Health is indeed wealth. 

Vayu is a Hindu deity, the Lord of the winds and is also known as Anila, Vyāna, Vāta, Tanun, Pavana, and Prāṇa. Vyāna-vāyu mantra is dedicated to Vayu or wind. In this article, Dr Kausthub Desikachar shares the meaning and the benefits of chanting the Vyāna-vāyu mantra.



The union Vyānavāyu is formed from the Sanskrit words Vyāna (‘circulating’) and Vāyu (‘breath’).



Dr Kausthub Desikachar says Vyāna-vāyu is the energy of transporting Prāṇa and nourishment to every bit of the body. To make it simpler, Vyāna-vāyu is the carrier of life force to every cell of our body. Vyāna-vāyu flows through all the nadis of the body (72,000 pathways), thereby correlating all functions of the body. This energy enables information to be transferred back and forth from the brain and senses to the heart centre. Thus, Vayu contributes to overall balance in the body. When vyana is not stable, everything seems out of balance—mentally, emotionally, and physically.
