Breathing Techniques for Peace of Mind

Our monkey mind is fickle and it is difficult to focus it. Our fickle mind is influenced by the environment and our never-ending desires. Thus, our wandering mind ties us in bondage. To attain liberation, we need to look inward. This article reveals useful breathing techniques for peace of mind. These techniques can help your mind become serene by promoting positive feelings of patience, vigor and love.
