How ayurveda sees sickness and health: today's yogic quote

Dr Frawley,describes ojas (essential energy of the immune system) in these words from other texts:
The ultimate essence of the reproductive fluids and the heat of the tissues. Located in the heart, it pervades the entire body, giving stability and support. It is moist, of the nature of nectar (soma), transparent, slightly red and yellow in color. When it is destroyed one dies: when it is sustained, one lives.

Ojas is decreased by such factors as anger, hunger, worry, sorrow and overwork. Then one experiences fear and lack of strength. One constantly worries, with disturbed senses. Lacking color, weak in mind, one becomes wasted. Such qualities as patience and faith disappears.
