  • 30.  The term Prana in Sanskrit means a continuous movement which characterizes all these five Pranas. We use the definitions of these terms directly from Prasnopanisad.
  • 31. Since the same term Prana is used at two levels of manifestation, we use the term‘Varistha Prana’ (the main Prana) for the basic life fabric. Varistha Prana Apana Samana Prana Udana Vyana
  • 32.  There are a hundred and one main Nadis (channels or tubes for Prana) in the Pranamaya Kosa. In each one of these there are 100 brahches which have 72,000 nadis each. And through all these flows the Vyana. Vyana governs the sense of touch and the flow of impulses in the nerves.

Fourteen are principal nadis; three are the main nadis.Ida Also known as Chandra Nadi (moon energy) Begins at the root and ends in the left nostril and is associated with right brain activity - feminine energy, nurturing, intuitive and introspective.Pingala Also known as Surya Nadi (sun energy) begins at the root and ends in the right nostril and is associated with left brain activity - masculine energy, active and strong.Sushumna Nadi Agni (fire) - Central Channel located in the spine and runs from Mulandhara chakra to Sahasrara chakra -connects all the chakras. It is the power that guides us consciously or unconsciously to higher awareness - the path toward enlightenment.
  • 34. The chakras are the subtle energy centers ofthe body. Like pinwheels, thechakras spin at the speed of light, emanatingthe colors of the spectrum, eachresonating with a particular frequency.These colors combine to form the aurasthat surround each of us, connecting us witheach other and with the cosmos. There are crucial points of energy that we use, whether consciously or unconsciously, to affect reality and allow us to fully experience and realize events that unfold before us. These focal points are called Chakras.
