The technique of pranayama is thought to transform the natural
processes already at work in the body. Actually every living
creature breathes the prayer "So' ham" ("He am I") with each
inward breath, and "Hamsah" ("I am He, the immortal Spirit") with
each outgoing breath. This unconscious repetitive prayer goes on
throughout life, and is to be brought into full consciousness
through the discipline that begins with breathing.
