“He who knows Prana knows Vedas” is the important declaration of the Srutis. You will find in Vedanta Sutras: “For the same reason, breath is Brahman.” Prana is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe. It is the sum total of all the forces in nature. It is the sum total of all latent forces and powers which are hidden in men and which lie everywhere around us. Heat, light, electricity, magnetism are the manifestations of Prana. All forces, all powers and Prana spring from the fountain or common source, ‘Atman’. All physical forces, all mental forces come under the category ‘Prana’. It is force on every plane of being, from the highest to the lowest. Whatever moves or works or has life, is but an expression or manifestation of Prana. Akasa or ether also is an expression of Prana. The Prana is related to mind and through mind to will, and through will to the individual soul, and through this to the Supreme Being. If you know how to control the little waves of Prana working through the mind, then the secret of subjugating universal Prana will be known to you. The Yogi who becomes an expert in the knowledge Of this secret, will have no fear from any power, because he has mastery over all the manifestations of powers in the universe.

The process of merging the prana of the being into Brahma prana is accomplished by the Nadies therefore it is essential to have knowledge regarding the Nadies... Here we will describe Nadies which carry the flow of Prana towards Brahamanda and it is given below:

1. Ida. 2. Pingala 3. Sushumna :
i) Sushumna ii)Vajra iii) Chitrini iv) Brahma Nadi.

 

Merging Ida and Pingla into sushumna - First activate Ida and Pingala and then merge them into sushumna... In Agnya chakra both the nadies meet the sushumna nadi, this point is called Triveni of tri-point.

When the pressure of prana increases in sushumna then it transmits the pressure towards the vajra and when the pressure in the vajra become more and it is unable to bear it, the prana enters chitrini and in the end chitrini is also not to cope with the increased pressure of prana and they find their path into the Brahma Nadi.

... the entry of prana into sushumna, chitra, vajra and its expanse in Brahma Nadi depends upon the pressure of prana and exactly like filling the air by pressure through a small whole into the tube. It is therefore necessary to have an adequate store house of prana...

 

The Brahma Nadi arises and is activated from the great toe of the foot. On reaching the Mooladhara. Vajra chitrini and sushumna cover it respectively, therefore this nadi carries pure flow of prana only.


The activation of Brahma nadi and the flow of prana into it is the main aim of Yoga. Brahma nadi helps in the realization of Brahma.
