Pujneeye Acharyaji,

I wanted to mention that after having initiated in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan when I started my ‘Essential-practices’ for the first time which was late July, my breathing count was approximately 4/2/6.

What to talk of health benefits in fact such people are endangering their own health!

If someone wishes to understand what suspended particle are and how they could be choking one’s delicate airways within the lungs they just need to…
