The Practice of Yogic Breath and The Healing Research with Dr. Saraswati
If you can control your breathing you can control your mind. We cannot control the mind directly. It is said, “Our mind is a drunken monkey, stung by a scorpion.” The mind doesn’t move on its own; it does not have an outlet, like other sense organs. As the master of the five senses, the mind needs a vehicle in order to move, release, settle and ultimately become quiet. The vehicle on which the mind is moving is the breath, and the mind can be ‘caught’ through the method of breathing.
