What is Prana?

The Prana is the expression of the vital life force which exists in all things, whether animate or inanimate.

Prana is something that flows continuously from somewhere inside us, filling us and keeping us alive. Our state of mind is closely related to the quality of Prana within ourselves.

We can influence the quality of Prana through our breath and by controlling our breathing; we can change our state of mind.

To control the quality of the Prana within, Yogis have a particular practice called pranayama which literally means Breath control.  However, it is more a conscious breathing method by which the life force can be activated or regulated when the breath is expanded or paused. By focusing on the breath, the mind quietens down and we experience clarity.

As BKS Iengar explained:" Prana enters the body only when there is a positive change in the mind. We should not imagine that as we breathe in, Prana simply flows into us."

On that point Chinese and Indians differ, what Chinese mean by Ki is not exactly the same as what Indians mean by Prana.
