Prithvi mahabhoota :

The last in the series to evolve is prithvi mahabhoota. Sense of smell (gandha) is its main sense attribute and kharatwa (roughness) is its main property. As we reach this mahabhoota, we are equipped with the basic building blocks of creation.  With the help of these simple building blocks the entire complicated universe with its living and non-living matter is created!! The quantitative and qualitative permutation combinations of these basic elements constitute the matter within and beyond our imagination.

Besides these pancha mahabhoota Ayurved also takes in to consideration dik (disha, direction), kala (time), aatma (soul) and mana (psyche), to be responsible for the creation of living being.

First five are named as panchamahabhoota, which is the main element of this visible universe.
