The ancient wisdom of yoga offers profound insights into the nature of human existence. One such insight revolves around the concept of the five elements - fire, water, earth, air, and space. These elements, according to yogic philosophy, are not only the building blocks of the universe but also the fundamental components of our physical and mental existence.

The human body, as per this philosophy, is a complex interplay of these five elements. Water, for instance, makes up 72% of our body. This element, as per yogic teachings, has a strong sense of memory. The way we treat water, therefore, can significantly impact our well-being. The same applies to the other elements. The air we breathe, the food we eat, and the earth we walk upon - all have a profound impact on our physical and mental health.

Fire, another crucial element, exists within us in five dimensions - reproductive fire, digestive fire, mental fire, heart fire, and ether fire. Mastering these fires can lead to a higher state of being. The Sadguru suggests that with a little effort, one can easily work on the reproductive fire, the digestive fire, and the mental fire. The other two, however, require more discipline and effort.

The Sadguru also delves into the concept of karma, suggesting that our individual selves are essentially a certain volume of information. This information is attached to us through the elements. Cleansing the elements within us can help free us from the accumulated information or karmic substance, leading to a state of liberation.

The Sadguru emphasizes the importance of bringing consciousness to how these four elements are becoming the human body. This consciousness, according to the speaker, can lead to a transformation that is not just temporary but permanent. This is the essence of 'Buddha Shuddhi', a yogic practice that involves cleansing the elements.

The Sadguru also discusses the significance of rituals in this context. Rituals, according to the speaker, can be beneficial for those who are not willing to do 'sadhana' or spiritual practices. These rituals can be conducted by others, and one can simply sit in their presence and benefit from them.

The Sadguru concludes by urging listeners to approach the five elements with reverence and gratitude. He suggests that simply acknowledging the life-making ingredients - the earth we walk upon, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat - can greatly enhance our health, stability, and sense of well-being.

In conclusion, the yogic perspective on the five elements offers a profound understanding of our existence and well-being. It suggests that by mastering these elements and by bringing consciousness to our physical and mental processes, we can live a more fulfilling and 'magical' life.
