    February 11, 2019 1 min read

    A tree, stump and a human finger print. Ayurveda is firmly embedded in Indian philosophy and it beliefs that the five elements comprise the universe (the panchamahabhutas).

    1.Space / ether
    2. Air
    3. Fire
    4. Water
    5. Earth

    These five elements (Panchamahabhutas) are present in all things from a stone or a tree to a human (in different combinations of the five elements). These are the building blocks of all visible and invisible matter in the universe. 

    ‘An individual is an epitome of the universe as all the material and spiritual phenomena of the universe are present in the individual and all those present in the individual are also contained in the universe. CS Sha 5/3.
