Re Death & Wind, Bile, Phlegm

Postby pemachophel » Thu Sep 15, 2011 3:33 pm

Namdrol,

When one dies and is reborn, are any imbalances in the wind, bile, and phlegm wiped clean and one starts again with these in relative balance, or does the imbalance that led to death ( assuming the death was due to disease) in some way carry on? IOW, does a propensity for a certain type of imbalance carry on from life to life? Any clarification on this issue would be much appreciated.

According to Tibetan medicine, imbalances in the three dośas, vata, pitta and kapha, come from the afflictions of desire, hatred and ignorance. Thus, as long as one has three afflictions there will always be imbalances in three dośas. Not all people have the same mix of afflictions, and hence in some people vata disorders will be stronger, and so on.

I.e. ultimately, Dharma is the best medicine, and awakening is perfect health.
