Deities, Mantras and Prana
During this Father’s Day satsang at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville, Swami Satchidananda speaks about Father-Mother-God and the symbolism and meaning behind various deities in the Hindu faith, including Ardhanarishwara, Nataraja, Shakti and Vishnu.He also gives an in-depth explanation of the Gayatri mantra and the Nada (sound) Yoga science behind various mantras.
Sri Gurudev also answers various questions on the nature of prana and refining aspects of one’s pranayama practice such as length of inhalation, exhalation and visualization of the flow of energy:
“You can direct your prana. If there is any problem in the body, you can inhale and send the prana there and hold it there to deactivate the problem and then exhale. You are mentally directing the prana.”
