Ayurveda identifies three basic functional principles that constitute everyone and everything - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These principles are related to the basic biology of the body. While Vata is the energy of movement, Pitta is the energy of digestion or metabolism and Kapha is the energy of lubrication and structure. Every individual has the qualities of vata, pitta and kapha, but one is usually more dominant energy than the other.

According to Ayurveda, primary cause of diseases is because of lack of proper cellular function due to either lack or excess of vata, pitta and kapha. The Ayurvedic philosophy says that the entire cosmos in an interplay of the energies of the five mighty elements - Air, Water, Fire, Space and Earth. And vata, pitta and kapha are a combination of these elements. Stepping right into the basic concepts of Ayurveda, vata energy is associated with movement that entails space and air. Vata determines breathing, blinking and all muscle movements. When in balance, vata encourages creativity and flexibility, but if vata is out of balance then it generates fear and anxiety. Pitta is responsible for the body's metabolic system. Pitta determines assimilation, digestion, absorption, nutrition, metabolism and body temperature. When pitta is in balance it allows understanding and intelligence, but if pitta is fluctuated then it generates anger and hatred. Kapha element forms the body's structure such as bones, muscles and tendons. Kapha holds the cells together and supplies water to all body parts and systems. When kapha is in balance it promotes love, calmness and forgiveness, but when it's out of balance, it causes attachment and greed.

The Vata, Pitta and Kapha form the 7 Dhatus which are the elements or various organs, systems that constitute the human body. The 7 Dhatus are namely Rasa (Plasma), Rakta (Blood), Mamsa (Muscles), Meda (Fatty Tissues), Asthi (Bones), Majja (Bone Marrow) and Shukra (Sperm, Ovum, Reproductive tissues). Every Dhatu is shaped from the previous Dhatu. Dhatu provides basic nutrition to the body and helps in the growth and structure of the mind. The waste products from each Dhatu are called Malas.

With this we understand the significance of the three functional principles, the seven Dhatus and Malas, and how they contribute to the well-being of a healthy mind, body and soul. This medicinal legacy is now launched in Forte Kochi heritage hotel.
