The modern science

Because ancient eastern practices assign many benefits to controlled and slowed-down breathing, western researchers became interested in this concept and its efficiency. Studies on health effects of slow breathing are not enumerable, however very promising, mentioning observed benefits in increasing longevity.[1] Monks were right to count their lives in the number of breaths they take!  

Your inner world can instantly change your breathing rate, the way you see what is happening outside and when you recall some unpleasant event. Breath control and observation, therefore, allows you to do both – direct your attention inside to notice what requires your attention and become present and calmer by controlling what happens automatically – your breath, the medium of your life force.
