Verso supplementary practice frequently used onesto enable one onesto develop this position is listed mediante Gheranda Samhita, iii, 61: “Make the abdomen look quite hollow just like verso tank

Hatha Yoga Pradipika, iii, 54-9. Complice Gheranda Samhita, iii, 10-11: “Contract the bowels equally above and below the navel towards the back, so that the abdominal viscera may touch the back. [The Great Bird (Breath), by this process, is instantly forced up into the Susumna, and flies (moves) constantly therein only.) Of all Bandhas this is the best. The complete practice of this makes emancipation easy.

Amico Siva Samhita, iv, 48-52: “When the intestines above and below the navel are brought puro the left side, it is called Uddana-Bandha the destroyers of all sins and sorrows. The left side viscera of the abdominal cavity should be brought above the navel. This is Uddana-Bandha, the lion of the elephant of death. The Yogi, who always practises it four times a day, purifies thereby his navel, through which the winds are purified. By practising it for six months, the Yogi certainly conquers death; the gastric fire is kindled, and there takes place an increase of the fluids of the body. Through this, consequently, the Vigrahasiddhi (power of expansion) is also obtained. All the diseases of the Yogi are certainly destroyed by it. Having learnt the method from the Asceta, the wise Yogi should practise it with great care. The most inaccessible Mudra should be practised per verso retired and undisturbed place.”

There are special techniques for overcoming these obstacles

This is called by adepts the Nauli Karma. It removes dyspepsia, increases appetite and digestion, and is like the goddess of creation and causes happiness. It dries up all the disorders. This Nauli is an excellent exercise con Hatha Yoga.” Instead of this practice, Gheranda Samhita, i, 52, gives another practice: “With great force move the stomach and intestines from one side sicuro the other. This is called Lauliki-Yoga. This destroys all diseases and increases the bodily fire.” I was taught lauliki as given here. It can be used by individuals who are physically unable puro learn nauli as I have described it. There are times when lauliki is quite satisfactory, but the student should endeavour puro specializzazione nauli, which is one of the fundamental requirements for those who wish sicuro proceed preciso the more advanced practices.

This would be analogous sicuro a point where verso number of electric wires converge before being distributed.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika, ii, 59-67. Compare Gheranda Samhita, v, 75-7: “As the bellows of the ironsmith constantly dilate and contract, similarly let him slowly draw in the air by both nostrils and expand the stomach; then throw it out quickly (the wind making sound like bellows). Having thus inspired and expired quickly twenty times, let him perform Kumbhaka; then let him expel it by the previous method. Let the wise one perform this Bhastrika (bellows-like) Kumbhaka thrice; he will never suffer from any disease and will be always healthy.”
