... sensations that I had not had before in any of my meditations in the past. I felt my tongue go numb and my mouth and throat get tight. I realized I had a blockage of my throat chakra.

... popular here with men often spitting out the brown paste from their mouth as they walk down the street. We were both half asleep but it didn't take us long to realise we were witnessing something unique that the world had to offer. The Indian people come down to bathe at sunrise.
