' The principle of Stability'

 

This biological element is derived from the combination of Jala (water) and Prithvi (earth) element. It is heavy, stable, smooth, soft, slimy, viscous and moist in nature. Due to its slimy, viscid and unctuous character it is responsible for giving compactness to the body.

3.      Maintenance of body fluid.

4.      All the anabolic process including growth and development of the body.
