Abstract

The universe is called Pancabhautic. It simply means that everything in this universe is derived from these five basic elements. As it is the embodiment of the universe, everything which exists in the universe (Bramhanda) must be presented in the body (Pinda). In Samkhya Philosophy Panchamahabhutas are included under sixteen Vikaras (final products). According to Vaisheshika Philosophy, grossness appears in Bhutas in the stage of Trisarenu and they are called Mahabhutas. Ayurveda itself says human body is made up of Panchbhautik Sanghatana (Akasha, Agni, Vayu, Jala and Prithavi). Ayurveda emphasis on that development and maintenance of the body is done through the healthy lifestyles and diet (Ahara) etc. Ahara itself is Panchbhautic in nature. In this review utility of Panchmabhuta is elaborated in the context of Ayurvedic relevance.
