prakṛti

1. The nature of an individual or a substance. 2. The physical and psychological features specific to an individual that are produced to the dominant Doṣa prevailing at the time of conception. Prakrti may be classified as Deha Prakrti (physical) and Manasa Prakrti (psychological). Deha Prakrti may be produced due to the dominance of a single Dosa, two Dosas or due to a combination of all the three Dosas.
