Ha signifies the sun and ṭha the moon. The sun is the symbol of the expression of energy and the moon is that of the conservation of the same. Two grand processes are constantly at work in our bodies, one in which the energy is spent and the other in which the energy is acquired and conserved. The energy-consuming force is manifested by the sun principle and the energy-building force by the moon principle. Ha˛ha Yoga is that form of Yoga in which concentration is acquired through the normalization and union of these two principles by breath control.

Again take the illustration of the falling of water, as it is released drop by drop from a vessel full of water. If the control mechanism is removed, then the flow of water will be continuous, without any break, in one stream instead of falling down in drops. Dhāraṇ ā develops into dhyāna. Here the image is continuous. Now the mind has been educated not to throw away a particular image but retain it.
