This is about Swami Shajananda, who was at Atheetha Ashram , on the banks of Ubbannur lake , near Hosur in Tamil nadu .
He was so close to nature, he shared with us observations and lessons from doing things naturally.
Many a Christmas ago, during one of the days at the health camp, He talked to us on the simple act of breathing.
Watching the breath of a child during activity or sleep, and the breath of an adult during sleep , we find so much similarity, and much to be studied, how we have moved away.
Ever since our first visit to a doctor , who asked us to take a deep breathe, and our days at the defense academy training
at NCC,where we learnt the " chest out stomach in," our breathing methods have altered.
How stupid it may look to wonder why should one talk on the simple act of breathing.
Let us make a small try , may we slide back to normal breathing.
Take a relaxed inhalation, watch the abdomen grow, now let it an equally relaxed exhalation and watch the tummy get small.
Now let it happen naturally -- happy breathing.
