Ashraya praan shareer hai, chalat phirat bal paay |
Jeev praan se prithak kar, pranak mukta karaay ||
Word Meaning: (Ashray) dependent (prithak kar) to separate
Purport: This body is dependent on Prana. It is through Prana that the soul runs this body. The soul desires to blink eyes, swing hand, walk, talk, etc and it is the forces of Prana that mechanically provide the motion to achieve all of these. The role of prana is not only in providing the forces to the parts of the body but it also plays a role in pushing the soul out of the body and in providing liberation.
