From Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"

II.50. BAHYABHYANTARA-STAMBHA-VRTTIR DESAKALA-SAMKHYABHIH PARIDRSTO DIRGHASUKSMAH.

'"Pranayama" is inhalation, exhalation or retention of breath; it is regulated by place, time and number, and (becomes progressively) prolonged and subtle'.

Commentary:
Here all the variations in 'pranayama' are given, each yielding a different result. With practice, each breath and retention is prolonged and made more silent, and yogi develops more control and contraction.
