Thirty Minor Upanishads 5 The vyāhṛṭis are Bhūḥ, Bhuvaḥ, etc., and the head is Om, Āpo, etc. 6 Lit., car-circle which is a mystical chakra or diagram for invoking the ḍevaṭā; but some commentators make raṭha mean Om: and maṇdala, the circle of Śiva. 7 There are four openings in the body; three from which the astral, the lower mental and the higher mental bodies escape: the last being of ṭurya. 8 As measured by the width of the middle finger: Yājñavalkya says, Prāṇa is 12 digits beyond the body. 9 One commentator makes it thus: Taking 21,600 for each of the five Prāṇas, we get 1,08,000: for the five sub-prāṇas, 5 × 1036 is 5,180. Hence the total is 1,13,180. Another commentator makes it 21,600 alone.
