Ranjaka initiates haemopoiesis in the red bone marrow and stimulates erythropoietin secretion by the kidneys. Ranjaka assists in the emulsification of fats, forms the stool and gives it shape and colour. Ranjaka is connected to enthusiasm, will and desire, and a lack of these qualities indicates its deficiency. Ranjaka also relates to the colour of skin, and thus yellow or red discolorations can indicate a derangement of ranjaka. as OF pitta ● ● ● ● ● Pa¯caka pitta Ranjaka pitta Sa¯dhaka pitta A¯locaka pitta Bhra¯jaka pitta.

Sa¯ra. According to this understanding sam sa ¯ra represents the inexorable law of . change, that no subject or object ever remains com- pletely static. This means that the definitive conclusions drawn today eventually become the redundancies of tomorrow because the stream of data upon which these conclusions were based has changed. To use an analogy, the nature of objectivity is akin to the ancient light of the stars that fills the heavens at night: what we see now, objectively, has already become something else.

Aham . ka¯ra is in many ways similar to the psychological concept of the ego, as a force that separates each of us into an individualised and incomplete experience of the Whole. When this principle of aham . ka¯ra is at work in our consciousness, we each think that we are unique people. More closer to the truth is that only the conditions of the individual existence are different, not the function of aham . ka¯ra. It is the sense of ‘me’ that is aham ka ¯ra, the same sense of . ‘me-ness’ that is possessed by each individual being.
