Doshas in action
According to Ayurveda, the actions of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas in the body are similar to air, sun, and moon’s effects on the universe.
Air is the representative of Vata. These both have a similar act of “Vikshepa.”
Vikshepa means to move. Vata here is responsible for all body actions like taking a breath and blood circulation. Similarly, air does all the movements in the universe.
Sun is the representative of Pitta. They both have the action of “Aadan.”
Aadan means to transform. Pitta is responsible for digesting and transforming food into energy within the body. Similarly, the sun absorbs and transforms energy into the universe.
Moon is the representative of Kapha. They have the action of “Visarga.”
Visarga means to nourish. Kapha is responsible for the nourishing and endurance of the body. Similarly, the moon nourishes the universe.
Doshas play an essential role in your body and are responsible for your health and illness. Eating the right kind of food that help you balance your dosha helps to maintain your health and even cure the disease. On the other hand, indulging more in food items that can aggravate your dominant dosha can cause illness. So, it is essential to understand Doshas and their effect on your body for better health.
