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.
Water (Jala or Apa)
Water or Jal is the second element which again has two characters as in the Earth i.e. eternal in the shape of atom and Karya (Work) be it as river, pond or sea is perishable. As from sea or river water evaporates to be in the sky as cloud then again in the shape of rain it comes down on earth. So the eternal atom is only changing its karya or shape of work and what we see is the perishable form. From the sense organ perspective we can touch it to feel and taste it as well. Some features of this element are:
Qualities - oily (unctuous), moist, cool, soft, and sticky
Attribute - cohesion, lubrication
Facilitates - fluidity and taste (via saliva)
Substance - anything liquid, fluid or watery
Example - drinks, soups, melons, cucumber
Intake - increases smoothness, coolness, softness and flow of fluids
The Om Shanti Kit has to be installed on a Monday in the West direction of your room or home or office. The Om Shanti Kit should be placed in the West directions as the energies of Swadhisthana Chakra, Planet Chandra and Water Element resides in this direction. Lord Krishna is the ruling Deity of the West direction. The Om Shanti Kit has to be placed in the West area or room of the house. The Kit is best placed on some stool, side table or on a heavy duty wall stand.
