Indian 'holy man' perplexes doctors

http://www.youtube.com/wa...

Doctors and experts are baffled by an Indian man who claims not to have eaten or drunk anything for 70 years - but is still in perfect health.

A team of scientists and doctors in Sterling Hospital, in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad, are studying the claims of Prahlad Jani, a local holy man, who is over 70 years old.

He claims to have been blessed by a goddess when he was 8-years-old, which has enabled him to survive without sustenance and that he derives energy through meditation.

Most people can live without food for several weeks, with the body drawing on its fat and protein stores. But the average human can survive for only three to four days without water.

Every child should be taught meditation and fasting.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov-
Meditating at dawn, in the living presence of the rising sun, is the method the Master urged all disciples to practice; it lies at the heart of his teaching.
In springtime, the early morning rays send you all the energies and stimulus you need for the rest of the year. Don’t let them pass you by without benefiting from them. Open yourself to these rays and allow the forces of light, joy and resurrection to pass through you.’

Meditation at Sunrise
As the sun rises over the world, so may the sun of truth, freedom, immortality and Eternity, rise in my spirit.
As the sun rises above the world, so may the sun of love and immensity rise in my soul.
As the sun rises above the world, so may the sun of intelligence, light and wisdom rise in my intellect.
As the sun rises above the world, so may the sun of gentleness, kindness, joy, happiness and purity rise in my heart.
As this luminous, radiant sun rises over the world, so may the sun of strength, power, force, dynamic energy and activity rise in my will.
And as this luminous, radiant, living sun rises over the world, so may the sun of health, vitality and vigour rise in my body.
Amen. So be it, for the kingdom of God and His righteousness
Amen. So be it, for the Glory of God!

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

beautiful

I heard this exact same story...

almost a decade ago.

Is this an old story (same people), or is this rehashing the same one with different people? All of the key elements are exactly the same.

Google "Breatharians"

This Indian holy man is not alone. There are many people who claim to live without food - not sure about water. If you Google Breatharians you may find more stories like this one.

Thank you Zen

Thank you for this info.

How does a hermit do service to others? By leaving them alone.

More of us should go and do likewise.

Bob, It is just by sending

Love. It must be from the heart and looking for nothing in return. And yes, leaving them alone. You are very wise. Always follow the heart and send the children forward with that. Rule NO ONE! Help your neighbor. Governments hate that. That is my way of screwing this government and all the politicians. If I help my neighbors become self sufficient then the government falls. Can't wait for them to find out we don't need them.

That is when they are screwed.

Here's another Sun Gazer (Sun Grazer?)

He lives off of water and sunlight.

Do not put this on me do your own research and believe what you want, smile.

I think this is possible, but I don't know if he is doing it -- I think the body has what would seem miraculous abilities, but one must be ethical first, I hope he is.

Hey, hey...

...somebody better get that yogi a pic-a-nic basket!

just so you know..

I crack up every stinking time I read that..LOL

Holy Man

...I would strongly suggest to him to get out of that medical facility as fast as he can ... if wants to continue his journey here on earth ;)

another thing

said researcher Dr. G. Ilavazhagn according to the Daily Mail. “What is truly astonishing, and something we have no explanation for, is that he has not passed stools or urine. To my knowledge, that is medically unprecedented.”

Apparently he "gargled" with water during the study.

Hmmmm.

Two weeks without food is very tough, but its certainly doable.

Jesus' example from John 4:31-34

John 4:31-34 (King James Version)

31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Glory to God.

Sound like "4th density consciousness"

According to some writings ("Bringers of the Dawn" and the Cassiopaean website), 4th density STO (service to others) can draw energy directly "from the ether," requiring neither food nor drink (Think "Q" on "Star Trek: The Next Generation"). This "holy man" may just as well have achieved "4th density consciousness."

How does

a hermit do service to others?

many ways

you do know of the broken window fallacy correct?

the study is concluded

15 days without food or water

I tried

the sun-gazing last year until it got too cold outside. I'm not sure what it did for me but it didn't damage my eyesight from what I can tell. Maybe if I didn't smoke I would have noticed an effect.... It was relaxing though.

know-it-alls

It's fun to witness know-it-alls become perplexed - most just deny what doesn't fit into their conditioned sense of reality.

Excellent post!

.

With this man self admitted into the hospital and them keeping him there for 15 days he should be getting out soon or there should at least be an update as this video was posted on April 29th.
It will be interesting to see.

Imagination is more important than knowledge -Albert Einstein

i met a guy

who claimed to be a "Breatharian." he says he never ate anything, but did drink water. he says he absorbed everything he needed through the sun and the air. i only spent the weekend around him, but during that time i can attest to the fact that he didn't eat anything.

later, i even asked him if he ever had a bowel movement in his life, and he said he does. says his stools are the size of a quarter in diameter.

where the solid is supposedly coming from, i have no idea(?)

i vaguely remember him saying something to the effect that the only reason we need to eat so much is because the junk we eat is rotting in our stomach and we need to keep adding to the system so that it flushes out the old rotting junk with new junk to rot.

Where is the solid coming from?

Chem trails for sure. :)

unpleasant fact

Most of the solid mass of feces is the remains of the bacteria that reside in our GI tract.

Just to take this fact and run with it as if the claim to be food-free is true...maybe there is a bacterial species that can, in fact, sustain itself inside the human GI tract using as its source of energy a byproduct of the skin's interaction with sunlight. If this bacteria then releases, in turn, nutrients consisting of carbohydrates and amino acids, there could be a symbiotic system for sustaining the human life. Maybe?!

In many other symbiotic relationships between bacteria and other life forms (fungi, anthozoans) it is the bacteria that do the photosynthesis for both species while the second species provides structural support and protection.

We already know that sunlight converts cholesterol in the skin into the precursor molecules to Vitamin D. Maybe there is some system like that exploited by a gastrointestinal bacteria?
