Upaśānti (उपशान्ति) refers to “peace”, according to the Mokṣopāya (verse 5.54.4-5, 9 and 16).—Accordingly, “[...] Now, when there was occasion (avasara) [to articulate] the next part of Om for the same duration, [that] method of [controlling] the vital airs was named the motionless [retention, i.e.,] Kumbhaka... Then, when there was occasion [to articulate] the third [part] of Om, which bestows peace (upaśānti-da), [that] method [of controlling] the vital airs was named Pūraka because [it] fills [the body with the vitals airs]”.
