Tattwq dragged me, albeit belatedly, into the twenty-first century, with a crash course in computers.

Without the support of Carl and Sandra while I was in the U. It is with great pleasure that I consign this foundation work to generations of future students. Some will research this material further than I have dreamt, thus perpetuating the tradition self-developjent posterity. His concepts included the “Five Element” theories and predated Aristotle and Plato. Kapila’s philosophy is known as Samkhya and it became one of the six schools of classical Indian philosophy.

Traces of Samkhya philosophy emerge in such modem schools as the Rosicrucians, Gurdjief groups, and Masonry. Pure, undifferentiated consciousness Syste, has always existed. Consciousness was without beginning, and therefore without end, eternally radiating through limitless reaches of space and eons of time. Self-deevlopment Prakrit, in Tantra. I will use as few Sanskrit words as possible. So far I have ignored twenty other ingredients.

Existence divides into two coexistent principles: Consciousness Purusha and Energy Prakrit. Consciousness and Energy are codependent because Consciousness is sterile, or lame, and Energy is blind. Energy always implies Matter, which is what Energy becomes when it hattwa its dynamism.

Mind is not consciousness but merely energy, and therefore a rarefied sub-category of matter. Energy has to condense out of itself five Elements that act as the building blocks of all material manifestation, in various permutations and combinations. Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth. TIlis is not the Periodic Table of Elements of western physics and chemistry, tatwta gaps, but a classification of matter by its state.

We will distinguish between these two by an initial capital in the case of magicao Element that is a “state of matter. Ether is the container of all states of matter and the source of their creation. Air is all gaseous manifestations. Fire is incandescent, incendiary, all thermal states. Water is the principle of fluidity, liquidity, flowing substances. Earth is anything demonstrating solidarity and cohesiveness.


These five Elements are collectively called Tattwas, or those things possessed of “thatness.

My Ayurvedic teacher, Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati, has aligned the five Elements with the “forces” of western physics: Ether Every substance in the world is made up of five elements and requires the five elements for its growth, e.

Such an analogy is reminiscent of the biologists’ water Cycle and also encompasses the ecosphere living space of the planet earth, which we treat like dirt. The fifth Element, Ether comparable with the European alchemists Quintessenceis symbolized by a black or indigo oval. Its manifestation is sound vibration Shabdayet it is not sound. Neither Ether nor Quintessence are exact equivalents to Akasha.

The fourth Element is symbolized by a circle endless motion and is the Tattwa of Anahata chakra.

Vayu is the principle of movement and comes from the Sanskrit root meaning “to blow. Its sensory avenue is touch Sparsa and it carries the sound from Ether, therefore Vayu can be heard and felt. The third Element is symbolized by a red triangle, or tetrahedron.

Tejas comes from the Sanskrit root meaning “sharp,” i. It holds the atoms of form or shape Rupa and therefore can be seen, felt and heard; you can “see” the fire, “feel” the heat of its flames, and “hear” the crackling of the combustion. This is the second Element symbolized by a silver crescent and related to Swadhisthana chakra psychic center below the navel.

In the body, Apas rules from the knees to the hips. Consider the tongue which cannot have its gustation taste buds receptors fire without saliva or fluid present in the mouth. Water can be heard, felt, seen, and tasted. It is associated with Muladhara chakra psychic center located on the pelvic floor and characterized by cohesion and solidarity. To understand how each gross Element is compounded with the subtle Tanmatras, or sensory Elements, we could make a diagram like the one on page They appear neither simultaneously nor in random order.

First, sound is originated. Each succeeding element retains the quality or qualities of the preceding ones. This means that the later the appearance, the more qualities a subtle primary element has.

Accordingly, sound has the solitary quality of sound. Touch possesses two qualities: In their pure states they have not yet become the smallest particle of matter, known as paramnus.

Therefore, they should not be confused with the chemical elements known to modem science. The Samkbya scheme permits a totally coherent and consistent world view which explains the phenomenal universe. The system works well from an Indian perspective, in which the idea of cooperating with nature takes precedence over the Western idea of conquering nature.


Gross Tattwas with their Subtle Tanmatras 0 0 iouc: Then one-half of each element is further split into four equal parts and added to the undivided half of each remaining element.

Five Element Tattwa Chart: Some brief comments follow about the terminology I have preferred to use, the colors of the Tattwas, and the geometrical shapes ascribed to the elements. The first rule I set myself is to discard Sanskrit terms as much as possible. The only Sanskrit term retained is “Tattwa,” as this word has become inextricably attached to the elements through common usage. My choice of “Ether” deserves a comment. Llewellyn Publisher Carl Weschcke has drawn my attention to the older, alternative spellings, which include Aether and Athyr.

Spirit is also used, as is Quintessence, i. None of these terms fully conveys the concept of Akasha. In discussing the colors and geometrical figures used by the Hindus to designate the Tattwas a good place to start might be with the Western tradition and current practice.

Some have claimed that the signs for the elements are derived from the six-pointed star hexagram or Star of David. The hexagram certainly has nothing to do with Judaism and early Kabbalistic studies, as it did not become associated with the Jewish people until the seventeenth century. The Star was adopted by the Zionist organization in The hexagram is found extensively in Indian temples and Islamic mosques. It is used in Christian and Hermetic Kabbalism as a symbol for the seven planets, as shown on page 1 6.

In India, the Hexagram is often associated with Vishnu, the preserver, and the triangle pointing down is a symbol of Prakrit, the universal Yoni, and all material creation. The triangle pointing up is Purusha, the silent consciousness behind existence. The Shat Kana Sk. The Hermetic alchemical symbols for the Elements are formed by the two triangles being pulled apart: In the Middle Ages you belonged in one of four categories: Airy, social, optimistic, flighty, and fanciful.

Impulsive, hot-tempered, person of action. Depressed and given to intellectual pursuits. And of the heat of the ginger. It is a beast for Perseus: He is pure air and fire; and the dull elements of earth and water never appear in him, but only in patient stillness while his rider mounts him; he is indeed a horse; and all other jades you may call beasts. Both these authors have proliferated the humoral Aristotelian approach among Christian groups, even retaining the original terms of Sanguine, Choleric, Phlegmatic, and Melancholic.

The Indian physicians also started with a Four Element classification, but quickly found it more useful to compress it to a triple classification that would include Ether.

To manage this they amalgamated the Phlegmatic Water and Melancholic Earth into one group called Kapha.
