WORLD IS A PLAY AND DISPLAY OF PRANA (Life force)
You know, this whole universe is a play of Prana, the life force. Everything here has some life force. However, the units of Prana differ. Stone (Pathar) has 1 unit of Prana Water (Pani) has 2 units of Prana Fire (Agni) has 3 units of Prana Air(Hava) has 4 units of Prana Ether (Akash) has 5 units of Prana Animals and trees have 6 – 7 units of Prana
Human Being has 8 units of Prana. Hence he is called as ASHTAVASU. But humans are born with a possibility to blossom into a fully blossomed state. Lord Krishna has highest units of Prana – 16. That is why He is referred to as fully blossomed being.
