Translation

He should press the nasal chamber with his right hand only and should (then) gradually expel the Pingala breath.

Filling the air through the Ida of sixteen measures, he should hold the filled-in air (by Kumbhaka) of sixty-four

measures and expel the Pingala breath well to the extent of thirty-two measures. In this manner should the

(breathing) operation be repeated again and again, in the inverse and direct order.
