Happy, Healthy, Holy Solstice Series – Breath

Teacher:
Date: June 18, 2019
Duration: 1:24:18
Kriya:
Meditation

We continue with our Solstice Series featuring the kriyas, meditations and wisdom from Yogi Bhajan in his earliest years here (50 years ago).  Today, we’re focusing on the breath, which was a primary teaching of Yogi Bhajan.  Being present in the breath gives us control of ourselves and our prana – intelligent energy.

Key statistics from Yogi Bhajan:  we typically breathe 16 times per minute.  When we slow that to 8 times per minute, we are near God; four times per minute, and we are the perfect image of god; one time per minute and we become the living God.  Also, people tend to breathe to a lung capacity of around 300 cc, when we are capable of upwards of 1800 cc.  Lungs are the biggest organ in our entire body; doing the most important work – cleaning the blood, thinning it so it can get into the smallest arteries and capillaries.
