Three years, three oils
This year as Fable & Mane turns three we’re meditating on the significance of this divine number. The number three has a transcendent significance - in nature, mathematics, religion, Ayurveda and beyond. Three signifies harmony, wholeness and unity. It stabilises the number two and gives it balance. After all, two is company but three's a party!
In nature, everything occurs in the Fibonacci sequence, i.e. the golden ratio that demands all beings follow a natural order. In fact, the world was created using three vital ingredients - air, sunlight and water.
In mathematics, the triangle is a foundational shape and is the basis of geometry, physics and engineering. Without a third occurrence, a pattern can never be established.
Spiritually, it stands for the beginning, the middle and the end. In many religions, there are three gods. In Hinduism, Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the preserver and Shiva is the destroyer.

In yoga, it is the mind, body and soul that come together as one! There are three stages while practising yoga and these reflect the three gunas or the three ways of being:
- Sattva guna - the beginning where there is light and harmony, the gestation period.
- Rajas guna - the period of action, of doing and of being.
- Tamas guna - the rest after the activity, a period of quietude and gratitude.
In Ayurveda there are three doshas, or three fundamental energies that rule our bodies: kapha, pitta and vata. An imbalance in a dosha is considered the cause of diseases and ailments, however, a sublime balance in the three leads to a fulfilling life.
