From the Jacket:

For thousand of years spiritual seekers, mystics and yogis have realized the innate spiritual quality of the breath. If we stop breathing for just a few minutes we are dead. Life force is therefore contained in the breath that we breathe. Yogis for ages have used the powers of breath to transform consciousness; indeed a psychospiritual reaction takes place with the use of these breathing techniques.

Altered states of awareness and profound healing are possible with just using the breath. Today we are privileged to have teachers to instruct us on the proper use for these purposes.

Scientists have done research on things that give us lots of energy to do all we need to do to go from 'rags to riches' physically, mentally and spiritually. Of all these things, from coffee to ginseng to artificial stimulants to working out, they found that just 15 minutes of deep breathing can give us all the energy we need for the day. This book covers the numerous benefits that simple breathing techniques, which are described here, can bring us.

Preface

For thousands of years spiritual seekers, mystics and yogis have realized the innate spiritual quality of the breath. If we stop breathing for just a few minutes we are dead. Life force is therefore contained in the breath that we breathe. Yogis for ages have used the powers of breath to transform consciousness; indeed a psycho-spiritual reaction takes place with the use of these breathing techniques.

Altered states of awareness and profound healing are possible with just using the breath. Today we are privileged to have teachers to instruct us on the proper use of the breath for these purposes.

Scientists have done research on things that give us lots of energy to do all we need to do to go from "rags to riches" physically, mentally and spiritually. Of all these things, from coffee to ginseng to artificial stimulants to working out, they found that just 15 minutes of deep breathing can give us all the energy we need for the day.

In this book, we cover the numerous benefits that simple breathing techniques, which are described here, can bring us.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
