Every Person is Unique During Creation
If we recognise our true nature (prakrti), then, according to Ayurveda, we have already attained a high degree of self-fulfillment. One of the fundamental goals of life and healing is to be in harmony with one’s own constitution. According to the basic principles, the weighting and expression of the three doshas vata, pitta, and kapha are encoded at the genetic and biological level to define of seven possible constitutional types. Ayurveda believes that our fate manifests itself in our individual constitution. In the long run, it is not possible for us to live counter to our own original nature. And yet most of us are at war with our physical or mental faculties. Whether we are slim, creative, and medial (vata); sporty, ambitious and freckled (pitta); or restful, persevering, and economical (kapha), we prefer to define to identify ourselves with the shadows of our constitution than with the potential lying dormant within us.

Vata, Pitta, Kapha: Ayurveda and your Constitution
The art of living in harmony with one’s own constitution means letting go of all our (negative) interpretations of our constitutions and instead of discovering the abilities and potentials hidden within us. Only by using and testing our type-specific strengths, we will become aware of the unprecedented possibilities of our true self. Vata, can always rely on a good idea, even in the greatest need; Pitta, rely on their intelligence; and Kapha on their stability and adaptability.
