| Discovering Myself in My Dosha |
Going a little deeper in learning what forces keep each dosha alive requires a closer look at the properties that make up each dosha, as well as how each one is reflected in the earth. Because doshas are not only expressed in the human body, but throughout all of creation, it’s important to see how they interact with our environmental surroundings to get a better idea of how they will interact with our bodies. Below details how each dosha is represented throughout the earth- sort of like their “elemental properties.”
Kapha (oily skin) represents earth and water, which mostly affects our ability to taste and smell.
Pitta (sensitive skin) represents fire and water, which mostly affects our ability to see and taste.
Vata (dry skin) represents air and space, which mostly affects our ability to touch and hear.
