Paramahansa Yogananda Quotes: In The Bhagavad Gita One Stanza Reads

In The Bhagavad Gita. One Stanza Reads: "Offering The Inhaling Breath Into The Exhaling Breath And Offering The Exhaling Breath Into The Inhaling Breath, The Yogi Neutralizes Both Breaths; Thus He Releases Prana From The Heart And Brings Life Force Under His Control."2 The Interpretation Is: "The Yogi Arrests Decay In The Body By Securing An Additional Supply Of Prana (life Force) Through Quieting The Action Of The Lungs And Heart; He Also Arrests Mutations Of Growth In The Body By Control Of Apana (eliminating Current). Thus Neutralizing Decay And Growth, The Yogi Learns Life-force Control." Another Gita Stanza States: "That Meditation-expert (muni) Becomes Eternally Free Who, Seeking The Supreme Goal, Is Able To Withdraw From External Phenomena By Fixing His Gaze Within The Mid-spot Of The Eyebrows And By Neutralizing The Even Currents Of Prana And Apana [that Flow] Within The Nostrils And Lungs; And To Control His Sensory Mind And Intellect; And To Banish Desire, Fear, And Anger."3
