You can cleanse the elements in your system to such an extent that you attain Bhuta Siddhi, mastery over the elements. Then you not only have mastery over the body and the mind, but over many aspects of creation.-Sadhguru

The basis for all creation, including the physical body, is the group of five elements: earth, water, winds, fire and space. The wellbeing of body and mind can be established by purifying these five elements within the human system. This process also shapes the body into a stepping-stone towards one ultimate wellbeing.

There is a whole system of yoga called “Bhuta Shuddhi” which means “purification of the elements.” The Bhuta Shuddhi processes provide a unique opportunity for everyone to benefit from this esoteric yogic science, which otherwise requires intense sadhana (spiritual practices).

The benefits of Bhuta Shuddhi include:

  • Keeps the system in harmony and balance
  • Prepares the system to handle powerful states of energy
  • Enhances the capabilities of the physical body, mind and energy system
  • Creates the basis to gain complete mastery over the human system
