Prana is the Great Breath. It is the Cosmic Christ. Prana is the life that palpitates within every atom, as it palpitates in every sun.

Fire burns because of Prana. Water flows because of Prana. Wind blows because of Prana. The sun exists because of Prana; the life we have is Prana. Nothing can exist in the universe without Prana.

It is impossible for the most insignificant insect to be born, or for the smallest flower to bloom without Prana. Prana exists in the food that we eat, in the air that we breathe, and in the water that we drink. Prana exists within everything.

When seminal energy is refined and totally transformed, the nervous system is provided with the richest type of Prana. This rich Prana is deposited within the brain in the form of pure Christic energy, the Wine of Light.

An intimate connection exists between the mind, the Prana and the semen. We can gain dominion over the mind and Prana by controlling the seminal energy with the force of willpower.

Those people who spill the semen can never gain control over their mind, let alone Prana. Their efforts to gain control over their mind and over Prana will undoubtedly fail.

People who gain sexual control, also gain control of their minds and control of their Prana. These types of human beings reach true liberation. These types of human beings attain the Elixir of Long Life.

All of those immortal beings that live with the Divine Christ Babaji, yogi of India, conserve their physical bodies for thousands of years. Death cannot do anything against them. These beings attained supreme Chastity. This is how they achieved control of the mind and Prana.

Prana is universal energy; it is life, light, and joy.

The principal objective of the practice of pranayama is to obtain the union of solar atoms and lunar atoms, which are found within the seminal system, and consequently to awaken the Kundalini.

The mantras of pranayama are TON – SA – HAM; TON – RA - HAM. With this pranayama, the Kundalini can be awakened.

With pranayama we can come out of the darkness and become illuminated. With this pranayama we can disintegrate laziness and dullness.

Prana is related with the mind. The mind is the vehicle of willpower. Willpower must obey the Great Soul of the Word. Our internal vehicles must be controlled by pranayama.

Prana is life.

The right nasal cavity (nostril) is solar. The left nasal cavity is lunar. The two witnesses of the Book of Revelation are related to the nasal cavities. The two witnesses are a pair of nervous cords. The testicles (or ovaries in women) are united with the nasal cavities through these two nervous cords. We can say that the two cords begin in the testicles (or ovaries). The two testicles are the two oceans of Life. Moses found his Master between the two oceans.

In this chapter, we have taught Egyptian pranayama for the devotees of the occidental world.

Those who want to awaken their Kundalini must persevere in pranayama and Sexual Magic daily throughout their entire life.

The room for the practice of pranayama must not be humid, poorly ventilated, or unclean. The room should be pure, clean, and neat.

Pranayama can be practiced in the country, in the mountains, and on the shores of lakes, rivers and seas. With pranayama, we transmute the sexual energy into Christic energy.

With pranayama and Sexual Magic, we awaken the Kundalini and the chakras completely.

Pranayama is a system of sexual transmutation for single persons.
