Ayurveda is the ‘science of life’, the traditional medicine system of India. It focuses on gently restoring balance, bringing ourselves back into harmony, by living in accordance with nature – both with the world around us and with our own nature.
According to Ayurveda, there are three universal qualities that comprise everything in nature including within our minds, bodies, our experiences, lifestyle and the food we ingest.
These qualities (Sattva, Rajas and Tamas) have a direct effect on our inner peace, as they influence our physical behavior, mental health and emotional balance. A healthy balance of all three is required for wellness.
Sattva – Sattva is the quality of stability, wisdom, intelligence, harmony and virtue. It is said to be luminous and light in nature and to promote awakening, clarity, peace, truth and happiness.
Rajas – Rajas is the quality of movement, energy, motivation and activity, but also of distraction and turbulence. It has a fiery quality.
Tamas – is the quality of heaviness, inertia, dullness and darkness. It can promote groundedness, but also causes degeneration and decay.
