The great Nikola Tesla once asked a both mystifying and fascinating question: “Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?” In apparent answer to this inquiry, Mayans, Egyptians, Aztecs, Tibetans, and Indians argue that impacts of “sun gazing” on human beings are self-sustaining, telepathic, and existential or otherworldly in general.
What exactly is “sun gazing?”
This is a practice which entails enabling sunlight into your eyes when it is at its lowest ultraviolet-index: one hour before sunset, one hour after sunrise. What’s more, human beings must keep their bare feet in direct contact with natural ground throughout the process, and individuals should only sun gaze for ten seconds at a time when they are getting started. Over time, the duration of sun gazing can be increased by ten seconds, and then increased another ten seconds after another adequate amount of time has passed.
Nikolai Dolgoruky from Ukraine has often been described as a “sun eater,” because he has been sun gazing for at least twelve years and claims to have mastered the practice and skill. Remarkably, Dolgoruky argues that he lost the need to eat food in order to survive after only nine months of sun gazing. Apparently, Dolgoruky sun gazed for about 44 minutes per day. Perhaps more remarkably, this technique has been referred to as the HRM phenomenon (after Hira Ratan Manek), and it has evidently been verified by way of scientific testing: “Since June 18th, 1995, HRM has and continued to live only on sun energy and water. Occasionally, for hospitality and social purposes, he drinks tea, coffee and buttermilk. Until now, he had three strict fasting, during which he had just sun energy and only water and was under the control and observation of various science and medical teams.”
The initial fasting lasted 211 days from 1995 to 1996 (in Calicut, India), and it was observed by Dr. C.K. Ramachandran: an allopathy and ayurvedic medicine expert. The second fast occurred for 411 days from 2000 to 2001 (in Ahmedabad, India), and it was directed by a team of 21 doctors and scientists headed by Dr. Sudhir Shah (Dr. Shah’s synopsis report) and Dr. K. K. Shah; Shah was the acting President of Indian Medical Association. Dr. Maurie D. Pressman, MD joined the team for observation on HRM.
Afterward, HRM agreed to a 130 day observation at Thomas Jefferson University and University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia; the Science and Medical Team desired to examine his retina, pineal gland, and brain, and this team was headed by Dr. Andrew B. Newberg (leading authority on brains and featured in the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know”). Additionally, Dr. George C. Brenard (leading authority on pineal glands) supervised. Surprisingly, it was found that gray cells in HRM’s brain were regenerating; 700 photographs taken showed active neurons as opposed to dying or dead neurons. More specifically, the pineal gland expanded rather than shrinking (although this is typical after age 55, up to a size of 6 mm by 6 mm). Notably, HRM’s pineal gland was measured to be 8 mm by 11 mm.
Sun gazing’s impacts on the human body.
During the first three months, energy from the sun moves through the eyes and charges the hypothalamus tract, which is the pathway to the back of the retina leading to the human brain. Sun gazing activates this region, resulting in feelings of calmness and relief—feelings normally experienced after consuming a satisfying and nourishing meal. You can continue eating if you so desire, but your confidence and your problem solving skills will be enhanced regardless. Indeed, apparently anger, fear, jealousy, and lust will disappear, and then be replaced by spiritual knowing. After six months, sun gazing should improve a human being’s health as all the colours of the sun penetrate their brain. In fact, colour therapists associate this healing with the replenishment of specific colours, such as the colour green for liver diseases, and the colour yellow for heart diseases.
Sun gazing enthusiasts argue that energy sustains us, and that energy can be obtained in ways entirely different from eating conventional foods. Apparently, after eight months of sun gazing the craving for food can almost be gone; additionally, walking barefoot on bare ground for 45 minutes per day for 6 days can enhance the benefits. As the pineal gland generates a magnetic field in and around your body, you mind, body, and soul should be recharged; it is said that the pineal gland controls navigation and psychic ability—allegedly, even telepathy and flight.
Directly gazing at the sun can result in permanent retina damage, so do keep getting your eyes checked out over the first weeks. What’s more, be sure to strictly adhere to the beginner’s guidelines discussed above, and don’t attempt to permanently stop eating or drinking without consulting and verifying with your doctor.
