What is Dosha and how it is important for The Human Body

Image

VIJÑĀNA- translated to English as Consciousness, Mind, Life Force, Discernment.

From our own Soul appears vijñāna of the organs.

From Earth – the meat, bones, nose and smell

from Water-blood, the tongue, the sense of taste and moisture

from Fire – the warmth, color, eyes and vision

from Air – the breath, skin and touch

from Space – the openings, ears, the voice, from previous habits-ability for actions. The concourse of these conditions and cause and effect ties, forms the Body.

Chzud-Shi

The ancient Ayurvedic healers, Tibetan, Central Asians, even the Europeans – never started the treatment without determining first the Individual Constitution of the patient. All of them unanimously claim that the Physical Human’s Body is build from 5 elements :

1. Ether (Space)

2. Air

3. Fire

4. Water

5. Earth

So according to the ancient healers and the hypotheses of the modern scientist :

The Element Ether or Space is introduced in the body in the nose, the space in the mouth, in the gastrointestinal tract, in the respiratory ways, the rib cage, capillaries and e.x. The Ether gives the body space for development.

Everything that moves inside the body is governed by the second Element – Air-the movement of the muscles, pulsation of the heart, the expansion and contraction of lungs, the movement of the gastrointestinal tract and the stomach, the nerve impulses, the mental activity.

The Element of Fire inside the Human Body is the metabolism. This Element acts in the digestive system, shows like intellect in the gray matter of the brain cells, is active in the eye’s retina, perceiving the light. The stability of your immune system depends of this Element as well as the activity of the enzymes ( which are responsible for transforming one substances to others).

The Element Water shows in the secretion of the stomach juice, the salivary glands, the blood plasma, the cytoplasm of cells.

The Element of Earth represents the “hard” bodily structures — bones, joints, nails, hair, tendons, muscles and skin.

All 5 Elements are represented in 5 human senses, and through the organs they are connected to the 5 activities:

1.The Ether is associated with the function of hearing. The ear, as the organ of hearing, expresses action through the organ of speech, which gives meaning to human language.

2. Air is related to the sense of touch. The organ is the skin. The hand is transmitting the sense of touch.

3. Fire manifests as heat, light and color — it is connected to the vision. The eye, as the organ of vision, is ruling the walking and its connected to the feet.

4. Water is associated with the organs of taste. The tongue is closely related to the functions of the genitalia (penis, clitoris). In Ayurveda the penis/clitoris is believed to be the “lower tongue,” and the tongue in the mouth — “the higher tongue”. The man in control of his “higher tongue” naturally controls his “lower tongue” or his sexual behavior.

5. Earth is associated with the sense of smell. The nose, the organ of smell, is functionally connected with the work of the anus, the organ of elimination. It is clearly visible in a person that suffers from constipation — his breath is unpleasant as a result, his sense of smell is blunted.

Naturally, the Human Body, as a live organism, can exist only as mutually equilibrated system of 5 Elements. The ancient wise man, explain the phenomena of life by dividing all vital expressions in the organism in three basic vital principles.

– The Elements of Ether and Air, connecting, create “the wind inside your body”-the Ayurvedic term is Dosha Vata.

– The Elements water and Fire create in our body “the bile” or ” the fire in our body” – In Ayurveda – Dosha Pitta.

– The Elements of Earth and Water when connect create in the body “mucus” – Dosha Kapha.

Using only this concepts it is simple to describe the Individual Constitution of the man. Those three Most Important Vital Principles : Dosha Vata, Dosha Pitta and Dosha Kapha –  give us  clear localization of ” The Wind, The Bile and The Mucus” in Human Body.

 

Mental – Psychological Health

Mental Health is more than just an absence of psychological symptoms or fitting within some statistical norms. It is being in harmony with your physical environment, family, colleagues, friends and one’s inner-self or spirituality. When we describe issues in those areas, we use the terms psychological and mental interchangeably. These terms are often perceived differently from different people and can determine how an individual is treated.

Our society holds the prejudices that psychological problems are results of environmental factors or social circumstances and mental challenges on the other hand are seen as genetic faults or individual weaknesses. This puts stress/blame on the individual and points to inner responsibility for the problem. Farther more it suggests chronic state that is constant and cannot be “cured or improved”, just controlled, readily with medications.

 

Cautious is required when we categorize people for research and insurance purposes, but let us remember that the DSM is not a sacred text and it is meant to help in making treatment decisions, but not to dictate them. Approaching this issue asks for sensitivity, meeting the individual where he is, respecting of each person’s uniqueness, individuality and culture.

Identifying psychological challenges, the clinician examines the social environment that is affecting the patient and builds his hypothesis on the socio-personal model. The treatment is based than on correcting, improving, or integrating missing skills in the family system, or any other existential area – friends, colleagues, or inner self. Mental problems are identified by observation of symptoms and experiences that culminate in the psychiatric diagnosis.

The facts:

  1. Every one’s well-being is affected by the harmful influence of the environment. Social, moral, political, changes and distress in the society are often at the root of the “symptoms” and do not have individual solutions and are outside of the individuals control.
  2. The researches expose that the individual is better able to make positive changes in himself and his environment when he understands that there is nothing inherently wrong with him. The change is initiated when the symptoms are re-framed or not placed at all in the frame of “pathology”.
  3. A “therapeutic” relationship can be established only when the individual realizes his personal power, strengthened by the equal respect. This is achieved by actively involving the person in defining the challenges and conceptualizing the treatment strategy.
  4. The individual regains his power when his values and his views of the world are given priority.
  5. Meditation, yoga and variety of relaxation techniques are showing remarkable results in influencing the biochemistry and work of the brain and the whole body.
  6. The Bio-Psycho-Social model is commonly accepted today, but there are many areas of research that require reconsideration, dialog in regards to the focus and the nature of change and direction we want to go.

Our own personal experiences and thousands of clinical observations convince us that the traditional academic theories fail to answer basic questions about our psyche or soul and human consciousness. The main consequence from that is that many states or “disorders” accepted by the modern psychiatry as pathology, and treated with suppressive medications, in reality are “psychological/spiritual complications”, soul’s crisis, that holds healing and transformational potential, when used and guided accordingly.

The research of the nature and origin of consciousness and the dimensions of the human psyche/soul crashes the common myth of the materialistic science that consciousness is epiphenomenon of matter, product of neurophysiologic processes, happening in the brain. The research reveals that consciousness is the original undivided property of the living, able to perform variety of actions, which the brain itself cannot complete. According to these modern researches, human consciousness is implicated and is part of the absolute field of universal consciousness, sustaining all that is.

The established academic psychology and psychiatry use the model of the psyche/soul, which is limited by the biology, the biography after birth, and the Freudian individual unconsciousness. However, if we really want to explain all of the phenomenon of the consciousness, our understanding of human psyche/soul should be deepened and expanded.

Mental or psychological symptoms or simply any emotional discomfort is just a response to our imbalanced understanding of our inner and outer environment.  Every one can easily identify, in his own context, which social messages and pressures are contributing to the symptoms or problems. When we silence the outer noise, we all can hear our inside voice, our true inner self, which if given a chance will grow stronger, clearer, louder, giving us confidence and guidance in our path to balance/happiness.

 

Being Balanced/Healthy

All ancient scripts from around the world provide guidance and suggestions on how to keep our bodies healthy. Happiness is revealed as a natural state of being in response to healthy living.   We already know that our body is a sophisticated device; lets investigate what keeps it full of energy and life.

Our “soul level or body” is strengthened by everything positive we experience – from the miracle of a newborn life to the delightful observation of a gorgeous flower. The focus on the beauty of Life, on the amazing wonders of Nature gives us the highest feelings of admiration. Realizing and being part of the Universal harmony and Perfection fills our beings with love and gratitude.

Our “conscious level or body” is maintained by our creativity and constructive aim. According to Carl Jung, human beings are able to tap into the “Collective unconsciousness” or the unconscious mind. He believed that this is the source of art and it is the deep memory of human kind. Transpersonal psychologists see direct connection between the individual development and the evolution of human kind. The fetus progresses through a single-celled organism to a multicellular organism, fish, amphibian, animal, taking finally human form. The followers of the transpersonal psychology find answers beyond the individual memories after the birth event. Experiments point out that on a deep level, there is undoubtful connection between people, connection that cannot be explained if limited only to the knowledge of the afterbirth individual biography.

This level of consciousness is not only a deep source of memories and life paths, it is an engine that powers our ambitions and makes our goals come true. The role of the environment on this level is huge. The scientist know that the frog egg that falls on the algae  will develop into frog, but the one that falls on the bottom, will give live to the algae. Environment determines the dysfunctions in the conscious level. Miraculous recoveries from deadly illnesses show the unlimited possibilities of our conscious level, when we focus and align ourselves with the Universal balance.

Our “thought level or body” is strengthened by the absence of strong emotions and stress. Relaxation, meditation, sleep, spending time with friends and loved ones, visiting beautiful places and healthy diet sustain this level.

Our “subtle body or plasma level” is connected with our breathing, energy and biofields.  Active lifestyle – outdoor activities, (energy exchange with the Earth and all living), moving is direct interaction with the energy, which is charging us. Consistence and systematically increasing the intensity of the exercises create strong subtle body. It should become a lifestyle, because it quickly dissipates if not charged.

Our “physical body or level” is maintained by everything that makes strong the rest of the levels. Food has critical part – the quality of eating – following the physiological mechanisms of digestion and absorption.

This is a simplistic take on the sophisticated mechanism, which is the physical body. It 99 % of the mass is from the following biogenic elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, calcium, nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, sodium. The slightest change (especially oxygen) in their intertwinement leads to imbalances in the body and susceptibility to illness.

It is obvious that in order to possess absolute health, all levels of the human body should be kept operating properly. One of the reasons why medications do not work is because they target only the physical body and leaving residue in the organs, interfering even farther with the natural balance of the body, the diseases develop into a chronic illness. Positive attitude towards life is not only something we may accept or not – it is required for a long healthy living. Honest, clean thoughts, combined with a noble goals and aspirations, being close to our natural environment – Nature and all living, will give us the most precious gift – healthy, fulfilling life.

THE SACRED DEVICE OF HUMAN BODY

“We must understand what a human being is, what life is, what health is, and how the balance of its forces supports it and the unsteadiness destroys it.”  Leonardo da Vinci

 

Let us follow the example of our ancient wise man and investigate what makes the basics of our bodies?

It is known for a long time now that the chromosome is the carrier of our genes. We also discovered how exactly this information is recorded. French biologists revealed that the chromosome’s information is “recorded” in a multidimensional holographic code, reflecting the space-time structure of the organism. Laser’s radiation can copy the information of the organism’s state in a certain moment and compare it with the information, existing in our genetic apparatus in the form of many holograms.

What are holograms? For example, we are going to look at a vase. You break it in many small pieces. If we make a hologram of the smallest piece, we are going to see a 3-D image of the whole vase, woven of light. The same way is made a holographic copy of our whole body, our sex, our organs, their form and functions, and also every cell in our body and its function. On the other hand, the image reflected from our body, organs, cells and their functions, is mirrored back and compared with the reference.  If there is any difference (which is always the case, ranging around some middle “line”), than certain corrective mechanisms are turned on: hormonal, humoral and other. All cells in our bodies, besides their specific function, perform other functions too – synthesis of the most important inter-regulatory substances – prostaglandins, chalones and others.  The holographic copy of the body’s information and its reflected back correction are the basics of the homeostasis (system that regulates the internal environment of the body), homeorezis (the proper speed of physiological functions in the body) and homeomorphosis (the ability of the internal organs to maintain constant form, mass and limits). Now it is easier to understand the principle of “Matryoshka doll” or onion layers or sheets – how the holographic picture of the human body transitions from “thin” radiant , to” thick” the physical, material one. This approach can be found in the Buddhist philosophy or psychology and not surprisingly in all ancient scripts, slightly modified by the time, language, culture and tradition.

 

  1. “The first doll” – sheet or level is the physical body. Here are the bones, skin, fluids, tendons, muscles and other, all the material fabric that can be seen and touched. According to the Buddhists classification, this body level is called “the shell built with food” (an-na-maya-kosha)
  2. The second level or layer is the plasma or subtle body. This body was photographed long ago with the Kirlian photography. This technique is known since 1880s and is still a subject of a scientific research. Different fields of study use their own specific terminology – aura, energy, prana, bio field, life force, qi, reiki, stochastic electric ionization, electromagnetic fields and so forth. Here are the energetic channels, chakras, nadi, which are the energy system of our body. This body penetrates the physical body and depending on how strong it is, expands beyond the physical body. According to the Buddhist classification, this body is called Prana body (prana-maya-kosha). This level of the body is maintained by the human breath.
  3.  The third level is the holographic body. This body builds the physical one and controls the subtle or plasma body. The Buddhists call it “The body of the thought” (mano-maya-kosha). This body is finer than the first two. Our own thinking, depending on the emotions we experience, can create great ranges in this body.
  4. The fourth level is the body of consciousness. (vijniana-maya-kosha) is the base of the creation of the chromosomes. Lama Anagarica Govinda explains that the body of thought, the physical and the subtle bodies are pierced and moved by even more deep past experience consciousness, the source of our thoughts and imagination. This is our deep consciousness or unconsciousness.
  5. The fifth level is the soul body. (ananda-maya-kosha). The Buddhists explain that this body is the center of our self, our inner power and is beyond all definitions. The soul body is the body of the universal consciousness, maintained by joyful and blissful feelings. It can be experienced in meditation.

 

Hardly a day goes by when questions concerning the soul’s existence do not enter the political, moral and spiritual scenes. Sometimes we avoid talking about that not to upset the closed minds. The soul is not an easy subject to deal with either scientifically or spiritually. Nevertheless, today more than ever our society needs a new, fresh, scientific view of the soul. How can we move forward issues like abortion, the right to prolong life, death penalty, children born with lifetime disabilities, without understanding the soul and profound knowledge of the human body?

We know that we actually have more than one body in addition to our soul. Looks like there is a lot of exploring still. One body to take care of was enough responsibility, now we have to take care of five. Luckily, we already discovered the true nature of time – it is relative to human consciousness. It is influenced, stretched and contracted by human imagination. We can never be late. As an enlightened human being, You can be the master of this tool called time, not the slave of it.

Psychology or Spirituality?

Psychologists explore different spheres of human activities – from obvious human behavior to hidden emotions, and cognition. The word Psychology originates from the Greek “Psyche” – meaning mind, soul, spirit, breath, and “Logos”- meaning study, research. “Study of the soul, spirit”. It is safe to say that psychology is concerned with the human being and everything that comes with it. Spirituality is much broader than the concept of religion, which is focused on prescribed beliefs and rituals. Spirituality is our need to search for significance and connection with others and the transcendent force of the Universe. Many are helped to discover their spirituality through the guidance of religion, but many others have allowed unpleasant experiences with religion to cause them to neglect their spiritual development. This development emphasizes humanistic ideas on qualities such as love, compassion, tolerance, patience, forgiveness, responsibility, harmony, contentment and concern for others. These spiritual values or psychological needs are as important as the satisfaction of our thirst, hunger, and sexual yearnings. I believe we are all born spiritual psychologists in our minds and hearts. Without exception, we all want to understand our own life, the everyday issues of love, loneliness, suffering and death. We strive for harmony and meaning. We recognize that the human species is just one of more than a million species in the world. Our time on Earth is limited as with other living creatures. Life is a voyage to Death, no matter what one’s race, religion or social standing. We all are heading toward the same inevitable place. Each of us is confronted with social environment that leaves us frustrated and plagued by unjust laws and social barriers. Psychology helps us to focus on forces inside us that we can become aware of and control eventually. Let us remind ourselves that not everything in Life is controllable and not all of Life’s questions are answerable. Uncertainty, mystery, and suffering are our eternal companions. The Miracle of self-reflection, the realization of Life’s totality, not merely one’s patterns of unconscious conflicts, or thoughts and feelings, happens when we open up and share, equally amerced in the search for answers. Equally vulnerable. “All is flux, nothing remains the same, nothing endures but change.” So wrote the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Openness to change is essential for our wellbeing. Nature’s gift is our ability to be flexible, to change gracefully, to modify habitual behaviors and to grow. Every character is capable of intellectual, emotional or spiritual evolution. One encouraging truth about the turbulent times in which we live is that – Nobody knows what to do next. This makes us more equal than we have ever been before. Curiously enough, the beauty is that you never know from what direction the answers will come, so pay kind attention to everyone you meet along the way.
