Air Is An Element

Although it is mostly clear and we walk in it and see through it every day, air is an element composed of gases, molecules and atoms. It’s also mentioned in the Gita as the element known as vayuh (7.4). Air is subtle and heavy and forms foam in water, which makes it both dry and wet at the same time. Understanding more about it has enabled human beings to fly. And air “conditioning” is something some people in hot climates say they can’t live without.
