#10 – Vata – Fly On, Little Wing – #TridoshaSeries

31/41

This episode opens the little #TridoshaSeries to bring understanding of Ayurvedic doshas closer to you. Today, we are learning about Vata, the wind-like queen of movement & the most subtle of all doshas. Vata moves us, literally! It’s the true power of inspiration and creativity. No music, no art, no poems would ever be created if it wasn’t for Vata!

When I think of its qualities, I think of this song from Jimi Hendrix – a real tribute to the beauty of Vata:

Well she’s walking through the clouds
With a circus mind
That’s running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams
And fairly tales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind
When I’m sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me free
It’s alright, she says
It’s alright
Take anything you want from me
Anything
Fly on, little wing

Jimi Hendrix – “Little Wing” from the album Axis: Bold as Love (1967)

P.S. What’s interesting, when you look at the cover album, you can see Indian / Hindu symbolism on it! ? Coincidence? ?
