In Prana Resides Truth

Swami Kuvalyananda stated his primary objective thus: “The main effort of the Kaivalyadhama is in scientifically probing the human mind and to dig deeper and deeper in the inner space, till the effort to conquer the outer and inner spaces converge and ultimately meet to solve the riddle of the cosmos.”

Author Joseph S. Alter takes the idea a little further: “The more yoga is subject to science, and the closer one gets to discovering the nature of prana, the more powerful yoga becomes as a means by which to discover truth.”

From the third chapter of Alter’s book, Yoga in Modern India: The Body Between Science and Philosophy (Princeton University Press: 2004), p. 101.
