Philosophy of Pranayama
“Breath is a vehicle for prana to move in the body. Prana is the vital principle in the universe, the life force within us. Prana is the first unit of energy in the universe, says Swami Rama.
Pranayama consists of two components – pra and ayama. Prana is the vital principle of the universe. Ayama is an expansion. The second etymology is prana and yama. Yama is control over the prana. Expansion of prana and control over prana is pranayama.
Prana circulates through the body by means of over 72,000 energy channels, or nadis.” From an article by Pandit Hari Shankar Dabral – click here.
