Ojas is the Essence of Happiness

The sweet nectar you ask about is called Ojas. The word Ojas ओजस् literally translates to splendor, vitality, power, luster, appearance, and bodily strength.

You can think of Ojas as the container that holds your happiness. It is the purest essence of Kapha Dosha. In the physical body it is related to the reproductive, hormonal, and cerebrospinal fluids.

An abundance of ojas gives a glow and sparkle to the eyes and complexion as well making the body robust with a healthy immunity.

For the mind ojas helps to increase mental clarity and focus, keeps us creative and gives an overall sense of well-being.

Signs to let you know that you levels of ojas are waning are mental confusion, inability to focus, anxiety, depression, and loneliness.

Healthy diets help to increase ojas as do the practices of japa and meditation as they ease the mind and allow ojas to permeate the energy layers. One of the easiest ways to create more ojas is laughter and smiling. Do this often and you will feel ojas blooming in your heart space!
