  3. I think it is the same order in which the original post is written. Prithvi, Jalam, Agni, Vayu, Akaayam. These are my interpretations for the above order..

    The Earth element is the most powerful of all the elements. The Earth is our source of stability.The Earth is also home to material wealth and abundance. When we are in alignment with the Earth, we feel peaceful and happy.

    After earth, water is the most important element. It is linked to our senses of taste, touch, sight and hearing. It is quantitatively the largest of the five elements, as more than 80% of our body and two-third of earth’s surface is water.

    Fire – or the sun – is the great generator for all creation to happen. The early morning sun can heal many diseases and depression.The Fire can bring the highest positive energy, prosperity and fulfill our heart’s desires.

    The Air element is our most basic connection to life. Our body can only survive if we breathe. Through the air, we can receive powerful cosmic energy.

    Any disturbances in the space element affects your growth.Ether is unique as it has only one character – it is eternal
