They were both disinclined to do so, and largely unable. Yet their efficacy in the world was no less.

As for more coherent teaching, it is the province the strong devotees, the advanced yogis, and the partially awakened. A rare exception to this was my guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, who continued to write coherent texts even after he had attained the state of nirvikalpa samadhi.

But this is very rare. Now, chidakasha gita the utterance above: All people in the natural state breathe up and down without any restraint.

Nityananda is NOT saying he disapproves of pranayama or the restraint of breath.

Pranayama was the very water he swam in. Nityananda's belly was, in fact, large because of the continuous holding of the chidakasha gita in both intentional and spontaneous kumbhaka. One of the yogic kriyas his chief chidakasha gita Muktananda experienced was the stout expulsion of the breath, then holding it within in what's called the chalice with the jalandhara bhanda chin lock.

Chidakasha Gita of Bhagawan Nityananda Chapter 1

This was no doubt a characteristic kriya of Nityananda's as well. He thus had a pot belly from much holding of the breath lifelong. So no, this verse does not mean "don't ever hold the breath" or "keep breathing just as you've done since birth. Nityananda is stating that in chidakasha gita the inner, pranic breath we must come to be able to breathe it without any lack or restraint just like the ordinary air-breath; that the inner breath is not fully mastered until it feels as easy, unobstructed, full and natural as the natural air-breath.

First a decreasing need to breath the gross air-breath, then finally no need for long periods of quiet mind.

Nityananda often made a sound like "Hnnn, hnnn. These were exhalations while already little or no air was in his lungs.


He did this to keep the air expelled from his lungs in the state of kumbhaka. This is another of the yogic kriyas chidakasha gita bodily movements that arises spontaneously for devotees who have a bhakti attitude for a satguru plus chastity and a meditation technique. Drawing the breath upwards is puraka; stopping the breath is kumbhaka.

He states the well-known fact that kumbhaka means stoppage of the breath, then states that we should attain that as our real seat or the true yogic asana. Nityananda is saying that the state of kumbhaka, or cessation of material breath air, oxygen, etc.

Breathing out is rechaka. While breathing in, it should be like drawing water from a well. Draw the breath up to the brahmarandhra in the brain. By such a breathing, kindle the fire of chidakasha gita.

Burn the three humors vatha, pitha and kapha in this fire. Here Nityananda is referring to conventional breathing, especially that conventional air-breathing done in a chidakasha gita context.

He is extolling pranayama in general. One of the venerable commentators on the Yoga-Sutra stated that "there is no purifier like pranayama. It chidakasha gita the three humors, of you like "three humors" metaphysics. It burns up whatever you need to burn! His reference to "drawing chidakasha gita from a well" touches on two things:
