Balancing the Prana

This is a simple practice one can do to balance the prana. Men should use the left ring finger to close the left nostril and exhale strongly from the right nostril. Imagine that all stress and negative emotions flow out with the exhalation. Then close the right nostril with the right ring finger and inhale deeply, very softly and gently, through the left nostril. After inhaling let all the air, the prana, pervade your entire body while you hold the breath for a short period. Then gently exhale and remain in a calm state.

Women reverse the order.

Repeating this again and again will balance one’s energy. The rough emotional prana is exhaled from the white channel and the blissful wisdom prana is inhaled through the red channel. Allow the neutral prana to pervade the entire body. Abide in that calm.
