Hinduism - What Is The Ritual Significance Of Fire To The Hindus?


Earth, wind, water, and akasha are the other four elements in ancient Indian cosmology, and fire is one of them. 

Each of the elements is associated with one of the five senses in certain philosophical traditions. 

Because the eye's function in apprehending a visual item is likened to a flame darting out and burning something, fire is connected with sight. 

Fire is also related with digestion in the body, which is often thought of as "cooking" the meals in the digestive tract.
