I want to know what the function of brain is.

I'm talking about the physical organ brain not the mind.

What do the sacred texts say about the brain?

    What do you mean by "Brain"? Gross one or Subtle one? Subtle one is called mind.

  • MIND--ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL is a good book by Swami Sivananda.

    There are many questions asked already on Mind, consciousness. Just have a look at them.

  • the 'brain' - not to be confused with the mind - is part of the annamayakosa, the physical body. See - hinduism.stackexchange.com/questions/6758/… Commented Apr 13, 2016 at 8:08
  • Alternate nostril breathing. Check your nostrils. You know, when the left nostril is active then the right brain is active. And vice-versa. The right brain is music. The left brain is logic. So those who have the right nostril active would understand me better. If both are active you are in meditation. However if only the right nostril is active, no meditation happens. Your state changes every time you open and close your eyes. Read a little more here: artofliving.org/meditation/meditation-for-you/… Commented Apr 13, 2016 at 16:09
