पदात्तस्मादपानोऽयं खादेति समनन्तरम् ।
बाह्याकाशोन्मुखः प्राणो वहत्यग्निशिखा यथा ॥ ३२ ॥

padāttasmādapāno'yaṃ khādeti samanantaram |
bāhyākāśonmukhaḥ prāṇo vahatyagniśikhā yathā || 32 ||

The prana or exhaling breath runs towards the open air, in the form of a flame of fire, and the inhaled breath turns inward to the region of the heart, and goes downward like a current of water.
