Monastic Breath Technique

By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog

Meditation is mediation — intervention between conflicting hemispheres of the brain to promote reconciliation of Yin and Yang forces.

The left (Father Time) and right (Mother Earth) hemispheres are at variance in everyone who’s not “cell-realized.”

Meditation is like hiring a marriage counselor to navigate the choppy waters of Cosmic Matrimony.

The four-count Monastic Breath is the easiest way to begin this reconciliation of the hemispheres by regulating the carbon dioxide tension in the alveoli of the lungs.

Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) endorsed this ancient technique, renaming it the Therapeutic Breath.

He also called it Alternate Rotation Breathing and the Rotation Cleansing Breath.

Indeed, “meditate” and “medical” are both derived from the Latin mederi, “to remedy.”

Meditation coordinates the brain’s hemispheres, which are themselves responsible for coordinating many bodily activities.

The brain is the throne of consciousness, but the King resides in the nose (oxygen).

How do you do the Monastic Breath technique?

Inhale in the right nostril to the count of seven.

Hold the breath in for the count of seven.

Exhale out the left nostril to the count of seven.

Hold the breath out to the count of seven.

Inhale in the left nostril to the count of seven.

Hold the breath in to the count of seven.

Exhale out the right nostril to the count of seven.

Hold the breath for the count of seven.

Continue as long as desired or necessary (as the case may be).

According to Swami Nitty-Gritty…

“The rotation cleansing breath is for bronchitis and asthma. Tap the chest while doing the alternate therapeutic breathing.”

        Sitting down and meditating is merely “practicing meditation.”

        Swami Nitty-Gritty called it Stone Buddha meditation and Siddha meditation (“Siddha on your butt meditation”).

        The same goes for chanting.

        Actual meditation is living your life from “moment to moment” with awareness, passion, courage, love, happiness, and connectivity (not to be confused with “internet connectivity”).

        According to Monkey-Man Joe (yet another name of Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

        “The test of spirituality and meditation is to be practical moment to moment. How immune is he? How divine is he? The immune level is the measuring stick of the balanced person. He is busy living it. Enlightenment is the ability to act on command, the responsive act, and the evidence is how life revolves around you. Practicing meditation is the preparation for living meditation. Living meditation is demonstrated in your daily life by having the ability to recognize the correct moment to act.”
