The Four Primary Material Elements

Based on the traditional categorizations of earth, fire, water and air, this episode examines the somewhat pre-scientific point of view on the four energies in the body. Of course, there's some enlightening tangents, including mortality and aging, and the purpose of your personal practice. From Chapter Four of Mahasi Sayadaw's Manual of Insight.
