Esoteric science studies five fundamental elements in nature, which are manifestations of more subtle energetic sources called tattvas.

  • 1. ether (related to the tattva akash)
  • 2. fire (related to the tattva tejas)
  • 3. air (related to the tattva vayu)
  • 4. water (related to the tattva apas)
  • 5. earth (related to the tattva prithvi)

"From Atman did space [akash] come into being; 
from space, air; 
from air, fire; 
from fire, the waters, 
from the waters, the earth; 
from the earth, plants; 
from plants, food; 
and from food, man..." - Hinduism: Taittirīya Upaniṣhad

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"The most elevated form of thinking is non-thinking. When one achieves the stillness and silence of the mind, the “I” with all its passions, dens, appetites, fears, affections, etc. becomes absent. It is only in the absence of the “I,” in the absence of the mind, that the Buddhata can awaken to unite with the Inner Self and take us to ecstasy."
