I am indebted to this Noble Science. The breathing exercises along with the Affirmations have given me great strength and fortitude emotionally and mentally and Grateful for the Manifold gifts that have been bestowed upon us and I have been able to overcome a number of insurmountable hurdles in life. With my husband confined to the house, unable to travel since 2016 , the girls and me had to deal with every property and financial matter. We were in a total mess. Living in Mumbai we had no knowledge of how to deal with the haphazard paperwork before us. 3 huge properties in Noida and Guragaon which is famous for cheats and goondas. Over the past 3 yrs my daughter was able to travel there and all of us supporting each other dealing with agents and online buyers. During peak Covid time she was able to get the transactions completed last year. Ours was an unheard of demand. We had given one clause: No advance will be taken. It will be one time payment. And Registration would be done after cheque amounts are credited in our account. It’s miraculous how all the men dealing in these transactions with us gave us correct advise and helped us. It is With Gratitude and Joy We give thanks We give thanks We give thanks.

I recently attended a three day abridged course on “Life and Breath “organised by Pratibimb Charitable Trust.
Initially I was unsure as to why I was attending this course.But after listening to the contents of the course, the patience,understanding and the attention to detail , I realised that this was going to be instrumental in improving my understanding and putting it to use in my daily life.
The breathing exercises with their benefits were explained and demonstrated by Mr Pravin Manker in such a simple manner that it would be difficult for anyone to forget. He goes out of the way to explain the affirmations after each breathing exercise.I was left wondering as to why I did not attend this programme earlier ,as this would would have definitely reversed all the wrong decisions that I have taken in the last one year!
We had heard about Meditation ,however we never understood the science undelying the same and how it helps to cleanse negativity and replace with positivity.
Hats off to Mr Manker for his in depth knowledge of the subject and his simple and entertaining methods of presentation! I highly recommend…… trust one and all, especially for the ones with chronic diseases and with a lot of negativity in their mind to attend the online programmes and training camps organised by Pratibimb Charitable Trust. I am confident that the trust will succeed in their future endeavours and wish them all the best.

I am a professor and scientist of Biotechnology by occupation. My spouse had introduced me to this wonderful science. I did an online basic course in Life and Breath during the lockdown. I was going through a traumatic and stressful life, majorly due to the additional administrative duties of my profession. As I began practicing this science, I started feeling positive changes in my physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. I used to get bouts of severe colds, sinusitis, allergy and heartburn. Ever since I started practising this science with faith and discipline, these episodes have not troubled me. I have also cured gangrene nodules in my hand. I have become a positive person overall at home, work and in the community. I am in LOVE with this Science and have repeated the Basic course of Life and Breath five times. I am grateful that I was able to attend the recent residential basic course of Life and Breath. Five days of intensive residential course had helped me to revise the entire course and clarify all my doubts about the breathing exercises and rectifying a few minor errors that had crept in my practice. I got a new insight into the concept of RIGHT understanding and the laws of living. The whole class was full of love and the entire five days was an expression of joy. I am grateful to the Pratibimb family for a joyful lifetime experience and I bow to being a LIFELONG learner and PRACTITIONER of life and Breath Science.
I give thanks.

The Life and Breath Residential Camp at Rambhau Prabodhini, 5–9 March, was an amazing experience!
The Life and Breath Residential Camp at Rambhau Prabodhini, 5–9 March, was an amazing experience! The physical session has its own charm. With 50 members, it was like a large family. I didn’t feel even once that we were meeting them for the first time. The practice session in the morning, watching the sun rise, chai/ lunch/ dinner pe charcha – we would never get this opportunity otherwise. I had a couple of firsts – singing and talking about my experience in front of so many people. Right speech, endurance and patience are some of the takeaways for me from this camp. Given the opportunity, I would always like to attend the camp!

Having read some very sincere and eloquent testimonials I feel unequal to the task but let me make an attempt.
Having read some very sincere and eloquent testimonials I feel unequal to the task but let me make an attempt.
I retired some two decades back as Commander in Chief of Air Force Central Air Comnd. It was a satisfying career which included 41 yrs of combat flying on jet fighters including 3 tenures as instructor at Top Gun School of the IAF. Now here’s the thing about combat flying- it implies subjecting the body to high level of G Force in exces of 4-5 G’s on daily basis. And compression fracture in my lower vertebrae were testimony to this.. I also commanded a unit of Foxbat aircraft which flies in the stratosphere at Mach 3 (check Google). Despite flying in sub zero ambient temperature, skin friction at Mach 3 can generate external temperatures in excess of 250° c.
Additionally, flying in air operations during 1965 and 1971 wars and having your buddies shot up besides you generates a kind of stress that cannot be replicated elsewhere.
Having exposed myself to an extreme environment and as I approached the eighth decade of life, my body was feeling weathered and worn resulting in frequent hospitalisation and weeks confined to bed. Clearly my health was not in the pink when I signed up for Pravin ji’s Life & Breath-19. Remarkably, over the past 20 weeks, my health has improved to the extent that I am more mobile than ever before in recent months. I’ve dispensed with the walking stick that was required to support my body weight. Recent MRI confirms that my painful compression fracture is progressively getting healed and the agonising pain has abated. So am I out of the woods ? Not yet, but I’m pretty much close to getting there.
I’m deeply beholden to Pravin ji and would like to make a modest contribution towards the Pratibimb Trust for their outstanding social work. Kindly forward the link for making a contribution.

My experience started with the basic course batch 02 of Life and Breath..which was 5 days a week Monday to Friday during the lockdown. In its second week ..felt and realised I was at peace and my migraine had vanished. Later realised my shoulder pains subsiding. I rejoined the online batch 05 to understand more and I started to believe in it. Through my regular exercises and meditation, I realised that Prana energy within me. Doing it religiously made me realise that I had no pain in my right breast, which had a lump and used to pain alot before lockdown. Had planned for surgical removal of the lump. But Oh! What a miracle. I realised one morning that there’s no pain and was shocked. I couldn’t believe myself. I shared this in an introduction session.
It’s true you can become the author of your destiny and heal yourself.
Can’t thank enough this course that imparts life’s knowledge.

My name is Vrushali Deshpande, Chartered Accountant by qualification.
My name is Vrushali Deshpande, Chartered Accountant by qualification. My life was content and I was happy until June 2015 when I lost my house due to a structural damage to the building. Suddenly I was homeless …something which I just could not accept mentally. I moved to a rented house but every single day I prayed to buy a house and stay in my owned house. Somehow things were not happening and I was always mentally disturbed. On 30th May 2020, my friend told me that there is online class conducted by Life & Breath and you join it the session is starting from tomorrow. I did not question further and enrolled as those were lock down days and doing the course was possible for me.
I learned the breathing exercises including the mirror exercise. there was something very fascinating about the mirror exercise to me. After the regular breathing exercises I religiously did the mirror exercise. Day by day I started feeling more confident about myself. The situations around me were the same , I had the same qualification , the same job , stayed with the same family, however something within me was changing. Something the Universe was manifesting for me.
Everyday as I would tell the creative energy in me that it could do whatever I was wanting to do I felt a strange positivity, confidence and happiness within me. And there the everyday dream of buying my own house was getting conveyed to the universe with the dreaming with open eyes with the mirror exercise. Just in 6 months I could buy my own house. Not only the house but many of my small wishes like learning a foreign language , getting back to my singing, reading books also are getting realized. I truly feel that I have discovered the new power for which there is nothing that is Impossible.
I sincerely thank Pratibimb Chartiable Trust for helping me learn this science and for guiding me throughout.
Sincere and diligent practice of all the breathing exercises and mirror exercise is a Life changer, it is a miracle , it is the blessing of the Universe.
Gratitude, Thank you.

But, I was pleasantly surprised from day one of the course as the course modules were designed to enhance Physical, mental and spiritual well-being. After following the practices sincerely for four months, I am free of my thyroid pill. I feel more energetic throughout the day. My perception of life has changed. I am more tolerant , accepting and jovial. I thank Pratibimb trust wholeheartedly for designing such a wonderful course and support they give even after the course is done.

In this context, I would share that I was feeling very lonely, sad and was going through mental stress after the sad demise of my wife due to Cancer. I am a single person staying in Borivali, Mumbai since my son and daughter are settled abroad.
However, after joining the basic course of Life and Breath and LIMBS1/ LIMBS2 (currently ongoing), I could sustain my mental stress and get grossly involved in the learnings of LIMBS (Life is Mind, Body and Soul) by exercising the religious practice of 8 Breathing Exercises and through meditation.
I consider it as a blessing in disguise for joining an online course during the pandemic to fight mental and physical stress for stability.
The bottom line of my feelings : “I HAVE ACCEPTED THE FACT OF LIFE WHICH I CANNOT CHANGE BUT LEARNED TO FIGHT OUT“
Thanks to Pratibimb Team 👍🙏🙏

I wish to write about this LIFECHANGING course and The wonderful Guru we have
I wish to write about this LIFECHANGING course and The wonderful Guru we have the Opportunity to be taught by and meeting Gracious Usha Ma’am the epitome of generosity and dedication , I felt greatly overwhelmed.
I joined Life and Breath and frankly when I began attending classes in the Bhaktivedanta Hall I was totally clueless though each aspect of the course appealed to me I could not APPLY my mind to get into the THINK-FEEL-ACT mode which Sir would constantly remind us about.
It took me a long time and several repeats of the basic Course till I realised how beneficial it all is.
That was me and my Mental blocks which I had developed and had a resistance to learning the AFFIRMATIONS.
Slowly on realising the BENEFITS by mere exercises I began learning and repeating the Affirmations. Feeling their effect. Feeling their benefits on my emotional and mental well being.
I felt relieved and felt I was being Healed. My inhalers were discarded My anxiety levels decreased and inwardly I began feeling an inward calm by maintaining consistency and commitment in practice. I hope we all are aware of the huge benefit of attending the online classes. We are blessed manifold that we have the teachings right beside us. What more could we want? Practise classes are being literally poured into our laps. We cannot express enough Gratitude to the most reliable team full of generosity and integrity. Repeatedly offering this opportunity to All of us.
Do take what is being given so freely. No, I feel one should grab the chance to be able to practice and gain the immense benefits. I have learnt a lot. I am Still learning and still have a long learning road ahead. There could be pitfalls that take a person away from PRACTICE. But PLEASE make the Concerted effort to keep learning and Keep Practising. YOU WILL SURELY BENEFIT. My 7 odd decades of experience of Life ensure the belief that by following these teachings instead of reaching for medication YOU will thrive by Meditation. And be Spiritually enlightened also.
Wishing everyone All that is Good. Thanking you

I am Chartered Accountant by qualification. My Engineer brother, my son and I are whole time Directors running medium scale industries near Mumbai. I was introduced to Life & Breath course around 5 years ago and since then it has taken over my life. I did Life & Breath basic course, then the Advanced course in 2017 & 2018 and again basic course twice and am doing Advanced course online again. Personally I found understanding of this science only after attending the basic course for the 3rd time. It takes time for it to sink in and change the thinking pattern. The biggest impact this course has had is on my mind. This course has had a tremendous impact on my understanding of life, on understanding human mind, the human behaviour, why people behave the way they do, why things happen and how we should accept things. Proper understanding of basic laws of Living brings awareness but it is the application of this understanding that brings lasting benefits. What I have lost is anger, frustration, nervousness, giving less importance to materialistic values and what I have gained is better understanding, overall better health, self-discipline to some extent, calmness and no visits to the Doctor in recent years. Mind is the key to happiness and this gets imbibed firmly. After doing this course, I look happy, I feel happy, I am happy and happiness is what we need most. The meditation part is extraordinarily calming and immensely effective. The feeling of well-being pervades over all other feelings. Before doing this course, the focus of business was legal compliance while earning. After doing this course, the focus is as much on giving as on earning. The Principles of Cause & Effect, Give & take, Reason & Results applied even to business administration brings positive outcomes. I feel that application of Principles taught in this course, has brought recognition to our business, it being classified among top 100 MSMEs of India twice in as many years. The benefits to physical and mental health, the wisdom gained in understanding life that we are actually Divine beings in Human form is a Principle that one needs to practice all the time. This science can be the panacea that the world is looking for, for most of its illnesses of hatred, greed, avarice, jealousy, anger and can help spread Love and understanding in the individual, in society, across communities and across countries. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to everyone. To my knowledge no one has ever regretted having done this course.

I wanted to share my experience that I had 3 days ago. I had experienced this when I was doing the Mental Physics class with sir in 2018 as well and had dismissed it thinking it might be my imagination but when it happened again recently, I thought of sharing it. I woke up on Friday with an itchy throat. This was a classic symptom I get before a full-blown throat ache which lasts for few days and I usually end up taking antibiotics for it. I proceeded to do all my breathing exercises as I do everyday but with the difference that I directed the air/prana/light to my throat with every breath. I did this for the whole duration of all the exercises. After that I got back to my routine and didn’t think much of it. After an hour or so, I realised that the sore throat had completely gone! Incidents like these help my resolve to be regular with practice. I hope everyone experiences something like this personally as that is the best way to feel connected to what we are practicing, and it doesn’t seem like a chore or a formality.

I have been a Participant of Mental Physics in which I was systematically taught and made to practise breathing exercises, ways of meditation and other essential positives of life such as right and apt speech, right conduct etc which formed a few of the many other learnings in the course. In Mental Physics there is no “I teach you” attitude but “Let us all learn together” approach, which creates a very resilient bond between the teacher and the taught. I benefited tremendously from the breathing exercises shown in the class. My mental stamina increased manifold and my energy levels even at the end of the day remained high though I am diabetic. I felt and continue to feel confident, capable and more caring than ever before. Physically I feel more energetic and strong. I now am more calm and alert. I can take more out of a day than what I ever did before. What more need one say? If these reasons are not enough for exploring the teachings of Mental Physics, then I suppose nothing is.

My name is Dr. Manoj Malkan, aged 65 years and practising Allopathy since 40 years now. I have suffered from Severe nose allergies (Allergic Rhinitis) since childhood and Bronchial Asthma since early twenties. I was on daily Asthma inhalers since then till around 5 years ago when someone suggested me the Breathing program . I did 3 consecutive Basic courses of 22 weeks each. During this period of one and half years I progressively felt better and satisfied from within. My anxiety, shortness of temper waned off. Started having more confidence in myself and learnt to keep cool in adverse times. This was total change in my personality. Most importantly I almost forgot about my asthma and Inhalers. I dared to climb Palitana Jain temple (3600 steps) without inhaler. Travelled 4 Dham upto 13000 ft height without any breathing problems. Even today I religiously do my breathing exercises with Affirmations and living without any stress even in this COVID times. Life and Breath student, narrates his experience

Hello! I am Dr. Vrunda Patil, a dentist by profession. Managing profession and my other responsibilities as a mother, daughter, wife, sister, daughter in law, I used to feel restless. I had severe acidity, abdominal migraine and sleepless nights (Insomnia). I also had vocal nodule due to stress. I had to take antacids regularly. I was taking treatment for migraine. I was not at peace. I could not sit quietly even for 5 minutes. I tried to control everything around me. I wanted somebody, who could teach me how to meditate and how to be calm. As it is said, when a disciple is ready, the Guru appears. I got introduced to this course by our friend. I joined this ‘Life and Breath’ course conducted by ‘Pratibimb Charitable Trust’. I started doing breathing exercises regularly and of course meditation also (I repeated the course three times). I was pleasantly surprised that I did not have to take antacids for months; my migraine vanished; I started sleeping peacefully for 6 hours. A person like me started sitting for meditation for half an hour, I started accepting things as it is. My reaction to every situation changed. I became content. ‘I changed’ instead of changing people around me. I realised the value of ‘Gratitude’ in life. This course taught me a lot in fact it changed my life! I am doing my advance course also. Thank you very much!

I joined this course at the time when I was going through a lot of health issues and stress. My major concern was my skin problem. I had developed itchy dry patches on my face and neck. I tried allopathic ,it didn’t help much,so I tried homeopathic medicines. I was better but the problem kept recurring. Apart from this I had acidity, digestion issues and a lot of weakness. I struggled with my health problems for almost 5 years .Then a friend recommended this course. It was a magical journey for me. All my health issues started vanishing one by one . This course not only works on the physical level but it addresses your mental stress also. A lot of doubts and questions regarding life were answered too. These breathing exercises have now become a part of my life.

It was eight years ago on our way to Daman that myself and my husband met with a terrible car accident on the high way.
It was eight years ago on our way to Daman that myself and my husband met with a terrible car accident on the high way. He passed away on the spot and I was rushed to the hospital in a very bad condition with hardly any chances of survival. My three children who are settled abroad came and I underwent many major surgeries. After some time they also went back to resume their work and life. There was a big vacuum in my life, with no relatives or anyone from my family in Mumbai. House was very lonely and empty. I was all alone by myself. Sure enough I started slipping into depression and insomnia. I did not know anything about paperwork and how to manage my finances, tax liabilities etc. They say if no one is there, God comes to help you. Then I came across Life and Breath classes. They infused a new life into me. I loved the lectures and was very regular in my breathing exercises. It was like a miracle, in about 4-5 months into this science I managed to launch a book written by me. The articles had been a collection of my writings in the last 40-50 years of my life. I could also negotiate and take some very important financial deals, all by myself. My mind was very clear and calm and physically also I was fit to go to the beach for long walks. It changed my life completely. I was back to my normal laughter and started helping senior citizens in counselling them and sharing their emotional and mental problems . Now I lead a very happy and a meaningful life , thanks to my breathing excercises and meditation. Breathing exercises for the well being of body and meditation for the calm and clear mind.

The breathing exercises have been a great help to me as I started with the classes.I had skin issues for which I was under treatment since a long time and the recovery to normal was progressing very slowly. All treatment seemed to come to a wall and there was nothing further left to explore. I started the breathing exercises very matter of fact as a routine as the class went on. And I continued with the practices. Within a span of a couple of months of practices ,I immediately noticed the change that I had undergone not just in my skin but also in my overall mindset. I’m deeply indebted to the practices for the natural progression to complete remission of my skin ailment. Practices ensure that I remain healthy and happy.

I have benefited tremendously from the breathing exercises. Physically I feel more energetic and strong. My Asthama is totally under control. Not had an attack for years now. Previously every change of season brought about an attack of bronchitis and respiratory difficulty. Mentally I am calm and alert. Previously I just behaved calm. I had issues with suppressed anger. Now, I don’t feel angry and if I do I can channelise it instead of internalizing it. Breathing exercises and meditation should be made a part of everyone’s life and I urge everyone to move on the path leading to complete physical and mental wellbeing.

Being an ambitious Chartered Accountant life had been very chaotic with too many due dates and compliance’s to be managed. Spending endless hours in front of screen and multitasking took toll on my physical and mental health. Due to sedentary lifestyle body aches were common. Nasal congestion and headaches were part of life. Fear of missing on deadlines and procrastination constantly occupied the mind with sleepless nights. Luckily I was introduced to the teachings on life and breath. Breathing exercises brought in more flexibility and body aches kept reducing. Nasal congestion and headaches vanished. I became more aware and started staying in present. Many questions which kept troubling me were answered in a scientific manner hence addressing my mental stress. I am now more at peace and working more efficiently than before with extra vigour.

I have been regularly attending his classes since the past 3 years. The breathing exercises are so powerful & effective that I could feel the energy increasing to another level. The exercises made my pressure levels normal & I was able to focus & concentrate more than before. I regularly do these breathing exercises daily in the morning or sometimes in the evening. I have benefitted a lot from these exercises for my health issues such as pressure & acidity. Thanks to Pravin sir for teaching us these beautiful & much needed exercises for our daily routine life.

experience with the Life and Breath course
I have been learning and practicing breathing exercises in various forms for over twenty years. Breath is master-key to ones Mind.
I have been learning and practicing breathing exercises in various forms for over twenty years. Breath is master-key to ones Mind. Learning under great teachers one gets adept in controlling rhythm of breath. Spontaneous emotional, mental and psychological disturbances cannot be restrained by will if there is no training in breathing methods. But by controlling and adjusting breath, i allow favourable release of endocrinal and exocrinal chemicals that allow healing of my body. I have permanently healed gross ophthalmic defects (chronic diplopia) under my teacher’s guidance, in one single session of Creative breath (Feb 2016). By following breathing technique s (kriya s and pranayama s),I can control my breathing rhythm and there by maintain harmonious chemical and thereby emotional balance. Throat widening breaths and their constant awareness moment to moment have built a solid immune system and mind power. Mind doesn’t get weakened and anxiousl instantly, as it has done it’s homework through breathing methods. In today s Pandemic, it’s a miracle-key in ones being. It is very objective and repeatable experience of health and joy. With immense gratitude and reverence, I plead all to make this practice a essential lifestyle. I suffered autoimmune disease for over thirty years and have undergone Liver transplant recently. With constant awareness on deep throat widening breaths I have sailed through these difficult times. There is no bitter memory. The mind is fresh, enthusiastic and bubbly like a child. Every moment of breath is so blissful. I am free, happy and available to life. There is great release and relief, as I breath and watch this drama of the world. As I give my thanks to my teachers….. There is pure silence… That deep silence… Best explained in silence.

When I was introduced to this course I did not know what to expect .I found a relief to my sinus problem in the first three days of practicing the breathing excersises, a problem that I had accepted as a part of my life since childhood. today I do not remember the last time I sneezed. All of this without popping a single pill.This course taught me how to live a life where i can attract the situations in my life without having to micro-manage.I now live in the midst of intensity but away from stress as i was taught how to live in a healthy state of mind irrespective of external circumstances.This course that cannot be adequately valued, is the definition of affordable. Not only do these teachings put us on a great journey of self discovery but thorough practices and tecniques helps us develope within us this unique zeal to walk the path. I thank the very day this method was brought to my notice as I compare what I was to the possibility of what I can be as I continue on this road.

Greetings. I am Nanda Kukreja, a teacher by profession. Training young minds with differing levels of intelligence can take a toll on one’s patience. I used to be very short tempered. BREATHING EXERCISES have helped me to connect with my inner peace and made me much calmer than I was. NOW.. ‘Peace flows through my heart ♥️, it runs through me like rays and stabs the heart of Noise and Worries, because Peace is the BREATH of the UNIVERSE. Breathing exercises have also reduced my small aches and pains and made me considerably healthier.

I recently attended Life and Breath Basic Course, delivered for the first time through an on line video platform. This being my first foray into any course on meditation or breathing, I joined with some skepticisim and because of some persuasion from Mr. Mohan Vutha. I was pleasantly surprised when I went tnhrough the course, myself. I have experienced an increased sense of wellbeing even through the short period of practice following the course. I am confident that with sustained practice of the techniques taught in the course, it is only a matter of time before I see tangible benefits and experience improved health outcomes. I found our course coordinator to be an inspirational teacher and a master communicator, who used his wit often to drive home important concepts. He was supported by an excellent dedicated team which set up and maintained a learning environment which was comparable to a face to face session. It provided scope for extensive interraction, coaching and feedback to all students. All in all a very enjoyable and enriching experience, which I would recommend to anyone. Best Regards,

I attended the Life and Breath program conducted by Pratibimb Trust online from May 4 to 30. Apart from the fact that many of us with our sedentary lifestyles and unwise eating and drinking habits badly need a program like L&B, there are several other reasons to opt for this superb program. Let me list them. 1) The course conductors: be in Pravinji or Ushaji or the other volunteers who chip in, the level of professionalism you see in these persons is amazing. Matter-of-fact, realistic, down-to-earth and above all simple and clear – what more do you want? 2) The universality of approach: There are no conditions except you need to understand simple English, and that you have to work hard and be sincere. No religious overtones, no hidden agenda. 3) The genuine care for and interest in the participants, seen through the constant inspection of how they do the exercises and gentle corrections 4) The continuum provided by free weekly practice sessions, and open offer to guide groups willing to practice together 5) The absurdly low price of Rs 1,500 for 30 solid hours they commit to the program. And more, in fact, in answering questions and responding on WA I rest my case. Guys and girls, go for it. It’s your body, mind and spirit that will benefit. And you don’t even have to thank me.

Life and Breath basic course Participant talks about the benefits she has derived from regular practice of the breathing exercises
This is the magic of LIFE and BREATH. Akshata was so severely asthmatic that she had to inhale medicines at least 10 times a day.
This is the magic of LIFE and BREATH. Akshata was so severely asthmatic that she had to inhale medicines at least 10 times a day. Some bouts would be so critical that she had to have immediate access to the inhalers. She started keeping inhalers in various places; purse, office desk, dressing table, bathroom, bed… You name it. Then her mom brought her to Pratibimb’s LIFE and BREATH program. She started practising the breathing exercises and she soon got rid of her medicines for asthma. She also saves a lot of money that she spent on medicines. Plus she now avoids side effects of medicines. Listen to her…

MESSAGE FROM DINESH KEJRIWAL – a Participant of LIFE and BREATH at Chinmaya Vibhooti in October 2019 and at Chembur

A Big Thanks to The Pratibimb Trust especially Pravin sir, Usha ma’am and Naresh for curing my wife Shashi from ASTHMA.

She did the breathing exercises regularly and hence the results. Also the course brought lot of positivity in her and now we are confident that her eyes also will be ok. Thanks to all in LIFE AND BREATH . Thanks for the Creative breath by you all for Shashi. May God bless you all.

Three years ago I came into this science through a very good friend. I was timid,underconfident and suffered from hypothyroidism. Somehow the vibes of my teachers and their teachings pulled me gradually into this science. The more I practised the more I loved the aura of the course. The first thing I overcame was my fear of speaking up and expressing myself openly. I started enjoying a sense of harmony in and around me. The Law of Attraction pulled up my entity among my family and friends. I started to experience joy without reason. One fine day, during my routine practice of the breathing exercises, a sebaceous cyst which I had had below my neck region for my years just burst open. My doctor was quite surprised and suggested I get medical assistance, but I realised that the bursting of the cyst had been due to the exercises. I became religious in my practice and the cyst has never returned. My stress levels were under control, my thought process had calmed down when another Eureka moment occurred. My thyroid test revealed that for the first time in 9 years the levels were absolutely normal. Ever since that day consistent, religious practice of the breathing exercises and meditation became part of my schedule. My thought process, my attitude towards life, my approach to dealing with things has changed dramatically. I have entered the Advance Course-the Inner Chamber and further understood the depth of the science. My heartfelt gratitude towards my teachers, because of whom I have held on to my practice. Presently I can’t imagine my life without this science. I am what I am today due to this beautiful science of Life and Breath.

A miracle shared by our Bhaktivedanta Participant, Akshata, of LIFE and BREATH course. The batch concluded on Sunday, 15th December 2019. Hi pravin sir..last week I feel miracle happened. I had asthma since I was 4 years. Past one year it increased so much that I took inhaler 8 times a day. From past 10 days I haven’t taken inhaler even once. Infact am doing high intensity work out in gym and today I did dusting of my room and nothing is bothering me. I am really thankful to the course and you are a great teacher. God bless.

Namaskar !!! I would like to share my experience with Life and Breath. With the teachings of the course I have seen many positive changes in my life. I try to avoid saying negative things as we always remember Sir’s words “Tathasthu” I have calcification on the tendons and the class agreed to help me improve my condition through creative breath. In the class when the creative breath was practiced, I could feel some healing working on me and there was a warmth I felt in my pain area. I thereafter practiced this during the week and feel some improvement and my pain has reduced. I would like to thank the class for the same. Thank you Sir for selflessly enlightening us with the learnings. Your passion to teach and answer any doubt kept us motivated not to miss even one class. I feel happy all over !!!

Dear Pravin Sir Like all good things, this extraordinary 20 week program, alas, is coming to an end, without our realising it.
Dear Pravin Sir Like all good things, this extraordinary 20 week program, alas, is coming to an end, without our realising it. Time really flies! When we started, we were curious, like any other student, partly apprehensive and above all eager to know where this course would take us. Also, whether it was going to be really worth our time and efforts! Now that the course has reached it logical conclusion we can very confidetly say, respected Sir, we have changed for good. We are much healthier physically, much more confident mentally and certainly much better placed to face the daily rigmaroles of our lives. As a bonus, we are now much more positive about life and have become more human in our approach. We now have no hesitation in greeting a stranger with a smile, in fact would now find it quite natural to do so Thank you Sir and to steal a word from your dictionary, Tathatsu Sincerely and with deepest gratitude Mihir Bhatt with wife Kirti

Roochy Pandya, our advance course Participant, shares her experience: I have been practicing the breathing exercises since June 2017. I was hypertensive and my blood pressure was routinely in the region of 180/100. Consistent practice helped me lower my b.p. My medication was halved last year and ten days back the doctor asked me to stop it completely. I have been maintaining normal b.p. ever since.

Hello friends, I am Puja Dalmia. I want to share my experience which I went through while doing my mentalphysics exercises of Pratibimb.
Hello friends, I am Puja Dalmia. I want to share my experience which I went through while doing my mentalphysics exercises of Pratibimb. Last week I was going through severe pain of cervical spondylitis. It becomes severe during the winters. I had to take painkillers for 4 days but there was no improvement. Last Sunday when I came for class, it was becoming difficult to even sit. This week on Tuesday I remembered of getting relief from this pain earlier by doing this particular breath called breath of resurrection. So starting with all basic breathing exercises I did the breath of resurrection followed by Om chanting in lying down position. Suddenly I felt the pain disappear completely. Next day when I woke up I again had the pain. The first thing I did was the breath of resurrection and again the pain went away. So I decided I will do this exercise regularly every morning. I will not say that I have healed completely but the intensity of the pain has reduced. Now I treat this breath as magic because it works instantly .This week I’m feeling much better. I feel with regular practice I can heal myself from this problem. I want to tell you that now whatever I do in life, I do it with joy and get utmost satisfaction in all the small things I do. I recommend the course Life and Breath to every person who wishes to lead a healthier and happier life.

UNIVERSE PAYS BACK – LAW OF GIVE AND TAKE Sir, I want to convey the benefits derived by us from Life & Breath program
UNIVERSE PAYS BACK – LAW OF GIVE AND TAKE Sir, I want to convey the benefits derived by us from Life & Breath program Our workmen, about 150+, were resisting introduction of Provident fund benefits as their take home wages would reduce by about 1000 pm. They did not agree to PF introduction. After understanding the law of GIVING we were determined to give them benefits. So we increased their wages by 1000 and then introduced PF. This means we paid employees as well as employers contribution the cost being double of what we had planned. So, the workers are now saving about 25000 to 35000 every year something that they could never have even dreamt. So after say 20 or 25 years when they retire they will have about 10 lakhs savings (including interest). The interesting part is that though we were paying huge amounts our profits did not come down, it has only increased. Besides, the universe has rewarded us with 2 awards one as top100 SME of India award in 2018 and now as India’s leading SME 2019 award by world recognised Dun & Bradstreet research organisation. This is the real reward of GIVING to benefit others that we learnt in Life& Breath program (though we did not give with any such expectations). I can see now how the universal laws work. Thank you

A Participant of LIFE and BREATH shares her experience: Good morning Sir. My name is Tina Mehta. 57 years of age. As I am in the car on my way to Pune, am jotting down all your questions. I am thoroughly enjoying this course. My practice starts around 7 am with Pranayam and the memory developing breath, followed by the affirmation (memorized). Around 4.30 pm again pranayam and all the exercises except the one taught to us last Sunday. (Have not remembered the name). All the affirmations have been memorized, but have been able to memorize only the first meditation affirmation. I look forward to these exercises 3 times a day. I have only meditated twice do far. And felt so relaxed that I wanted to go back to sleep. But the breathing exercise affirmations are almost like meditation for me. The 1st breath affirmation I can actually see a diya-like light in the centre of my forehead. I have never felt happier, lack of fear and calm as well as confident with your class. Thank you Sir for all your guidance and I thank Rashna for recommending this course to me. Can’t wait for my next class.

In depth knowledge of Manker Sir made this program, excellent. Thanks Manker Sir and Usha Ma’am. There is improvement in Geeta’s BP and sugar problem and we have learnt simple exercises to keep us healthy. The location and surrounding areas of Chinmaya Vibhooti are naturally beautiful. From the sun rise till sunset, whole area is under positive energy of the universe. The Swanubhooti Vatika, Pranav Ganesh Mandir and Maruti Mandir are lovely places. We thank the Trustees of Pratibimb for organising the camp at such a wonderful place.

Feedback of Participant of Chinmaya Vibhooti Residential Camp in April, 19* Residential facilities, Food arrangements were good, Conference Hall, Audio Visual arrangements were very good. While confronting many issues in day to day life, there was confusion (in two minds) earlier. After attending this program, there is definitely better clarity and belief in handling them. All in all, a unique and memorable experience. Sitting in class room sessions for more than 9 hours a day would have been unthinkable! But it happened with lot of intetest not just for a day but for five consecutive days. This speaks volumes about the quality of the sessions!

Good morning Sir. Though I have learnt breathing exercises few years ago, I started practicing it regularly 3/4 months ago.
Good morning Sir. Though I have learnt breathing exercises few years ago, I started practicing it regularly 3/4 months ago. I was infected with Covid 19 due to direct contact with a person who herself didn’t knew she was positive. Since I was practicing breathing exercises regularly the following were the advantages. 1. Though my virus load was 18, which is infectious, my chest scan was perfectly normal. 2. Negligible symptoms. Only one day I had raised body temperature only upto 99.8°F 3. No headache, no weakness, which otherwise is very common in even mildest cases. 4. No cough or breathlessness Today I completed my home quarantine period. Iam fit and back to my normal routine. I want to express my gratitude to my teachers. I thank all those who are working and learning with Pratibimb charitable trust. Thanks everyone
