Control of Speech, Part 3

Gurudeva gives a short but powerful conclusion to his Talk about Talking. He describes how the control of speech relates to the transmutation of sexual energies. And he summarizes the key points about effective speech, adding a story showing how unshakeable knowledge through realization is. Two days back on TAKA you will find a more complete text summary of this talk.

The force of the intellectual area of the mind is controlled and transmuted through the power of a regulated breath. A beginning pranayama is a method of breathing nine counts as we inhale, holding one; nine counts as we exhale, holding one count.
