Key Concepts of
Ojas: The Substance That Maintains
Ojas is the by-product of a healthy, efficient, contented
physiology. It is the "juice" that remains after food has been properly digested
and assimilated. When you are producing ojas, it means all your organs have integrated
vitality and you are receiving the nourishment your mind and body need. Your whole being
hums with good vibrations because you are producing and feeling bliss, not pain. However,
when your agni isn't working properly, you don't produce ojas. Instead food, thoughts, and
feelings turn into ama.
Ojas is the subtle glue that cements the body, mind and
spirit together, integrating them into a functioning individual.
