      Make the Best Use of the Breath

      "In Yoga asanas or in yogic breathing, one should
      never exert oneself. Let things come in their own time.
      Remember: Slow and steady wins the race. Particularly
      when retention during pranayama comes in, one must be
      very, very careful. Many people think yogic breathing
      means to take a deep breath in and hold it as long as
      possible until the entire body becomes shaky, and that
      they call yogic breathing. It's not that. Pranayama is
      a controlled, rhythmic way of breathing. As you inhale,
      you make the best use of the breath by holding just as
      long as is comfortable and then exhaling, taking twice
      the time to exhale as to inhale. That is how to approach
      pranayama safely.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

        The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But, as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantram or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave.


        When a mantram is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It's just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes from God is always being transmitted. God never stops transmitting all the beautiful things. Some simply don't tune their heart radios to the proper frequency. Instead, they tune it to the wrong frequency and get atmospheric disturbance.


        With practice, you'll be able to tune your heart radio. You will become a good receiver. Only then is the proper communication possible. Communication brings communion. Real communion is possible only when you tune your entire personality to God's frequency.


        Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi
