by Harish Johari

Modern scientists are just now beginning to understand what yogis have known for centuries--that the life force animating our physical bodies is regulated by breath, and that the breath energy is controlled by the mind. The esoteric and practical science of Swar Yoga--presented in this book for the first time in English--teaches conscious observation and control of breathing patterns to maximize energy and vitality. Tantric Scholar and author of Tools for Tantra, Chakras, and The Healing Power of Gemstones, Harish Johari brings an in-depth knowledge of ancient Hindu sciences to this discussion of breath and the yoga of balanced living. His is the first guidebook for Westerners to offer a comprehensive treatment of the subject, providing information from Sanskrit texts otherwise unavailable in the English Language. He explains the sensory network of the nose and its effect on the subtle channels of energy throughout the body, showing the direct link between the practice of conscious breathing and the electrochemical balance of the brain and nervous system. He also shows how the breath, alternating between left and right nostrils, is influenced by solar and lunar forces and how one can attune to these natural rhythms and universal laws for greater health and well-being. Johari's mastery of Swar Yoga techniques is apparent in the broad scope of Breath, Mind and Consciousness: included are a discussion of the phases of the five elements in the breathing cycle, exercises for physical and psychic healing, the means for determining which nostril is active, and instructions for conceiving a son or a daughter.

I read many books on Pranayama (Indian science of breath), and this is by far one of the very best ones i know. The author doesn't waste any time and gets every page filled with useful information that can radically change the way we live literally every hour of our day.
High praises to Harish Johari, who has made available this great knowledge in a very easy and direct way.
Was looking for more information on the breath but there wasn't much there.
My 3rd copy - will probably keep giving it to others as a gift.
Great Read
the book is about a very ancient tradition in india.IN india the tradition connects man with cosmos through breathing, and breath and mind.Through this tradition indians have been controlling there emotions and could plan there life by taking into account the moon and the sun, make diagnosa by checking how a person is living in harmony with the sun and the moon
This is a very simple book. Explains the ancient science of Swara Yoga in a simple way. Beautifully explains the link between Mind and Breath. A must buy for all who are interested in this line of self development.
The book is well described on chakras and its practice. Good one for beginner. I really like it and its author.
This little book has so much wisdom in it. Harish Johari is a master at synthesizing eastern knowledge and making it accessible for the western mind.
