As in the ocean's midmost depth no wave is born, but all is still, so let the practitioners be still, be motionless, and nowhere should they swell.
- from the Sutta-Nipata
Sometimes my brother Apollo likes to buggy me and challenge my blissful state of inner peace. I try not to let myself get heated by practicing Seektari Pranayama. From my book:
Seektari Pranayama (hissing breathing) is well known for cooling the body and the mind. Most felines practice hissing breathing when mentally heated, but its physical benefits should not be ignored. With tongue curled and lips pulled back, let out a strong force of hot air. Ahhh...makes one instantly feel calmer and cooler!
