The basis for all creation, including the physical body, is the group of five elements: earth, water, wind, fire and space. The wellbeing of the body and mind can be established by purifying these five elements within the human system. This process also shapes the body into a stepping-stone towards one’s ultimate wellbeing.
There is a whole system of yoga called ‘Bhuta Shuddhi’ which means ‘purification of the elements’. The Bhuta Shuddhi processes provide a unique opportunity for everyone to benefit from this esoteric yogic science, which otherwise requires intense sadhana (spiritual practices).
