Prana, the cosmic force in the human being

Using the techniques of hatha yoga and meditation, the Yogi learns to harmonize their vital principles. This work is not only for health, but especially for access dimensions of mind allowing you to capture the real inner nature or being. This nothing they know or want to know the pseudoyogas. Calle Ramiro writes.


Prana It is energy, breath, spirit, breath, life force or vitality. All psychosomatic functions operate thanks to the power of prana, that runs through the veins and is stabilized in the pericardium during deep sleep.

Prana makes possible the thought, perception and action. Prana configures the subtle body, which is a counterpart of the physical body. It is the link between the mind and the body. Through the control of prana stabilizes manas (mind). Prana and manas you are closely interrelated, as a rider and horse. Through mastery of the mind, regulates prana; through the control of respiration, stabilizes manas.

The major sources of prana they are: breath, food, deep sleep, rest and positive mental impressions. We are a miniature universe or a replica of the universe, and also a great accumulator of prana. The Yogi learns to conserve and enhance energy, avoiding dispersing it unnecessarily. The energy depends on the inner power that both Yogi values. My good friend Babaji Sibananda of Benares (author of the book The mystery of the planet, edited by ELA) insisted on the important thing is the internal power for the Yogi and has to cultivate it and train it. Prana also is consciousness and to the extent that one is more conscious and self-conscious, prana is intensified. Prana is also the sexual force. The Yogi learns to balance mind (manas), prana or life energy and libido and sexual function.

True hatha yoga is a source of prana. The asanas or maintained "silhouettes" stimulate the vital energy and aid in the assimilation, balancing the nervous system. Using the control on the body is the control over the mind. The asanas affect both the physical body and the energy body and mental substance

Pranayama It is precise and regulation aware of prana through very verified and specific breathing exercises, which plays a special role the phase of retention (khumbaja). A State of inspiring introspection is achieved through the retention phase, and it energizes the physical body and the energy body (linga sharira). The conquest of the breath, say the ancient Yogis, leads to the conquest of the self deep. The prayanama is a very elaborate science, but most of the instructors of yoga in the West are unaware of it and underestimate. Through pranayama exercises are unfician scattered energies.

Vital air and pranayama

The cosmic energy or Shakti constela in human beings as a vital energy and spiritual energy or prana and kundalini. PFrog is dynamic energy and Kundalini static electricity that must be deployed. Without prana, there is no life. Dying, prana abandons the body. The first unit of vitality or energy is prana. That means this term. Makes it possible to call vital air, that the Yogi learns to channel using the techniques of yoga. For example, the shatkarmas are technical cleaning or body hygiene which also activate more active and harmonious energy flow.

Prana adopts in the human being a dual polarity: male energy (has) and female energy (Tha). Hatha yoga is to balance these two forms of energy, known as lunar and solar energy. It is also harmonize the catabolic energy and the anabolic, the centrifugal impulses and the centripetal. There is nothing free conscious about their bodies hatha-Yogi on-the-job physical and energetic.

Through the implementation of the techniques of hatha yoga and meditation, the Yogi learns to harmonize their vital principles. This work is not only for health, but in particular to access to higher planes of consciousness and use of the physical body and the energy body as tools for access dimensions of mind allowing you to capture the real inner nature or being. Universal energy flows through the body, vehicle of the self, and the Yogi tries to serve the body, "the Temple of the divine", as a means to go beyond the body and connect with original nature.

All this they know nothing or want to know the yoga-fitness or Bikram-yoga, yogas falsified as the athletic 'yogas' or other forms of yoga as watery as distorted or blurred and they become pseudoyogas that give back, inexcusable and unscrupulously, to the true sense, meaning, purpose and scope of the authentic yoga.
