Too Much And Not Enough

Recommended Posts

Guest Petra S

Hi,

 

I've been browsing a little bit through the Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine sites and I don't understand some things. What do hot or cold sicknesses mean? Does it mean that a body-mind system is working too intensively or too faintly? Why does a system or an organ start to overwork or underwork? :dontknow: I'm interested about it from the point of view of mind - how are the activities of our mind connected to these energy processes?

 

I read that among the three humours (doshas/nyipa sum), the Bile (Pitta/Tripa) is connected to heat and the Phlegm (Kapha/Beygen) to cold. The “mysterious†Wind (Vata/Lung) is told to be either neutral or changing from cold to hot or controlling or aggravating the other two humours. They say the Wind is at the root of all diseases, like ignorance is at the root of afflictive emotions. How can then the wind energy function properly, while a person has impeded functions of bile or phlegm?

 

I'm looking forward to an answer, because the topic seems extremely interesting! :)) Ups, I hope I'm not starting some overactive processes by my excitement. :D

 

Bye,

Petra

Another question: in the glossary I found three definitions of lung. Now I wonder if lung in the sense of imbalance caused by improperly performed meditation is the same as lung in the sense of imbalance of the wind humour? This similarity is confusing me.

 

Bye, Petra
