  6. 6. Inter-relationship of Shareera & Manas Doshas Shareera & Mana are related with each other through their fundamental functional forces viz. the Tridoshas & Trigunas, respectively. Interrelationship between both kinds of doshas was studied at different levels like origin, functioning, health, diseases and death. To understand the inter-relationship, details of conjugation and configuration i.e. Amshamsha Kalpana of Mahabhootas were analysed. Analysis showed that Vata had predominance of both Rajas & Tamas, Pitta had predominance of Rajas and Kapha had predominance of Tamas .
