Again, remember to breathe into your lungs not into your stomach. There is no organ in your stomach absorbs any oxygen. Do not hurry. Do it slowly and slowly. You should rest whenever needed (in any pranayam). The Detailed Method: Prana or air breathed in through left nostril represents energy of the moon, which symbolizes peace and contentment, and has a cooling effect to the mind and body. Hence for purification of Nadis (intestines and veins), beginning of this Pranayama has to be made by the left nostril of your nose. Close the right side of your nostril with the right hand thumb. Intake air slowly through the left nostril till the lungs are filled with the oxygen. Then close the left nostril with the second and third fingers. Open the right nostril and throw air through it. Repeat this exercise slowly in the beginning without rushing, and with practice, increase the speed as you will become more used to it. When you are able to practice this exercise for a long time, inhale with as much force as is possible for you, then exhale also forcefully. This practice of inhalation and exhalation alternatively through the right and left nostril, as indicated above with force, should be done for 3 minutes. If you feel exhausted, rest for sometimes and resume. Regular practice of this exercise will enable you to do this Pranayama for 10 minutes. After some practice, this Pranayama should be done for 5 to 10 minutes daily, depending upon one’s energy levels. But, in summer season it should be done for duration starting from 3 minutes and up to a maximum of 5 minutes only. If you practice this Pranayama for five minutes regularly on a daily basis in your life, the coiled energy and strength called ‘Kundalini Shakti’ lying in the Muladhar Chakra begins to awaken and rejuvinate. This is known as Kundalini Jagran. But while doing this Pranayama, mentally repeat the mantra “OM” so you mind becomes fit for meditation and relaxation.
