The study was carried out to evaluate the nutritional, functional and quality parameters of different varieties of cucumbers and their shelf stability. Pranic treated cucumbers had significantly lower physiological loss of weight, better physical characteristics (firmness, decay, colour) with passage of time at room and refrigerated temperatures, than control samples.

The study was conducted to understand the morphological qualities (plant length, stem diameter and fruit yield) of pranic treated in comparison to control cucumbers. The pranic cucumber plants recorded an increase 97% in length, 31.7% in stem diameter, and yielded 20.8% significantly more than control group plants.

The agronomic impact of pranic agriculture on tomato was studied. Pranic plants were 18.5% taller, 12% more in stem diameter, had 31.7% more flowers, yielded 31% significantly more than control group. Pranic treatment aided in controlling the fruit weight loss, shrinkage, titrable acidity and total soluble solids content of tomatoes during storage at room and refrigerated temperatures.
The study sensitized people on existence of pranamaya kosha. 99.5% of the participants felt the pranic energy, 61.1% felt prana sensation as a nice feeling, 26.7% expressed as a relaxed feeling. On absorbing air prana, 98.4% experienced psychological changes, more than 60% felt relaxed and happy.
