Our whole cosmic quest of the world and beyond starts from the point of panchabhuta (five elements) which then manifests in an enjoining manner to form the life force and then, later, those five elements disintegrates to ensure a celestial traverse at the Paramanu (atom) level.
However, we will first try to understand these five elements which are Earth or Prithvi; Water or Jal ; Fire or Agni; Air or Vayu and then Ether. Each of these Five elements has its own character and celestial elements which we will gauge in the following lines.
The Akash is the only element that does not have a perishable half. It is the sky if compared to the most common thing we know around us. It is a carrier of sound energy and when you are into deep meditation you can hear the sounds of the akash. Only those who have yogic powers can actually listen to the sound of the akash. It is this element that links the living souls to the ultimate Supreme Reality. It was AUM that was heard as the first sound and it is still embedded in this element. This is beyond all the above mentioned five elements. Some features of this element are:
Qualities - soft, light, subtle and abundant
Action - provides room, looseness, openness
Facilitates – Ultrasound - sound which is inaccessible to our senses
Substance - anything that is light, profuse, and ethereal
Example - hollow and light foods – popcorn, wafers
Intake - increases softness and lightness in the body
