A guide to the Ayurvedic personality types, or doshas, with psychology-based advice on cultivating balance, from the author of The Ayurvedic Self-Care Handbook At the core of Ayurveda is an understanding that we are all made of the same materials—the five elements of ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth—and how you look, think, and feel can be traced back to your unique proportion of these elements at any given time. This is your dosha, the true essence of who you are. Knowing your dosha is the key to deeper self-knowledge, easier relationships, and a happier future. In The Seven Ways of Ayurveda, you’ll discover which type fits you best. Vata: creator, multitasker, artist Pitta: perfectionist, challenger, leader Kapha: peacemaker, nurturer, lover Vata-Pitta: performer, innovator, first responder Pitta-Kapha: guardian, moralist, observer Vata-Kapha: dreamer, supporter, conversationalist Tri-Dosha: proficient in all trades, well-rounded Then, you’ll identify your innate strengths (and their “shadow sides”); whether you’re out of balance (and what to do); how your unique type approaches work, love, travel, and more; and how to forge true, mutual understanding with friends and loved ones whose doshas may differ. When you know yourself better, you can take better care of yourself—and others, too.

Summarium de 'Yoga is a mantra' We as a modern Society with all the high material and technological achievements are aware of being as if in the Arca Noae. According to the prominant Western Philosophies this temporality of human beings achieved in the form of Physiological, social, cultural, material and religious gives us a sense of our self esteem. A philosophical thought propounded in 'Yoga is a mantra' based on experience and the metaphysical knowledge discovers the matrix of human Existence, Consciousness and its Conditioning. Methodology used for its deconditioning makes this philosophical thought dissimilis not only to achieve awareness for a healthy life but also makes us compassionate towards each other and above all makes us intellegere in our hearts the presence of the Lord/Dominus the creator of all the existence. A Yogin after attempting the way of yoga and its practices; asanas, pranayama, meditation and insuper the practices of Kashmiri yoga i.e. awakening of Kundalini which deals with the Consciousness 'Shiva' -as a man and 'Shakti' -as an embrio of a beautiful woman. Their cognitio sanctified in the midway between the 'Muladhara chakra' and the 'Sahasrara chakra' is an austerus technique no doubt but only justified by a Brahmin. It is a union different than achieved by the practices of Astanga yoga with the Infinitus. The ascetic technique of Kashmiri yoga is a process of transformation of the human body into a cosmic body in which the energy chakras and the veins play a consderable role profecto it can be experienced though difficult. This is the semita leading to extremus libertas.
