Compassion and Understanding

Ardhachandra Mudra: The right hand in "Abhaya Hasta, " the fear-removing, blessing and protecting hand gesture, and the left hand in "Varadaa, " the hand gesture of granting boons, material and spiritual wealth.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The force of the intellectual area of the mind is controlled and transmuted through the power of a regulated breath. A beginning pranayama is a method of breathing nine counts as we inhale, holding one; nine counts as we exhale, holding one count.
