Vikarah means 'Sixteen Transformations' which is the interconnection of the following;
⚛️ Five basic elements (Panchamahabhutas or Tatvas) – Agni (fire), Prithvi (earth), Jal (water), Vayu (air) & Akasha (space)
⚛️ Five working senses (Jnanendriyas) of our body – Tongue (jivha) for Taste, Nose (grahnu) for Smell, Eyes (chakshu) for Sight, Ears (shotra) for Sound & Skin (tvak) for Touch
⚛️ Five knowledge-acquiring senses (Karmendriyas) of our body – Mouth (vak) to speak, Hands (pani) to grasp and hold, Feet (pada) to move, Rectum (payu) to eliminate, Genitals (upastha) to procreate.
⚛️ Mind (Manas) – which is sensory & processing. Within all these, the one spiritual Soul (Aatma) exists as the observer.
The great Acharyas have concluded that every being in this universe is created from these Sixteen Transformative Elements. At Vikarah, our products completely embody this philosophy of transformation by following the ritualistic process as illustrated below.
⚛️ Agni (Fire) symbolises Eyes which are responsible for our Sight (Roop)

We delight your Taste (Water) by maintaining our interconnection with nature as the basis of our products (pure water, edible herbs, flowers, seeds, vegetables, fruits, raw butter and cold-pressed oils) creating a robust balance between your overall well-being and personal care.
⚛️ Vayu (air) symbolises Skin which is responsible for our Touch (Sparsha)
