It is difficult to maintain a balanced life. Anxieties and diseases affecting the nervous and circulatory systems have multiplied. In despair, people become addicted to psychedelic drugs, smoking and drinking or indiscriminate sex to find relief. These activities allow one to forget oneself temporarily, but the causes remain unsolved and the diseases return.

Only pranayama gives real relief from these problems. It cannot be learnt by arguments and discussions, but must be mastered with patient and cautious effort. It starts by giving relief to sufferers from ordinary ailments like common colds, headaches and mental disharmony. Its nadir is the elixir of life.
