Vata (Space + Air), Pitta (Water + Fire) and Kapha (Water + Earth) are the doshas that are present in the human body. Kapha dosha occupies the upper part of the body such as head, brain, throat and chest regions. Pitta dosha occupies abdominal region of the human body whereas Vata region occupies the lower abdominal area.
Ayurveda says that these three principal energies are governing the entire cosmos but in the opposite direction.
In the universe, Vata is the energy that is present at the top in the atmosphere with the dominance of space, Pitta energy on the earth with the dominance of fire and Kapha dosha relates to water bodies at the bottom with the dominance of water element.
So, the question is why doshas in human body and in universe are in opposite direction?
