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. Ajapa breathing controls repulsion and involves concentrating on sound.
