Deep breathing

Each deep breath consists of a full inhalation through the nose and an equally deep and even exhalation through the nose.
Breathe in as slowly as you can. Breathe out as slowly as you can. Observe the following rules while inhaling:

1. Get up. Keep your hands on your hips with your elbows pointing out but not forced back. Stand comfortably.

2. Stretch your chest straight up. Use your hands to push the hip bones down. This process creates a vacuum and the air will flow in on its own.

3. Keep your nostrils wide open. Don't use your nose like a suction pump. They should be a passive passage for both inhaled and exhaled air. Remember that correct breathing is noiseless.

4. Stretch the entire upper part of the torso.

5. Arch your upper chest into a relaxed position. Naturally, keep your stomach relaxed.

6. Don't bend your head too far back. Don't pull in your stomach. Don't pull your shoulders up.

Carefully observe the following rules while exhaling:

1. Gradually lower the ribs and the entire upper part of the torso downward.

2. Slowly pull the lower ribs and belly inward.

3. Don't bend your body too far forward. Arching the rib cage should be avoided. Keep your head, neck, and torso in a straight line. Pull your rib cage together. Do not exhale the air through your mouth. Breathe out very slowly and silently.

4. Exhalation takes place by relaxing the muscles that were tensed when you inhale. The chest falls under its own weight and the air is expelled through the nose.

5. In the beginning, do not hold your breath after inhaling. After inhaling, exhaling occurs immediately. As you progress, you can slowly hold your breath for anywhere from 5 seconds to a minute, depending on your ability.

6. When a round of deep breathing is over, you can take a short pause while breathing normally. Then start the second round. During the break, stand calmly and in a comfortable position with your hands on your hips. The number of rounds can be determined individually (according to the ability). Do 3 or 4 rounds, increasing by one round every week. Deep breathing is just one variation of the Pranayamas.

Pranayama during meditation

In concentration and meditation arises Pranayama by itself. The breath gets slower and slower. We practice this Pranayama daily unconscious. When you read an exciting story or solve a math problem, your mind is very absorbed in the subject. If you watch your breath closely in such situations, you will find that the breath has become very slow. When you see a tragic story in the theater or in the cinema, when you hear sad or good news, when you shed tears, be it out of joy or sadness, or burst into laughter, your breathing slows down, Pranayama comes by itself. These examples clearly show that breathing slows down or stops when the mind is deeply focused on something. Pranayama will run automatically. Mind and Prana are very closely related. If you turn your attention to the breath on such occasions, it will return to its normal state. Pranayama comes by itself in those who are deeply engaged in Yep, Dhyana or Brahma-Vichara (Searching for the Atman) have sunk.

Prana, Mind and Virya (Reproductive energy) are in a Sambandha (Connection). If you can control your breath, you will Prana and Virya dominated by itself. If you can control the prana, mind and are Virya dominated by itself. If Virya is dominated by lingering as Akhanda Brahmacharii.e., if not a drop of semen is given off for 12 years, mind and prana are self-controlled. Just as there is a connection between wind and fire (light), there is also a connection between Prana and mind. The wind kindles the fire. Prana kindles the mind. When there is no wind, fire and light become calm. Hatha yogis getting closer Brahman by controlling the Pranas. Raja yogis getting closer Brahman by controlling the mind. At the Pranayama you don't need to close your nostrils. Just close your eyes when practicing in a sitting position. Forget the body and concentrate. If you practice this while walking, simply feel the movement of the air that is inhaled and exhaled.

Pranayama while walking

With your head upright, step back with your shoulders, your chest expanded. Inhale slowly through both nostrils and mentally count 3 OMs, one OM with each step. Then hold your breath until you have counted OM 12 times. Then slowly exhale through both nostrils until you have counted OM 6 times. If you find it difficult to count an OM with each step, count off the OMs unrelated to the steps.

Pranayama in Shavasana

Lie on your back as comfortably as possible on a blanket. Put your arms on the floor next to your body, palms up. Keep your legs straight, feet about 50 cm apart, toes falling outward.

Rhythmic breathing

Breathing in men and women is very uneven. On exhaling, the Prana goes outward by 16 finger-widths and on inhalation only 12 finger-widths inward, so that 4 finger-widths are lost. However, if you breathe in 16 finger widths as you do when you breathe out, you will have rhythmic breathing. Then the energy of the Kundalini to raise. You will recover very well through rhythmic breathing. You can control the respiratory center located in the medulla oblongata and also other nerves, since the respiratory center has a kind of control effect on other nerves. If you have calm nerves, you also have a calm mind.

When the amount of inhalation and exhalation are the same, you have rhythmic breathing. If you count OM 6 x while inhaling, count OM 6 x while exhaling. This is inhaling and exhaling in an even manner. It harmonizes the physical body, mind and spirit Indriyas, the tired nerves are calmed. You will experience complete calm and inner silence. All the foaming emotions and surging impulses will calm down.

There is another type of rhythmic breath. Inhale slowly through both nostrils for 4 OMs .; hold your breath for 8 x OM (inner Kumbhaka); slowly exhale through both nostrils for 4 x OM and hold your breath exhaled for 8 x OM (outer Kumbhaka).

Repeat the above process a few times according to your strength and abilities. With some practice you can gradually increase the duration of inhalation and exhalation to 8 OMs and the periods of holding to 16 OMs. However, never try to increase the times before you are sure that you have the energy and strength to do so. You must experience joy and pleasure in the practice. You shouldn't feel excessive strain. Be very careful to keep the rhythm. Remember that rhythm is more important than length of breath. You have to feel the rhythm in your entire body. Practice will make you perfect. Patience and perseverance are required.

The relaxation of the body muscles brings calm to the body and mind. The tension in the muscles is eliminated.People who have mastered the science of relaxation never waste energy. You can meditate well. Take a few deep breaths, then lie flat on your back in Shavasana(Back relaxation position). Relax all of the muscles in the body from head to feet. Roll on to one side and relax as thoroughly as you can, loosening your muscles as you go. Roll over to the other side and relax. This is naturally done by everyone during sleep. There are various relaxation exercises for the specific muscles of each part of the body. You can relax your head, shoulders, arms, forearms, wrists, etc. Yogis know all about relaxation. When practicing these various exercises, you need to have a mental picture of calm and strength.

Relaxation of the mind

Mental equilibrium and calm can be established by overcoming worry and anger. Actually, there is fear behind both. Nothing is gained through worry and anger; on the contrary, a lot of energy is wasted through these two types of lower emotions. If a person worries a lot and is irritable, then he is indeed a very weak person. Be careful and considerate. All unnecessary worries can be avoided. Relaxing the muscles acts on the mind and brings calm to the mind. On the other hand, relaxation in the mind also brings calm to the body. The body is an imprint made according to the ideas of the mind, for the pleasure of the mind.

Sit in a relaxed and comfortable position for 15 minutes. Close your eyes. Withdraw the mind from the external objects. Calm the mind. Let the bubbling thoughts be silent. Think that the body is a coconut shell and that you are completely different from the body. Think the body is an instrument in your hands. Identify yourself with the all-pervading mind, the Atman. Imagine that the whole world and your body are floating like a straw in this vast ocean of spirit. Feel that you are in contact with the highest being. Feel that the life of the entire world pulsates, vibrates and throbs in you. Feel that the ocean of life is rocking you gently in its huge lap. You will experience great spiritual peace, power and strength. Practice and feel this.

Importance and benefits of pranayama

“The deceptive vasanas (desires) of samsara (cycle of birth and death), which have arisen through many lifetimes, can only be mastered by very long yoga practice. Only by carefully practicing proven methods is it possible to control the mind. " (Muktikopanishad)

“How could jnana (knowledge) that moksha (liberation) bring safely arise without yoga? And yoga, too, becomes powerless in maintaining moksha if it is without jnana. Hence, the aspirant should consistently practice both yoga and jnana in order to attain liberation. " (Yogatattwa Upanishad)

“Tatah kshiyate prakasavaranam” - This is how the veil that covers the inner light disappears (Yoga Sutras Chapter II, Verse 52). Tamas (Indolence) and Rajas (Passion) form the ceiling or the veil. This veil becomes through the practice of Pranayama eliminated. After the veil is removed, the true nature of the soul is recognized. Chitta (Mind) itself is made up of saturated (pure) particles, but is made up of Rajas and Tamas enveloped, just as fire is enveloped in smoke. There is no act more cleansing than Pranayama. Pranayama gives purity and the light of knowledge shines. Through the magical panorama of desire, the essence, which is naturally luminous, is obscured and Jiva (the individual soul) is directed to the vices. This karma of the yogi, which obscures the light and binds him to repeated births, is achieved through the practice of Pranayamas Bit by bit weakened and finally destroyed. To Vachaspati the shell that covers the self consists of sufferings and sins.

Manu says: "Let pranayama burn away the shortcomings.Vishnu Purana speaks of Pranayama as an aid to yoga: "The one who, through constant practice, has recognized the subtle inner air flow as Prana, life energy, has achieved security in Pranayama."Dharanasu cha yogyata manasah"- "And the mind becomes able to concentrate" (Yoga Sutras Chapter II, Verse 53). You will be able to concentrate the mind well after this veil is removed from the light. The mind will be very firm, like the flame in a sheltered place, when the disturbing energy has been removed. The word Pranayama is sometimes used collectively for inhalation, holding and exhalation, and sometimes for each of these phases separately. If Prana Vayu in Akasha Tattva (Ether element) moves, breathing is reduced. At this point it will be easy to hold your breath. The speed of the mind is going slowly through Pranayama reduced. It will bring about Vairagya (arrestlessness).

If you can hold a finger's breadth of breath within, you will receive the powers of prophecy; if you can hold two fingers inside, you will get the power of mind reading, with holding back the breath by three fingers of levitation, with four fingers of psychometry, clairaudience, etc., with five fingers of the ability to move invisible to all; at six fingers the power of the ‘Kaya Siddhi‘; at seven fingers the ability to enter another person's body (Parakaya Pravesa); at eight fingers the strength to always remain young; at nine fingers the power Devas To let (angelic beings) work for you as servants; at ten fingers Anima, Mahima and other Siddhis; and at eleven fingers you become unified with Paramatman gain. If, through great practice, the yogi can do kumbhaka for a full three hours, he can balance on one thumb. He attains all kinds of Siddhis. Just as fire destroys fuel, it destroys too Pranayama the bundles of Papas (negative karma, sins). Pratyahara makes the mind calm. Dharana solidifies the mind. Dhyana makes one forget the body and the world. Samadhi brings infinite bliss, knowledge, peace and liberation.

During yogic samadhi, the flame of the melts Yogagni (Fire of yoga in the solar plexus), which extends from the navel to the head, that Amrita (Nectar) im Brahmarandhra (Skullcap). The yogi drinks this with joy and ecstasy. By drinking only this yogic nectar, he can remain without food and drink for months.
The body becomes lean, strong and healthy. Excess fat is broken down. His face is glowing. The eyes sparkle like diamonds. The practitioner becomes more and more attractive. The voice becomes beautiful, clear and melodic. The sounds of the inner Anahata (inner sound) can be heard in it. He is in Brahmacharya (Ability to be celibate) strengthened. The sex energy becomes firm and calm. The Jathar-agni (Digestive fire) is increased. The student is thus accomplished in Brahmacharyathat his mind does not waver even when a fairy tries to hug him. The appetite grows. The Nadis are cleaned. Vikshepais eliminated and the mind becomes one-point. Rajas and Tamasare destroyed. The mind is prepared for Dharana and Dhyana. The excretions are meager. Constant practice elevates the inner spiritual light, happiness and peace of mind. It makes him one Urdhvaretho yogi (one who can sublimate his energies). Advanced students will attain all of the siddhis mentioned above.

A person's mind can be made to transcend ordinary experience to exist on a plane higher than reason. This is known as the superconscious state and goes beyond the limit of concentration. The truth, which ordinary consciousness cannot grasp, is immediately revealed to his face. This should be done through proper and regular practice and manipulation of the subtle forces of the body to give the mind an upward thrust into higher regions. When the mind is raised to the superconscious state of knowledge, it begins to act from there and experiences higher truths and higher knowledge. Of this kind, the ultimate goal of yoga is obtained through the practice of Pranayama can be obtained. Control of the vibrating Pranas for a yogi means lighting the flame of the highest knowledge, self-realization.

special instructions

1. First meet your urgent needs early in the morning, then sit down for your yoga practices. Practice Pranayama in a dry and well-ventilated area. Pranayama requires deep focus and attention. It is best to do the exercise in a calm sitting position. Do not let anyone near you lest your mind be distracted.

2. Before you go to the Pranayama sit down, clean your nostrils well. Before doing the exercises, you can drink a small amount of fruit juice, water, or a small cup of milk. When the pranayama exercises are over, after 10 minutes you can drink a cup of milk or have a light meal.

3. If it is very hot in the evening in summer, you should only practice in the morning. If you experience heat in the brain or head, rub amla oil or butter on your head before taking your bath. take Misri Sherbatby dissolving rock sugar in water. This has a cooling effect. Also practice Sitali Pranayama. You won't mind the heat then.

4. Strictly avoid too much talking, eating, sleeping, being with friends, and exertion.
"For those who eat too much, oh friend, but also for those who eat nothing, exaggerate sleeping and waking, yoga is nothing for them." (Bhagavad Gita VI-16)
Eat a little ghee with rice when you have your meals. This will lubricate the bowels as well Vayu Allow (air) to move freely downwards.

5. “Mitaharam vina yastu yogarambham tu karayet, Nanaroga bhavettasya kinchid yogo na sidhyati”. If you practice yoga without paying attention to your diet, you will not get any benefit from it and you will get various diseases.

6. Complete sexual abstinence for six months or a year will no doubt enable you to make rapid progress in practice and spiritual advancement. Don't talk to women (or men). Don't laugh or joke with them. Avoid their company completely. Without Brahmacharya (sexual abstinence) and without a special diet, you will not get maximum spiritual benefit from the intense advanced yoga practices. Of course, you can always practice light exercises for general health. Then the above restrictions are not so important.

7. Practice regularly and systematically. Don't miss a day. Only stop exercising if you are seriously ill. Some people distort their facial muscles when they do Kumbhaka (Hold your breath). This should be avoided. It is a sign that they are beyond their capabilities. That must be strictly avoided. Such people cannot be controlled Rechaka (Exhalation) and Puraka (Inhalation).

8. Obstacles in yoga are: sleeping during the day, staying awake overnight, having an excessive amount of urine and feces, the ills of indigestible food and busy mental activity Prana. If you get sick, it shouldn't be attributed to yoga practices. This is a serious mistake.

9. Get up at 4 a.m. Meditate or practice Yep (Repetition of the mantra) for half an hour. Then do asanas and mudras. After a deep relaxation of 15 minutes you can join Pranayama start. Sports activities can go well with the Asanas be combined. If you have enough time, you can get active after finishing all yoga exercises and meditation. Pranayama can also be done immediately after getting up Yep and meditation are performed. It will make your body light and you will enjoy meditation. You can practice in the order that best suits your timing and habits and is most comfortable for you.

10. Maximum benefit is achieved when Yep (Repetition of the mantra) also when practicing the Asanas and des Pranayamas is made.

11. It is best Yep and meditation Start early at 4 a.m. as soon as you get out of bed. At this time the mind is very calm and refreshed. You can then concentrate well.

12. The majority of people waste their valuable early morning time doing their morning toilet for half an hour and spending another half hour brushing their teeth. This is bad. Aspirants should try to clear their feces in 5 minutes and clean their teeth in 5 minutes. If the bowels are clogged, practice after getting up Shalabhasana (Grasshopper), Bhujangaasana (Cobra) and Dhanurasana (Arch) very intense for 5 minutes.

13. Do it first Yep and meditation. Then step with the Asanas and the pranayama practice. End the entire session with another short meditation.

14. When you get up, you are usually a bit sleepy. It is therefore useful to do some for about 5 minutes Asanas and a bit Pranayama to do away with drowsiness and get ready for meditation. After practicing Pranayama the mind becomes concentrated (one-point). Pranayama has a good effect on various internal organs and the whole body.

15. The classic sequence of yoga exercises is as follows: Do all of them first Asanas, then Mudras, subsequently Pranayama and then Dhyana. Since the early morning is particularly suitable for meditation, you can adhere to the following order: J.apa, meditation, asanas, mudras and Pranayama. This a better way. You can stick to the order that works for you. Do after the Asanas a deep relaxation of 5 minutes and then start with Pranayama.

16. Some Hatha yoga Books forbid cold bathing in the early morning. The reason for this may be that if you take a cold bath at 4am you might catch a cold or develop some kind of ailment in your lungs, especially in cold places like Kashmir, Mussoorie, Darjeeling, etc. This restriction does not apply to warm places. As long as it is refreshing and stimulating, I always favor cold baths before starting any yoga practices. It drives away drowsiness. It stimulates the circulation and is healthy for the heart. There is a healthy flow of blood to the brain.

17. Asanas and Pranayama remove all kinds of diseases, improve health, energize digestion, strengthen nerves, stretch Sushumna Nadi (Energy channel in the spine), remove Rajas and awaken the Kundalini. The practice of Asanas and Pranayama confer good health and a calm mind. Since no Sadhana (spiritual practice) without good health and no meditation is possible without having a calm mind Hatha yoga also for Dhyana (Meditation) yogis, Karma yogis (selfless service), Bhaktas (Worshipers) and Vedantin's great use.

18. Maintaining the body is impossible without asanas or some kind of physical exercise or activity. Even an orthodox (strict) vedante (who practices the yoga of knowledge) is an unconscious hatha yogi. He practices some kind of asana (in the sense of sitting posture) every day. He also practices pranayama unconsciously, since pranayama comes by itself during meditation.

19. Whenever you feel uncomfortable, depressed, or discouraged, practice Pranayama. You will immediately be filled with new life force, energy and strength. You will be exalted, renewed, and filled with joy. Before you start writing an essay, article, or paper, do it first Pranayama. You will generate beautiful ideas and it will be an inspiring, powerful and original work.

20. Be regular in your practice. Regularity is especially important when getting the maximum benefit from the company Asanas and Pranayama want to pull. Those who only practice now and then will not get much benefit.Usually people start practicing with great enthusiasm for two months and then slack off in practice. This is a mistake. They always want a yoga teacher by their side and do not have the willpower to practice alone. You have an effeminate mentality. They are lazy, limp and sluggish.

21. Most people do not want to be by selfless service Mala (Impurity) and from Vikshepa Liberate (restlessness of the mind) through yoga practices. You want that right now Kundalini awaken and Brahmakara Vritti (Realization: I am Brahman (The Absolute)) evoke. You will stumble and fall on the spiritual path. The ones who try the Kundalini by Asanas and Pranayama awakening should have purity in thought, word and deed. You should have brahmacharya mentally and physically. Only then can they enjoy the benefits of the awakening Kundalini enjoy.

22. Sow the seeds of spirituality in your youth. Don't waste any Virya (sexual energy). Discipline them Indriyas
