I have brought to you a package of seven simple breathing exercises, These are enough to tackle all diseases". "The healthy can practise for two hours daily while the sick will have to put in more efforts". He urged the people to be moderate in their attempts and not over exert. He asked them to reduce medication as their health improved and not to stop medications all of a sudden. He also prescribed some simple stretching exercises to exercise the whole body.
"Do not go in for medication," was his constant refrain. "Whether it is allopathy, ayurveda or homeopathy, medicines should be the last resort if you wish for permanent relief. You cannot achieve good health without some physical effort on your part. Even those taking medicines should continue with the exercises. We are all being constantly bombarded with pollutants; without detoxification by way of deep breathing you cannot stay healthy".
"It is breath that keeps you alive. Nobody has died while breathing. Life and death is in God's hands but let us not hasten our end by neglecting the breath. The breathing exercises provide oxygen to the cells, rejuvenate them, and takes away toxic waste. It regulates, digestion, assimilation and elimination. My brothers, take deep breaths, follow my advice of healthy food, high thoughts and a simple life to be happy and lead a productive, patriotic, altruistic life. Poverty is not the absence of wealth, it is the absence of humane qualities, lack of manly abilities, and the absence of the desire to serve humanity."
"These breathing exercises will clean you at all levels. Disease will fall off and also your bad habits and passions. Good thoughts will replace your destructive tendencies. Patriotism and social skills will improve. Your ability to work hard will improve. All sloth will go, your body and minds will feel light, you will be filled with energy and become model citizen. But my brothers you have to practise what I tell you. It will not do if you just sing my paens and crowd around me for blessings. Baba Ramdev does not cure anyone, pranayam does. I am not here to preach, my yoga is not oratorial, it is practical. Do the yoga and feel the benefits."
What are these seven breathing exercises? They are;
1. Bhastrika : Take deep breath and release. Do it effortlessly, fill up your lungs and force
                     the entire breath out. Do it with a rhythm. Imagine that all the energy of the
                     Cosmos is entering into you. Feel that all your poisons are being expelled. Do
                     it for 5 minutes if you are relatively healthy. Repeat for another five minutes
                     if you are ailing, but gradually as you get accustomed. Bhastrika is very
                     important for all kinds of skin problems, however serious and however
                     strange. Not only leucoderma but also people suffering discoloration due
                     to burns have benefitted from sincerely practising this pranayama everyday.
2. Kapalbhati: Take in air into your stomach and push it out with a jerk. Only your stomach
                     should move and not your body. Your outbreath should cause the adams
                     apple to move as it pushes through the throat. Normally one should do this
                     for fifteen minutes, five minutes each three times. People with cancers and
                     other chronic diseases should do this twice a day totalling 30 minutes.
                     Swamiji places a great importance on this pranayam which he says will
                     help diabetes, regenerate insulin producing beta cells and also help the
                     organs in the stomach, the lungs and the heart. It will open blocked arteries
                     in the heart.
3. Bahya Pranayam: Take a deep breath and release. Completely push the stomach in
                      as you force the breath out and hold. Move you head downwards till
                      the chin is fully in touch with the upper portion of the torso. Hold this
                      position for 15 seconds and then move the head up as you breathe in. This
                      is to be repeated five to 11 times.
4. Agnisar:     Take a deep breath, pull the stomach in as you breathe out. Now hold the
                     breathe as you move the stomach in and out in a rhythmic fashion for 15
                     seconds. Then breathe in again. Repeat this three to five times. This helps
                     a lot with the digestive and eliminative process.
5. Anulom Vilom: Another very important pranayam. Sit straight, close the right nostril with
                     your thumb. Place the forefinger on the forehead, then breathe in deeply
                     with the left nostril. Now close the left nostril with the third and fourth fingers
                     joined together and breathe out through the right nostril. Take a deep breath
                     again through the right nostril, close it with the thumb, release the left nostril
                     and breathe out. This is one cycle. Repeat this cycle continuously for five
                     minutes. In total do it for fifteen minutes five minutes at a time three times.
                     This pranayam recharges the entire body, opens all closed apperatures,
                     sets right the entire flow of energy within the body and activates the chakras.
6. Bhramari:   Close the ears with your thumbs, with the second third and fourth fingers
                     close the eyes, rest the first finger on the forehead, keep the mouth closed.
                     Now take a deep breath. Release the breath through the nose while making
                     a loud humming noise with the throat. The noise should reverbate through the
                     entire body. Repeat the exercise five to 11 times. You will quite enjoy this
                     pranayam which will relax you and activate all the glands of the head.
7. Udgeeth:    This is also a very enjoyable pranayam. Take a deep breath and release the
                     breath through the mouth making the sound "Om". Repeat this five to 11
                     times. This puts you in touch with the divine element within you.
"Finish the pranayam exercises with a short contemplative meditation. Thank your Guru and God. Request the divine for a healthy, productive life. Then raise your hands, rub the palms to generate some heat and then place your palms on the face as slightly massage your face. This is the package of the seven pranayams."

We Want Sadhnas, not blind faith

Your birth is no ordinary event. The Lord has brought you into this world with a special purpose. You do not have to lead an animal existence. I know the aim of your life. And if you ask me then you do not belong to some particular region or place rather you are the son of the earth and entire world is your home. Now you have to progress ahead and make the entire universe your home. You won’t achieve anything living an ordinary life on earth. Thus you won’t be able to achieve that which is your true goal, your real aim. Your real goal is to be able to freely travel through the entire universe. You should be able to go to any place in the universe without any problem.

But blind faith won’t lead you to that goal. Just by repeating Ram-Ram, you won’t achieve such heights. Just be singing hymns you won’t become immortal, just be beating drums and cymbals you won’t be able to make the entire universe your home. Religion has nothing to do with the science. Religion and Sadhnas are two different paths. Only the latter leads to totality in life. Totality, completeness and the highest level of success in the spiritual world can be attained only by the following path of Sadhnas. This is the real goal of your life, this should be your only aim and it is for the achievement of this goal that you have been born on this earth. This is the true basis of human life.

But for this you have to face challenges and stand up against all odds. You should have intensity in your eyes, a determination on your face. And this shall happen when you have the weapon of Sadhnas in your possession. It is only through Sadhnas that one can gain vitality, courage and enthusiasm. With the weapon of Sadhnas you can destroy all the enemies of your life. With this formidable weapon you can overcome all your foes. You can completely banish poverty from your life and overcome all problems, obstacles and tensions.

I know the meditation is a very wonderful process. Entering into the self is am amazing experience but when the mind is disturbed, when the thoughts are not in control then what would be the use of sitting with closed eyes. It would be like hiding one’s head in sand as an ostrich does in the face of danger. Having buried its head in sand the poor bird thinks that it is safe from the predator. But the very next moment it becomes easy prey and with it ends its false hope and life.

When we feel fully content, when there is no worry that could disturb us, when we are capable of kicking at problems and when we are free of all tensions then only can we successfully enter into meditation. It is only then that one can interact with the self. Hence meditation is possible only when there are no problems in life, no enemies to disturb one’s peace of mind and no obstacles in life, and overcoming all these is possible through Sadhnas.

Gods are not pleased by singing of hymns or ringing of bells. You might well feel light and forget all your worries for a few moments by singing hymns and dancing. But this is no way of getting rid of problems of life, obstacles, enemies, diseases and tensions. Thus one cannot gain the capability of looking straight into the eyes of death.

I am not stopping you from going to temples or singing hymns. All these are necessary in life but they cannot improve your life. They cannot bring totality in life. Totality is possible only through the medium of Sadhnas.

The ancient texts clearly state- “Mantraadhinaash Devataa” i.e. Gods can be controlled only through mantras. It is only through the chanting of mantras that they can be propitiated and compelled to appear. It is only through mantras that there help can be sought and their powers used to remove problems of life.

The sadhnas and their mantras are effective even today. All one needs is a Guru who is proficient in this science. Only he can show you the path and fill you with enthusiasm and courage. Only he can make you conscious. Only he can teach you Sadhnas through which one can get rid of poverty, overcome one’s weaknesses, defeat one’s enemies, face all problems and destroy all obstacles that lie in one’s way.

You sure can do all this because you have a powerful Guru who processes the power of Sadhnas to guide you. He is not seated hidden in some cave in the Himalayas. He is not out of your reach. He is not very far from you. It is your good fortune that he is so near to you and so easily available.

But to benefit from him you have to reach him, you have to be filled with determination, you have to have faith in him and you have to devote your time and energy in Sadhnas.

You have to stand up with determination, you have to come to me with devotion, you have to face this world with courage, you have to destroy all problems of life with the weapon of Sadhnas. You have to attack all problems in life without compassion and with full strength. Only then shall your ancestors bless you, only then shall you be a true human, only then shall be divine Ganga flow through your life. All this is possible only through the medium of Sadhnas.

With Love and heartfelt blessings !!!
