Swift as a deer, cold as ice. The coldness of the harsh winds against the variegated of the desert nights – such is the nature of Vata. Vata, the mobile force of the Universe, is influenced by the air and space element. Vata permeates the subtle body. In essence, Vata and Kapha are the two opposite extremes, which are regulated by Pitta. At the cosmic level, Kapha is the food force, Vata is the mobile force, and Pitta the dynamic force of dream.
