find the essence he must learn to see that he does not always have all the facts. He must also learn not to be afraid to find that there are more facts than he can handle at that time and that by keeping inner calm and silence the essence will finally come to him. The fear arises out of self-interest and is not in service of mankind.

In addition to the above mentioned exercise for Saturday, one must do the "The Right Contemplation" exercise daily.

Description: The seeds swell with mucilage in the colon, which absorbs bacteria and toxins, soothes inflamed mucous membranes and moistens dryness. Psyllium seeds, however, may cause griping. They may be replaced with psyllium husks, which are a superior medicinal, or balanced by an aromatic like ginger or fennel.

Warning: The heavy property of psyllium tends to reduce Agni, and so for long
term usage balancing it out with a digestive stimulant would be
recommended anyway.

Ferrum Phosphoricum False 6x/30c Pending
Ferrum phosphoricum (Phosphate of Iron). This chemical has an affinity for oxygen which is carried into the circulation and diffused throughout the organism by the chemical force of this phosphate of iron. Just as the feet are the foundation of the body, so iron is the foundation of the blood. Through this foundation of the blood is ignited cells of both red and white. Iron is known as a magnetic mineral and magnetism is made possible by the body's knowledge. In the blood stream we find both red and white corpuscles and due to the chemical value of iron, they carry on the process of wheels within wheels or the interlocking cycles and rotations of metabolic activity. Lack of iron in the blood results in an over lymphatic condition. When the red corpuscles are short the result is a severe acid condition and generally results in anemia. This cell salt builds both the magnetism and the body's ability to utilize both nature and art. When iron is tempered to a high potency, it provides that stamina needed.

Vaata is that primal constituents of the living body, whose structure is Ether-Air (or vital life force and healing power of Vaata i.e Prana), and whose function is Raajasic, it being concerned with the production of those physical and mental proceses which are predominantly raajasic (activating or dynamic) in nature; hence, the presence of vaata is to be inferred in such mental phenomena as exhibition of enthusiasm, concentration, etc., as also in such physical phenomena as respiration, circulation, voluntary action of every kind, excertion and so on. It will be seen that many of these physical phenomena are included among those which modern physiologists would assign primarily to the activities of the Nervous system (both cerebropsinal and autonomic).

Besides being located in each and every cell, each dosha has a primary location known as its “seat”. If a dosha is starting to go out of balance, the first symptom will often occur at its seat.
Enthusiasm, inspiration, expiration, movements, normal processing of dhatus, and normal elimination if excreta. Holds up the systems and organs, initiates upward and downward movements, leads and controls the mind, employs all sense organs in their activity, carries all sense objects, causes structural formation of all bodily dhatus, promotes union in the body, prompts speech, originates touch and sound, is the root of auditory and tactile sense organs, is source of exhiliration and courage, stimulated agni, absorbs dosas, throws out excreta, makes the gross and subtle channels, shapes the foetus and maintains life-span. Produces emaciation, black dis-coloration, desire for hot things, distention of the abdomen, constipation, loss of strength, sleep and of sensory functions, irrelevant speech, giddiness and timidity (peevishness).

It is pacified by drugs having opposite quality to it’s own qualities. Sweet, sour, salted, unctuous, and hot therapeutic measures, and also application of non-unctuous and unctuous enema, snuffing, diet, massage, anointing, bath, etc. in appropriate dose and time. Non-unctuous and unctuous enema are the most important. They overcome all vata symptoms like cutting down a tree at the roots surely kills all trunk, branches and leaves.

Oil is also a prime remedy for Vaata.

Pitta is that primal constituent of the living body, whose structure is Fire-Water (or inner light and healing power of Pitta i.e Tejas), and whose function is Saatwic, it being concerned with the production of those physical and mental processes which are predominantly saatwic (balancing or transformative) in nature; hence, the presence of Pitta is to be inferred in such mental phenomena like intellection and clear concentration, as also in such physical phenomena as digestion, assimilation, heat production and so on. It will be seen that many of these physical phenomena are among those which modern physiologists would include under the activities of Thermogenetic and Nutritional systems (including thermogenesis and the activities of glandular or secretory structures), especially of the endocrine glands whose internal secretions or hormones are now known to be of such vital importance in digestion, assimilation, tissue-building and metabolism generally.

Sweet, bitter, astringent and cold measures and application of unction, purgation, pasting, bath, massage, etc. which alleviate pitta. Purgation is the best, because it removes the source of Pitta quite effectively. An analogy: In a wood stove, when we remove the fire from it’s firechamber, the stove surely becomes cold.

Ghee is also a top remedy for Pitta.

Substances having the opposite qualities to Kapha reduce it. Pungent, bitter, astringent, sharp, hot and rough measures. Also fomentation, emesis, snuffing, exercise, etc. Emesis is the best. It works surely, just as rice plants will surely dry out and die when the rice field’s earth water dam is opened up.

Honey is a top remedy for Kapha.

Prana - Lead Breath
(Prana - Ether)
{Vaata}
Upward, Inward Head Heart Breathing and swallowing of food Reception of all things: food, air, senses, thoughts Prana is present in the head and moves downward and inward. It is connected with higher cerebral function. Prana vayu is located in the cranial cavity and it moves in the head. It also moves down to the throat, heart, trachea, lungs, and diaphragm. Because of this movement, prana is responsible for inhalation.Prana creates a union of outer cosmic prana and inner prana. Prana moves the mind and prana becomes mind. If one controls prana, one can control the mind. Prana is movement of mind, thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensation, and perception. When prana is motionless, it becomes blissful awareness. So, awareness becomes perception, perception becomes sensation, and sensation becomes feelings. Then thoughts arise and feelings become emotions. This is the natural order. Motionless prana is Pure Awareness. The moment prana moves in a particular direction, awareness becomes attention and attention becomes perception. Through perception, prana creates sensation through which one senses the object of perception. Then sensation becomes feelings and feelings create emotion. Therefore, emotion is the reaction to the flow of prana and all emotions come from memory. Disorders above the belly button. Palpitation, dyspnea, undue awareness of respiration, or breathlessness, anxiety, nervousness, fear and anger, inability to focus mind, stroke, paralysis, grand mal epilepsy, sleep apnea, tremors of Parkinson's disease, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, hiccoughs, constant burping.
Udana - Upward Breath
(Udana - Air)

Upward Throat Circulation flow around head and neck Moves upward Speech and Intellect, Self-expression The next important vayu is udana, which is upward moving energy. Udana vayu is located in the diaphragm and moves upward through the lungs, bronchi, trachea, and throat. Udana also goes up into the brain and stimulates memory. Udana is the nerve impulse that takes place at the solar plexus and tracheal plexus. It governs the movement of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles, and helps the process of exhalation. Udana is responsible for speech and expression. A person cannot speak without exhalation. Prana vayu is the energy that brings oxygen into the lungs and udana vayu is responsible for exhalation of carbon dioxide. Udana vayu helps oxygenation. When oxygenation is good, the person appears fresh and vital. When a child crawls on the floor and tries to raise its head, that is udana vayu. If udana is weak, the child cannot lift its head or support its neck. Difficulty of speech, such as stuttering or muttering, lack of memory, lack of creativity, and no sense of goal or direction, depression and discoloration of the skin, hoarseness of voice, asthma, pneumonia, emphysema - as well as blushing and flushing.
Samana - Equalizing Breath
(Samana - Fire)
{Vaata}
Periphery to Center of Body Abdomen Abdomen Isolation, Separation, Splitting Digestion Samana vayu is present in the small intestine and navel. It moves the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum. This vayu provides the stimulus for the secretion of digestive juices. Therefore, samana vayu is closely connected with agni (digestive fire). There are agnis in the liver and samana vayu provides the energy to secrete the liver enzymes. The bile that is secreted from the liver, along with the liver enzymes, are accumulated in the gallbladder by samana vayu. It constricts the gallbladder and pushes the bile from the gallbladder through the bile duct into the duodenum. All of these movements are governed by samana vayu. This vayu plays an important role in creating hunger. When one feels hungry, samana is awake. Samana sends a message to prana asking for food. When one eats, samana vayu stimulates the secretion of hydrochloric acid and opens the pyloric valve for movement of foodstuff into the duodenum. Samana vayu brings the foodstuff into the cecum, which is called the second stomach. The entire movement around the belly button is samana vayu and this movement is linear and outward. Disorders at the belly button. Loss of appetite, indigestion, increased or decreased peristalsis, bloating, lack of absorption and assimilation, poor digestion, malabsorption syndrome.

Circular, Center to Periphery of Body Heart and Lungs Whole body Pulsation, Throbbing Intential body movements (Autonomic nervous system), Circulation of all subtances The main function of vyana vayu is to maintain cardiac activity, circulation, nutrition and oxygenation of cell tissues and organ systems. Vyana vayu is present in the heart and maintains the circulation of arterial blood, venous blood, and lymphatic circulation. Vyana moves throughout the body. Vyana is a strong vayu and all reflex actions, including the corneal reflex, are governed by its energy. It is responsible for the movement of the joints and skeletal muscles through the reflex arc. The reflex arc goes only to the spinal cord and not to the brain, and the spinal cord answers these reflexes. Poor circulation and sudden lack of oxygenation, when coronary arteries are clogged a person may get ischemic heart disease, Edema, or stagnation of blood in the lower extremities, Horripilation, Shivering.

Downward, Outward Pelvic Lower Abdomen Holding Elimination of all substances Apana vayu is present in the pelvic cavity, in the cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon, rectum, and urinary tract. Apana vayu is also present in the vagina and cervix of a woman and testicles, prostate, and urethra of a man. It moves downward and outward. It regulates the function of the kidneys. The urine is filtered in the kidneys and drop-by-drop is brought down into the bladder. It also stimulates menstruation, defecation, and flatulence. Apana is motor function working with different segments of the lumbosacral spine. From the lumbosacral spine the message is carried to the bladder to evacuate urine; to the rectum to evacuate feces; to the womb to produce menstruation or delivery of a child. Apana pushes the child from the womb. It nourishes the bones through the colon mucous membrane and the absorption of minerals It regulates the movement of the sciatic nerve and the lower part of the body. It is also responsible for movement of sperm in the man and the desire to make love. In the woman, apana stimulates ovulation, regulates menstruation, and during pregnancy apana nourishes the fetus and moves it during delivery. During intercourse, apana of the man and woman merge together and bring the meeting of the sperm and ovum. Apana is responsible for conception. If apana is weak, conception is not possible. If apana vayu is weak, a woman accumulates fat in the thighs. Disorders below the belly button are associated with this vayu. Constipation, Diarrhea, Retention of urine, no menstruation or heavy manstruation. Pain during menstruation, pain during sex, lower backache, paint during ovulation, sexual impariment, premature ejaculation or premature orgasm, osteoporosis.
Sadhaka - Helper
(Sadhaka - Ether)
{Pitta}
N.A Brain (gray matter) Heart Conscious thinking and emotions; comprehension Intellect and Memory Sadhaka pitta is present in the gray matter of the brain as certain neurotransmitters, and in the heart as part of the cardiac plexus or the heart chakra. It is responsible for knowledge, understanding, comprehension, and appreciation. It transforms sensations into feelings and emotions. It also creates the feeling of “I am" that is ego. In Vedic philosophy the ego is not a bad thing. A person must have self-confidence, self-esteem, and that self-esteem is called ego. ahamkara. Self-esteem is essential for survival and growth. The pitta present in the nervous system that is responsible for all neuro-chemical changes is sadhaka pitta. The gray matter of the brain regulates the temperature of neurons and that is also sadhaka pitta. It is sadhaka pitta that helps to transform molecules of food, water, and air into a biological cellular component called cytoplasm. The content of cytoplasm is further transformed into awareness by subtle cellular metabolic activity because of sadhaka pitta. All biochemical neurotransmitters, which are necessary to maintain higher cerebral activity, fall under sadhaka pitta. The unprocessed cytoplasmic content becomes emotion. Every thought, feeling, and emotion should be processed into intelligence. That which is not processed is crystallized and stored in the connective tissue. Sadhaka pitta also transforms physical sound into nerve impulse, which is carried to the center of hearing where every sound, as a nerve impulse, is transformed, cooked, digested, and translated into meaning. Meaning is feeling. The word “love” creates certain feelings in one's heart. Love cannot be described but pure essence of love can be felt. If you say that anything that cannot be described does not exist, that means you have lost feeling. Feeling is called ESP—extrasensory perception. Sadhaka pitta, which is present in the brain cells as a specialized neuro-chemical substance, creates ESP, the important sixth sense. Prana is a flow of awareness and this flow of intelligence is neuro-electricity that is moving through the nerves and delivering a message. Though messenger molecules are RNA molecules, prana brings the message from DNA to RNA. So there is a functional relationship between DNA molecules, which create new cells, and RNA molecules, which are the messengers. Prana brings the message. Past memory and experience is stored in the RNA/DNA molecules. In the process of recognition, sadhaka pitta penetrates the memory and chooses a particular file from the vast hologram of RNA/DNA molecules. This is a function of buddhi, the intellect. 'Reality' is a product of mind. Reality in this room is different to reality in another room. 'Truth' that is confined by time and space becomes reality. 'Actuality' is a product of the senses. The pencil in someone’s hand is actual to that person at that time. Therefore, it is also reality to them. When you look at them holding the pencil, it is your reality, but only when you touch it does it become actual to you. So what is the relationship between Truth, reality, and actuality? Reality has to pass through actuality, or actuality must come in close contact with reality, in order to realize Truth. So Truth is unconditional, universal absolute. The moment a person experiences that, it becomes personal reality. As long as a person is in the dream, dream is reality. When he comes out of the dream, reality changes, because reality is bound by time and space. Truth is not. In that sense, awareness is Truth, consciousness is reality, and perception is actuality. So perception has to pass through consciousness in order to reach awareness, which means actuality has to go through reality in order to reach the Truth. This transformation is governed by sadhaka pitta. It is sadhaka pitta that bridges this function of looking and listening with total existence. Then existence becomes actual. When we internalize actuality, or reality, it becomes Truth. Truth has a relationship with reality and actuality, but actuality and reality may not have a relationship to the Truth, because the bridge between actuality and reality of Truth is sadhaka pitta. Therefore, we can only have a clear relationship with Truth if sadhaka pitta is healthy. Sadhaka pitta is necessary for the transformation of an object into pure experience. When experience is recorded in the brain cells, it becomes memory and memory is knowledge. No information available.
Alochaka - Seer
(Alochaka - Air)
{Pitta}
N.A Eyes Eyes Maintains iris color, Visual perception Vision Alochaka pitta is present in the eye and governs the luster, color, and translucence of the eye. It is present in the cornea to maintain transference and translucence. It is present in the iris to maintain color and in the lens to maintain transference. It is also present in the vitreous humor and in the cone and rod cells. Alochaka pitta is necessary for optical perception. It maintains the temperature of the eyeball, the color of the iris, color vision, and vision of light. When you look at an object, that image is formed on the retina and absorbed by the sharp quality of alochaka pitta into the optic nerve. Then prana vayu carries that image to the mind for interpretation. Alochaka pitta maintains visual perception and three-dimensional vision. If you have only one eye, what you see is a flat picture. Binocular vision, with two eyes, is three-dimensional. One of the important functions of alochaka pitta, along with prana, is accommodation (ability to focus), which means the constriction or dilation of the pupil, so that appropriate light is allowed to enter and fall on the retina for clear perception of an object. Alochaka pitta is responsible for generating the visual impulse, which prana then carries to the mind, to buddhi, where interpretation of the impulse is accomplished by sadhaka pitta. So, alochaka pitta meets sadhaka pitta in buddhi, where interpretation of visual perception takes place. This meeting point is in the occipital cortex, the posterior (back) portion of the head. If there is trauma at this meeting point, a person may become blind. Alochaka pitta is also associated with emotions. Different emotions bring a different chemistry to the tears. Tears of joy and love are sweet, scanty, and cool, and come from the lateral (outer) side of the eye. Tears of anger come from the center of the eye and are sour to the taste, and hot. Tears of frustration, grief, sadness, and fear come from the medial (inner) side and are bitter and astringent to the taste. Eyes have the capacity to see the truth. When you look without judgment, without interference of thought and mind, the eyes become the windows of God and you can perceive the Truth. If your thought and mind interfere, then you perceive reality, because reality is a product of your mind. We need sensitive alochaka pitta that can perceive the truth of reality, the truth of actuality. When you perceive the Truth, there is love, clarity, compassion, and pure awareness. Glaucoma, changes in the eyes leading to shortsightedness or farsightedness. If alochaka pitta is increased, it may create conjunctivitis, styes, iritis, burning sensation in the eye, and photophobia.
Pachaka - Cooker
(Pachaka - Fire)
{Pitta}
N.A Small Intestine, Stomach Small Intestine, Stomach Digestion, absorption and assimilation of foods Digestion The pitta present in the stomach and small intestine is called pachaka pitta. The intestinal digestive juice that is secreted from the villi of the small intestine is also pachaka pitta. The pachaka pitta in the stomach is a part of jathara agni. Jathara means stomach. This agni is the central fire, gastric fire, and this digestive fire in the stomach is the main agni in the body. When the gastric fire in the stomach is high and there is more secretion of hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes, the stomach becomes grouchy and creates the sensation of hunger. The pachaka pitta in the stomach and the pachaka pitta in the small intestine work together. Jathara agni is composed of pachaka pitta, prana vayu, samana vayu, and kledaka kapha. This pitta governs the digestion in the stomach within the first two hours after the ingestion of food. Then the pyloric valve opens and the food passes into the duodenum, the upper part of the small intestine. Hyperacidity, hypoglycemia, and craving for sugar, gastritis, peptic ulcer, indigestion, anorexia, and dyspepsia.
Ranjaka - Colorer
(Ranjaka - Water)
{Pitta}
N.A Liver, Spleen, Intrinsic Factor in Stomach Liver, Spleen, Intrinsic Factor in Stomach Produces bile, liver enzymes, gives color to blood, Blood formation Blood Ranjaka pitta in the liver gives color to all tissues. Skin color, hair color and the color of eyes are related to ranjaka pitta. Ranjaka pitta is responsible for erythrogenesis, the creation of red blood cells in the bone marrow, which are mixed with rasa dhatu, the plasma. Thus, ranjaka pitta is responsible for giving color to the blood. Ranjaka pitta in the stomach is intrinsic factor, which is responsible for the production of blood in the bone marrow. Ranjaka pitta in the spleen kills bacteria and parasites as well as produces some white blood cells (rasa dhatu), so its job is more protective. There is a functional integrity between the liver, stomach, spleen, and bone marrow. If the function of the liver is affected, the bone marrow will also be affected. If the function of the stomach is affected, it will affect the liver. In a way, the spleen and liver also have functional integrity. The job of the spleen is to filter the blood and to send unwanted, heavy, old red blood cells to the liver; the liver destroys them and separates the hemoglobin from the blood. Then the liver utilizes the hemoglobin that is liberated for the production of bile salts, pigment, and enzymes. Therefore, when the spleen is enlarged the liver may also be enlarged, and vice versa. There is a fine line between ranjaka agni, bhuta agni (element fires), and rakta agni. Ranjaka agni incorporates bhuta agni. It gives color to rasa dhatu and transforms rasa into immature (asthayi) rakta dhatu. Bhuta agni is the specialized function of ranjaka agni in the liver that converts food and other substances into their elemental components. Rakta agni does further transformation of asthayi rakta into mature (sthayi) rakta dhatu, essential to the maturation of red blood cells. There are 5 bhuta agnis: Nabhasa agni (Ether fire), Vayavya agni (Air fire), Tejo agni (Fire), Apo agni (Water fire), Parthiva agni (Earth fire). There is a relationship between ranjaka pitta and alochaka pitta, the pitta associated with the eyes. If the sclera is yellow, it is due to a disorder of ranjaka pitta and alochaka pitta. The eyes and liver are connected, and toxicity in the liver may create visual disturbance. Photophobia is sensitivity to light due to toxicity in the liver. The same thing happens if a person drinks too much alcohol. When the liver metabolizes alcohol, excess pitta is produced. Visual perception on a subtle level is also affected, because a ranjaka pitta disorder may even affect the sadhaka pitta of the brain. Hepatitis, anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, mononucleosis. When kapha disturbs ranjaka pitta, the person may develop gallstones. If kapha is long-standing and lingers in the liver, the person may develop high cholesterol, fatty degeneration of the liver, or steatorrhea (fatty diarrhea).
Bhrajaka - Shiner
(Bhrajaka - Earth)
{Pitta}
N.A Skin Whole body Maintains skin color, Texture and temperature, Stereognosis Normal pigmentation of skin This pitta keeps the skin warm and is responsible for normal complexion and luster. It also helps in the processing of oils, pastes, and medications applied externally to the skin. When we apply, for instance, sandalwood or ginger paste, the agni principle of bhrajaka absorbs and assimilates the substance. The skin is a gate or door that is kept functional by bhrajaka pitta. Bhrajaka pitta works in connection with ranjaka pitta and pachaka pitta. Skin care is important in Ayurveda. Oil is absorbed through the skin and the quality of the oil penetrates deeply into the connective tissue all the way to the bone. The medium that carries and absorbs that oil is bhrajaka pitta. Eczema, dermatitis, acne, and anesthesia—loss of sense of touch, tingling, and numbness.
Tarpaka - Satisfier
(Tarpaka - Ether)
{Kapha}
N.A Brain (white matter) Myelin Sheath, Cerebrospinal Fluid Subconscious thinking and emotions, memory Intelligence Tarpaka kapha is predominantly present in the white matter of the brain. It is thick, sticky, slimy, and soft. Tarpaka nourishes the brain cells. The liquid qualities of tarpaka kapha are present in the meninges and cerebrospinal fluid, which surround the soft brain tissue and the spinal cord. Tarpaka kapha brings energy to rasa dhatu (plasma) by way of the sweet and salty tastes, creating a feeling of happiness. If a crying child is given sugar, he becomes happy and stops crying. Another important site of tarpaka kapha is the myelin sheath, a protective sheath surrounding most nerve cells. Tarpaka kapha lubricates the sinuses and nasal cavities and is present in the spinal cord, where it governs the reflex arc. The tarpaka kapha in the spinal cord acts as a medium for the completion of the circuit for the reflex arc. If batteries are dry, nothing happens. So tarpaka kapha in the spinal cord acts like a battery solution. Tarpaka kapha helps to create neurological time, which is stimulus and response. Psychological time is thought. There is no space without time. Time is space and space is distance. If tarpaka kapha becomes thick and firm, there is crystallization, rigidity, and callousness, which create confusion. Confusion is conclusion and this conclusion is judgment that is stored in tarpaka kapha. We carry the memory of our parents' illnesses within the DNA molecules, which is tarpaka kapha. If a person’s grandfather had diabetes, taipaka kapha carries, tapaka kapha carries that memory of diabetes in the person's cells. We seek security by retaining memories and tarpaka kapha performs this task. When a child burns his hand in a fire, that memory is recorded. Now when he sees fire, he knows not to play with the flame. There is safety and security in biological memory, which is absolutely necessary for safety. We also have psychological memories of childhood suffering. Whatever treatment received from parents or teachers during the first seven years of life, stays with us through life and shapes our personality. Within tarpaka kapha there is a space beyond time and aging, which can be reached through sensitive awareness. In other words, one can avoid the DNA problems. Within that space, a person will no longer live in the past. To live in the present means to live in a timeless space. To live now means to live in eternity. To live in your relationships with these qualities of taipaka kapha is to live with God. Stroke paralysis, Parkinson’s disease, or brain tumors. Concussion, compression, or contusion may affect tarpaka kapha and change the entire personality.
Avalambaka - Supporter
(Avalambaka - Air)
{Kapha}
N.A Lungs, Pleural Cavity, Heart, Respiratory Tract, Spine Heart Support, Holds emotions, Supports all kapha systems Energy in Limbs Avalambaka kapha is an important kapha that supports all kapha systems in the body, functionally as well as structurally. It includes the spine as well as the lungs and heart. It carries pranic energy from the lungs to every cell, tissue, and organ. It is supportive to both the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Avalambaka kapha is present in the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, in the trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles. Avalambaka kapha also supports the intracostal muscles and ribs. Because of its liquid quality, avalambaka kapha helps with gaseous exchange by removing unwanted carbon dioxide from the alveoli so that oxygen can enter. In addition, avalambaka kapha provides the liquid quality within the pulmonary trunk so that oxygenated blood can be carried to the heart. Avalambaka kapha protects the lungs and alveoli, and maintains the tone of the muscular layer of the bronchi. In addition, as pericardial fluid it protects the heart muscle. Kledaka kapha and avalambaka kapha have functional integrity. Without kledaka kapha, avalambaka kapha cannot do anything. Avalambaka creates confidence, courage, and ability to face problems so that the chest is expanded. When the chest is contracted, the person is not able to cope with challenges. Psychologically, avalambaka kapha is associated with support, love, and compassion. When there is excessive grief and sadness, avalambaka kapha becomes sticky, and lung function is affected. The lungs are the seat of grief and sadness. The inferior quality of avalambaka kapha may create pulmonary changes and collapse of the bronchial lumen. Bronchitis, asthma, bronchiectasis, pneumonia, and emphysema are all due to dysfunction of avalambaka kapha.
Kledaka - Wetter
(Kledaka - Fire)
{Kapha}
N.A Stomach, Gastrointestinal Tract Stomach Gastric secretion, Digestion and absorption, Nourishes rasa Moistening of food in stomach Kledaka kapha is present in the gastrointestinal tract. It is liquid, soft, slightly oily, and slimy. This kapha creates a protective lining as the gastric mucous membrane. This membrane can be destroyed when food is consumed. Cayenne pepper, curry pepper, and alcohol dissolve the mucous membrane. Within 72 hours, kledaka kapha provides a fresh, new mucosal lining to protect the wall of the stomach. The stomach is divided into the greater curvature and the lesser curvature. The lesser curvature is the acid bearing area that secretes more hydrochloric acid and other digestive juices, which are pachaka pitta. The greater curvature, or fundus, produces more kledaka kapha. The lesser curvature of the stomach is near the liver, a pitta organ. The greater curvature is near the spleen, whose function is to filter blood. Sleeping on the left side suppresses kapha and builds pitta. The greater curvature of the stomach goes down and the lesser curvature is pressed toward the liver, creating more acid secretion. People who sleep on the left side can increase digestive fire but may have hyperacidity. People who sleep on the right side can calm pitta but might induce kapha aggravation, leading to sinus congestion. Sleeping on the right side brings more spleen energy, while sleeping on the left side suppresses spleen energy and builds more liver energy. When you sleep on the right side, the stomach empties earlier, because the pyloric valve is on the right. However, the food leaving the stomach may not be fully digested. Optimally, one should wait three or more hours after a meal before going to sleep so the stomach has emptied completely. With excess kledaka: Obesity, obsessive eating habits, hyperglycemia, diabetes, high cholesterol. With insufficient kledaka: hypoglycemia, peptic ulcer.
Bodhaka - Perceiver
(Bodhaka - Water)
{Kapha}
N.A Mouth Mouth Salivary secretions, Taste, Swallowing, Speech Taste It is located in the mouth and is represented by saliva, which is liquid, sticky, sweet, and slightly unctuous. The liquid quality of bodhaka kapha keeps the mouth wet and soft. The agni of bodhaka kapha, called bodhaka agni, is responsible for maintaining the oral temperature. Any substance that goes into the mouth causes secretion of bodhaka kapha. Bodhaka kapha also lubricates the tonsils, pharynx, and vocal cords. The epiglottis is well lubricated by bodhaka kapha so that foodstuffs can slide over the epiglottis directly into the esophagus without entering the trachea. The pharynx leads to the esophagus and the larynx leads to the lungs. This space within the throat is moistened, and the posterior wall of the pharynx is also well lubricated, by bodhaka kapha. Kledaka kapha works in conjunction with bodhaka kapha in the digestion of protein, starch, and carbohydrates. Thick saliva indicates dental calculi, diabetes, worms, or Parkinson’s disease. Excess saliva or a sticky mouth may also indicate dehydration or pre-diabetes, because stickiness of the mouth is due to sweet saliva. In a 24-hour period, we swallow about one pint of saliva and in this way bodhaka kapha nourishes kledaka kapha. In addition, through saliva bodhaka kapha helps to maintain water electrolyte balance.
Shleshaka - Embracer
(Shleshaka - Earth)
{Kapha}
N.A Joints Joints Lubricates joints (synovial fluid), Nourishes bones Lubrication of joints Shleshaka kapha is thick, sticky, liquid, oily and slimy. It is present all over the body, and especially in the joint spaces, where two bones come together. It lubricates the joints and nourishes the articular (joint) surfaces and cartilages to promote easy movement. One of the important functions of shleshaka kapha is to support the skeletal system and to strengthen the ligaments. Degenerative arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis.

Rasa
Plasma, Blood Serum, Lymph
5 days 9 anjali (1 Anjali is 2 hands cupped together) Nutrition, Affection, Immunity Top layer of skin, Lactation, Menstruation Kapha (Poshaka kapha) Rasa dhatu is the first and foremost juice of all life—from the amoeba to the human being and is associated with plasma, serum, and lymph. Ahara rasa is the immature form of rasa dhatu and forms within 12 hours of the intake of food. Rasa agni, the fire principle of rasa, transforms ahara rasa into Mature Rasa and Immature Rakta. This transformation, from food to plasma, takes five days.

Rasa dhatu contains both hot and cold molecules. The hot molecules are red blood cells and the cold molecules are white blood cells. Rasa—which includes white blood cells—and rakta (red blood cells) function together. White blood cells and red blood cells bathe and breathe in plasma, which is rasa dhatu. Plasma also includes blood serum and lymph, the circulating fluid of the lymphatic system. In fact, the entire lymphatic system is part of rasa dhatu.

Kledaka Kapha, Vyana Vayu, and a small amount of Pachaka Pitta are present in rasa dhatu. Because of the presence of Vyana vayu, rasa dhatu is mobile, active, and keeps flowing. Pachaka pitta gives rasa a yellowish color. Without pachaka pitta, which contains agni, the transformation of asthayi (immature/raw) into sthayi (mature) rasa is impossible.

Rakta
Red blood cells
10 days 8 anjali (1 Anjali is 2 hands cupped together) Life function, Oxygenation, Enthusiasm Blood vessels, granulation tissues, Small tendons and sinews Pitta (Poshaka Pitta) Rakta dhatu is the red blood cells in the heart and blood vessels, and it provides a bridge between the body’s internal and external environments by carrying nutrients to the tissues. It transports nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract, prana from the lungs and vyana from the heart to the cells of the body. The waste products from the cells in the form of carbon dioxide are carried to the lungs. Other waste products are carried by the blood to other excretory organs and are related to apana vayu.

Although rasa and rakta dhatus are integrated and function together, they are considered separate systems in Ayurvedic theory. From ahara rasa (the nutrient precursor), it takes five days for Mature Rasa dhatu to be formed. Mature rasa and Immature/Raw Rakta are formed at the same time. After 10 days, Mature rakta is formed.

Rasa and rakta dhatus regulate temperature by distributing heat from the skeletal muscles and active organs to all body parts. This distribution of heat is an important function of rasa and rakta dhatus together.

Ranjaka pitta is present in rakta dhatu, as is Prana Vayu and Vyana Vayu, and together they are responsible for circulation.

Bone marrow, Nervous tissue, Connective tissue
35 days 2 anjali (1 Anjali is 2 hands cupped together) Reproduction, Produce ojas, Emotional release Lacrimal secretions Oily secretions in eyes Majja dhatu includes both the nerve tissue and the bone marrow. Bone marrow is a soft jelly-like tissue within the cavity of the bone. Every bone has a little foramen, a small hole, through which the nerves and blood vessels enter the bone tissue. Therefore, the bone tissue has a sense of pain, pressure and position of the joint. Whenever your joint is flexed or extended, you know its position because of majja dhatu.

Majja dhatu is the seat of the conscious and subconscious mind. The frontal lobe of the brain governs the emotional brain. According to Ayurveda, the superior area governs vata, the middle governs pitta and the inferior governs kapha. Anxiety, fear and nervousness are located more in the vata area. Anger, judgment and criticism are in the pitta area. Attachment, greed and possessiveness are found in the kapha area.

Vital Essences

Go to top
Name Description
Prana/Qi It is the Original Force of Life. It is the subtle energy of the Air principle (Vaata) masterful force behind all the functions of the body and the mind. It is responsible for the corodination of breathing, the senses and the mind. At a depper level it governs the development of elevated states of conscience.
Tejas/Shen It is the Inner Radiance. It is the subtle energy of the Fire principle (Pitta) through which we take in impressions and feelings. At a deep level it regulations the expansion of the elevated perceptual capacities.
Ojas/Jing It is the Original Vigor. It is the subtle energy of Water principle (Kapha). At a deep level it supports and nourishes all the elevated states of the conscience. Ojas is the essence of the 7 dhatus/tissues.

Koshas

Go to top
Name Description
Annamaya (Sheath of Food) It is the outermost of the koshas "the sheath of food". We take care of it, nurture it, so that we can both enjoy our external lives and go inward without it being an obstacle during meditation time. In meditation, we become aware of Annamaya kosha, explore it, and then go inward, to and through the other koshas.
Pranamaya (Sheath of Energy) It is the vital force that produces the subtle vibrations related to breath, and which are the driving force behind the physical aspect of the senses and the operation of the physical body. It is very useful, or essential that this level of our being be trained, regulated, and directed, so that it flows smoothly. In meditation, we become aware of Pranamaya kosha, explore it, and then go inward, to and through the other koshas.
Manamaya (Sheath of Mental) It is the level of processing thoughts and emotions. It is in direct control of the operation, through the prana, of the physical body and senses. It is like a supervisor in a factory, in that it gives instructions, but is not supposed to be the manager of the factory of life. Because of this, it naturally has doubts, and created illusions. When it receives clear instructions from the deeper level, it functions quite well. However, when it is clouded over by its illusions, the deeper wisdom is clouded over. After taking care of the physical body and training the energy flow of prana, the most important part to be trained in positive ways is this level of mind. In meditation, we become aware of Manamaya kosha, explore it, and then go inward, to and through the remaining koshas.
Vijnanamaya (Sheath of Wisdom) It is the sheath of wisdom that is underneath the processing, thinking aspect of mind. It knows, decides, judges, and discriminates between this and that, between useful and not useful. It is also the level of ego consciousness, meaning the powerful wave of I-am-ness. This I-am-ness itself is a positive influence, but when it gets co-mingled with the memories, and is clouded over by the manas, it loses its positive strength. A major part of sadhana (spiritual practice) is gaining ever increasing access to this level of our being. It is the level that has the higher wisdom to seek Truth, to go within, in search of the eternal center of consciousness.
Anandamaya (Sheath of Bliss) It is the most interior of the koshas, the first of the koshas surrounding the Atman, the eternal center of consciousness. Yet, even this bliss, however wonderful it is, is still a covering, a sheath, a lampshade covering the pure light of consciousness. It is the subtle most of the five koshas. In the silence of deep meditation, this too is let go of, so as to experience the center.

Polarity Principles

Go to top
Name Nervous System Dosha PolarityChange TypeOfForce Deity TypeOfTree StateOfMind CurrentName CurrentDirection Description CurrentDescription
Air principle Parasympathetic Vaata Neutral Creative Brahma Tree of Life Super-consciousness mind. Transverse East-West Sattvic principle is one of neutrality. It is the principle of essence and stillness. It is a presentation of the unconditioned neutral state found in all existence. It is, as the Chinese say, the stillness within motion which is at the centre of the any event. It is the Neutral ground from which energy moves. It emanates from the positive and negative poles (top and bottom) of the neutral sushumna current of the core energy system. It then spirals transversely around the body. Its function is one of intercommunication and binding. It is a neutral feedback pattern and helps to relate the periphery of the energy system to the core.
Fire principle Sympathetic Pitta Positive Protective Vishnu Tree of Nourishment Activity of conscious mind. Spiral Foward-Backward Rajasic principle is the positive yang phase of energy movement. It is the driving aspect of energy suggesting action and propulsion whose quality is the expansive, centrifugal phase of energy. It is the drive behind an event or experience. Rajas is the male aspect of our energy system, of assertion, warmth and the sun. It emanates from the Fire Centre (umbilicus) to encompass the whole of the energy system and it functions to provide the quality of energy for movement, warmth and healing. It governs the distribution of internal vital energy throughout the body.
Water principle Central Or Cerebrospinal Kapha Negative Destructive Shiv Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil Crystallization effect of Sub-conscious mind or earthbound mind, going into sense life entirely and bound thereby. Long Line North-South Tamasic principle is the negative yin phase of energy movement. It is the quality of the contractive, centripetal phase of energy. It is the phase of completion and of receptivity. It is the female aspect of our energy system, of receptivity and of crystallisation into forms. It is formed by currents which pulsate individually from each chakra. They emanate from each centre in specific patterns or current lines. Each current is of the quality of energy most like that of its centre. So the current which arises from the Water Centre is thus called the Water current line. They emanate from each chakra, expand outward in a vertical fashion and then return to the centre in a contractive phase. Their function is to regulate and monitor the physiology of the body.

Heart Sun Fire Face Tongue Solid Yin Blood, Blood Vessels Shen/Seat of Consciousness Heart is that organ, which together with the lung is driving the outer substances into our own ETHERIC organization. Also Sweat originates in the heart. While it remains within the body, it is blood. When it is excreted through the skin, it becomes sweat.

The kidneys communicate with our outside world. Kidney is the source of reproduction, development and muturation. All circulation of water in body depends on the vaporizing power of kidneys. The spleen also vaporizes pure fluids as it raises the pure essences of food and fluids but its vaporization power is dependent on the Kidney fire.
