There was a boy who suddenly got such bad depression, he couldn’t go to work, in fact, he couldn’t do anything. He was a young boy of about 25. So, he had to come for three classes a week and within one month he got all his confidence back, got another job and started to work. He didn’t appear at the Institute after that. What did he do? A lot of backbends and some breathing as well. He sat on a chair and was just breathing in a particular way. He wasn’t lying down and it wasn’t even a real pranayama but it worked straight away. This is how powerful your breath is in sorting out your psychological problems, psycho-emotional problems.
