12 Feb 2022 HYN Himalayan Yoga Academy
Introduction of Nature:
Nature is formed of panchamahaabhoota which is a platform of these five elements. On this platform, matter and energy are existed that means one by one creation was appeared in this world/universe. Each beings and matters took same qualities and nature of Panchatattva. We are born in nature, cared, protected and collapsed by nature. Srishti (Creation), Sthiti (Operation) and Pralaya (Destruction) are the fundamentals rules of Nature or the Adrishya Shakti (unseen Energy / divine power). Nature creates, saves and makes us sick as well as and ultimately treats, heals, promotes, and rejuvenates us. This is the cycle of nature and beings. Nature is a healer and gives healing to us. She has the great power by which every creature is being benefited. Naturally we like the nature, we love the nature, we enjoy in nature, and we feel fresh and energetic. We are able to gain the spiritual power in nature. So use of five elements of nature cure differently in treatment and healing process is very effective and natural process.
Panchatattva and Their Origin :
It is said that before creation took place, there was nothing except the supreme power or cosmic intelligence. In the beginning, firstly Aakaasha tattva (Ether) element with its subtle form ‘Shabda’ (Sound) was appeared by the power of supreme soul; later Vaayu Tattva (air element) with its subtle form ‘Sparsha’ (Touch) was appeared; then Agni tattva ( Fire Element) with its subtle form ‘Rupa’ (Form); then Jala Tattva ( Water) element with its subtle form ‘Rasa’ ( Juice/drop); then Prithivi Tattva (Earth ) element with its subtle form ‘Gandha’ (Smell). Each element takes the quality of previous element which is given below.

Vaayu (Air) Sparsha (Touch) + Sound
Agni (Fire) Rupa (Form) + Touch + Sound
Jala (Water) Rasa (Juice) + Form + Touch + Sound
