Posted Dec 14 2010 12:23am
The prakriti of a person may be defined as the totality comprising of his physical attributes, his mental characteristics, and his innate nature. The prakriti, or the basic constitution and temperament, of an individual is believed to be innate and more or less remains the same throughout his or her life span.
According to Ayurveda philosophy, every living body in the universe is believed to be a combination of the three body humors viz. vatta or the air, pitta or the fire and kapha, or the phlegm.
The human prakriti can broadly be categorized into three distinct types. These are vatta prakriti, pitta prakriti, and kapha prakriti.
