The living planet earth beholds the secret of five basic elements.
There are eight planets in our solar system and among the eight only earth holds life sustaining cosmos. And this is possible because there is perfect balance of the five basic element of nature.
The five basic element of nature are :
EARTH (Bhumi) - It is often indicated as the soil on which the entire living world is surviving. The earth has magnetic field that attracts North Pole and South Pole and creates a gravitational pull that makes life possible. This magnetic field created by earth has a considerable effect on the human life.
WATER (Jal) - We all knows that water is another name of life. This exists on earth in three form –liquid (river, sea, and rain), gas (steam, cloud) and solid (ice). The existence of all three of this form in an appropriate amount is very essential for the maintenance of life on earth.
AIR (Vayu) - One of the most power sources of life. The composition of the content of the air in its appropriate proportion is the most needed fact for life to sustain.
FIRE (Agni) - The fire the most powerful element. The right proportion of this element is very important because a little less or little more will totally misbalance the life cycle.
