A renowned Ayurvedic teacher explains that each person is dominant in one of three dashas, or essential humors, and that knowing and respecting one's type is essential to maintaining physical and spiritual harmony. In tedious detail, listeners hear about the activities, foods, mental habits, and relationships that complement each type. Though the system will sound rigid or implausible to many (sex after 11 p.m. is bad for the liver?), there is also a romantic quality to the ideas, which is helped along by the narrator's innocent enthusiasm. This helps the material to be heard for what it is--a beautiful religious tradition whose core ideas have guided people for five thousand years.
