ABOUT THE ART

Pencil on Bristol Paper

Prāṇa is the Sanskrit word which means 'life force' or the invisible cosmic energy which is responsible for the body's life, heat and maintenance. Every cell of the body is animated by Prāṇa, which is the fuel for all energy, motion, and consciousness. It is the life-sustaining force of both the individual body and the universe. Prāṇa Pravāh (flow of cosmic energy) happens through a network of channels or meridians called nadis. It is with this energy, that a person can attain liberation from the cycle of life and death.

The following passage from the work 'Raja Yoga' by Vivekananda explains it as such:

By what power is this Akasha manufactured into this universe? By the power of Prāṇa. Just as Akasha is the infinite, omnipresent material of this universe, so is this Prāṇa the infinite, omnipresent manifesting power of this universe. At the beginning and at the end of a cycle everything becomes Akasha, and all the forces that are in the universe resolve back into the Prāṇa: in the next cycle, out of this Prāṇa is evolved everything that we call energy, everything that we call force. It is the Prāṇa that is manifesting as motion, it is the Prāṇa that is manifesting as gravitation, as magnetism. It is the Prāṇa that is manifesting as the actions of the body, as the nerve currents, as the thought force. From thought down to the lowest force, everything is but the manifestation of Prāṇa. The sum total of all forces in the universe, mental or physical, when resolved back to their original state, is called Prāṇa.
