Pranayama is control of Breath”. “Prana” is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels Prana represents the Pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and “Ayama” means control. So Pranayama is “Control of Breath”. One can control the rhythms of Pranic energy with Pranayama and achieve healthy “body-mind”.

The entire Eight Limbs of the Patanjali system are also sometimes referred to as Dhyana or the meditative path, although strictly speaking, only the last 4 limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi. The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation:  Meditation starts by being separate from the mind, by being a witness. That is the only way of separating ourselves from anything.

Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our body-mind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions. Active Meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho for the contemporary man.

The activity itself creates the situation in which passivity happens.

Chapter 1 Samadhi Pada (Concentration)

Chapter 2 Sadhana Pada (Practice)

Chapter 4 Kaivalya Pada (Liberation)

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of yoga meditation for self-realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind field, until the jewel of the true Self comes shining through.

When Patanjali codified, or compiled the Yoga Sutras, it was not that a new system was created, but rather, the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely organized and scientific way.
