Mantra is the sound-body of a god; Yantra depicts the sound-body in a diagram. Mantra = (Man = to think or meditate + Tra = to protect or liberate.) Yantra = instrument, engine, apparatus, amulet with mystical diagram endowed with protective occult powers. Sanskrit letters are strung together like a wheel called Matrikachakra. You know A is the first letter and Z is the last letter. All Sanskrit letters are sacred. The first letter is 'a' (अ) and the last letter is h (ह्) ; 'a' is dynamic Siva starting creation and 'h' is resting Siva in that creation has come to a standstill. The first letter and the last letter encompass all the letters between them. Letters 'a' and 'ha' are combined with a terminal 'm' resulting in 'Aham', which is the Mantra of Siva. All the vowels abide in Siva; all the consonants from ka to sa abide in Sakti and thus Her Mantra is Ksa. Below you will see Mantra Hamsa; Ha (ह the vowel) is Siva and Sa (स the consonant) is Sakti.

Assume Padmasana Pose. Think of Hawaiian Hang Loose Pose of the right hand. Extend the
thumb, the ring finger and the pinky; fold the index and the middle fingers. The right thumb
serves to occlude the right nostril and the combined ring finger and pinky occlude the left
nostril. It takes a little practice to get it right.

Occlude the right nostril with the right thumb and take a deep breath through the left nostril until
you cannot breath any further.
Occlude the left nostril with the combined ring finger and pinky and breath out slowly through
the open right nostril.
The time ratio between inhalation and exhalation is 1: 2.

Now take a deep breath through the right nostril by occluding the left nostril, followed by
exhalation through the left nostril.
This completes one cycle of Anuloma-Viloma.
The next step to learn is to hold the breath between Inhalation and Exhalation by occluding both
nostrils. This is Anuloma-Viloma with Kumbhaka. Kumbhaka = retention of breath.
Inhalation and Retention (Kumbhaka) are of equal duration.
Assume any posture that makes you comfortable. Practice Anuloma-Viloma for a few months
and feel at ease with the practice; later you can go on to Anuloma-Viloma with Kumbhaka.
