According to Ayurveda, there are three equally important aspects to mental performance.
The first is ‘dhi’, learning and comprehension, governed by Vata dosha, the second is ‘dhriti’, processing and retention of knowledge, the realm of Pitta dosha and ‘smriti’, memory or recall controlled by Kapha dosha.
