sarva roga samaraha
(HADAYOGA PRADEEPIKA ?)
Pranayama is a serious business.
It can cure all the disease.. if practiced well.
But if practiced wrong.. it could create trouble..
RAMANA MAHARSHI says
Pranayama keeps the control of the mind, only while on that in practice.. that instant..
As you are out of pranayama ;;
It is like the bird in the nest.. that flies away !!!
All the 8 steps in the YOGA
(in contradiction to what generally people understand by Yoga as Yogasana)
Understand all these to reach to the real level on Meditation / Samadhi .. under a learned practitioner (GURU)
Instead of the capsule TV yoga treatment..
