Who are you? What are you made of? Doshas and Gunas make you into who you are now. Prakruti, one of the chief concepts in Hinduism says the core of every being is made from three gunas: sattva, rajas and tama; it is these which make into the type or category or quality or nature of what you are. While that being said, what's dosha? Your physical attribute along with your nature is you; that's dosha plus guna form you; that is dosha encompasses your physique, looks, and quality. Doshas vata, pitta and kapha define you.
Dosha is the superset of guna, simply speaking. Both are genetically received by you at the minute you were conceived in the womb. Beyond these, whatever physical, mental and psychological changes you see in you are caused by the environment. As we grow, we learn and we evolve. When we miss to understand the individuality of every other being that's definitely different from what we are, conflicts arise. When we learn to appreciate the differences, we evolve into a better person and we get the perfect body and the perfect mind which is totally ideal and not seen largely. That is, when you accept the environment you are in harmony and happy; when you don't, you are in disharmony and disturbed.
The dosha vata refers to air, pitta refers to fire and kapha refers to earth. The amount of each present in each of us determines what we are. When one is prominent of the other two, the term given is vata-dominant or pitta-dominant or kapha-dominant appropriately. When two are dominant compared to the third one, the term used is kapha-vita dominant or vita-pitta dominant or pitta-kapha dominant. When all three are equally distributed in a person he or she may be called vita-pitta-kapha dominant.
