Vayu is the life – “praana” for the entire creation. Without “Praana” life will become stand still. The existence of a person is due to “Praana Shakthi”. Vayu Deva is unequaled in knowledge (Tatwajnana), Hari bhakti, Dhairya (firmness), Sthairya (Steadiness), Parakrama(valour), Vega (switness), Laaghava (brevity), Panditya (scholarship), Patutwa (skill proficiency), Prabhutwa (Lordship), Shooratwa (Heroism, Valour) as well as bhala (strength). Therefore he is no doubt the energiser of this entire creation.
