Lifetrons is an English word coined by 20th century guru and yogi Paramahansa Yogananda to describe the vital life-force energy known by the Sanskrit name prana. He described lifetrons as “intelligent life energy in the body.”
According to Yogananda, the building blocks of life, atoms, come from electrons and protons, which themselves are created from lifetrons. Lifetrons come from “thoughtrons of the Infinite.” Imbalances in the lifetrons leads to physical, spiritual and emotional illness. For healing, Yogananda said, the yogi invokes God’s help to correct the imbalances.
