Understanding & diagnosing your muscles, Mamas Dhatu, according to Ayurveda
Mamsa Dhatu: Muscles The term “mamsa dhatu” literally means “flesh” or “meat,” in Ayurveda it refers to the muscles of the body. Mamsa dhatu is more than muscle; it is the provider of strength, courage, and self-confidence. When healthy, our muscles work in a modest fashion to express the needs and desires of the ego, while also available to express the creative inspiration. In other words, our flesh (body) is the part that identifies with the ego according to ayurveda.
