Nature of Project
No man is perfect. However, every healthy baby is born perfect. Somewhere down the line, imperfection creeps in insidiously in every individual, resulting in gross imperfections in quality of life (QOL) of each individual. Even the person, who has a higher QOL, can enjoy a much higher QOL if this insidiously creeping imperfection is disabled.
Rhythmic Breathing Science (RBS), results in health, efficiency, team building, community development within shortest time and with nominal financial burden. It keeps on increasing the QOL of the individual.
Motivation and Objective
How urgent is the need?
Current events are creating history which is nothing to boast about. The course of history will change towards a higher and higher quality, when every individual’s QOL keeps on increasing. This is the need of the hour today, and will become more and more evident with each passing day. Hence the urgent need for RBS.
We end up discovering that the rat race is no longer a rat race, but a life full of meaning and satisfaction. If practiced in a group, a motley collection of participants will end up as a cohesive group in the shortest possible time. However, no commercial value should be derived from this science, since traditionally this has been shared without commercializing it.
Means and Methodology for Achieving the Objective
RBS is so simple that it can be practiced from 7 years onwards, but even younger can be passively exposed so that they can easily pick up the system as they become 7 years old. All that is required is for each household or a unit to purchase a machine costing between Rs.350/- to 950/-. Besides this investment, the participant has to practice these exercises daily, which is about 15-20 minutes every day.
As long as the participant practices RBS daily, the benefits add up each day. Therefore, the impact is lifelong.
In order to understand RBS, we need to observe a newborn baby. A healthy newborn baby just out of the mother’s womb breathes 36 times in 1 minute, for the first 9 months. This drops to 18 breaths in 1 minute (half the breathing speed at birth), for the next nine months. This becomes 12 breaths per minute from 18th month to 27th month. At this breathing speed, the baby expands both its chest and stomach while breathing in. It contracts both its chest and stomach while breathing out. During this phase, the cells of the system are growing at fastest rate. This baby breathing (Rhythmic Breathing) is very powerful. It is so powerful that an adult human climbing the steps two at a time, may feel exhausted when he reaches the top step with the normal breathing, but he will not get exhausted if he climbs the same steps in the same manner at same speed, but with Rhythmic Breathing. Baby Breathing, when adopted for full waking hours, reduces toxins generated in the human system. An adult human, however does not breathe in this way. The baby breathing changes slowly into our regular breathing. This is because the baby develops intelligence, ego and motor skills at the end of this phase. Therefore, when its ego is hurt or it is in pain or discomfort, it reacts by crying loudly. This changes its breathing speed and style. Thousands of such incidents till the baby becomes adult, completely erases the memory of rhythmic breathing. Therefore, the babies need to be familiarized with this breathing at tender age itself.
Baby Breathing (Rhythmic Breathing) can be perfected with daily practice. This can be learnt in three steps:
- The volume of air inhaled in each breath is the normal volume.
- The technique is to expand both the chest and the stomach normally simultaneously during inhaling and to contract both normally simultaneously during exhaling, both inhaling and exhaling carried out smoothly and continuously.
- The speed of breathing should be such that in one minute, 12 breaths are performed.
Baby Breathing, when adopted for full waking hours, reduces the toxins generated in the human system. However, RBS has a system of exercises, each exercise for a specific part. There are eight exercises. These exercises take care of the whole human system. They do not allow blocks to form/dissolve in the human system. Each exercise takes 1 minute only and has to be done daily. This set of exercises dissolve the blocks that may be present in the system, provided they are regularly and sincerely practiced.
- Warm-up exercise: This is done to the newborn baby’s breathing speed of 36 breaths per minute. During inhaling, both hands, loosely held at sides, are raised overhead, at same time inhaling deeply through nose. During exhaling, both hands are swung down and behind as far as they go, while exhaling forcefully through mouth, like bowing out a lighted candle held about a meter away.
- Chest Exercise: This is done to the newborn baby’s breathing speed of 36 breaths per minute. During inhaling through nose, only chest is expanded, while during exhaling, through nose, chest contracts. No other part of the body should be moved. This keeps the chest clean and dry.
- Stomach Exercise: This is done to the newborn baby’s breathing speed of 36 breaths per minute. During inhaling, through nose, only stomach is expanded, while during exhaling, through nose, stomach contracts. No other part of the body should be moved. This supplies sufficient blood to all cells in the stomach which keeps them clean and strong.
- Stretching Exercise: This is done to the newborn baby’s breathing speed of 36 breaths per minute. During inhaling, through nose, both chest and stomach are expanded simultaneously, while during exhaling, through nose, both chest and stomach contract simultaneously. No other part of the body should be moved. This realigns the vertebrae by removing stress in them.
- Staccato Breathing: Five short, quick inhalations totaling on full breath, followed by one forceful exhalation through the mouth emptying the lungs, completely. In one minute, this is done 18 times. This strengthens the nerve cells and the brain cells in the brain.
- Square Breathing: 1. Inhale for 5 seconds 2. Retain (Breath) for 5 seconds 3. Exhale (Breath out) for 5 seconds 4. Keep (Breath out) for 5 seconds. This cycle is repeated 3 times in one minute. This kills infection in the blood.
- Gulping Exercise: Take a deep breath through the nose, close the mouth, block both nostrils with the fingers and thumb, press the chin tightly to the hollow of the throat, and swallow five times as in the act of drinking water. Then straighten the head and unblock the nostrils to breathe out. This supplies natural tonic which has not yet been manufactured
