Mala

  

The word 'Mala' means excretal products. As a consequence of foods which we take into our bodies from the external world and the normal biological processes which take place internally, we generate different kinds of waste materials, or malas, which must be excreted. Malas are faeces, urine, sweat, gases, bile, genital secretions, excretions from hair follicle,  body hair and nails. Sustenance of Mala in appropriate limits, sustain the life.

 

Ayurveda generally recognizes two kinds of malas:

  • Ahara mala or wastes from food
  • Dhatu mala or wastes from the tissues

The malas from the tissues:
