इन्द्रियाणां मनो नाथो मनोनाथस्तु मारुतः । मारुतस्य लयो नाथः स लयो नादमाश्रितः ॥२९॥

हठयोग प्रदीपिका (अध्याय ४, श्लोक २९)

Indriyānām mano nātho manonāthastu mārutah
Mārutasya layo nāthah sa layo nādamāśritah

Hatha Yoga Pradipika (Chapter 4, Verse 29)

“The Mind (मन) is the master of Senses (इन्द्रि), and the Breath (मारुत) is the master of the Mind. Rhythm (लय), which in turn depends on the vibrations (नाद) of respiration (inhalation/exhalation), masters the Breath.”
