Harmony Series - Control over Breathing - (By H. H. Acharya MahaPragya)
In order to accomplish anything, one has to go through a sequence of movements. Each one of us has to observe a certain order. This is no foolishness; on the contrary it is simple commonsense. Breath-perception is the first door. You will have to cross seven doors before you can perceive the soul. First, you must perceive your breath, then the body. Later you must perceive the chemical changes taking place in the body; you must also perceive the electrical impulses, which energise the body and the changes in the brain wrought by those electrical impulses. You have to become aware of every cell and the movement therein.
Breath is soul. Perception of breath is perception of soul. It may sound strange, yet it is the whole truth. Does a corpse breathe? Never, only that which is alive can breathe. Only he lives who has consciousness. Only he is conscious who has a soul. Without the soul, there is no consciousness; without consciousness, there is no life, and without life, there is no breath. Thus, it may be said that to perceive the breath is to perceive the soul. Breath-perception is soul-perception. Thus, the purity of breath is as important in the process of spiritual training as the purity of food and sense-purification. Without purity of breath, perception of the soul remains a dream. In Manonushasanam four methods are prescribed for the achievement of pure breathing: pranayam, samavrtti svasa, dirgha svasa and kayotsarga. The purity of breath opens the door to the perception of the soul.
The first method is Pranayam, regulated breathing. It literally means 'add to the dimensions of, give scope to Prana, i e. life, vital breath, soul' As long as vitality is limited, there can be no purity of breath. Breathing is a process. Right breathing develops both aspects of our personality, the inner, and the outer; it maintains equilibrium between them. It regulates them both it influences the inner and the outer world at the same time. It is a bridge. The equipoise between the body and the mind cannot be attained without regulation of breathing. That is why Pranayam is very essential.
The other method is dirgha svasa, i.e. deep breathing. As a matter of fact, deep breathing is natural breathing. Breath must never be short; it should be long. That is why the term deep breathing is employed. Natural breathing means taking full deep breaths. The breath-vibrations should extend to the belly. Observe a child breathing while he is asleep. With every inhalation, his belly expands. That is correct breathing. However, as the child grows up, and becomes subject to strong impulses and emotions, his breath is gradually shortened. Anger cannot descend upon a man without first shortening his breath. Violent agitation or emotion is not possible without short breaths. The normal rate of breathing is 15 to 17 breaths per minute. In a fit of frenzy, it increases up to 30, 40, 50, 60 breaths per minute.
In a state of deep breathing, anger is just not possible. The right breath is the deep long breath. It reflects strangely on our society and science that a lesson, which ought to have been taught on the very first day in the Classroom, is never taught throughout life, and never properly learnt. Because the very first lesson is neither taught nor learnt, all subsequent instruction becomes dangerous and disturbing. Right breathing is necessary for the proper development of a man's personality; incorrect breathing leads to disintegration.
The third means of achieving pure breathing is samavrtti svasa that is, even breathing. Even breath implies even time for inhalation and exhalation, neither more nor less. The practice of even breathing is most desirable.
The fourth means is kayotsarga, complete relaxation. The word, kayotsarga has two meanings - to relax the body and to awaken consciousness. Man today lives under the great pressure of his emotions. He knows not how to relax. He cannot abandon himself. He only knows how to make himself tense; he is incapable of letting go. This everlasting tension is his greatest problem. Something enters his brain and he is obsessed with it forever. Something happens and he cannot get it out of his mind. He hears something, and the knot thereof stays in his mind forever. The brain becomes very tense. Everything, all that happens, adds to the tension. In addition, something or the other is happening all the time; one cannot withhold the cycle of life. Something is always happening.
However, the individual who knows the process of breath-purification is never tied to any event. To get rid of tension, Kayotsarga is the only way. Kayotsarga means relaxation, to become tranquil and clear so as never to allow any event to leave a mark on the mind - never a line carved in stone, only a line drawn on water or in sand, which dissolves as soon as it is formed. During the practice of kayotsarga breathing becomes pure and relaxed of itself
Dana Bazaar to migrate to Kusumba:
The Octroi tax panic has finally shown its reflection with Jalgaon region's most powerful trade community Dana Bazaar planning to move out of town to avoid Octroi levied on entrance of items.

to Eliminate Worry (By Shrutpragya Swamiji - Chicago, IL)
Worry is a self-inflicted burden. While people want to be free from worries, they are unaware of the root cause of worry. The root cause is ego. If you let go of ego, your worries will disappear too. No one wants to get rid of their ego, yet everyone wants to get rid of worrying. An analogy can be drawn to wanting to get rid of darkness but not wanting to turn on the lights. The flowers of worry bloom on the tree of ego. The biggest worry for man is his ego. Ego means to consider yourself as 'the Karta' (doer). As long as you believe that, "I am the karta of this", it will be difficult to get rid of your worry.
The easiest way to free yourself from worry is to understand that you are not the karta, the karta is some other power. I am just the medium (Nimit). Worry arises when I consider myself the Karta. When I do not consider myself as the Karta, then I become part of this vast universe. The entire responsibility of doing something is on it, not on me. If any good happens, then it is responsible; and if anything bad happens, that is still its responsibility. Happiness, unhappiness all belong to it.
'Karmanye Vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana' means do not keep yourself at the center. Perform your karma but do not wait for the expected result. Accept whatever comes your way. This is total surrender (samarpan). Samarpan means whatever I am made to do, I will not complain. I will always be in an 'eternal happiness' (param raji) frame. Whatever happens, whatever I get is all a gift from the supreme soul. This is the secret to remaining worry free.

Corporation urges for Rain water
The Jalgaon City Municipal Corporation has urged all Jalgaonities to go for rain water harvesting to improve water levels in the city. The Corporation following Mahatma Fule rain water harvesting drive has spread information brochures through local news media detailing the concept of rain water harvesting. The whole Jalgaon region has been witnessing acute drinking water shortage since last few years and as a result the Corporation and District Administration has been acquiring private well, setting up hand pumps and various temporary projects to overcome the issues. The Jalgaon city has average rainfall of 640mm and therefore rain water harvesting on average 1,000 square feet could harvest 51,200 litres of rain water in ground. Every person on an average requires 100 litres of water per day and therefore a family of 4 would be need 400 litres of water and these 51,200 litres would avail water for 4.26 months to this family.
The rain water harvesting is to be followed on all major buildings, Government offices, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals and tall buildings and has to store rain water to ground level resources. The Jalgaon city had 30 to 40 feet water level in 1960s to 1970s but the same has moved up to 200 feet to 350 feet depending on area this year which is an issue of severe concern.

Jalgaon Corporation Octroi tender: Contractor extends offer:
The Ulhasnagar based Contractor being largest bid offering party was supposed to be finalised for Octroi tax collection in Jalgaon.

Water, electricity and resources woes:
Jalgaon name outshines nearby districts in terms of business and geographical capabilities but has its own woes when we discuss in terms of water, electricity and basic infrastructure resources. The whole Jalgaon is witnessing one of most worsened state of resources management aspect with harsh times for citizens to get water, electricity and basic resources for development.
The every year water anxiety continues this year with grim form of district administration announcing no more drinking water supply from region's only major resource Girana dam from upcoming year. The yet to build and see Waghur dam is in its child stages and making dependence on this would mean a imprudent approach of getting water to city. Most of the district's dams are too small to depend for a year thereby drying in January/ February itself. Out of 12 dams in district, the Girana, Hatnur, Manyad, and Suki are amongst few with good capacity and are in good raining zone. A study conducted by an International organisation helping water shortage zones reveals that the Jalgaon District is having sufficient resources to cater to supply subjected to proper management and utilisation. Years ahead could mark region's elections with sounding and selling keywords like "Tum mujhe Vote do, me tumhe Pani dunga". There is a strong need of synchronisation amongst District, Local management in terms of water supply resource management added with common man's concern on getting sufficient amount of water.
A year's short monsoon or low-raining makes last 6 months harder to cross with water selling becoming highly profit earning business that is equally painstaking for citizens. The Agricultural dependent district finds it harder to survive on financial front even in one short raining year thereby yielding clear impact on region's overall economy. Electricity, roads and basic resources yet remains key points of political touch and no major attention being paid to resolve those. We are yet to understand that fulfilment of basic resources like water, electricity, and infrastructure aspects would only take district ahead in financial and overall growth terms thereby benefiting everyone with expanded earning opportunities. We still stick ourselves to those common resource issues thereby misleading the whole district on unholy path of disgusting move in terms of overall progress. We should have Surat, Bangalore, Aurangabad, Amravati cities as our path guides to improve in every term of living.
