Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prana
Your pranic body and your auric body must coincide to keep you young and alive. That’s where youth is. If you take half an hour to forty-five minutes to do a good set of Kundalini Yoga, that will keep you going.
It is the pranic body which makes the cells change and every seventy-two hours the entire body’s cells change to become a new body.
Prana is the power of God which comes through you with the air.
The Summer Solstice is one day when the sun is at its ecstasy and the power of prana is the maximum so that you can be enriched with that vital primal force so that your destiny can be rewritten.
As long as prana comes in and prana goes out fifteen times per minute on average, you are awakened and awakening. A person who can breathe one breath a minute can multiply life fifteen times—no matter what your disease or state of affairs is. Ultimately, it’s the prana which is God. Once you get to that you become God yourself. Man has that capacity in that velocity of circumstances to create that frequency in the electromagnetic field.
Why are you self-destructive? Because you do not have control of your prana. Why you don’t have control of your prana? Because you don’t call on your impersonal. You always call on your personal. Personal is very limited; personal is controlled by ego. Impersonal is controlled by your Divinity. When you call your personal it’s duality; when you call your impersonal it is Divinity. Divinity is Infinity.
Any breath you take automatically, you waste your prana. Every breath you take consciously, you enhance your prana, and that enhances your vitality.
Use the breath of life for your own advantage. Without breath of life—prana—you cannot live. Why not use the same basic element energy for strength and power? If you breathe 21 – 24 breaths a minute, you can be so weak. You can’t carry your weight. If you breathe three breaths a minute, you can be so strong, nobody can face you.
The knowledge of your prana is your knowledge of your guidance. You should be grateful and graceful for every breath.
In the case where your thoughts are not clear and you are not in a position to put your spirit, soul, prana, God behind your thoughts, they will not have the impact.
Your every action is being reported with your prana in and out. When the breath comes in, it energizes you; when it goes out, it takes a mental picture of you and loads it into the master computer.
Now you have to basically understand our body is based on prana and prana enters our body through the breath of life. Air is not prana. Air is the medium for prana. Some people think air is the prana. No, air is the medium for prana and because of this graceful medium we live and God has made lungs. They are like two big mangoes hanging with one cord—biggest organ in the body. The purpose is to clean the air, take out of it the pranic energy and the oxygen both. Oxygen purifies the blood, gives back its red corpuscles. The prana gives the life. All movements in the body are because of the prana. If only oxygen can do it, then every problem is solved. Then all we have to do is put a cylinder of oxygen at the back of a person, he will live. No. It doesn’t work that way…The contact of the cosmic body, which we call the subtle body or auric body, with the physical body is very unique. But if your lung capacity shrinks, the rate of oxygen you can take in will shrink. Therefore, clean blood will be less. Less clean blood will expose you to infections.
Breath of life is a privilege. When consciously you breathe, it gives you prosperity, it gives you projection, it gives you personality, because it adds to your aura and you expand. That’s why we call it pranayam. And one of the longest breaths is breath of fire. As long as you can breathe continuously it is one breath. If you breathe for one hour it’s one breath. So with breath of fire not only do you expand your aura, your personality, and your power of projection, you also expand your life.
You don’t live by years, you live by breath of life. As many breaths you are granted, when they finish you go.
The most important thing in your life in order to change your prosperity and your purpose is the breath of life. Start where God is, start where life is. Life is in the breath of life.
When the soul was given the body according to the karma and samskaras, it was also given X amount of breath and for that many breaths you will live. That soul can come back and merge in God, if all those breaths are lived consciously. But any unconscious waste of breath has to be recuperated from the same source of the Almighty and go again through the cycle of nine hundred sixty million lifetimes to experience perfection. That is how precious the breath of life is. That is how precious this human time and space is. That’s how precious this being is. Each breath is a gift, an extension of God itself. If you ignore the Giver—if I give you a present every day, and every day you ignore it, one day I will stop.
Are you so sensitive and so sensible that you take each breath of life as a gift of God.
Have you developed your mind in gratitude to God so that when you breathe in, you say, “Wow,” and when you breathe out, you say, “Wow”?
You are alive because of the breath of life. Use the breath of life in a slow potency to heal you, your mind, and to brighten your soul.
It can heal all, because it’s the breath of life, which is the spirit in you, which is the soul in you, which is actually you, alive.
Get friendly with your support system—the breath of life—your life system, your energy, your power, your grit. It is you in you. Introduce and shake hands with it; feel it, touch it, be it.
The link between you and God is through the breath of life. The breath of life can communicate for you. It’s a messenger, a messiah in you. It’s a link, it connects and it works. It is sacred.

The body is a continous process of life. If the breath of life is not valued, life will not be valuable.
God gives the breath of life. You give the breath of life to others through your smiles and through your compassion, through your care, through your kindness.
In the routine of life, let us not forget the Giver of the breath of life, the great gift of life, and let’s be kind to every movement, every step we take.
The Universe works in many ways, like water in the ocean is heated the sun and travels across the skies and touches the mountains and then comes back into brooks and rivulets and rivers and goes back. The cycle is complete on the earth, the water, the air, the winds. It continues and intermixes in the same way your prana and someone else’s prana are the same link. Your prana or someone else’s prana—there is no difference. The shape of the body is different, but inside there is no difference. You are breathing the same prana. It is like air-conditioning. It’s a main pipe through which there are exit pipes and they keep the whole house cool. Similarly, the pranic life which comes to you is also delivered to others, there is no difference.
That’s how yogis extend their life—by practicing one breath a minute. When you practice one breath a minute, then you become Pavan Guru—you become the light and knowledge of the prana, and then you know the Universe, the Universe knows you.
