Welcome Varsharitu with Ayurvedic Tips!!

Every season has a different effect on our body, mind and soul. Seasons in Ayurveda are called ‘ritus’. The ritus are:

  • Varsha (monsoon)
  • Sharad (autumn)
  • Hemantha (winter)
  • Shishira (late winter)
  • Grishma (summer)
  • Vasanta (spring)

In a year there are different seasons. Shishira, Vasantha and Grishmaritus are called the Adana kala while Varsha, Sharad and Hemantharitus are called Visarga kala.

In other words during the Visargakala, the sun is facing towards the south with its intensity attuned by time, course, cloud, wind and rain. The moon will have unobstructed strength and Nature’s temperature will be cooled by the heavenly waters. Amla (sour), lavana (salt) and madhura (sweet) rasas/ taste increase in progressive order with consequent promotion of strength in the body.
