Sun –Tree – Man- Chakra
…… the First dimensional awakening
According to Hindu legend, there are 84 lac asans or postures. It is said that Adi Guru Lord Shiva demonstrated 84,000 asans and later Patanjali Maharishi reduced their number to make it easy for mankind. Shwasa is an extract from these yogasans, which is indeed the most practised, simple, effective, curative and preventive method for one and all. Shwasa means to inhale and exhale. Life is absolutely dependent upon breath. From the first faint breath of the infant to the last gasp of the dying person, it is one long stretch of continued shwasa or breath. From the womb to the tomb, life is totally dependent upon shwasa. Shwasa is the external manifestation of the prana shakti in us. In 24 hrs a day, we breathe in and out 21,600 times that is, in one hour we breathe in and out 900 times, in 1 minute we breathe in and out 15 times. But our life span doesn’t depend on how many times we breath in and out. The more rhythmically we breathe, life is open to many possibilities. Shwasa if practiced the entire internal system is cleansed, blood is purified and there is more of oxygenation.

Just as in photosynthesis when photons, the light particles from the rays of the Sun falls on the tree, the nucleus of the trees gets energized and synthesizes smaller molecules into complex molecular structures like glucose, vitamins, minerals, etc. In the same way trees are the source of energy to man which in turn thrive on the energy from the Sun. The negative, sick energy, carbon dioxide released from Man is converted by the trees and returned to us as positive energy and Oxygen.
Earth has the power to absorb all the sick energy from the soles of the feet or through mooladhara chakra, which is filtered by the roots of the tree which converts it to positive energy through its branches and leaves, with which the cosmic energy of the Sun gets absorbed into the crown region or Sahasrara chakra.
