Swami Rama, Rudolph Ballentine, MD,
Alan Hymes, MD
Much of the Western world was completely unaware of the profound impact of the breath on the body and mind until the 1970’s. It was during this time that Swami Rama astonished physiologists by demonstrating perfect control over his heart rate and brain waves—something Western scientists didn’t believe humans could possibly achieve. In this book, Swami Rama shares some of the basic breathing techniques practiced by Himalayan yogis, so that you too can experience the profound effects of pranayama and breath control.
The goal of Science of Breath is to present knowledge and practices regarding the breath in a way that can be applied to personal growth. This book is a masterful guide to systematically identifying bad breathing habits, replacing those habits with healthy breathing patterns, and developing control over pranic flow. Learn how to develop and master the link between your body and mind through the understanding of the breath. With increased awareness and control of the subtle aspects of breathing, one can effect deep physical and psychological changes and begin to master the roaming tendencies of the mind. Science of Breath opens the door to a new way of being, providing a powerful tool in the pursuit of holistic health and personal growth.

Swara Yoga:The Tantric Science of Brain Breathing contains knowledge about the physical act of breathing and its subtle yet profound influences on our consciousness.
It aims at directly awakening the highest human potential. In other systems a similar understanding of the swara, the breath, is also expressed. For example, Taoism also states that if one meditates upon the breath, the cosmic deities or forces can be seen operating the physical body.
By sustaining oneself purely on the breath, rather than on coarse food, one's entire being will be purified and strengthened. Then consciousness is able to ascend to the heavens, where eternal life is experienced by the body and soul. Swara Yoga not only helps those who believe in a supreme reality but also those who do not have faith and who will be surprised to discover many truths pertaining to this reality. Swara Yoga is a path which leads to total experience and awakening of the entire being.
