The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

According to the point of view of the mystic, a natural, full breath gives perfect health; and to a mystic's view, in a hundred people not one breathes rightly. Every Brahman teaches his child the way of breathing when he is nine years old. As it is a common thing that everyone breathes incorrectly, it rarely occurs to the mind that one's breath is incorrect. There are many reasons why people in general do not breathe rightly, but one among them is the lack of education in this. As health is more important than anything else on earth, and as health depends entirely on breath, which is the very life, it is necessary that the culture of the breath should be considered as of the highest importance.
