Lord of the Doshas (The 6 tastes)

(Capo 8th)

VERSE
Em
Come with me down to sub-cellular level
G
I've got something very important to tell you
A
Both your body and mind
C
Are determined by the taste of your food

Sweet Madhura oily, cooling and heavy
Builds the body and stabilises the mind
Great for Pitta / Vata, but less for Kapha
Excess leads to obese disease

G
The sour Amla is fire and water
Em
Heating and light it helps Vata digest
C
But in Pitta / Kapha it causes water retention
D
Liquid and oily it takes them to excess

Salty Lavana what is your Karma?
Heating, heavy and oily
OK for Vata, bad for Pitta / Kapha
Excess is bad for the skin, causes ageing

D
The actions of these three increase

CHORUS
G
They are the tastes, that define us
D
These are the rules, that intwine us
Am
Everything that you've done, is simply the sum
C
If you master the tastes then you will become
     D                  Em
A lord of the Doshas

VERSE
Pungent Tikta

The actions of these three decrease
