Yog is a pride possession of our great Indian tradition. Yog knowledge can offer the lightest goal and bliss of life. An anthology of the discourses was expounded by Prashant Iyengar which have been presented here in a book form.
Pranayama is a compound word meaning Prana 'Vital Energy' and Ayama 'Control and Regulation'. But it is not basically breath-control or breath-regulation. Pranayama needs a lot of study of breath usages, applications and Addresses by-on-in-with breath.
Pranayama is the vital energy, which apparently distinguishes animate and inanimate or living and non-living creation. The animate things are believed to be breathing is characteristic of the bio-world or living creations. This breath oscillation in human beings signifies the existence of Prana in the embodiment. The departure of Prana marks the end of the respiration and death of the living being. This book provides a classical and traditional approach towards life by breath control with different types of asanas.
This differentiates between the physiology of respiration that comes in body science and the physiology of breathing that occurs in the science of yog. According to the book, the entire human embodiment is a breathing organism, even inner, outer, physical, psychomental, psychic, gross and subtle and esoteric organs, senses and constitutions.
