THE HINDU-YOGI 
SCIENCE OF BREATH

Page: 13
By YOGI RAMACHARAKA


In imperfect or shallow breathing, only a portion of the lung cells are brought into play, 

and a great portion of the lung capacity is lost, the system suffering in proportion to the 

amount of under-oxygenation. The lower animals, in their native state, breathe naturally, 

and primitive man undoubtedly did the same. The abnormal manner of living adopted by 

civilized man - the shadow that follows upon civilization - has robbed us of our natural 

habit of breathing, and the race has greatly suffered thereby. Man's only physical 

salvation is to "get back to Nature."
