Can The Sun Give Us The Super Human Power of Not Needing To Eat?

by Puja Shah January 06, 2014


I want you to try something. Go outside one hour before sunrise or sunset and take your shoes off. Press your feet firmly into the earth, (either dirt, mud or sand), and directly look at the sun for 10 seconds, (increase more time daily as your eyes adjust). Imagine that this is all your body needed for nourishment, that your appetite shifted from food in your mouth to your eyes drinking the sun’s rays.

Sound crazy?

Well a NASA study has confirmed that it can indeed happen through sun gazing, or sun eating as some practitioners have called it.

Just ask Hira Ratan Manek, who NASA funded the study where a team of medical doctors at the University of Pennsylvania observed and recorded him 24 hours a day for 100 days. They confirmed that he was indeed able to survive largely on light with occasionally a small amount of buttermilk or water during this time.

He possessed the SUPERHUMAN ability of not needing to eat.


So, how does your body actually drink in the sun?

It’s been said that during your first 3 months of sun gazing, the suns energy starts to move through the eyes and charges the hypothalamus tract. The hypothalamus tract, rear of the retina, actually leads to the brain. Over time, the brain becomes activated by the sun’s energy supply. Some say that at first, it feels like a release of mental tension/worry.

Since food gets it’s energy from the sun, it is said to be readily available to sun-eaters without the trouble and energy directed towards digestion.

At some point, like it did for Hira, hunger ceases and just disappears on it’s own.

You might ask, what good does this do?

With the release of tension or worry, it’s much easier to have clarity. Within the first couple months of a sun gazing daily practice, it’s reported that fears, feelings of jealousy or anger are all replaced with a positive attitude and the person feels confident with a spiritual base and pure heart.

I mean, who hasn’t heard of someone feeling good after being in the sun?

Feeling good is not only figurative though. After 3-6 months, studies even show that actual physical diseases go away with 30 minutes of sun gazing a day. This is associated with the hues of the sun reaching the brain. Color therapists indicate healing occurring with colors that flood the body and brain with whatever color is lacking in that area of the body. For example, the kidneys need red, and if deficient, red sun rays make their way from the sun through the retina to that deficiency.

One could even argue that this is validated by ancient scriptures such as the Vedas which describe colors with the chakras, (energy centers), to organs as well.

“There are seven primary chakras located in the subtle physical body, the body of light and energy that is our awareness and that surrounds the physical.” –Zen Master Rama

So not only does these sun eaters inherit super human qualities, they essentially have found a way to increase their longevity.

After 6 months, studies show evidence that the energy that has been stored no longer needs to repair the body or mind…but it can move into supporting the gain of super human abilities that have been reported as “inconclusive.”

What powers do they possess??!

There’s only one way to find out….
