We will continue with THE CHIDAKASHA GITA OF BHAGAVAN NITYANANDA OF GANESHPURI BEGINNING WITH VERSE 210. Pooraka is drawing the breath up. Kumbaka is retaining the breath. Rechaka is the exhaling of breath, slowly from within. Many sorts of cakes are prepared from the same rice. So also, by breath, everything is accomplished. The functions are different. What is called Pranayama is all internal working. The same is ShivaShakti in man. When this Shakti is guided to Brahma-Randhra, it is communion with God-head.
In Pranayama, Pooraka is drawing the breath up. Kumbaka is retaining the breath. Rechaka is slowly exhaling the breath from within. Just as many sorts of cakes are prepared from the same rice, so also, from the one Prana, every thing is accomplished. When Prana is controlled and led to the “Sahasrar” in the brain, the entire Universe will be within one’s Self. Such a man will be the ALL and the ALL will be he. What is called Pranayama is all internal working. Shiva-Shakti in man is developed by Pranayama. When “Shiva Shakti” (power of Shiva) in man is let to the Brahma-Randhra in the head (cavity at the top-end of the Sushumna Canal), a man attains communion with the God-head. Such a man will attain the Supreme Bliss.
