ANURAG KUMAR GIRI, PROF.SANTOSH KUMAR

Abstract

In yoga, Pranayama is shown as an important part of life. In today's modern life, stress has become a part of a common routine, but due to excessive stress, a person goes into depression and the same depression takes down the life of the person very much and proves to be a hindrance in leading a successful life. If we look at the second chapter of Pranayama, then we will come to know that Pranayama proves to be effective in increasing our life cycle more. In Pranayama, we mainly follow its three parts, which are Purak, Rechan and kumbhaka. A normal human does 16 breath exchanges in 1 minute but through pranayama we can reduce it further if we count 10 counts in purika and stop it with the help of kumbhaka and do laxative process with 10 counts. We will find that we breathe only 5 times in 1 minute, 11 times we stopped our breathing process and this process can prove to be effective in increasing our life cycle and it can also prove to be helpful in reducing stress and depression. May be Jai Paper has been written only on what important role of Pranayama can prove to be in reducing stress and depression.
