Bhūta Vidya

About Bhūta Vidya

Bhūta vidya is the balancing of our body, mind, senses and consciousness and it can be understood as the knowledge of the five elements that constitute us – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Bhūta or the pancha (five) maha (great) bhūtas (elements) in Sanskrit refers to the five primary states of matter – agni (fire), vāyu (air), jala (water), ākāśa (ether) and pṛthvī (earth). They are the prima materia of everything in the cosmos. In Vedic thought, the combination of the five elements gives rise to multiple and unique variations of infinite forms in the universe including our body-mind. We can develop vidya or knowledge of the bhūtas that constitute us energetically by balancing them through Āyurveda, Jyotiṣa and psyche-therapy or all three. When one balances the panchmahābhūtas, one directs oneself to a state of harmony and wholesomeness – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
