This sungazing information is for
educational purposes only. We do not recommend sungazing to anyone.
If you are considering sun gazing, please research this as much as
Sun gazing. Sounds crazy doesn’t it?
Doctor’s warn you about how
dangerous the sun is, and how harmful it can be to your health. They
recommend we wear sun screens, and shades, and limit our exposure.
People complain about skin cancer, sun damage, and sun blindness,
and yet all of these things have little to do really, with the sun.
Studies have shown that exposure to sunshine aids the healing of
melanoma, and non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. Research indicates it could be
an aid in other cancers also. It seems that vitamin D directly from
the sun, is an excellent healing agent.
It is recommended by some who advocate the use of sunshine, to limit
sun exposure to some degree, so that you do not incur skin cancer.
suggest this also, for those who eat a normal American diet, or if
you include grains in your diet. Your skin is your largest
eliminatory organ, whereby unprocessed toxins are released through
the skin’s pores. Interactions between the toxins and the sun’s
rays, bring about what we know of, as skin cancer.
Skin damage, such as leathering of the skin, is caused by lack of
EFA’s in the diet. Sun blindness or damage to the eyes, is caused by
the use of corrective lenses. Glasses, and contact lenses both,
cause an unnatural glare on the eyes, when exposed to the sun.
can cause serious damage to the eyes over time.
Safe Use of the Sun
Common sun screens contain aluminum, a cancer causing substance. I
recommend using plain sesame oil, it is an excellent sunscreen.
Research shows it blocks the effects of the sun’s ray’s by about
If you are going to be sunbathing, remove any corrective lenses you
are wearing, or keep your eyes closed.
If you eat an average diet, or eat grains, limit sun exposure, and
wear protective clothing.
Staring at the Sun:
My journey with the ancient practice of sun gazing, began in
Arizona, a little over three years ago. I had discovered an
incredible diet that was to save my life, by the same man named
Hira Ratan Manek. He was originally from India, and is commonly
referred to as HRM.
HRM has literally subsisted, and lived off of the sun’s energy since
June 18th, 1995.
That is right, he has not eaten solid food in 12
years. He has been studied by various researchers, such as the
Thomas Jefferson University, and the University of Pennsylvania. Not
only have they found his claims to be true, but medical evidence
suggests this man is more healthy than a normal person of his age.
This year he is 76.
How does he do it?
The ancient practice of sun gazing. Doctor’s found his neurons were
active, and not dying. His pineal gland is actually growing, not
shrinking, which is very unusual in someone over the age of fifty.
The greatest average in someone over fifty, is a pineal size of 6×6
mm, HRM’s is 8×11 mm.
I have spoken with HRM, and he has taught myself and others, his
sungazing techniques. He now runs a website that can be found here.
HRM is a little stricter in his training than I myself practice, but
his guidelines are probably a must for the average beginner. Here is
My Sungazing Story
In August of 2004, I went in to get a new contact lens prescription.
I have a genetic retinal degenerative disease, and am blind in one
eye. My vision in my good eye, sent me home with a prescription of
-19. That is a pretty extreme case of near sightedness. After
vigilant sungazing one year, I returned to the same doctor in may
This man was very mainstream, and when I told him I had been sun
gazing, he went through the roof. He checked for eye damage… there
was none. He checked my prescription. According to his device, my
vision had changed to a prescription of -17.5.
When I looked at the
eye chart, it was even a vastly greater difference. He refused to
give me anything lower than -17.5, saying the whole situation was
impossible. This has not been the only situation in which a doctor
has said the same thing to me.
It took me months for my eyes to
adjust, to a prescription that was too powerful.
The Benefits of Sun Gazing
Sun gazers report a variety of benefits. The most basic are improved
health, increased energy levels, clearer thinking, an increase in
awareness, and results from what is called wish fulfillment.
Wish fulfillment is practiced during the time that you are gazing at
the sun. One focuses on inner desire and needs, and having these
things come into one’s life. It is an amazing practice, and partly
why I am so addicted to it. I have had countless things manifest for
me after doing various wish fulfillments. It is kind of sad that I
only get three months of sunshine living in Washington state!
Am I Recommending Sun Gazing?
Everyone must make their own choices, and come to their own
Do not take my word for it, but take the time to really
look into it, if you are interested. You can find additional
information from the scientist I previously mentioned, Vinny Pinto.
Just type in sungazing into Google, and you will find ample
information on the subject.
Enjoy the sun!
This article is meant to suggest possibilities, not diagnose or
treat. Use wisdom in your actions, and consult a natural doctor when
HRM experimented on his own body for three years and devised this
method based on trial and error.
This can be accomplished by anyone
in any part of the world at any time of the year. HRM is not a
unique figure and anyone can do this. Now thousands are using this
method of sungazing are achieving results.
In Brazil, Australia,
Germany, more than 3000 people are subsisting on light. This is a
rebirth of a science that was practiced long time ago. Originally
this was a spiritual practice in the ancient times and now it is
becoming a scientific practice, which can be followed by anyone as
Day by day this practice of sungazing is becoming
popular and has become known as the HRM Phenomena.
Safe Sungazing Practice
Sungazing is a one-time practice of your lifetime usually for a
period of 9 months.
You can break up the practice in three phases. 0
to 3 months, 3-6 months and 6- 9 months. You have to walk barefoot
for 45 minutes for the rest of your life. Food makes us commit the
maximum pain to others and exploit others. The practice entails
looking at the rising or setting sun one time per day only during
the safe hours. No harm will come to your eyes during the morning
and evening safe hours.
The safe hours are anytime within 1-hour
window after sunrise or anytime within the 1-hr window before
sunset. It is scientifically proven beyond a reasonable doubt that
during these times, one is free from UV and IR rays exposure, which
is harmful to your eyes.
To determine the timings of sunrise or
sunset, you can check the local newspaper, which also lists the UV
Index as 0 during these times. Both times are good for practice - it
depends on individual's convenience. Sun gazing also has the added
advantage of getting vitamin A and D during the 1-hour safe period
Vitamin A is necessary for the health of the eye, the only
vitamin that the eye requires. If you sungaze, the spectacles and
the associated power in the eye will go away and this will provide
better eyesight without glasses.
For those who cannot initially sungaze during the safe periods,
sunbathing is an effective method for receiving the sun energy at a
slower pace until one is able to sungaze. Best times to take sunbath
is when the UV index is lower 2 or below.
This usually occurs within
the 2-hour window after sunrise or before sunset. Sun bathing during
the day is to be avoided, except for during the winter months, when
the UV index usually remains at 2 all throughout which is safe for
sunbathing. Check your local newspaper to see the published results
for UV Index to be sure.
Also do not use sunscreen. When body gets
heated up you perspire and sweat is a waste product and needs to go
out of the body.
When you are painted or coated with lotions and
creams - they get degenerated and the chemicals enter your body. It
is our malpractice - our wrong use - why we blame the sun for skin
Sungazing: 0 - 3 months
First day, during the safe hours, sungaze for a maximum of 10
Second day sungaze for 20 seconds at the rising sun adding
ten seconds every succeeding day. So at the end of 10 continuous
days of sungazing you will be looking at the sun for 100 seconds
i.e. 1 minute and 40 seconds. Stand on bare earth with bare foot.
Eyes can blink and/or flicker. Stillness or steadiness of the eyes
is not required.
Do not wear any lenses or glasses while sungazing.
Why don't you watch the sun instead of the TV? The intensity of the
TV is much more than the rising or setting of the sun. If you can
watch TV at close ranges for extended periods of time, you can
easily watch the rising or setting sun safely. Have a belief that
the sunrays or lights that you are getting into your eyes are of
immense benefit and will not harm you. This will give you earlier,
quicker and better results.
Even without a belief component also you
will get the results provided that you follow the practice, however,
it will take longer time. On the other hand, you need not restrict
any of your normal daily routines to sungaze. There are no
You can enjoy your food while applying this practice.
Hunger will disappear eventually by itself.
You may consider sungazing from the same place at the same time
daily. Following circadian patterns has its advantages. If you pray,
you can have any prayer of your choice. No particular one is
suggested and it is not a requirement. As a precaution, have your
eyes examined by a doctor. This is to err on the side of caution
from a scientific standpoint.
Also, you should have periodic check
ups. Additionally, you can buy photo sun-cards to monitor UV and IR
radiation, which are priced at about $2. (when cards are kept in the
sunlight). There is no need to buy an expensive $500 photosensometer.
If your cheeks get heated up then stop gazing. Use common sense.
When you reach three months you will have gazed at the sun 15
minutes at a stretch.
If you can watch TV for 3 hours, surely you
can see the sun for that long. What is happening as you go up to 15
minutes? The sun energy or the sunrays passing through the human eye
are charging the hypothalamus tract, which is the pathway behind the
retina leading to the human brain. As the brain receives the power
supply through this pathway, it is activated into a brainutor.
of the software programs inherent in the brain will start running
and we will begin to realize the changes since we will have no
mental tension or worries.
Besides, we will have the self-confidence
to face life problems by means of developing a positive mind set
instead of a negative one. Moreover, we will become fearless since
our psychosis will have disappeared so will have all the ills of the
mind. This is the first phase of the method and lasts around 3
Humans have good and bad qualities, which are 2 sides of the same
coin. In the absence of the sunlight we develop bad qualities. When
sunlight enters the brain, good qualities come into appearance
replacing bad ones.
Eventually, even spiritual ignorance goes away.
Sometimes, you get confused from what you hear and read. You get
contradictory information such as red wine is good for you and
alcohol is bad for you. You are baffled with life's problems and
detest decision-making. But after 3 months of sun gazing, you
develop a sense of confidence and know the answers for yourself
There is a balance of the mind, where you are in a
position to judge personal answers - the correct answers. You
develop powers that are already inherent in you. Bad qualities
disappear, anger, greed, jealousy leave you. You become a lovable
creature. Everybody likes you. You will do no wrong.
If you are
positive or fearless, you will not harm anybody nor pain anybody.
You will become a compassionate person. This is a great contribution
to world peace. A positive approach creates solutions to problems
and waste in society. There will be no need for environmental
engineers. We won't throw waste, as there is no away.
By 3.5 months
Besides, mental depression will go away. Psychiatrists are observing
that sadness is caused by lack of sunlight. With the practice of
sungazing you will not have depression in your whole lifetime.
will achieve a perfect balance of mind. Fear of death will go away.
The state of mind is such that you will welcome death. What is to
happen, you will be able to let it happen. There will be no worries.
Everyone has some sort of mental disorder, which is the biggest
human problem, which can be removed by the proper use of sunlight.
Sungazing: 3 - 6 months
Next, Physical diseases will start being cured.
70 to 80% of the
energy synthesized from food is taken by the brain and is used up in
fueling tensions and worries. With a lack of mental tension, brain
does not require the same amount of energy as before.
As you proceed
in sun gazing and as your tensions decrease the need for food intake
will go down.
When you reach 30 minutes duration of continuously sungazing, you
will slowly be liberated from physical disease since by then all the
colors of the sun will have reached the brain through the eye. Brain
regulates the flow of color

organs. All the internal organs get ample supply of the required

Colors reach the
organs and address any deficiencies.
This is how color therapies
There is a lot of information
available on color therapy. This is the process of getting liberated
from physical ailments over a six-month period. After 3-4 months you
can become cured of your physical ailments with autosuggestion,
which is imagining and visualizing healing your ailments while he sungazing.
Scientific methods such as the Solariums, crystals, color
bottles, natural stones, gems, all utilize sun energy, which is
stored in these natural stones. You can keep natural color stones in
drinking water to further hasten healing.
In solariums there is usually a platform at the height of 100 feet
where each of the 7 glass cabinets is constructed for each of
the VIBGYOR colors. This platform revolves around the sun whole day and
according to the nature of the disease diagnosed, the patient is
placed in the appropriate color for healing.
drinking water bottles with different colors are kept in sun for 8
hours. The water gets solarized and water develops medicinal value
and is used to treat different diseases.
Photosynthesis, which we misunderstand, does not in fact need
chlorophyll. Only the plant kingdom needs chlorophyll. Human body
can do it with a different medium.
Photosynthesis is transforming
the sun energy into a usable energy format. This is how Photovoltaic
cells work and electricity is produced, similarly water is heated,
food is cooked in solar cooker, and solar batteries run automobiles.
Eyes receive the entire spectrum of the sunlight while sungazing,
which is distributed to the different parts of the body by the brain
on a need per basis. As a result, you are cured from all diseases. A
3rd intermediate medium is avoided. As you continue sungazing,
energy is no longer being used up for mental impairments or physical
ailments; thus its storage level increases in your body.
your own master within 6 months.
Sungazing: 6 - 9months
After 6-months of sungazing you will start to have the original form
of micro food, which is our sun. Additionally, this can avoid the
toxic waste that you take into your body while you eat regular food.
7.5 months and 35 min of sungazing is when hunger starts going down
palpably. Need for food intake decreases. No one needs to eat more
than his or her hunger levels.
Hunger comes because of energy
requirements of the body, which is a must for its existence. Food is
not a necessity for the body to function, only energy is.
Conventionally, you are indirectly getting the sun energy while
eating food, which is a by-product of sun energy. If there is no
sunlight, no food will grow.
Therefore, as you consume the original form of food by sungazing,
hunger goes down starting to disappear eventually.
By eight months,
you should see hunger almost gone. For a dull or weak student or
with no belief, this time period may be 9 months or 44 minutes.
After that time, hunger disappears forever. All mechanisms
associated with hunger like aroma, cravings, and hunger pangs also
Moreover, energy levels are at a higher level. There is a
judgment (having had this experience) that the brain is well
activated with the sun energy.
Well done, you have become a solar
Sungazing after 9 Months
After nine months or when you reach to a 44 minutes level, you
should give up sungazing since solar science prohibits further
gazing for the sake of eye care.
The body will get discharged when
you stop practicing, which has to be recharged. Now you have to
start walking on bare foot on bare earth for 45 minutes daily for a
total of 6 days. Relaxed walking only. No need to walk briskly, jog
Any convenient time of the day is all right, however it is
preferred to do that when the earth is warmer and the sunlight is
falling on your body. When you walk bare foot, an important gland in
the brain's center called the pineal gland or the third eye is
activated. The big toe of the foot represents this gland. 25 years
ago it was considered a useless gland.
Now it has become an
important gland for study and up to now, about 18,000 papers have
been published about it. It has always been known as the Seat of the
soul. The Pineal gland has optic nerve endings.
The remaining four
toes represent glands too,
Amygdala for the last 2 years has been gaining importance
in medical research. It's a nucleus of the sun or cosmic energy and
plays an important role in the photosynthesis via the sunlight
reaching the brain through the eye.
When you walk bare foot, your
body weight stimulates all these 5 glands through your toes. This is
strengthened by the earth heat/energy and the sun prana falling on
the head or the crown chakra.
The chakras are not in the spinal cord
that is an imaginary location; they are definitely in the brain. All
these create a magnetic field and the body/brain recharges with the
energy of the sun entering in you. Relax. Walk 45 minutes for one
year and food continues to be away from you. After one year of
recharging, if you are satisfied with your progress you can give up
Few minutes of sun energy falling on you once in
3-4 days will be enough from then on.
But if you want the immune system to strengthen, then keep on the
bare foot walking. Also if you want memory power or intelligence to
increase, continue the walking practice. As you increase the sun's
heat on your feet the brain will activate more and more, which will
result in the more activity of Pineal gland.
the Pineal gland has certain psychic and navigational functions.
one can fly like the birds. You can develop
psychic skills of
telepathy and have your body at different places simultaneously.
Science has validated human psychic functions and medical
experiments are being done to ascertain this.
Different body parts
and its organs get purified once you stop eating due to
detoxification. The different internal organs play different
mechanical parts for the purposes of space travel and flight. There
is another utility value (other than food digestion) for the
internal organs. All the glands have a lot of functions and can
perform at optimal level via sun energy.
If you are fortunate to
activate the brain optimally you surely will reach enlightenment.
You can read past, present, and future. This method can be safely
applied to control obesity. Almost all problems get solved.
Historically, a lot of people have remained without food.
Accordingly in 1922, the Imperial Medical College in London decreed
that solar rays were the ideal food for humans. However, no one has
mentioned what their technique was.
For e.g. Yogananda in his book
'Autobiography of a Yogi' interviewed many saints and mystics to find
out the secret of their lack of eating food. The common reply was
that the sun energy entered through a secret door and reached the
medulla oblongata in the brain. They did not divulge their secret.
This knowledge was lost to common folk at the time.
The following video gives an opposing perspective of sun gazing:
Eat the Sun
Ancient Hindu scriptures tell us the quickest way to charge the
bodies cells is sungazing.
To do this... stand barefoot on bare
ground and roll the eyes around the sun. This bathes all the rods
and cones in the eye and charges the bodies cells.
You should sungaze only when the sun is fairly low in the sky...
never attempt to sungaze when the sun is at or near it's zenith at
noon or during an eclipse of the sun. You can sungaze... by looking
directly at the sun at sunrise and sunset, without any discomfort.
Begin by practicing these sungazing techniques slowly or for a short
time at the beginning to see how your eyes are affected. Follow your
inspiration. See detailed examples of sungazing methods below.
Various names for sungazing: sun gazing, solar healing, solar
gazing, sun staring, Sun Yoga, Surya Yoga and Solar Yoga.
Methods of charging the bodies cells:
sungazing, walking barefoot on
the earth with most of the body exposed to the sun
swimming in living sun-charged water of streams, rivers and lakes
drinking sun-charged water
eating living food as fresh as

earth like a small whirlwind and stand in it
go barefoot to look for these on
hilltops, mountain ridges and peaks - exhilarate the mind
with prayer, mantras, affirmations and singing to invoke
Illumination means to light up... and that's what we are trying to
You've seen paintings of Saints and Angels with a halo
around their head... that's an indication of illumination... or
spiritual enlightenment. The cells of the body become fully charged
and the body begins to glow... the mind is cleared of mental clutter
and the body becomes free of toxic waste and dis-ease.
All of these methods of ascending require that you live a balanced
spiritual life in which you are physically and mentally pure to
maintain the sanity of your personal mind.
As you ascend your
reality may change very rapidly and you need to be able to keep your
mental balance to continue upward.
"Shri Manek has researched ancient Jain and Hindu Scriptures and
experimented with sungazing on himself under strict medical Scrutiny
to Develop a simple and scientific technique of harnessing energy
from the Sun and the Earth. He lived without food, on water alone,
for a prolonged period of 411days..." [while under strict
observation by medical doctors. He has gone years without eating...
only drinking water... gaining all his sustenance from the sun.]
"He dedicated his life to teaching how our body can gain energy from
sources other than food. People who practiced this method have
observed negative emotions to drop, chronic illnesses to disappear
and all obsession with food become a thing of the past.''
" Shri Manek’s method: Is to be practiced standing BAREFOOT on BARE
EARTH. No wearing shoes, and no standing on concrete, stone or even
on grass in a meadow or lawn (The grass absorbs the solar energy).
One has to stand either on sand or on gravel/mud/ earth. Bare feet
have to be in contact with the bare earth."
"Practice sungazing in the open, in the first one hour after sunrise
or the last one hour just before sunset. During this time, the sun
rays are not too strong, and also the UV radiation etc. is supposed
to be lower, so no harm will come to the eyes."
"Start by simply gazing (or rather, looking) at the sun for 10
seconds only. Do not stare or focus on the sun. Simply just look at
it. No stress or strain on the face, facial muscles or eyes. Stand
relaxed. No need to maintain an unblinking, unwinking stare. Blink
as and when it naturally happens."
"During the practice, the attitude of “surrender” to the natural
divine cosmic sun energy must be there, as also an “auto-suggestion”
and implicit belief that this is going to help/heal/nourish you.
Increase the time you gaze at the sun by ten seconds each day."
"In about three months time, you will be doing it for about 15
minutes. At this time, all your mental tensions, problems etc. will
go away. This itself is a major thing. If this is your objective,
you can stop the practice at this time and go to the 'Post sungazing
"If you wish to go ahead, continue for another three months,
increasing again by ten seconds each day. When you are six months
into the practice, you will be somewhere around 30 minutes."
"At this time, all your physical ailments will also be gone. If this
is your objective, you can stop the practice at this time and go to
the “Post sungazing practice”. If you wish to go ahead, continue for
another three months, increasing again by ten seconds each day."
Sungazing Methods Most Commonly Used
by Vinny Pinto
My own experience with sungazing is that one should do it while
standing (most preferable) or sitting with feet firmly on the
ground, and first very briefly visualize (for only a few seconds) a
tube running up and down the entire length of the spine, very clear
and open (I believe this helps to open the 3 spinal energy channels
[central channel, ida and pingala] to the energy flow.)
Alternatively, or additionally, one can also briefly focus on, and
relax, the throat and jaw areas.
This seems to help the energies
flow and reduce untoward symptoms or after-effects. Most beginners
seem to start slowly, perhaps looking only at the sun with eyes
closed for a few weeks, and then progressing to looking at a spot
near the sun with eyes open for a few weeks, and then progressing
finally to direct sungazing for very short periods at first, at
times before 10:00 AM and after 3:30 PM.
Some die-hard sungazers in
temperate latitudes then seem to sometimes eventually progress to
sungazing in midday even in summertime.
When I sungaze, I draw the energy first to the heart center and then
to the solar plexus and navel centers, and then, on exhale, out to
the rest of the body.
We all seem to notice that we may have some
loss of vision in the center of the visual field (I see blurred
light image of the sun) for about 10 minutes following a session,
and some folks report really nasty headaches and sinus pains which
may last for days afterward, especially when first starting, and my
opinion (and that of others as well) is that this is especially
severe if there are lots of pre-existing toxins or damaged tissue in
For those who have been practicing for some time and who are serious
sungazing often may involve staring directly at the sun, often
between 10 AM and 3 PM, when it is brightest (even in summer!), with
eyes wide open, for many minutes at a time.
Again, as noted before,
most practitioners feel that one must also consciously circulate the
energy received by the eyes through certain energy centers of the
body as well.
As noted earlier, I have sungazed occasionally for years.
practice can lead to very heavy cleansing symptoms in the beginning
if one has lots of toxins on an energy level or the physical level.
Again, please note that I am not advising this sungazing technique
for anyone else.
Sungazing: to stare directly at the sun, eyes open, usually while
sitting with the feet on the ground, for anywhere from a minute to a
half-hour, with appreciation and gratitude in the heart for all the
sun gives us.
In the 15-plus years in which I have been practicing
this, I, along with others who do it, find that while early morning
works well, the best times, at least in cool temperate climates,
seem to be between 10 AM and 3 PM, when the sun is at its highest
position and "brightest".
A newcomer may get rather severe cleansing headaches at first (or is
it major damage? who knows?). Please do not do this just on my word;
please research it first!
For those of us who do sungaze: We usually sit, face the sun, open
our eyes, look at the sun, and then allow the the sun energy down to
our heart chakra, solar plexus chakra, and navel chakra, and then
allow it to flow to the rest of the body!
If you are seriously contemplating sungazing, especially just
outside the times just after sunrise or just before sunset, then you
are likely a bit crazy. If you are considering it, then I would urge
you to research the matter thoroughly and to consult deeply and
sincerely with your intuition and heart intelligence before doing
any sungazing, and do not push yourself if you do not feel ready!
do NOT recommend trying this!

What to Expect When You Sun Gaze
by Mason Dwinell
Sungazing is tool for tapping the potential of your human being.
Somechange may occur to reach these peaks; your perceptions may
alter circumstances, you will begin to change from the inside out,
and as we all know change can be uncomfortable.
Nonetheless, when we
release our physical and emotional energetic blockages these changes
will become trivial relative to the incredible expansiveness of the
We are all energetic beings, vibrating at different
frequencies, so we should be comfortable with the concept that all
of us are different. There may be many different reactions,
sensations and experiences; remember, whatever happens to you is
perfect. It is yours and yours only.
Be positive and open-minded;
feel all there is to feel.
Once you reach about 15-18 minutes (3-4 months) of sungazing many of
your mental tensions: irritability, anger, fear, grief, and general
personal frustrations will go away. This is just the beginning, but
what a beautiful beginning it is.
Life will become easier, more
comfortable and more enjoyable as you get closer and closer to
finding out who you really are. A blissful, euphoric sensation may
envelope you. Your energy levels may increase and the benefits of
having a routine in conjunction with the earth's rhythms will begin
to have a peaceful affect on your perception of the world.
At about 25-30 minutes (6-7 months) of sungazing, your hungers will
begin to diminish. How and why you make the choices you make may
come forth with remarkable clarity. Your self confidence may begin
to increase, as your comfort level with being you is heightened.
yes, your physical hunger for food will also begin to lessen.
Between 35 and 40 minutes (9-10 months) of sungazing physical
disharmonies, injuries, and diseases will be remedied. Also your
hunger for food will begin to substantially diminish. At this point
you may also feel awakenings in your charkas as well as possible
energy beginning to stir within your kundalini.
Each day more energy
blockages will be dissolved as you get closer and closer to your
higher self. At about 35 minutes your brain reaches its ability to
store an energetic charge.
You have reached the final step…40 to 44 minutes. Wow. Now you stop
To continue on can be very detrimental to your eyes. At
this time, sungazing is concluded and there is no need to continue
the practice any more. During the first three months, the pineal
gland is getting activated, and the hypothalamus or pathway to the
brain from the eye is getting charged.
After that period the solar
energy starts reaching your brain and charging it. After this
period, the solar energy starts getting stored in each and every
cell in your body. When all the cells in the body are purified there
is no need to sungaze any more.
Now your brain is fully charged, the
ability to control your destiny is in your hands.
SUNLIGHT WILL HELP HEAL YOUR EYES
"Gazing directly into the sun actually improves sight and aids in
overcoming disease," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.
"Without sunshine, there would be no
life possible on earth," writes Dr. Edwin Flatto.
The sun provides
the basis for all life on earth.
The sun is the source of energy for all plants, and indirectly, for
all animals. Sunlight purifies water, air and the surfaces of
"Shut up the strongest man in a dark dungeon, and he becomes pale
like a corpse, his blood loses its vitality, and he is liable to
scrofulous disease. He loses the power of resisting disease
influences," wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.
"Take away the sunlight and all life on earth would soon perish.
Deprived of sunlight, man loses physical vigor and strength and will
develop a disinclination for activity," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.
Shelton wrote that the "jailbird" who has been locked in his cell
for sometime with a lack of sunlight, is in line for disease and
will waste away.
Feed two animals the same diet but keep one in a dark closet and
allow the other to be out in the sunshine. The animal that's kept in
the closet will be weak, stunted and die prematurely.
FOR BEST RESULTS WHEN EXPOSED
TO SUNLIGHT, DO NOT USE EYEGLASSES,
SUNLAMPS, SUNSCREENS, SUNTAN LOTIONS OR TANNING PILLS
Eyeglasses and contact lenses rob you of energy by blocking some of
the ultra violet rays that travel through the eyes to the pineal
gland, writes Patricia McCormac.
After discontinuing wearing his eyeglasses, Dr. John Ott writes that
he exposed his eyes to the sunlight without lenses. His vision was
much improved. He recommended similar therapy to his friends and
they received similar improvement in their vision. Ott writes that
nothing should block out the full spectrum of sunlight, no glasses
of any kind to block the ultra violet rays, and especially, no dark
Sunglasses block healing ultra-violet light and thus contribute to
the increased incidence of blindness and eye disease in this
country, writes Dr. Jacob Liberman.
Suntan lotions should not be used because they can cause cancer,
writes Dr. Zane R. Kime.
"Artificial sun-lamps can do irreparable damage. None of the lamps,
regardless of the price, contain more than a few of the rays found
in the sun. The ultra-violet rays, because of their short length in
artificial lamps, can be very harmful," writes Dr. William Esser.
Sunscreen may actually increase the risk of cancer, so proposed
California researchers in a paper published in January, 1993, in the
Annals of Epidemiology.
The researchers contended that UVB- blocking
sunscreens had contributed to increasing skin-cancer rates, by
disabling the body's natural alarm mechanism: sunburn.
researchers also posited that because UVB rays are the main source
of vitamin D, and because vitamin D may inhibit the progression of
melanoma, and because sunscreens block UVB rays- sunscreens might
promote vitamin D deficiencies and cause melanomas.
(UVB is the
shorter wavelength of ultraviolet light that damages the skin. UVA
is the longer of the two types of ultraviolet light that reaches the
earth. UVA is responsible for tanning.)
In a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in
January,1993, researchers from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson
Cancer Center applied three common types of sunscreen to mice and
then exposed most of them to sunlamps twice a week for three weeks.
Melanoma cells were then injected into all the mice.
exposed to the ultraviolet (UV) rays, even if they were treated with
sunscreen, had a higher incidence of melanoma than those not exposed
to UV rays. The researchers theorized that sunscreens may allow
enough UV to penetrate the skin to suppress the immune response
and/or damage DNA, thusallowing tumors to develop.
UVA can cause skin cancer, particularly melanoma, according to the
Texas researchers. The sunscreens used in the mouse study blocked
little or no UVA.
Tanning pills are unsafe, writes Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports
write that Canthaxanthin, a dye, used in tanning pills, builds up in
the retina and liver, causes skin reactions and itching, and leads
to a type of hepatitis.
If we choose to expose our nude skins to the sunshine, all we need
dois pay attention to our bodies. Our bodies are always talking to
us and we must learn to listen. If the sunshine is going to be
harmful to us, our bodies will feel uncomfortable in the sunshine.
This will force us to withdraw our bodies from the sunshine before
the sunshine can injure us.
DON'T BLOCK THE SUN
OR YOU MAY DEVELOP
VITAMIN D ABSORPTION
Anything that blocks sunshine from penetrating the skin will reduce
the amount of vitamin D that the body makes.
People with lower levels of activated vitamin D are at greater risk
for colon cancer, writes the Lancet.
Vitamin D "in man, absorption is through the skin," by the influence
of sunlight, writes Dr. Viviana Virginia Vetrano.
HOW TO SUNBATHE CORRECTLY
"Sun-baths must, of course, be taken in the nude because clothing
prevents passage of the sun's rays to the body and the result is
only heat and sweat," writes Dr. William Esser.
"A full sunbath in the nude is ideal. This is not a mere cosmetic
measure, but a health requirement for greatest value," wrote Dr.
"Wild animal life spends the cool portions of the day in the sun and
seeks the shade and rest when it is hottest," wrote Dr. Shelton.
"Absorb the sun's rays during the early morning or just before
sunset, when the sun's rays are slanting, and when your shadow is
longer than you are," writes Dr. Edwin Flatto.
"Rooms which are poorly ventilated, into which the sunshine is not
permitted to shine and which are damp and not dried by your home
heating system are destructive of both life and health," writes Rise
Rafferty also writes, shutters and heavy curtains block
the life-giving rays of sunlight from the chamber. This should not

curtains, wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.

Unfortunately we are forced in our "un-civilization to constantly
keep covered with tight, restrictive garments and undergarments,
brassieres, panties, underpants,& bathing suits, our breasts,
prostates, reproductive organs and colons.
"No skin can be maintained in any thing like a clean condition if it
'does not come in contact with the sun and air," wrote Dr. -8-
Shelton also wrote,
"Complete organs may be removed from the body,
not only the arms and legs, but some of the internal organs, and
life will continue as before, but if the function of the skin is
suspended for only a few minutes, death is the result"...

The skin weakened by clothing is unable to do this very
"The skin that has become weakened by clothing serves
as a less effective barrier to infectious matter from the outside."
"Man also breathes through his skin and it is vitally necessary that
a constant supply of fresh pure air reach the skin if it is to carry
on its respiratory function normally. A healthy skin is essential to
normal health and can be had only by giving it the advantage of
those agencies which are intended by nature to come in contact with
and affect the skin."
"Anyone who ever had his feet to sweat knows how disagreeable is the
odor that exudes from them when his or her shoes are removed. Every
one is acquainted with the fact that the feet of the 'bare foot
boy with cheeks of tan' may sweat the whole day through without
producing such a condition.
Why the difference? It is because the
sun and air disintegrate and carry away the excretions from the skin
of the feet. If they are tightly sealed up in those leather sweat
boxes called shoes they are not only denied the benefits of light
and air but are forced to remain in their own filthy exudations.
Someday man will substitute the sun and air bath for the present
"The manual laborer goes to work on a hot summer day and sweats
profusely throughout the day. His clothes become saturated with
sweat. It gives off a very disagreeable odor. The hands and face
which have been exposed to the sun and air do not give off such an
If one examines he finds the space between the man's body and
his clothes occupied by foul hot air and gases which are very
repugnant to the olfactory sense. The man is literally wallowing in
his own excretions, he has them bound to him by his clothing so that
they escape slowly. This is filthy.
This same thing is true of every
one who wears clothes whether they are 'high collared' financiers or
just plain folks. It is not true of those who work without clothing.
This condition caused by the clothing weakens the skin. In many
cases it is almost dead."
"Man's resistance to atmospheric changes is also lowered to such an
extent that every time he meets a sudden change in temperature he
suffers. The Indian could travel all day in a blinding snowstorm or
swim frozen streams but if his 'pale face' brother attempted this he
died a few days later of pneumonia.
A skin debilitated by the hot
house conditions produced by clothing is not an adequate protection
for its owner. The sooner he begins to harden and revive it the
better it will be for his health."
"This attitude toward clothes will have to pass away if man is again
to enjoy the health and vigor that is his by right. In this we have
said nothing about the evils of corsets and high heeled shoes worn
by women and the worse styles in men's clothing, as we were dealing
with clothes as they exclude the light and air from the body.

"So prone are we to regard those conditions under which we are born
and reared as natural and to look upon those things which the
majority of mankind do as an average as the best for us to do as a

The fact is, clothing is both artificial and harmful."
"In truth man
was designed by the Creator to enjoy the direct rays of the sun and
the soothing and strengthening influence of the winds over the whole
surface of his body. He is by nature a nude animal."
Dr. C.W. Saleeby, wrote in, "Sunlight and Health",
" ... this most
beautiful, versatile and wonderful organ (skin) is, for the most
part, smothered, blanched and blinded in clothes, and can only
gradually be restored to the air and light which are its natural
surroundings. Then, and only then, we learn what it is capable of."

attracted patients from all over the world in the 19th century,

to the action of light, air and sun, he is in his real element.

air, whilst light takes precedence of every other natural agent, and
is the greatest essential wherever organic life exists. The nervous
system, which is an inherent principle of our organism is acted upon
by light, especially through the skin.
The purpose of the air
treatment is the strengthening of the skin by restoring its natural
functions and vitality and elasticity it has absorbed from its
primitive state when directly in contact with the skin."
Sylvester Graham, wrote in "Lectures on The Science of Human Life":
"If man were always to go entirely naked, the external skin, the
anatomical structure and functional character and relations of which
we have fully contemplated, would be preserved in a more healthy and
vigorous state, and perform its functions more perfectly, and
thereby the whole human system in all its properties, powers and
interests, would be benefitted; the circulation, and particularly
the venous circulation which is near the surface, would be more
free, full and perfect; respiration or breathing would also be more
free, full and perfect.
Voluntary action would be more u~restrained
and easy; the bones would be less liable to disease and distortion;
all the muscles of voluntary motion would be better developed and
In short, the anatomical development and symmetrical
proportion, and the physiological power, and functions of every part
in the whole system, would be more perfect; and, as a natural
consequence, the sensual appetites would be more purely instinctive,
and exert a less energetic and despotic influence on the mental and
moral faculties, and imagination would be deprived of its greatest
power to do evil".
EAT FRUITS & PLANTS
TO GET STORED SUN ENERGY
Fruits and plants have the ability to trap and store sun energy. We
get our energy from eating fruits and plants. When we eat fruits &
green leafy vegetables, we are eating stored sun power.
SUNBATHING HAS BEEN USED TO HEAL,
SINCE THE DAWN OF HISTORY
"For untold centuries the sun has been worshiped as the visible
symbol of the creative power," wrote Bernarr McFadden.
"From the dawn of history the sun has been utilized specifically as
an aid to the restoration of health and as a means of maintaining
and increasing it.
The ancient, Greeks and Romans, Egyptians and
Assyrians, Arabians, Babylonians and Cretans, the Aztecs, and the
early Chinese and Japanese, the inhabitants of India and most of the
other nations that were glorious in their day, derived their superb
health partly from their contact with the rays of the sun, and
healed their ailments by their aid."
HIPPOCRATES, THE FATHER OF MEDICINE, PRACTICED THE SUN-CURE
Hippocrates, "the Father of Medicine", practiced the sun-cure in the
temple of Esculapius on the island of Cos, in ancient Greece.
"medicine (drugs) very little but relied upon
sunlight, hydrotherapy, diet and water drinking, rest, and gymnastic
exercise," wrote Bernarr McFadden.
SUNBATHING HELPS EVERYONE
FEEL, GET AND FUNCTION BETTER
Everyone sick or well, looks better, feels better, gets better and
functions better, after exposing every part of their nude bodies to
the beautiful sunshine. Sunbathe each moment you can. It helps you
in every possible way!

research could not confirm these claims. Hira Ratan Manek teaches
how we can live on just the energy of sunlight and water. He has

Sungazing - History
The Sun is the biggest planet in our
Its circumference is 109 times bigger than that of
the earth and it can accommodate 1.3 million earths in it. Its
distance from our earth is 150 million km and it weighs 333,000
times the weight of the earth.
Also, 99.8% of the weight of our
planetary system is the sun's weight. Sun continuously sends out
fireballs, which are 50,000 km long, 9,000 km wide and whose each
jump towards the earth is 200,000 km. Due to all these magnificent
powers of the sun, it is no wonder that it has inspired the mankind
throughout the history.
It has been worshipped from the earliest of
times by many societies living in different parts of the world. Each
civilization had a different story about it.
In ancient Egypt, the sun was worshipped as Ra. Mankind and animals
were said to have come into being through his tears. The king
himself was believed to be the "Son of Ra". It was also believed
that on his death, the king would be re-united with his father, the
sun. The pyramids were regarded as a ramp or a means of access to
Additionally, Ra was believed to travel across the sky in a
boat and through the underworld all night. There, in order to rise
again the next morning, he had to defeat
the evil Apep. He was
represented as rising from the ocean of chaos to greet the world
In ancient Greece and Rome, Apollo came to be associated with the
sun. In Mesopotamia it was Shamash. The Indian tribes of America
have many interesting tales associated with the sun.
One of the
stories is as follows.
"A long time ago there lived a selfish chief who kept the sun and
moon and stars for himself.
The world had no light at all. At that
time, there lived a raven who wanted to get the light and give it to
the world. The raven changed himself into a leaf and was swallowed
by the chief's daughter, who became pregnant and soon had a baby.
The baby was none other than the raven. The baby could see many
bundles hung about in the chief's house and started to cry for them.
The chief was an indulgent grandfather and gave the child the first
bundle. This was a bag of stars and the raven threw them up the
chimney. They quickly arranged themselves in the sky. The child
cried again and this time his grandfather gave him a bundle, which
contained the moon. Again the child threw it to the sky.
later, the child started to cry again. This time the grandfather
gave him the sun and the child quickly changed into a raven and flew
out of the window.
This was how light came to this world."
Science has proved the need for sunlight for growth, agriculture,
health and numerous other aspects of human life.
Many of the myths
from around the world reflect a belief in the need for sunlight in
the greater scheme of things. Indian mythology too understands the
role of the sun. It was worshipped as "Surya" in India in ancient
times. According to the Indian mythology, Surya was responsible for
health and life, a reflection of what was perhaps the scientific
belief of the time. Surya is one of the principal vedic deities. He
is pictured as riding across the sky on a chariot pulled by seven
One wonders the analogy between seven horses and the seven
colors of light.
There is a practice in getting energy on a temporary
basis by the Americas. To get energy for their body, Native Indians
take sunbath by standing in the sun for two hours exposing maximum
parts of their body and they don't need to eat food on those days.
They sustain on micro food of the sunlight. When clouds gather we
become gloomy. We see the sun and get energetic.
The HRM phenomenon is in fact a rediscovery of a scientific ritual,
which was used to heal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
diseases in ancient times.
Ancient Indians called this practice
Surya Namaskar, where ancient Egyptians and Americans called it
Heliotherapy and Europeans called it Apollo therapy. In the
Americas, the sun was also known as INTA.
The scientific technique
practiced by Hira Ratan Manek is how he derives his energy from the
solar energy of the sun.
Mankind is also using solar energy for
running solar cookers, solar heaters, and solar cars. Similarly,
what HRM does is to convert himself into a solar car by using
sunlight. Traditionally, human beings eat secondary sources of
energy as the plants and other vegetation depends heavily on the sun
for their growth, simply put, the idea here is to learn how to
absorb energy from the primary source, that is, the sun itself.
There is a scientific explanation of what may be occurring during
the exercise of this method.
Since the brain is a powerful recipient
and the retina and the pineal gland (third eye) being equipped with
photoreceptor cells, a kind of photo analysis could be taking place
during the Surya Namaskar, which provides a person with all kinds of
energy and vitamins that are required for the proper functioning of
his internal organs.
Additionally, the rays of the sun with seven
colors have a cure for all kinds of diseases such as Alzheimer's,
Parkinson's, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer and others. If
world peace is to be achieved, everyone should have a perfect
balance of mind.
Thus, this method can also contribute to the world
