HOST: In script-xures, 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:
Supreme Master Ching Hai: 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.
HOST: 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:
Supreme Master Ching Hai: 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.
HOST: These individuals are known as breatharians, solarians, waterians, or pranarians, 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 part 1 of our 4-part program entitled, “Reine-Claire Lussier: Prana for a Busy Lifestyle,” on Between Master and Disciples.
HOST: On our planet Earth, there exist individuals who choose to do away with physical food and rely on prana, or the cosmic energy, for their nourishment. Today we travel to Canada to meet a very busy pranarian with an active lifestyle.
RCL(f): My name is Reine-Claire and I am the director of the School of Life Consciousness, a place that was created to accommodate those who want to make a profound transformation process,people who are aware of what is happening on the planet and who want to participate in the awakening
HOST: Sixty-three-year-old Reine-Claire has lived as a pranarian for the past 10 years. However, it wasn’t a lifestyle choice that she thought she would have chosen when she was younger. In fact, nothing in her background had prepared her for a life without food.
RCL(f): I have a very ordinary life with a very ordinary family in an ordinary city. Nothing special, a great big family, a most ordinary and normal education, nothing could have prepared me for what I am living today.
I never planned nor desired for anything that is happening today in my life. I just kept following the thread of the inward development of my soul. This was the result. So I studied normally, I was a teacher, so I finished my courses at the university.
I taught children, I taught adults – I taught from kindergarten to university. Then I left the institutional environment because at that time I didn’t know the word “matrix.” But I felt it inside – I was living it – so I left that world.
