Holy Trinity Leads Us to Health

Pitta fuels the need to know.

It makes us restless.

We feel like digging.

We can’t rest, till we know…

…the truth.

This is a very vital sequence.

Why?

Because when we know the truth, we are very likely to act differently.

Therein, also, lies the secret of health.

The sheer act of choosing and adhering to healthy habits based upon truth makes for a person in good health.

On the ground, mostly, what happens is this.

We might know of a truth, but it hasn’t yet ingrained itself.

Ingraining is also done by Pitta, as it rams DNA with the truth, and keeps ramming it till the DNA incorporates this information.

For this, an ample stream of Pitta needs to flow pinpointedly in the required direction, with the required force, till the deed is done. Obstinacy, even to to stick to a regimen, is the domain of Kapha.

And, it is Vata that makes Pitta flow.

Kapha the Sentimental

Kapha is Earth. Earth is substance.

Kapha provides staunchness. At times it is obstinate. It knows a thing or two about staying its ground.

Kapha gives structure. 

It is watery emotion. On the flip side, Kapha lusts.

Kapha is reliable.

It know loyalty. 

Kapha is shy. It has friends, though. 

Kapha preserves. It brings together.

Kapha is bulk. It can be block-headed. Kapha is dull.

Mostly, though, it shows compassion. It is sympathetic towards the pain of others. Kapha is soft and wet. It is also cold. 

Kapha is modest. It listens to elders. 

Kapha lubricatres. 

Let it get too comfortable, and it will set up camp, to coolly enjoy your comfortable hospitality, possibly forever, without wanting to move a limb.

Kapha needs to be kept on its toes, so it can become slim and trim. Kapha has a tendency to put on. Kapha nourishes. 

Kapha loves being pampered. Cut the pampering to wake Kapha up to life. 

Kapha doesn’t forget. It is quite like the elephant, isn’t it? Moves slowly. Comes down with a bang when enraged beyond control, though this is a once in a blue-moon thingie. Slow to activate. 

Kapha prepares its playing field well. It then needs activation to start playing. Once activated, there’s no stopping the roll of Kapha. Unless its out of breath and stops for a bite.

Kapha likes to accumulate. Greed lurks.

Kapha is steady. 

Kapha doesn’t like change. Adaptation to new surroundings is an issue. Kapha likes to dig in, and finds it strenuous and compelling to check out. 

Kapha is happy at home, the nostalgic fellow.
