Alochaka Pitta is a subdosha of Pitta, water and fire.
The other day I got contacts for the first time in years, and this got me to thinking about alochaka pitta. Alochaka governs the eyes. The transformation, perspective, sharpness, luster, and color of the eyes are all a byproduct of the influence of alochaka.
The emotional aspect of alohaka are seen in the different placements of tears. The outside of the eyes is the placement of kapha; tears here are expressions of love, compassion, coolness. Tears from the middle of the eyes, the pitta placement, are expressions of hate, anger, frustration, salt and heat. Vata governs the inner eye where emotions of sadness, grief, fear, and loneliness are relived.
Disorders of Alochaka pitta are due to suppression of these emotions as well as not being able to see something as it is.
So as I adjust to a new perspective and way of seeing, I thank alochaka pitta for aiding me in optical perception!
