Prana Apana Sushumna Hari
Prana – Life Force
Apana – Great Cleanser of the System
Sushumna -Channel for the Life Force
Hari / Har – Great Creative Infinity
Prana is the life force, and Sushumna is the central channel for that force. This mantra helps draw energy up the spine for healing. Hari and Har are names of God.
When prana and apana flow together through Sushumna – the central passage of the spinal column – to the top of the head, the experience of samadhi takes place, which is the goal of all yogic practice.
