Panch Tatva Ka Ghoda – Horse of Five elements
The "great" or "gross" elements (mahābhūta) are fivefold: space , air, fire, water and earth. Hindu philosophy believes that GOD is Formless (Nirakar) and yet can take Infinite forms (Sakar).... God has no attributes (Nirgun) and yet He has ALL the infinite qualities (Sagun)...
In Hinduism's sacred literature “Vedas” clearly state :
Ishwar ekoasti, Dwitiya naasti, naasti, naasti (God is one..... not
two, not at all, not at all and not at all..).. so ultimately there is ONLY
ONE GOD.... However the Vedas also state 'It started with ONE and then took
to Infinite and again brought it to one having said "Neti Neti" (neither
this nor that)
and from the earth, plants;
from plants, food;
and from food, mankind.
basically from the attribute-less Brahman came all the 5 elements with
their 5 subjects and their 5 knowledge senses (Ears, skin, eyes, tounge,
nose) with 5 action senses (Hands. Legs, Mouth, Penis/Vagina, Anus)
.....Hence God although being nirgun and nirakar made all the qualities of
Sight, Sound, Touch, Taste and Smell...hence He is also SAGUN and Sakar..
That’s why All Vedas, Upnishads, Brahmin Books, Lord Budhha, Lord Krishna’s Book “Shrimadbhagwad Geeta” clearly states that if one wants ultimate liberation or salvation or peace, he must control, not suppress, his senses and meditate over God and he must offer his all action and its fruits to god and must become Egoless.
Hence the importance of Panch Tatva's....
