Pranayama a yogic Exercise during  SAndhya Vandhana- Post on International Yoga day

    Hope all of you  are aware of the Joke ”Vadhyar told  the  NRI Iyer. Mooka pidiyungo(Catch the nose) . That NRI  immediately caught   hold of the nose of   the Vadhyar. This catching  of the nose  is a prelude for a great  Yogic exercise  called Pranayama  (Control of  Life giving breath) .I would like a few words about it:-        

Today is  the International Yoga day  . On this day  I wish to point out  that every Brahmin  during two Sandhya Vandhana   and Madhyahneeka is supposed to  do 36 times Pranayama .This Pranayama   is really a yogic exercise, if we do it properly :-
Pranayama  Procedure :-
Sit on the floor   assuming the lotus pose(Padmasana  preferable)
Hold both Nostrils with Thumb and the little and third finger of the hands and recite the following Manthra:-
   Close right nostril with  thumb and inhale   slowly through  Left nostril (Pooraka) and chant without moving the lips

Om Bhoo
Om Bhuva
Ogum Suva
Om Maha
Om Jana
Om Thapa
Ogum Sathyam
Close both nostrils  and do not breath  (Khumbaka) and chant without moving the lips

Om Tat savithur varenyam Bargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yona prachodayath
Close  Left nostril   with  Little and third finger   and leave Exhale    slowly and chant  (Rechaka)  without moving the lips

Om Apa
Jyothj rasa
Amrutham brahma
Bhoorbuvasuvarom
Then do the inner  cleaning 

Touch the ears three times saying
Om, Om, Om

Manthra in Sanskrit:-
भूः भुवः ओग्ं सुवः महः जनः तपः ओग्ं स॒त्यम्
तथ्स॑वि॒तुर्वरे॓ण्यं॒ भर्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि
धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचोदया॓त्
ओमापो॒ ज्योती॒ रसो॒‌உमृतं॒ ब्रह्म॒ भू-र्भुव॒-स्सुव॒रोम्
