Today’s Between Master and Disciples – “Sunyogi Umasankar: Becoming Food-free through the Practice of Sun Yoga” – will be presented in Hindi and English, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacese (Vietnamese), Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech-Slovak, English, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish and Thai.

In scriptures, the human body is often referred to as the temple of God. Yet, it is quite an uncommon privilege for any soul to attain this sacred abode that houses the Divine, as it is truly a blessing to be reborn as a human being. On several occasions, Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the rarity of this phenomenon:

To be reincarnated in the human world is hard. You have to have enough Human Quality. You have to have affinity with the parents and with the society, with the people around which you are born. Very difficult. To be a human, you need some merit. You have done something good in the past in order to be able to pick a human birth.

As a living temple of God, the human body is fully equipped with miraculous wonders that can be awakened in those who are spiritually conscious and have complete faith in the Creator of all life. Inedia, Latin for “fasting,” is the human ability to live without food. Since time immemorial, there have always been individuals who can sustain themselves on prana, or the vital life force. Through the grace of the Providence, inediates, people who follow a food-free lifestyle, can draw the energy from nature to nourish themselves:

They live on the chi from the ground, or from the forest, and from the sun and from the air. They make use of all that. Or they live on love, on faith alone. These individuals are known as breatharians (pranarians or inediates), solarians, or waterians, and they come from all walks of life, from different cultures, and all corners of the world.

Indeed, the possibilities and miracles in this life as our benevolent Creator has designed for us are endless; we only need to connect within to recognize our abounding largess as God’s children. Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly recommended a weekly series on Supreme Master Television to introduce those individuals of the past and present who have chosen to live food-free on Earth. May their spiritual stories enthrall you; may hearts be opened, and horizons be expanded.

We now invite you to join us for the first part of our 3-part program, “Sunyogi Umasankar: Becoming Food-free through the Practice of Sun Yoga,” on Between Master and Disciples.

Sunyogi Umasankar is one of India’s most well-known sun gazers. A native from Calcutta, he developed an early interest in yoga and meditation. Although educated as a scientist, at the age of 18, he decided to spend a part of his life walking through every state of India to spread the message of “Universal Unity, Peace and Brotherhood.” For six years, Umasankar Ji walked throughout the Indian subcontinent with no money or possessions. Umasankar Ji started his practice of Sun Yoga in 1995 while staying at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, South India.

Soon, he noticed that his hunger was dissipating, and after one year of practicing Sun Yoga, he abstained from food entirely and lived solely on the sun’s energy for four months. From 1996 to 2007, Umasankar Ji ate only once a month or once every few months, and only when he felt that he shouldn’t refuse the food which was offered to him by pure-hearted devotees. Recently, he has completed a two-year retreat high in the Himalayas and has returned to the world to continue teaching Sun Yoga. Umasankar Ji has taught the art of Sun Yoga to 2 million people worldwide. Sunyogi Umasankar explained to Supreme Master Television how he first discovered the ancient art of sun gazing in 1995.

That was in the morning at 7:30 to 8 o’clock – that was my free time – so I went to the seashore for the sea meditation. At that time, I felt that if I am wasting my time then I am wasting my life, so I have no right to waste my time. So I went to the seashore to look at the sea, to get some knowledge from the sea, the ocean. But I was very lucky, the sun was rising on the eastern side and then sun was reflected by the sea water and it came to my eyes.

After having gazed for the first time for a prolonged period at the sun, Sunyogi Umarsankar was concerned that he was losing his eyesight.

My whole eyes were burning – not only eyes, my whole body was burning. My intellectual mind told me, “Oh, I lost my eyesight! How can I stop it?” Then I closed my eyes very, very tightly, as much as possible, but the reflecting light, it was still hurting my eyes. Then I just turned my eyes to the opposite side and opened my eyes. I felt, “Oh, I lost my eyesight.” But when I saw outside, there I saw the small sand and it was so clear – it was visible, very small sand. Then, I felt, “Oh, I didn’t lose my eyesight!”

While staying at Pondicherry, Umasankar Ji continued to meditate every morning, sitting on a rock by the sea. Although the experience was at first harsh and uncomfortable, after 4 days he started to see what he described as “seven bright colors radiating from the sun, slowly reaching closer to the ground.”

Initially, these cosmic rays did not touch him, but three months after he had begun this practice, he felt that the cosmic energy from the sun touched his body which gave him a deep feeling of peace.

One day I got success by my offering, my surrendering to the sun, that the light could touch my body. Before, I didn’t know that it is a yoga and I didn’t have any expectation, that I have to get something. I just got interested, and my feeling was that I enjoyed it – means I got peace. So that’s why I was going there. But that morning that light touched me, that was a wonderful morning. And at noon time, every day I used to take a big noontime lunch, but that day I couldn’t feel my hunger; I was not hungry. Then I felt, “Oh, today it might be that that light has touched me and so I was not feeling hungry.” Then I felt, “How it could be?” So at night, again I got to my meditation, to know the process – how it can be, to become “hungerless”?

Then, at nighttime I saw that sunlight when I was looking through the pineal gland, then the pineal gland got connected to that cosmic energy and that cosmic energy causes the metabolism. A five-element energy was separated and that five-element energy goes to my brain to bring back that energy to send to each and every organ and every cell inside. So through that energy I got charged so that’s why food is not required for me.

Food is not required for our body; we need the energy, that kinetic energy. So that kinetic energy also indirectly comes from the sun. I got the vision that trees can receive through the chlorophyll that cosmic energy, the sun energy, so how I can be able to receive the sun’s cosmic energy? Then I saw that inside the blood there are photoelectric cells. Those photo-electric cells can draw that sun energy and create that inside food preparation. So that’s why I got energy directly from the sun.

Why is the sun so important to us? At a videoconference with Supreme Master Television staff on October 3, 2010, Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the immense blessing which the sun offers to all beings on Earth.

First of all, physically speaking, without the sun, we’d be dying, or dead or gone already. Many things cannot grow, humans cannot grow – there is no food, no circulation of the waters, purification of the air, etc., etc. The sun has a lot of benefits: the sun cures many diseases. For example, in the old time, they did not have tuberculosis medicine yet, they would put the patient in a sunny room, or sunny area, and open a window, let the sun come in to cure the TB. Of course, when it’s too heavy, maybe they cannot, but maybe in the initial stage, then they can cure like that.

The sun cures your aches and pain, it eliminates toxins through sweat – when it’s hot, you sweat – and also it cures some of the diseases or other ailments. The sun gives benefits to all, bad or good. The sun would glorify the whole Earth that we live on and it gives life to all beings: plants, minerals, animals, etc. The sun gives also people happiness, carefree feeling. The sun is necessary for all on Earth.

Many people have benefitted from practicing Sun Yoga. Ms. Dak Lee from Kuala Lumpur describes her experience:

My name is Dak Lee and I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have been practicing Sun Yoga for the last ten days after my retreat in Kahang, in Johor and with our teacher, Swami. I find that Sun Yoga is very interesting because it has brought many benefits to me and I find that the most obvious benefits would be health benefits. I find that, actually, my health has improved tremendously, and actually, I tested on one of the health problems that I have. I have lazy eyes and after five days, I managed to sort out the problems. I am actually ninety-five percent recovered now and I am very happy with that. I don’t suffer a lot of headaches anymore or strain in my eyes or in my face.

And the other benefits that I have experienced are that my body is able to regulate heat. I don’t need to sleep with air conditioning or stay in air conditioning rooms, even though Malaysia is a tropical country. I realize that I do not need to turn on the fan anymore even though it’s very hot outside. And I find that I am comfortable with whatever temperature that I am in. And also, another thing is I find that my mind is more peaceful and I am able to concentrate better. I find that Sun Yoga has actually helped me to improve my concentration quickly and I am able to settle down my mind.

Sunyogi Umasankar explains that there are no special requirements that one needs to adhere to when practicing Sun Yoga.

The sun is for all. The sun is for the baby, the sun is for every plant, everybody; it is there. Sun Yoga can be for everybody. Yoga is the connection between the soul to the Supreme Soul. In our cosmos to the universal cosmos, yoga is the balance of in and out. So, inner organ to outer organ, when we can get balance – that is yoga. Through the sun, we do that balance, so we call that “Sun Yoga.” There is no boundary of caste, color, creed and religion. And everybody can do the sun meditation, and the principle is that we have to make friendship with the sun, we have to surrender to the sun.

Thank you, cherished viewers, for accompanying us on Between Master & Disciples. Join us next Sunday for part 2 of our feature on Sunyogi Umasankar. Now, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Good People, Good Work, right after Noteworthy News. May you benefit tremendously from the daily blessings of the loving sun.

Meet Sunyogi Umasankar, a sun gazer and Indian yogi who has been able to live food-free through the practice of Sun Yoga. When you’re balance in and out completely, the inner cosmos to the universal cosmos, when we get balance – that is enlightenment. Beginners, at the very beginning, they can stop their monkey mind. That means they’re balancing the space element. And when they are looking at the sun, they are not feeling that the sun is hot – means they’re balancing their fire element energy. After that, they forget their breath also – means balancing the air element. And some, they forget their thirst also – means it is balancing the water element also.

We now invite you to join us for the second part of our 3-part program, “Sunyogi Umasankar: Becoming Food-free through the Practice of Sun Yoga,” on Between Master and Disciples.

Sunyogi Umashankar is one of India’s most well-known sun gazers. A native from Calcutta, he developed an early interest in yoga and meditation. Although educated as a scientist, at the age of 18, he decided to spend a part of his life walking through every state of India to spread the message of “Universal Unity, Peace and Brotherhood.”

Umashankar Ji started his practice of Sun Yoga in 1995 while staying at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, South India.

From 1996 to 2007, Umashankar Ji ate only once a month or once every few months, and only when he felt that he shouldn’t refuse the food which was offered to him by pure-hearted devotees. Recently, he has completed a two-year retreat high in the Himalayas and has returned to the world to continue teaching Sun Yoga. Sun Yogi Umasankar shares with Supreme Master Television his process of becoming food-free while he was performing his daily duties at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry.

I stopped eating my breakfast. Then it continued for 6 months. On the 2nd February of 1996, I was able to stop my dinner also. And then on the 17th of August, 1996, I was able to stop all my eating, drinking, and even sleeping also. At that time I was only meditating. So, for four months more, completely, I was not eating, not drinking, not sleeping. And then I felt, “Oh, I got something!” And Sun Yoga is not instant yoga. Our scriptures mention it very long ago, the Upanishads and in all the scriptures Sun yoga has been mentioned. So in the fourth month, I got that simple technique, how we normal people, we can see the sun and we can get benefit.

So, how does one practice Sun Yoga? Umarsankar Ji explains the basic technique.

Some simple techniques used are there, yama (precepts), nyama (virtuous actions), asana (body posture). So, the first principle is there. First, we should sit properly, if possible we can sit in padmasana (lotus posture), siddhasana (“perfect” pose), gomukhasana (cow-face posture), vrajrasana (Zen pose). These four Asanas are very much preferred for the sun meditation. But if somebody can’t sit, they can sit at the beginning level in sukhasana (easy crossed-legged pose); and if somebody can’t sit on the ground, they can sit on the chair.

But only one thing, the backbone should be straight, relax the body, and sometimes we have to close our eyes to prepare our mind. And then we’ll do pranam or prostrate to our own parents, then we’ll prostrate to own guru, guardians, teachers, and to whom we learn something, maybe younger, maybe elder than us, maybe enemy, maybe a friend of ours. Then, if Muslim, we have to pay respect to Muhammad; if we are Buddhist, we should pay respect to Lord Buddha; if we are Christian, then we should pay respect to Lord Jesus; if we are Hindu, we should pay respect to all the gods and goddesses, those we believe in.

Equally important for the practice of Sun Yoga is to have the right attitude of mind. We should feel the broad mind: all living beings are one family – maybe human being, maybe animal being, insect being, or plant kingdom – we are all one family. We should love all. Then we have to put ourselves the question: “Who am I? What do I want? Why do I want it? What is the purpose of life? What is the relation between what do I want and what I’m doing now?” Again and again, we have to put that question and prepare our mind. We should not expect the answer; the answer will come on time. Then we put strong determination: “I will do it. I must do it. Then we’ll feel the sun is our best friend, our life, and we’ll prepare our mind to look at the sun, to open our eyes, and make friends with it.

Sunyogi Umasankar revealed that of the many thousands of people who have practiced sun gazing with the technique he teaches, many have improved their eyesight. He also explained how to best benefit from the process of sun gazing without endangering our eyes.

Slowly we have to open the eyes and look a few inches above the sun, and through our pineal gland. We are not looking directly with the retina; the sunlight is not coming directly to the retina. Look from the ajna chakra (the third eye), means the center point over the eyebrow. When we are getting that there is the pineal gland, the pineal gland will be activated. And while we are looking there, a few inches above the sun, when we are able to adjust, the eyes are not getting pain, so then the eyes get relaxed. Then we can see through the pineal gland at the center of the sun. And slowly, slowly, we can see the sun, inside, will be a black hole. So that’s the way we have to look, that is the beginning level.

How can gazing at a physical object such as the sun benefit our spiritual development? In a videoconference with Supreme Master Television staff, Supreme Master Ching Hai explained that the sun, as well as the moon and the stars, exists not only as objects on the material plane but are in fact great spiritual beings.

The Sun is a great, great, great, great spiritual being, who manifests himself to help our planet, to nourish all beings on our Earth. So, we always have to thank the Sun. And in the ancient time, people worshipped the Sun God and for that reason as well. He is beautiful, beautiful inside; loves us all the time. No discriminating, always love, love, love. And whenever you look up to the Sun, you feel only love, love, love. And if you have time, you sit in the sun sometime, you feel happier, no? ( Yes.)

That’s why in summer people feel very happy, happier than in winter because it’s due to the plentiful sunshine, yes, plenty of sunshine. And it’s not because the Sun doesn’t love us in winter. It’s just that the absence of his presence makes us forget the happiness within us. The Sun has also beings in it, but not physical beings. The beings in the Sun also help the great being of the Sun to protect our planet, to help all things to grow, and to send us happiness. All they do is just send us bliss and happiness and love. They exist just for that.

One of Sunyogi Umasankar’s students, Mr. Datoallen Yong, speaks to Supreme Master Television about his experience through the practice of Sun Yoga.

My name is Datoallen Yong from Malaysia. I started this Sun Yoga gazing since 2007. I met my Sun Yoga Master Umasankar at Nainital, at the foothills of the Himalayas. I started to do Sun gazing and I found the tremendous benefits that I have obtained. Firstly, I became a much calmer person, and I can see a lot of clarity in my mind, and love starts to pervade around me, and I exude a lot of love because Sun Yoga makes me a loving person. And more importantly, I am a meditator, so I manage to stay focused in my meditation; I stay a longer time because it really enhances my meditation. And also eventually, I begin to know more about myself and to understand more about what is my next journey. So it comes back to self realization eventually. The sun energy is free, so anyone can enjoy it. It is a life-sustaining energy.

In 2007, Sun Yogi Umasankar began to eat regularly again, not because he felt the need to eat but because he felt that the people around him paid too much attention to the fact that he had renounced eating and drinking. According to Umasankar Ji, becoming food-free is only a by-product of the practice of Sun Yoga while the main goal is spiritual enlightenment.

Actually, enlightenment is the way we get connection from the inner soul to the universal soul – that is enlightenment. When you’re balance in and out completely, the inner cosmos to the universal cosmos, when we get balance – that is enlightenment. So when we are looking at the sun then, at the very beginning – beginners also feel this when they are looking the sun – the sun becomes soft and they saw the blue sky inside the sun. Then I ask them, “Was your monkey mind disturbing to you?” They were surprised. They forgot themselves and they told me, “No, there cannot be a monkey mind; it was stopped.” You see, that “monkey mind” means a disturbed mind. To make it stop, it is very, very tough, very, very difficult. But beginners, at the very beginning, they can stop their monkey mind. That means they’re balancing the space element.

And when they are looking at the sun, they are not feeling that the sun is hot – means they’re balancing their fire element energy. After that, they forget their breath also – means balancing the air element. And some, they forget their thirst also – means it is balancing the water element also. And after practicing sun meditation, everybody was completely relaxed. They enjoyed their life; they are not feeling tired and they themselves then forget their age limit also. Because of that much relaxation is there. That means it gives us the earth element benefit, balance, also.

During his stays in the Himalayas, Sunyogi Umasankar had the great fortune to have the darshan of the great immortal Master Mahavatar Babaji twice. From Sri Babaji, Umsankar Ji learnt the secret of the 29 chakras as well as other secrets of the universe and Creation. Be sure to join us again next Sunday on Between Master and Disciples when Sunyogi Umasankar shares this divine knowledge with us.

The sun is the ultimate source of all the living beings, all the living source. So the sun can help us in all aspects. The sun energy, when we are gazing through the pineal gland, that energy charges our each and every cell, when it is passing through each and every cell, where the toxins are, where the blockage are, that blockage energy will be discharged by the sun cosmic energy.

Sunyogi Umashankar is one of India’s most well-known sun gazers. A native from Calcutta, he developed an early interest in yoga and meditation. Although educated as a scientist, at the age of 18, he decided to spend a part of his life walking through every state of India to spread the message of “Universal Unity, Peace and Brotherhood.”

Umashankar Ji started his practice of Sun Yoga in 1995 while staying at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, South India. Soon, he noticed that his hunger was dissipating, and after one year of practicing Sun Yoga, he abstained from food entirely and lived solely on the sun’s energy for four months. From 1996 to 2007, Umashankar Ji ate only once a month or once every few months, and only when he felt that he shouldn’t refuse the food which was offered to him by pure-hearted devotees. Recently, he has completed a two-year retreat high in the Himalayas and has returned to the world to continue teaching Sun Yoga. When Sunyogi Umsankar first started his practice of sun gazing in 1995, he was surprised that after three days his sight became so sharpened that he was suddenly able to see water molecules.

On the third day I was able to see water molecules, small, small water molecules. Then I felt “How I can see the water molecules, am I dreaming?” Then I rolled my eyes very hard, very hard, and again watched. No, there were the same things, that means I was not dreaming. Then I just pinched myself, “Yes, I’m not dreaming, so how it could be?” And for knowing that, at night time I was sitting on the seashore for meditation, looking for the solution, how it could be, and suddenly, in deep meditation I saw my own brain, the cerebrum, cerebellum, and pineal gland, how the internal work is going on, I saw there.

How 2% of brain we are using, and all the external technology we’ve got developed, so 2% of the brain is the external brain and 98% of the brain is our internal brain. There is an internal technology. We are not able to use that internal technology. I saw Galileo standing there, and how Galileo was arising the thought to get the discovery of the telescope. Then I got interested, “That 2% of the brain has created that telescope and our 98, 100% of the brain is higher than this telescope. So my vision power is much better than the telescope, so that’s why it (the water molecules) could be visible.”

In addition to enhancing one’s vision, as is the case with Sunyogi Umansankar, practitioners of Sun Yoga discuss how the practice has enhanced their lives.

I am Youngka from Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. Three years ago, I had a nasty liver problem and the doctor told me it’s about 80% damaged. On that day I was very down. I went back home, I watched a documentary channel and discovered about sun meditation. After the 10-day course, I was not feeling sick or had any disturbance on myself. Feel energetic now, already for the past three years.

I think that the most important benefit is that it makes me a happier person and I smile more.

In a videoconference with Supreme Master Television, Supreme Master Ching Hai also spoke about the many benefits that the sun brings, including the potential for one to become food-free through sun gazing.

I myself love the sun. I adore the sun. I could stay in the sun all day, and if it is too hot I just cover a little bit with the cloth. I could look at the sun, midday even; it doesn’t hurt me.

It regulates, or it screens a little bit so that my eyes won’t hurt. The sun is a beautiful being. I love the sun forever. I love the sun a lot, and the sun loves us forever. Remember I told you how I feel better in a tent than in a big house? (Yes.) I still do. Why? Because more contact with the sun, more shining through and less restriction. Because the tent is very small, when you sit in the tent, even if you are not outside in the sun, the sun shines through. You feel happier.

If you gaze into the sun about 10 or so minutes in the morning, early morning, when the sun just rises, and 10 or so minutes – more or less… more, not less – in the evening, when the sun sets. Some people do that so they don't have to eat anymore, okay? (Yes.) And health benefits, you know already; I told you. If we go sunbathing, it cures many illnesses and even cures our psychological misalignment and also depression and all that. You see, some countries with less sun, they feel less happy than the countries with a lot of sun.

Sunyogi Umasankar shared with us the knowledge of the 29 chakras and the different stages on the path of Sun Yoga. This knowledge had been revealed to him by the immortal master Mahavatar Babaji during Sunyogi Umasankar’s stays in the Himalayas.

In the samadhi stage, at that time the mind force is higher than the gravitation force, so at that time our body weight would be negative. Easily, our life force will come out from the body, but our subconscious mind will be connected, so we will not die but the doctor will check, our pulse will be dead. We are dead, the doctor will declare, but still we are alive, we can come back. So “sama-adhi” means we are inside and outside, we are the microcosm and macrocosm. We got connection, so we make the balance – so that’s called enlightened. But Sun Yoga not only stops in the enlightened stage, Sun Yoga is started from there. Yoga is the connection between the soul and the supreme soul, from the inner cosmos to the universal cosmos. At that time, only we got connection with the universe. So, Sun Yoga is started from there, and there are so many higher, higher stages.

A medical investigation conducted by the Kaivalyadhama Research Institution in Lonavla, India, concluded that Sunyogi Umashankar’s overall physical fitness level remained unchanged after a period of being food-free and that he “had achieved a substantial control over his heart activity.”

The stage when we are just after samadhi, that is the Amrit chakras - means we can conquer our hunger, then we can conquer our thirst also. That is called Jivanmukta chakras. After that we can get a “diseaseless” body – means there will be no disease. After that is the Paramhansa stage – means everywhere will be equal. At that time, we will not be disturbed anywhere. That is the Paramhansa stage. Then the Swatana stage, means no enemy, including the animals. Then the Amar chakra, means our body can be immortal; it’s possible.

Some people of the scientific mind are thinking how it could be possible. You see, the environmental vibration and the body-mind vibration will be equal. At that time, the environment cannot disturb our life force, so the life force will not be destroyed by the environmental energy. So that’s why this body, we can keep it a much longer time. That’s called the immortal body. So as Maha Avatar (Babaji), from whom I learned that, he is still alive; he is minimum 1500 years old and he gave me darshan in the Himalayas twice. And he came through the light and the light started vibrating and after that vibration he came out in the physical body, and his body was alive – and his eyes, there were movement, his smiling face – and he gave me all this knowledge of the 29 chakras, what I’m now explaining here. And he gave me

that creation law of the universe and why creation was started and what mistakes we are doing, why global warming that we created. All the creation laws, and how the mistakes could be solved also – everything Babaji has taught me. So that’s why I’m very grateful. I’m very thankful to Maha Avatar Babaji who taught me, actually it is his knowledge. So after that, slowly, slowly we can get connection totally with the sun and moon. So, the enlightened stage is the very beginning stage for the Sun Yoga. “Enlightened stage” means when our inside cosmic light and the universal cosmic light become one, got balance, peaceful.

Spiritual Blessing Lines are pure essence of blessing to bless the whole planet. But we have destroyed too many, yes. Now there are some left over, I’m trying to fix it, to strengthen and to lengthen or to complete it, close whatever possible, whenever possible, so that we can keep the planet for a little longer, until humans change into a more compassionate, natural lifestyle. Because humans’ nature should be loving and kind.
