“Pranayama is more than just controlling the breath. Its primary purpose is to awaken prana, to maintain a healthy body and mind, and to prepare ourselves so that we can become aware of the more subtle levels of our existence.”
- – Prana Pranayama Prana Vidya
“The use of Mantra…is effective in securing single-pointedness of mind… Mantra leads the spirit, lost in trivialities and worldly pursuits, back to pure Essence.”
