Books on Swara Yoga All the well known spiritual books say something about the importance of the breath and swaras. There are two that are the most important on this topic: Swara Chintamani and Shiva Swarodhaya. She starts with a prayer and obescience to the Lord Iswara and then asks about all manner of things to which Lord Shiva answers that everything depends on swara; that "If breath is going out and coming in, there is life and if the movement stops, the body perishes. Shiva answers Parvati's questions patiently and fully and goes on the tell her all about swara saying that "for all beings, breath is only the base. Origin: Preserved in Guru Disciple tradition from the begening of the universe. Written in Sanskrit book-form, latter in between

I shall tell hereafter the superior Yearly Results, listen. At the com- mencement of the year whichever Tatwa is found in the Swara its result I shall tell. At the commencement of a year Lunar the first 8 days represent one ayana; From Chathurdasi end to Amavasya it is Santlii being the middle.

Just as sun's rays are hidden at twilight the swara is also hidden at this time.

Swara Chintamani

Whoever experiences the Moon's Nadi at the close of Chathurdasi and the Sun's Nadi at the commencement of Amavasya he will live for one frill year. If the Swaras are contrary to the above, that is if Sun's Swara at the end of 16 Chathurdasi and the Moon's at the beginning of Ainavasya he will have hann and death.

One has to examine well for the first 3 days from the commencement of a year and also for five weeks daily and understand. At the commencement of the year on Dwithiyai if the Moon's Nadi func- tions every now and then he will live with a healthy body that year.

As stated above whoever has the frmctioning of Chandra Nadi for 8 days will live a long life. If the Moon does not function as stated above but if the Sun functions in- stead and if it is Prathamai there will be quarrels; if Dwithiyai loss of wealth; if Thrithiyai travels and roaming about; if Chathurti hann; if Panchami agitation in the country; if Shasti loss of king; if Sapthami sickness and if Ashtami death will occur.

First of all the day's swara has to be examined and then the Tatwa Swara examined. If the day's swara differs from Tatwa swara it will be sorrowful, which has to be understood.

If there is Tejas Tatwa, droughts; if Vayu Tatwa, good health; ifAkash all harmful; and if Earth or Water Tatwa growth of vegetation may have to be stated.

There are four items like Yearly results, Ayana results, Paksha results and Day's results. I shall tell hereafter these. Out of the above four if one is auspicious there will be poor effect, if two medium effect, if three good effect and if four very good results.

If the above-mentioned four items combine with auspicious Tatwasand auspicious ghatia, the Nadis bestow favourable results however cmel the action is. To some people so many otlier people go. Still, even if Swara, omen etc. How to determine these, I shall tell. While going on travel if the Moon functions or even if the Solar Nadi is at the end leaning on Lunar Nadi or if there is a frill flow of air in the nose it is auspicious. At this time if the Solar Nadi alone functions or if there is absence of breath the travel will be unfavorable.

If either from Lunar or from Solar Nadi the air touches the lower portion of the nostril and passes, there will be good reputation, success, auspiciousness etc. Either from the Solar or from the Lunar Nadi Vayu Tatwa runs there will be fulfilment of desired objects. If Vayu Tatwa runs in Solar Nidi, anti-clockwise or outside the nose, all the results will be untoward.

When air is passing in the right nostril or when it passes from left to right, there will be some auspiciousness. If it proceeds from right to left there will be a little inauspiciousness. If the air is coming in and out in the left nostril the results will be obtained slowly and in the same manner if it passes in the Surya Nadi the object will be fulfilled soon. If the Lunar Nadi moves on a day of auspicious star the auspicious under- taking will prove beneficial.

If the Solar Nadi moves then, the results will be mixed. Even though it is common to all to experience Hamsa inhaling and exhal- ing , yet the movement of Hamsa takes place based on auspicious or inauspi- cious kanna of people and the results will be accordingly. Even though the Hamsa principle is same to all yet the air being whirled by oxygen moves in one man in Solar Nadi in another in Lunar Nadi, still in an- other in Sushumna Nadi, for some it will be going out and for some it will be coming in.

It is stated that whoever has understood the knowledge of Swara is the knower of all things. Still, if one does not leam this he is a dunce. Knowledge of Swara enables one to understand the merit or demerit of previous births and therefore one should leam such a knowledge. Thus ends chapter eight on Effects of year, month etc. I shall explain the Chapter on Tatwas which represent my five faces and which afford knowledge to the three worlds.

By understanding the colours, tastes and regions of the five Tatwas one can understand all the objects of the world. Prithvi Tatwa is yellow, square, 12 inches length, extending from the centre of the nostril and good for cultivation works. Jala Tatwa is of semi-lunar shape, white colour astringent taste, 16 inches in length, touching the lower position of the nostril and good for propitiation cere- monies.

In another text white colour, astringent taste, semi-circle and 6 inches length are attributed. Agni Tatwa is triangle in shape, fire colour, pungent taste, 8 inches in length, touching the outer nose and good for religious ceremonies. Vayu Tatwa ia of circular shape, blue colour, sweet taste, 4 inches in length, air crossing the nostril and good for matters governing movements. Akash Tatwa is shapeless, distanceless, colourless and permeates the uni- verse everywhere.

Tins is suitable for meditation. The above mentioned are the special characteristics of Tatwas. Hereafter those of the mixed Tatwas are being stated. If Vayu and Jala mix such air will extend profusely outside the face. If this happens all the undertakings will be spoiled. If Prithvi and Jala mix the air will move swiftly. Such air passing from ei- ther left to right or right to left causes disintegration like Kalakanta.

If Agni and Vayu mix the air produces sound. It is called Eclipse time. This is capable of causing death. If Vayu moves leaving Akash the air is passing subtly in the internal hole of the nostril and it is called Dhumra Kala.

At this time there will be loss of profitable undertakings. Then I shall explain the method of tracing the seat of Tatwas, Devi. The breath should move from the heart to chin at a regular gap of an inch. If the air faces the chin with right and left sides equal it is called Hanuman Nadi and if it moves at the end of chin it is is called Hara Nadi The air that touches the middle of tlie nostril is Earth, that touches the lower portion is Water, that touches the upper portion is Fire, that touches both sides is Air and that is quite feeble is Ether.

When the air comes up from the Navel, the first four inches are Prithvi, the next up to 8 inches Jala, the next up to 12 inches Tejas, the next up to 16 inches Vayu and the last portion up to 20 inches Akash. The middle of the nostril is Earth, the lower portion is water, the upper por- tion is Fire, the side portion is Air and motionlessness is Ether.

Oh Devi, thus the superb Santhi Nadis have to be examined. The method of Identification of the Tatwas are being stated very secretly. The Earth is a little bit warm. Fire is quite hot. Vayu is a little bit cold. Water ia full l y cold. The Tatwas usually move in tlie appropriate regions as stated above. If they do so it is good.

If they move contrarily untoward results emerge. Vayu by Jupiter and Akash by Kethu. Thus the order is in tlie left nostril, In the Solar Nadi, Prithvi is governed by tlie Sun. Thus tlie order is in tlie right nostril. While the Lunar Nadi is functioning Vayu. Bhumi and Jala Tatwas are auspicious. While the Solar Nadi is functioning it has to be understood that these are harmful.

Auspicious functions should not be done then. They are Strong in these diks. Some say that Akash faces East and Jala sky. It is good for construction of fort, house, mansion, city, village and gardens, hi war he will have success.

The approaching anny will have terror, mutilation and defeat. The person in the station will have victory. When Jala Tatwa is operating, marriages, auspicious functions, travels, coronation, sinking of wells, ponds and tanks, construction of houses, entry into house, village, city etc. At the time of a query if Jala Tatwa arises the above mentioned things will prove auspicious.

When Agni Tatwa is operating, hann, death It is stated that if Vayu Tatwa runs all deeds of movements have to be made. Mounting on a horse for the first time, driving vehicles or motors, riding on horses, elephants, cows, camel etc,, practice of mantra like Mohana, Uc- chatana, Vidveshana, Akarsana etc.

For going on war, travels and marriages this is not suitable. If Akash Tatwa functions it is quite ordinary Either auspiciousness or in- auspiciousness, gein or loss do not occur. For Yogis this is very good for yoga practice. Archanas to deities, meeitation, concentration, installation mantra- tantras, knowledge of salvation etc. Parvati, thus about Tatwas have been Stated. If the breath moves feebly it is called Bala Swara child. Acts during this period yield poor results.

The breath which comes slowly but steadily is called Kumara youth. The resul i ts of this time are of medium nature. The breath with sound is auspicious and is called Vridda adult. The matters done or enquired about at this time yield favourable results. If the Swara is obstructed or defective it is called Mrita Swara death. On account of this there will be obstacle to the undertaking. The place for Prithvi is tongue, that for Jala is sexual organs, that for Agni is eyes, that for Vayu is nose and that for Akash is ears.

Oh Parvati! One has to understand the states of Swasa like whirling, crooked, splitting, jerking, burning, spoiling, sleeping and setting. Oh, venerable Lady! If the air goes up touching, it is called 'ValithanT and this is harmful for everything. If the air leaving Vayu Tatwa touches tlie bottom of tlie wall and turns back in the middle it is called 'Vakritam'.

Swara chintamani; divination by breath.

This causes destruction of everything. Following Tejas Tatwa if it touches in two ways it is called 'Sphutitham'. This affords comforts to people. If the air mutilitates knowingly or unknowingly, inadvertently it is called 'Skalitam'. Thjs is harmful. If tlie air mutilates knowingly or unknowingly and at the same time warm it is also called 'SphutitanT At this time efforts will break into two.

If tlie swara bums leaving Agni Tattwa it is called 'JwalitanT. On occount of this enormous troubles arise. If there is extreme heat and excessive burning it is called Agni'. On account of this there will be defeat in war and death may result. If the air joins strongly in both tlie nostrils and on both the sides it is hill with many colours. On account of this, as there is a mixture of fullness and pau- city, many Tatwas arise.

There is nothing more than this. The Swasa that is pure without any of the above mentioned bad qualities is superior. Prithvi denotes one day; Jala one muhurtha 48 minutes ; Agni one ghati 24 minutes ; Vayu one month; and Akash one year. Thus one has to follow the time and tell about the time limit for the fruition of an event.

Chintamani pdf swara

Ghatika gives hill effect, day three-fourths, tlie month half and the year quar- ter results. If air comes out of the nostrils profusely without sound it is called 'Dwam- samanam'. Consequently all tlie undertakings will be destroyed. There is nothing more, than this. The Swasa that is pure without any of tlie above mentioned bad qualities is superior.

In doubtful cases or queries one has to think over the strength of Tatwas ap- 21 pearing first as well as later and undertake. Prithvi denotes sitting; Jala denotes coining; Agni denotes sleeping; Vayu denotes travelling; and Akash meditating. These have to be stated ac- cordingly. The query denotes a near-by person, if Jala Tattwa arises; the person posited there itself if Pithhvi; the person gone outside if Yam; the sickly per- son if Agni; and a dead person if Akash.

In query about gains, Jala denotes favour, Bhumi denotes enjoyment, Tejas denotes victory in war and Vayu denotes fleeing. In a query about war the Prithvi denotes fear and defeat to the Yayee ad- vancing army and victory to Sthayee local army.

Prithvi denotes war, Jala denotes peace, Agni denotes victory, Vayu de- notes defeat and Akash denotes death. In a query about war if Jala Bhuts arises victory is to the Yayee and defeat to the Sthayee. Vayu denotes Sankrama caste mixed. Other Bhutas associating with this will determine the caste connected. Thus a yogi should concentrate with a steady mind and after thinking over he should predict the results.

Thus ends chapter nine dealing with Tatwas. Nose, ears, eyes, face, sexual organs, anus and testicles are the seven places for consideration. Aperson having the knowledge ofMoola Swara should examine the testicles. D the last ruler of Kakatiyas of Oruganti.

The yogi might have undertaken to write in what is called 'JANU - TELUGU" and dvipada metre, because the sanskritic style adopted by the champu writers could not easily be understood by the common masses. There are very few biographical details about the author's persona history.

A statement in the work as follows: There was a general tradition among the ministers of Telugu Kingdoms to practice yoga, particularly swarayoga techniques in the war field activities. The whole work is written in a simple, easy to under- stand language and at the same time keeping in view the dignity of the theme.

It advices to check the sequence between bowel move- ments and urination. Urination at the time of the left Swara Ida is a healthy sign. But if the urine comes at intervals, the Prana is not functioning optimally, especially if urination is during the right Swara. This is an indication of worry or anxiety and trouble.

First urine mutra should come, then excreta Mala then gas vayu. This is a sign of success in any plan. But if all three come together at once definitely the system is disturbed and there is some pranic imbalance between Ida and Pingala.

The Mind's Two Functions The ancient symbols, sun and moon, describe two functions which have been known to yogis for countless S5jj generations and is on the verge of being understood by modern psychology in our time. Yoga describes how two currents wind up through the spine to the brain- It concerns the two aspects of our being, One current represents the body's energy and physical activity, but also partially the energy in the nenous system and the brain.

The other cur- rent stands for the mental aspect of our being-the mind. Up till now, psychology has localized the same two functions described by yoga to the two brain hemispheres. Concerning our conscious totality, modern psychology and science in general tend to exaggerate the importance of the brain at the cost of the rest of the system, especially tho heart.

They frcsist that the two nostrils should be made to work evenfy, i. To open up the nostrils, they take the hetp of a contrivance called 'Yoga-Danda' 'Kubadi' in Northern fndfan Fanguages. This is a she ft crutch! The aim-pit opposite to the bfocked nostril is subjected to this pressure. One just sits with the 'crutch' in the arm-pit supporting oneseff to some extent on the same. And this does work, i. It is too early to say anything lite in the matter.

To modern iology, even the alternate blockade of one of the nostrils mething new. And, there is, at least for the present no omico-physicl-gica!

We have, however, good clinical evidence to tise that this 'alternate breathing, may help to some nt in bringing about a 'balance' in the system, and hence lave made ourselves bold to refer to this form of traditional ;c breathing method, Fig, 7 YOGA-DAN DA EFFECT A kymograhic recor to show how a partial congestion in nostril can be relieved in a matter of a few seconds by ting pressure on the opposite arm-pit.

Left Til shows partial blocking. This is contirmed by changing pens, both for ordinay and forceed breathing. Then the a-Danda is placed under the left arm-pit i.

There is practically no effect on the left nostril but the osite open one is showing a tendenery to get blocked itly. The Yoga-Danda is then shifted to the opposite -pit The result is almost immediate as can be seen in this rd.

The left nostril has opened in about 25 seconds and the pressure exerted by the breath from the two nostrils is almost equal. Even when the Yoga-Danda is removed, the pressure of breath remains equal for a long time, but again the right nostril is showing partial congestion this time. Yoga- Danda kept in the arm-pit on the same side has again failed to produce required effects.

If the air is coming in and out in the left nostril the results will be obtained slowly and in the same manner if it passes in the Surya Nadi the object will be fulfilled soon. If the Lunar Nadi moves on a day of auspicious star the auspicious under- taking will prove beneficial. If the Solar Nadi moves then, the results will be mixed. Even though it is common to all to experience Hamsa inhaling and exhal- ing , yet the movement of Hamsa takes place based on auspicious or inauspi- cious karma of people and the results will be accordingly.

Even though the Hamsa principle is same to all yet the air being whirled by oxygen moves in one man in Solar Nadi in another in Lunar Nadi, still in an- other in Sushumna Nadi, for some it will be going out and for some it will be coming in.

It is stated that whoever has understood the knowledge of Swara is the knower of all things. Still, if one does not learn this he is a dunce. Knowledge of Swara enables one to understand the merit or demerit of previous births and therefore one should learn such a knowledge. Thus ends chapter eight on Effects of year, month etc.

I shall explain the Chapter on Tatwas which represent my five faces and which afford knowledge to the three worlds. By understanding the colours, tastes and regions of the five Tatwas one can understand all the objects of the world.

Prithvi Tatwa is yellow, square, 12 inches length, extending from the centre of the nostril and good for cultivation works. In another text yellow colour, sweetness, oxygen and 12 inches length are at- tributed.

Jala Tatwa is of semi-lunar shape, white colour astringent taste, 16 inches in length, touching the lower position of the nostril and good for propitiation cere- monies. In another text white colour, astringent taste, semi-circle and 6 inches length are attributed. Agni Tatwa is triangle in shape, fire colour, pungent taste, 8 inches in length, touching the outer nose and good for religious ceremonies.

In another text red colour, salt taste, triangle and 4 inches length arr e attrib- uted. Vayu Tatwa ia of circular shape, blue colour, sweet taste, 4 inches in length, air crossing the nostril and good for matters governing movements. In another text black colour, sour taste, hexagon and 4 inches length are attrib- uted. Akash Tatwa is shapeless, distanceless, colourless and permeates the uni- verse everywhere.

This is suitable for meditation. In another text shapelessness, crystal colour, bitterness and one inch length are attributed 7.

The above mentioned are the special characteristics of Tatwas. Hereafter those of the mixed Tatwas are being stated. If Vayu and Jala mix such air will extend profusely outside the face. If this happens all the undertakings will be spoiled.

If Prithvi and Jala mix the air will move swiftly. Such air passing from ei- ther left to right or right to left causes disintegration like Kalakanta. If Agni and Vayu mix the air produces sound. It is called Eclipse time. This is capable of causing death. If Vayu moves leaving Akash the air is passing subtly in the internal hole of the nostril and it is called Dhumra Kala. At this time there will be loss of profitable undertakings. Then I shall explain the method of tracing the seat of Tatwas, Devi.

The breath should move from the heart to chin at a regular gap of an inch. If the air faces the chin with right and left sides equal it is called Hanuman Nadi and if it moves at the end of chin it is is called Hara Nadi The air that touches the middle of the nostril is Earth, that touches the lower portion is Water, that touches the upper portion is Fire, that touches both sides is Air and that is quite feeble is Ether.

When the air comes up from the Navel, the first four inches are Prithvi, the next up to 8 inches Jala, the next up to I2 inches Tejas, the next up to 16 inches Vayu and the last portion up to 20 inches Akash. The middle of the nostril is Earth, the lower portion is water, the upper por- tion is Fire, the side portion is Air and motionlessness is Ether.

Oh Devi, thus the superb Santhi Nadis have to be examined. The method of Identification of the Tatwas are being stated very secretly. The Earth is a little bit warm. Fire is quite hot. Vayu is a little bit cold. Water ia full l y cold. The Tatwas usually move in the appropriate regions as stated above. If they do so it is good. If they move contrarily untoward results emerge. Vayu by Jupiter and Akash by Kethu.

Thus the order is in the left nostril, In the Solar Nadi, Prithvi is governed by the Sun. Thus the order is in the right nostril.

While the Lunar Nadi is functioning Vayu. Bhumi and Jala Tatwas are auspicious. While the Solar Nadi is functioning it has to be understood that these are harmful. Auspicious functions should not be done then. They are Strong in these diks. Some say that Akash faces East and Jala sky. It is good for construction of fort, house, mansion, city, village and gardens. In war he will have success.

The approaching army will have terror, mutilation and defeat. The person in the station will have victory. When Jala Tatwa is operating, marriages, auspicious functions, travels, coronation, sinking of wells, ponds and tanks, construction of houses, entry into house, village, city etc. At the time of a query if Jala Tatwa arises the above mentioned things will prove auspicious. When Agni Tatwa is operating, harm, death It is stated that if Vayu Tatwa runs all deeds of movements have to be made.

Mounting on a horse for the first time, driving vehicles or motors, riding on horses, elephants, cows, camel etc,, practice of mantra like Mohana, Uc- chatana, Vidveshana, Akarsana etc.

Swara Yoga - Ancient science of Breathing

For going on war, travels and marriages this is not suitable. If Akash Tatwa functions it is quite ordinary Either auspiciousness or in- auspiciousness, gein or loss do not occur. For Yogis this is very good for yoga practice. Archanas to deities, meeitation, concentration, installation mantra- tantras, knowledge of salvation etc. Parvati, thus about Tatwas have been Stated. If the breath moves feebly it is called Bala Swara child. Acts during this period yield poor results. The breath which comes slowly but steadily is called Kumara youth.

The resul i ts of this time are of medium nature. The breath with sound is auspicious and is called Vridda adult. The matters done or enquired about at this time yield favourable results. If the Swara is obstructed or defective it is called Mrita Swara death. On account of this there will be obstacle to the undertaking. The place for Prithvi is tongue, that for Jala is sexual organs, that for Agni is eyes, that for Vayu is nose and that for Akash is ears.

Oh Parvati! One has to understand the states of Swasa like whirling, crooked, splitting, jerking, burning, spoiling, sleeping and setting.

Oh, venerable Lady! If the air goes up touching, it is called 'Valitham' and this is harmful for everything. If the air leaving Vayu Tatwa touches the bottom of the wall and turns back in the middle it is called 'Vakritam'. This causes destruction of everything. Following Tejas Tatwa if it touches in two ways it is called 'Sphutitham'. This affords comforts to people. If the air mutilitates knowingly or unknowingly, inadvertently it is called 'Skalitam'.

Thjs is harmful. If the air mutilates knowingly or unknowingly and at the same time warm it is also called 'Sphutitam' At this time efforts will break into two. If the swara burns leaving Agni Tattwa it is called 'Jwalitam'.

On occount of this enormous troubles arise. If there is extreme heat and excessive burning it is called 'Agni'. On account of this there will be defeat in war and death may result. In doubtful cases or queries one has to think over the strength of Tatwas ap- pearing first as well as later and undertake. If the air joins strongly in both the nostrils and on both the sides it is full with many colours.

On account of this, as there is a mixture of fullness and pau- city, many Tatwas arise. There is nothing more than this. The Swasa that is pure without any of the above mentioned bad qualities is superior. Prithvi denotes one day; Jala one muhurtha 48 minutes ; Agni one ghati 24 minutes ; Vayu one month; and Akash one year. Thus one has to follow the time and tell about the time limit for the fruition of an event.

Ghatika gives full effect, day three-fourths, the month half and the year quar- ter results. If air comes out of the nostrils profusely without sound it is called 'Dwam- samanam'. Consequently all the undertakings will be destroyed. There is nothing more. In doubtful cases or queries one has to think over the strength of Tatwas ap- 21 pearing first as well as later and undertake. Prithvi denotes sitting; Jala denotes coming; Agni denotes sleeping; Vayu denotes travelling; and Akash meditating.

These have to be stated ac- cordingly. The query denotes a near-by person, if Jala Tattwa arises; the person posited there itself if Pithhvi; the person gone outside if Varu; the sickly per- son if Agni; and a dead person if Akash.

In query about gains, Jala denotes favour, Bhumi denotes enjoyment, Tejas denotes victory in war and Vayu denotes fleeing. In a query about war the Prithvi denotes fear and defeat to the Yayee ad- vancing army and victory to Sthayee local army.

Prithvi denotes war, Jala denotes peace, Agni denotes victory, Vayu de- notes defeat and Akash denotes death. In a query about war if Jala Bhuts arises victory is to the Yayee and defeat to the Sthayee.

Vayu denotes Sankrama caste mixed. Other Bhutas associating with this will determine the caste connected. Thus a yogi should concentrate with a steady mind and after thinking over he should predict the results. Thus ends chapter nine dealing with Tatwas. Nose, ears, eyes, face, sexual organs, anus and testicles are the seven places for consideration. A person having the knowledge of Moola Swara should examine the testicles.

If they are up they are at set and if they hang down they are at rise. If both the testicles are equal they are at Sankramana. These have to be exam- ined early in the morning. If the opening of the urinary passage is reddish it is Sun and if whitish it is Moon. One has to state harm by the Sun and attainments by the Moon.

If the urine passes at a single stretch it indicates fulfilment of objects; if they are at several stretches there will be harm; if there is no sound or if the, urine is profuse harmful results have to be stated.

If the sound is normal desired objects will be fulfilled. If the sound is "Puz" fulfilment; if it is "Dam" destruction; if 'Khi' death; and if 'Dai' enjoyment.

Thus the indications from the sound of expelled gas have to be s? If urine, comes first it is rising of the Moon; and if excreta comes first it is rising of the Sun. If urine, excreta and gas come out simultaneously that day is called 'Vishu '. If the excreta and urine fall on the left side it is auspicious and if it is on the right side it is inauspicious. Falling on the left indicates success and gains while that on the right death. If the urine is white and luke-warm it is ordinary.

The wise should practice examination of Moola Swara. By examination of day, week, and Moola swara in the mornings one is able to foresee the favourable and unfavourable results that they are likely to crop then. First of all one has the understand time and then the strength of body. I shall tell examination of body and time.

Excreta represents Prithvi, urine represents Jala and expelled gas represents Yayu and these three are the important Tatwas. If they are split gains will also be split and if they are full the results will also be full. If urine comes first and then excreta, attainments in travel and.

If urine comes first, next gas and then excrete, there will be medium ef- fects in travels, debates and wars If urine comes first, next gas, then excreta and last water, there will be gov- ernmental gains, travels and profits.
