The four primary elements (Tib. jungwa chenpo shyi) are

  • 地大種 earth,
  • 水大種 water,
  • 火大種 fire and
  • 風大種 air.

  • Earth is what provides support and stability;
  • water is the principle of cohesion;
  • fire matures; and
  • wind prevents decay.

In addition, space is all-pervasive openness in which phenomena can take place—if it were not for space, a plant could not grow.
