Pranayama is an exact science. Regulation of breathing as a matter of fact is natural. It hardly offers any scope of artificiality. The breath enters through the nose and depending on ones general health and strength of the lungs it is retained inside and then is exhaled. This natural condition of intake and outflow of the breath goes on continuously and it is on this process that human life depends. The difference between this natural process and the Pranayama is that in the former the inhalation and exhalation is not necessarily connected with the mind that process continues owing to the natural functioning of the heart and lungs. The inhalation and the exhalation are hence not of any set duration. In some person the inhalation may take a longer time than the exhalation and in some others the opposite may occur. In Pranayama however there is a systematic regulation of both the inhalation and exhalation. This is for the reason that the mind is joined to the action of inhalation and exhalation known as Puraka and Rechaka respectively in practicing the Pranayama. Hence their longer and shorter duration within a specified time has to be controlled. The result of this controlled inhalation and exhalation both in respect of speed and time has a mere beneficial effect on the mind and the body than that of the natural process. Most of us who largely depend on the natural process will derive immense benefit on falling ill by controlled inhalation and exhalation. Such person should inhale slowly and exhale equally slowly in the beginning for 5 to 10 times depending on their strength and continue doing this morning and evening for 25 to 30 day. The natural inhalation is hence called SWASHANA or breathing and that inhalation and exhalation which is done extending time limit by applying the power of mind is called DEERGHASWASHANA or Pranayama.
