    The element of Ether: Sanskrit - आकाश Akash.

    What sounds ?? music ? and conversation are you taking in? Ayurveda speaks about Akash, or the Ether element, being directly related to sound ? As Ether is the most subtle element, we can experience the immediate impact that sound has on our being.


    Sound is carried into the microscopic channels of our bodies and mind ? Therefore it is understood the deep impact that sound has on our body, mind and spirit and filling the space with positive sound and vibrations can impact us on a deep level.


    Ether manifests as clarity, lightness, the microscopic channels, can manifest as anger, sorrow and fear. The gurvadi gunas, the qualities of Akash, include clear, light, subtle, soft and immeasurable.


    Which sounds do you choose to listen to? Today I am relaxing in the garden space at the Lakshmi Ayurveda retreat listening to the rain fall. Meditating in the peaceful ambiance ?
