Pranayam

Pranayam is a technique related to breathing pattern in which balanced, regular, and rhythmic inhalation and exhalation in specific method is performed. It is comprised of four stages:

  1. Purak (Inhalation)
  2. Rechak (Exhalation)
  3. Antrika Kumbhak (Holding the breath inside after inhalation)
  4. Bahya Kumbhak (Holding the breath outside after exhalation)


The concept of "prana" can be illustrated through an example. Electricity flows through a wire to a bulb. The presence of electricity can only be felt when the bulb lights up. Similarly, prana is the vital energy that like electricity flows through the human body and gets manifested through our actions. Pranayam is the technique to master over this prana. 

Types of Pranayam

There are several types of pranayam, which mainly differ in the way exhalation and inhalations are performed. Some popular ones include

  1. Surya-Bhedi
  2. Chandra-Bhedi
  3. Anuloma-Viloma
  4. Bhastrika
  5. Kappalbhati
  6. Sheetali
  7. Ujjai


Objectives of Pranayam

The main objective of pranayam is development, expansion, control and regulate the flow of of vital energy throughout the body, create a link between the physical body and the soul, to heal physical and mental disorders and bring about harmony between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body.

Benefits of Pranayam

The various stages of a well-performed pranayam provides many benefits...

In general, pranayam promotes uninterrupted flow of the vital energy through nerves. Inhalation gives energy to the body. Exhalation cures the abdominal ailments. Holding the breath awakens the inherent potentials. Some pranayam such as chandra-bhedi cools the body, purifies the blood and re-energizes the body. Similarly, sheetali pranayam quenches the thirst, regulates the blood pressure and enhances the glow of the face. It also reflects the coolness and tranquility of mind. It helps control the breath rate and improve mental concentration. It also helps in realization of divine and intuitive powers

"Mr KC Jain inspired me to visit Adhyatma Sadhna Kendra Chhatarpur n do the Mantra Chanting in a unique scientific rhythmatic way n experience the difference both internally as also through Aura Scanning being done there. What I witnessed on 28th September was amazing. I entered meditative state within minutes of rhythmatic chanting n my pre n post scanning results just stunned me ( scans attached). I guess a combination of spiritual environment in Mantra Chanting room n the way it's being administered has played the critical role. Impact study by way of Aura scanning is bound to inspire each one. I thank Sh KC Jain for having invited me there n wish him n the Kendra all the best. SAYAR BENGANI DELHI"

"मैंने अपनी धर्मपत्नी के साथ अध्यात्म साधना केंद्र में हो रहे प्रेक्षा ध्यान शिविर में स्वास्थ्य हेतु भाग लिया । मेरी पत्नी के घुटनों में और बीपी में बहुत ज्यादा समस्या बढे होने के कारण दूसरे दिन हमने घर वापस जाने का निर्णय लिया। परंतु श्री के सी जैन के आश्वासन पर हमने 2 दिन और रुकने का फैसला लिया। यहां की योग थैरेपिस्ट ने जो उपचार प्रदान किया ना सिर्फ दर्द में आराम आया बल्कि वह बिना सहारे के चलने में सक्षम हो गई साथ में बढ़ी हुई बीपी में भी साइकोथेरेपी से विशेष फायदा हुआ । 7 दिन के प्रेक्षा ध्यान शिविर करने के उपरांत मेरी पत्नी पूरी तरह स्वस्थ महसूस कर रही हैं, हमने जाना की समस्या का कारण हम खुद हैं और समाधान भी भीतर है। मैं खुद भी अपने फ्रोजेन शोल्डर को पूरी तरह से स्वस्थ महसूस कर रहा हूं और मैंने 3 किलो वजन भी कम किया है। यहां पर हो रहे गहन वैज्ञानिक शोधों को AIIMS की रिसर्च टीम ने भी प्रमाणित किया है। पूरी टीम को हार्दिक धन्यवाद। नाम -अजित जैन , दिल्ली"
