Yoga (school of philosophy)

Source: Wisdom Library: Yoga

Nāsā (नासा) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “nose”. It is one of the fourteen Adhyātma (pertaining to the body) mentioned in the Subālopaniṣad (fifth section). The corresponding Ādhibhūta (pertaining to the elements) is called ghrātavya (the odoriferous) and the corresponding Adhidaivata (presiding deity) is pṛthivī (the earth). Accordingly, “the nādis form their bond (or connect them). He who moves in the nose (nāsā), in the odoriferous (ghrātavya), in the earth (pṛthivī), in the nādis, in prāṇa, in vijñāna, in ānanda, in the ākāśa of the heart and within all else—That is Ātman. It is that which should be worshipped. It is without old age, death, fear, sorrow or end.”
