"Via the lotus-stem-thread of the mouth, relinquish breath - meaning: make it Still; in this way - via the sushumna path, it becomes Still like this spontaneously. This is the indication of 'kumbhak' - meaning: vayu moves in Stillness via the sushumna; that is the state of kumbhak."
~ Lahiri Baba from Amritabindu 13
"Sreshtha uttamanga [the greatest and principal part of the body] (mouth)* brahmin" - when there is samadhi; the abode of all happiness is "swarga" [heaven]; when one performs Kriya, one is a "brahmin"; from that Mouth - Lord (Purushottama).**
[*and**Translator's note: The parentheses and the text within them are in the original.]
~ Lahiri Baba from Manu 1:93
