Mahavira's Scripture Of Health: [08.06] Breathing And Health - Impulse And Breathing

Proper breathing can control impulses, excitements etc. It is an experienced reality that when one is driven by an impulse or excitement, the breathing becomes imbalanced. No impulse can overcome a person without increasing the pace of his breathing or making it imbalanced. In a balanced state of mind or in a state when the breathing is balanced, no one can become angry. The moment the pace of the breathing is slowed down, the impulse wears out.

It is often asked, how is it possible to contain emotional or impulsive urges? There are two ways of doing it: a long-term measure and a short-term measure. As a short-term measure, regulate your breathing when anger comes, control the breath and stop the breath for a moment. The moment you hold your breath, no impulse, whether of anger or sexual desire or anything else, would thrust itself any more. Once the breathing is controlled, no impulse would be strong enough to push itself up. That is why we must be careful about our breathing. If we wish to keep our impulse under check, and control our brain, it is very important to control our breathing. Control over breathing also maintains the correct level of our blood pressure. The long-term measure is the regular practice of the perception of long breathing.

Many therapies to deal with this problem are in vogue now a day. However, it is necessary to develop the breath-therapy and the therapy based on colour-breathing. Many fields can be opened by doing research in this method and this therapy can prove to be more effective than other therapies.
