So, can we say that the vital breath that moves in the human body is the final link to the Supreme breath that moves in the Universe? Can we ask that question?
You (Prana) are the chief bearer of offerings to the gods; you are the first offering to the ancestors! You are the Truth that the great Rishis practice. You are Indra, the Lord of the senses. You are Rudra, the destroyer; you are Vishnu, the protector; you move in the atmosphere as the Sun, the Lord of lights; and you are the rain; when it rains, these creatures breathe and live in a state of bliss, knowing that there will be food according to their desire.
Vratyas Tvam Praanai Karshhi Ratta Vishvasya Satpatihi, Vayam Adyasya Dattarah Pita Tvam Matarishva Nah.
You are ever pure. Oh! You are the ekarshi fire, the consumer of everything. Prana, life, the eater, the real Lord of all, we are the givers of what is to be eaten. Oh! All pervading air, the breath, you are our Father.
Then it says: That form of yours, which is well established in the speech, in the ear and in the eye, which exists continuously in the mind, make that auspicious, do not go away!
“All this is under your control–Prana, the Supreme life–which is well established in the three worlds. Protect us as a mother protects her sons, grant to us prosperity and wisdom.”
