What is Svaroday / Swar vigyan -
With the development of the human civilization different branches of knowledge also developed and came into existence. Swar vigyan is also one of them. Swar vigyan is related to inhaling ( taking or breating air into the lungs ) and exhaling ( taking out air from the lungs ). In other words swar vigyan is a science of breathing.
Kinds of Swar - There are three types of Swar. They are 1. Surya Swar 2. Chandra Swar 3. Sushuman Swar.
What is Surya Swar - When the right nostril is running ( i.e. taking air in and taking air out from the right nostril ), it is called Surya Swar.
What is Chandra Swar - When the left nostril is running ( i.e. taking air in and taking air out through left nostril ), it is called Chandra Swar.
Sushumana Swar - When both the right nostril and the left nostril run ( i.e. taking air in and taking air out through both the nostrils together ), it is called Sushumana Swar.
How to know or examine which of the swar is running - Put your finger on your left nostril and press it slightly, and find out if the air is coming out and going into your lungs easily through your right nostril ( if it is so ) it means your right nostril is running. and if you find difficult to take air in and take air out through right nostril, it means your right nostril is not running.
Repeat the same process by putting  your finger on your right nostril and find out whether your left nostril is running or not.
By doing so you will be able to know which of your swars is running or active or on.
