We want to leave with you certain knowledge which will serve you, your personality, your reality, your own self. You will become prosperous. You will say, “How?” The more prana the body consumes, more wealth comes. It’s simple law. People with short breath are always absolutely poor. They half breathe. They breathe only in upper area. They do not touch the heavens and earth.
Full breath is when lungs are expanded and they can’t get any more. Breathe out, then squeeze them out. This is what you have to do. This is Raj Yog. It gives in you the royalty of personality. It takes, cuts out your poverty. Suck in the entire prana. And push out all weaknesses and disease.
