Pitta fuels the need to know.
It makes us restless.
We feel like digging.
We can’t rest, till we know…
This is a very vital sequence.
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.
