Lìng Shēng Gŭ Rán
Causing sound that is the Sound of Waves is correct.
Yān Qì Xià Shí Yŏu Shēng Gŭ Gŭ Rán Rú Shùi Lì Kan Wén Zhī Fēn Míng
Swallowing the Qi down brings the sound of gurgling.
It is correct if it seems just like water trickling into a pit or over a bank,
by the sound it is making so distinctly.
Yī Yān Sān Yān
One swallow [then to] three swallows.
Cǐ Yán Yān Qì Shí Yī Yān Zhì Sān Yān Zé Yī Bì Qì Sān Lián Yān
This means that when swallowing the Qi after a time it can be increased
from a single swallow until it reaches three swallows.
So one breath retention along with three successively linked swallows is correct.
