The first breakfast must be Oxygen ( Breathing Exercise ).


Grow like Lotus

The first breakfast that one must feed to body is “OXYGEN” through breathing exercises ( Pranayam ). After charging our body with Oxygen, it will cleanse our body and we will be tuned well to do meditation and experience it’s full benefits. 

 Our thoughts are nothing but our ego that we are identified with. Ego is good, bit it has more negative effects too, hence we are constantly dragged to its trap and find ourselves in unhappiness and stress. Leading the life with more awareness means leading the life by controlling our egos by experiencing the root cause of it and it’s impact in life. 

As we all see that Lotus flower used as a symbol for peace in many traditions. Because It leads a unique life. It takes birth in muddy waters and grows in that polluted water. It doesn’t die in polluted water, instead it strengthens itself in it’s roots to receive only positive strength , It wins even in troubled environment by not losing it’s true inner nature, it lives without negative aspects of ego. The same quality is established and reflected in it’s appearance, it looks very beautiful and peaceful with it’s inner strength.

 Meditation helps us to live with our original nature even in the disturbed environment without negative aspects of ego just like the lotus flower. Hence we all must practice Pranayam to condition our mind which will help us to be receptive to receive the full benefits of Meditation.
