Ayurvedic Description of Human Being

According to Ayurveda, mind creates and maintains the body; vice versa a healthy mind resides in a healthy body.

Life has 3 levels, soul or life force, mind or intellect and the body. It is said that soul lit up the mind and mind extends itself as the body. So, everything in the mind reflects in the body, whether it is health or disease.

In the body, the important elements are Ooja, 3 Dosha, 7 Dhatu and 3 Mala. These are the most basic ones.
