“If you do not know who you are, then your knowledge, education and bank account have no value.” - Dr. Vasant Lad
To know your prakrit (your energetic composition at birth) means to know your ratio of vata, pitta and kapha, this is your genetic code from time of fertilisation, which does not change.
This is your state of perfect balance, unique to you.
Ayurveda says normality varies from person to person.
One person’s medicine will be another’s poison.
In our modern world therefore, we see some people get results from one diet, or fitness routine and others do not.
Through the lens of your prakruti we can gain awareness of our physical appearance, appetite, digestion, thirst, physical activity, emotions, intellect, memory, sleep, speech, and even your financial status.
Life is a journey of self-discovery, and this ancient science has helped me understand my body, my mind, and my soul on a very deep level.
Ayurveda is not only a spiritual science, but also a practical, clinical, medical science. Knowing and understanding your prakriti helps you understand what a good diet, exercise and lifestyle works from your constitution. Your prakriti or energetic composition can be diagnosed through your pulse, or through your natal chart.
While you are made up of a ratio of vata, pitta, kapha you will likely be more prominent in one. The doshas are described in detail below.
Changeable, excitable, and indecisive and have good but erratic mental powers.
When out of balance, tends towards fear, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, and exhaustion. It can lead to both physical and energetic depletion, disrupt proper communication, and cause abnormal movements in the body, such as tics, tremors, and muscle spasms.
Great mental energy, imagination, and a highly creative mind.
Vata brings changes in the world (visionary). They have ideas and they like to work and talk. They can excel in art, teaching, marketing, research, communication, writing.
Prone to fiery emotions like irritability and anger. Logical, critical, perceptive, and intelligent.
Efficient, organised and perfectionists with good memory. Their thoughts and ideas are logical and well planned. They are focused, persuasive and dominate conversation.
Fiery, reactionary emotions such as frustration, anger, jealousy, and criticism. Imbalanced pitta is often at the root of inflammatory disorders, which can affect organs and tissues throughout the body.
Pittas are good in decision making, organising, and leading. They can excel as a manager, leader, or a businessperson. They can also excel in the police or army.
Inclined to watery emotions, like love, desire romance and sentimentality. They are kind, considerate and loyal but also slow to respond, conversative, shy and obedient.
Kapha people are loving, caring, compassionate, calm, steady and with tranquil thoughts and ideas.
Emotions of attachment, greed, and possessiveness can also create stubbornness, lethargy, and resistance to change. Physically, it tends to invite stagnation and congestion in organs and tissues throughout the body—including the mind.
Kaphas are loving and compassionate and have high stamina and tolerance. Excel in human service jobs, sports, singing and professions which need physical stamina.
