Why We Love


Satva is one of the three fundamental qualities of nature, according to Ayurveda. The other two are Rajas and Tamas. Satva is associated with purity, knowledge, harmony, balance, and peace. It is believed to be the source of all creation and the initiator of the universe.

Satva is considered to be the most desirable quality for a healthy mind and body. When Satva is balanced in an individual, they experience clarity of thought, mental peace, and emotional stability. On the other hand, too much Satva can lead to over-intellectualization or detachment from reality.

Ayurveda recommends that individuals strive for a balance between Satva, Rajas and Tamas in order to achieve optimal health. This balance can be achieved through lifestyle changes such as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep and relaxation time, avoiding stressors such as negative thoughts or emotions, and engaging in spiritual practices such as meditation or yoga.

In addition to lifestyle changes, Ayurvedic treatments such as herbal remedies or massage therapy may also help to restore balance between Satva and its counterparts.
