Establishment of the 4 mutts by Bhagwan Shankaracharya

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2ko_RDhLFc Bhagwan Shankaracharya knew that after his demise, India will have to face a physical war, ideological war, cultural war. He knew this very well. That is why in order to protect the 4 Vedas he set up 4 Amnaya Mutts in the 4 corners of this country. Amnaya means the Vedas and Amnaya Peetha means Vedic Seat. So, he established 4 Mutts in the 4 directions of India in order to protect the 4 Vedas and the 4 divine abodes of India. He established the Sri Uttaramnaaya Jyotirmath in the north. The Veda protected by Jyotirmutt is the Atharva Veda, i.e the literature relating to Atharva Veda, the Brahman Grathas, the Aranyak Granthas, the Upanishads, in order to protect these, this mutt was established.

Source: - Swami Purnachaitanya / Quora. First of all I would like to mention that the Sudarshan Kriya is mainly effective for those who have done the Art of Living course, as there is no other place to learn this technique properly, and it only affects other people indirectly - as in, when you become a more healthy, happy, caring and responsible person it will indirectly affect the people around you, but you breathing in a different manner will not directly affect the people around you (unless you make a lot of noise or have a smelly breath ;-)).
