Ajapa derives from the 9 ancient Brahma Rishis, also called Prajapati meaning progenitors of the human race. It is a meditation and breathing technique.[citation needed]

Method[edit]

Ajapa refers to the method discovered and developed to answer questions such as: who am I? and what is the world?

It has been developed into the breathing/meditation technique called Ajapa Yoga. Ajapa means: 'a' - not; 'japa' - repeated, meaning something which goes on by itself without conscious repetition - like breathing. It has also been described as that which remains after the elimination of repulsion. Repulsion is expansion, like exhalation; attraction is contraction, like inhalation.[citation needed] Ajapa breathing controls repulsion and involves concentrating on sound.
