- The Science of Nasal Breathing
is Swara Yoga?
The word SWARA in Sanskrit,
means sound or musical note; it also means the continuous
flow of air through one nostril. And we all know
that YOGA means union. So Swara Yoga is the science
which is about the realization of cosmic consciousness,
through the awareness or observation, then control
or manipulation of the flow of breath in the nostrils.
Swara yoga is an
ancient science existing since before the Vedic
period, over ten thousand years ago. It was a secret
science, only available for the select few, especially
kings and dedicated seekers. It was kept as a closed
secret by the ancient sages and saints who had intuitively
received this knowledge from the Divine.
Swara yoga is a
tantric science coming from the Agama Shastras and
from Shaiva Tantra, where Lord Siva is the guru
and Shakti is the disciple She asks questions about
nature and the governing forces of the universe.
Lord Siva gives this precious knowledge of swara
yoga to Shakti.
Swara yoga involves
the systematic study of the breath flow through
the nostrils (or swara) in relation to the prevailing
phases of the moon, time of day and direction .
Although we think of 'pranayama' when we think of
techniques associated with the breath, in Swara
yoga, it is the association of the breath in relation
to the activities or phases or positions of the
sun, moon, planets, seasons, time of day, with the
physical and mental conditions of the individual
and then taking the appropriate action according
to these subtle relations. For example, knowing
the moon phases and checking the flow of your nostrils
before you get out of bed in the morning and letting
the corresponding foot be the first to touch the
floor and make the first step, is a simple practice
that ensures success in everything that happens
for that day. The first foot to touch the ground
will get the prevailing 'successful' flow of energy
from the cosmos.
What are the
advantages of learning Swara Yoga?
The swara yoga practices
related to breath were used to understand the governing
forces of life, to understand the nature of the
universe and effects of the elements on body
and mind by observing the different patterns
of breath. Further, it was used to go beyond the
limitations of the mind.
The fascinating thing about Swara yoga is that just
by being aware of the swara (dominant nostril) in
relation to the environment, you can manipulate
the results of what you are about to do. In other
words, you can find out which is going to be the
successful route and then follow it. It can be as
simple as checking your nostrils before setting
out of the house, noting the direction you wish
to go in and then choosing the appropriate foot
with which you will make your first step, to ensure
success and positive outcomes for everything that
