PANCHATATVA : THE ESSENCE OF LIFE
A Philosophy that Underlines the whole Universe.
Our journey into creativity has its origins in the journey of life on this planet. "Some time in space, millions of years ago - gaseous matter condensed into spheres with the passage of time. As time passed, molten fire solidified the matter into earth. Heat from within the earth made geysers erupt and that is how, the oceans were formed." In this way, the earth and all that it was meant to constitute arose from five core elements, which Indian philosophy recognises as 'panchatatva'. The word 'panchatatva' originates from Sanskrit, where "panch" stands for five and "tatva" indicates elements. Following the universal law of life, every thing on this planet is composed of five basic elements or the "panchamahabhutas". These are : Akash (Space), Vayu (Air), Jal (Water), Agni (Fire) and Prithvi (Earth). It is thus true that all natural life including plants, animals and humanity at large are a combination of all these five core elements. In fact, in every creation - animate as well as inanimate - one can find a fine mix of all the five 'tatvas' in varying degrees, depending on the structure, nature and function of that object. Each element, in turn, is rich with its own intrinsic quality and property to influence a creation or being
It is thus understandable that just like earthly existence or the natural surroundings all around us - human existence is nothing but a microcosm of all the five elements put together in different degrees. Human life exists, blossoms and flourishes in abundance, when all these five elements of life are present in a state of harmony. This is also the essence of the ancient science of Vastu-Shastra, the science of balancing life energy within a living or work premises so as to foster peace, health, prosperity and overall well-being.
At Panchatatva, we make sure that each art piece - designed, crafted and offered by us - fulfills all the positive and synergistic qualities of the five core elements of life.
