What is Prana and how does it work.

Free Vedic astrology article 

In its broadest sense, Prana means the force or energy. According to Vedic or Hindu philosophy, all creation is energy or force because force is nothing but expression of energy. In this sense, energy pervades the universe. The space around us that appears to be empty is in reality a seething cauldron of energy. Before we go further I want to quote some modern western scientific literature on this subject

 “When physicists began to study the quantum theory of fields, they discovered that a vacuum was not all what it had long appeared to be – just

empty space devoid of substance and activity. …… What might appear to be empty space is a seething ferment of virtual particles. A vacuum is not inert and featureless, but alive and throbbing with energy. A real particle like an electron must always be viewed against this background.
“Empty space does not appear a very promising subject for study, yet it hold the key to a fuller understanding of the forces of nature.” Writes Paul Davies Ph.D. in Superforce (New York-Simon and Schuster, 1984.).

Fritjof Capra writes in The Tao of Physics (Boston-Shambhala, Third Edition 1991) “The field theories of modern Physics force us to abandon the

classic distinction between Material particles and the void,” Einstein’s field theory of gravity and quantum field theory both show that particles can‘t

be separated from space surrounding them. On the one hand they determine the structure of that space, whilst on the other hand they can not be regarded as isolated entities, but have to be seen as condensation of a continuous field which is present throughout the space….

“The field exists always and everywhere. It can never be removed. It is the carrier of all material phenomena….. Being and fading of particles are merely forms of motion of the field.”

“The distinction between matter and empty space finally had to be abandoned when it became evident that virtual particles can come into being spontaneously out of the void, and vanish again into the void…. According to field theory, events of that kind happen all the time. The vacuum is far

from empty. On the contrary it contains an innumerable number of particles which come into being and vanish without end…. The physical vacuum…..contains the potentiality for all forms of the particulate world.  These forms, in turn are not independent physical entities but merely

transient manifestations of the underlying void…. The discovery of the dynamic quality of the vacuum is seen by many physicists as one of the most important findings of the modern physics.”
It is a mouthful but in short it means that space is not empty but is composed of energy. It is not an empty room where an electric bulb is shining. It is a room which exists because of that light. 

This is beautifully summed by this gem of a Sanskrit Shlok. The unmanifested universe is full, the manifested universe is also full. After taking out full from the full what remains is also full.
