WOAH!!! This one guy from India stopped eating in 1995 and now he just drinks water, tea & coffee... Then he looks at the sun for like an hour each day to 'feed upon it's energy'

This has got to be a joke. No way a person can live and stay healthy without eating!!! Much less for 8 years.

LOL

Yeah I'm thinking about it, It'd be kind of cool,
but think about it...

Millions of people would loose their jobs,
Farmers, Fisherman, McDonalds employees...

Is a solution to world hunger worth it?

I hate McDonalds employees, thats probably why he stopped eating all together. He must've watched Ronald McDonald spitting in his burger and sticking his nasty in his fries.

In the Hindu tradition, it's common for a man, after he has raised a family, to become what's called an 'ascetic'. Ascetics fast and abstain from sex, while focusing on spiritual enlightenment (which includes a recognition that all of the world is an illusion of sorts). Once they have come to the point where they 'realize' that the material world doesn't exist, they often go stretches of time surviving on tea and water only.

I've heard of ascetics who can go for weeks without solid food, but never years. To try to be scientific, it could be argued that guys like this are practicing an extreme form of metabolic control.

WOW!!! Great stuff dream... That's kind of like the Christian Scientists right? Aren't they the one's who believe life is an illusion and we don't even exist, so when they get hurt they're not really hurt? Reminds me of the Matrix, "there is no spoon". LOL.

Well said 'onlyinmydreams'.


This is a fact even as astounding as it may seem. I applaud the man and he is obviously onto something here that can very well lead to some great things. This man is not the only case, Indian's of India, the Tibetan's, etc., have learned as anyone else should........the mind is a powerful tool. This guy is merely taking knowledge of how plant life works and applying it to himself...think about it.

Noble Executor of the Protoss Homeworld, Leader of the Sargas Tribe of Aiur, General Tassadar,

I do not know what the Christian Scientist believe, though I'll try to read up on it tomorrow. In the Hindu tradition, which has been around since late prehistoric times, the world which we call the 'real one' is refered to as Samsara... an illusion created by consciousness itself. Within the Hindu tradition, a person can be reincarnated, indefinately, as other creatures throughout history. Correct behaviour will get you 'promoted' to the ranks of the gods or other beings, though 'unclean' behaviour will get you demoted to a worm. most of us bounce back and forth between various mammal forms, however
Your cleanliness, or moral, rating is your 'karma'.

Buddhism grew out of these Hindu concepts. However, in Buddhism, the 'goal' is to escape from the cycle of rebirth entirely, by recognizing that EVERY aspect of the world, and consciousness itself, is an illusion. Someone whose mind is no longer dependent on material-world thinking is an 'enlightened' person who can escape the world into a state called 'nirvana' upon death. "Nirvana' cannot be described to anyone who is still 'in the world', and so no one knows what it is like. According to legend, Siddartha, the Buddha, achieved enlightenment but chose to stay on as a human so as to teach others the way towards enlightenment.


..that's what i remember from college, at least. There's a lot more that can be said, butm, suffice it to say, Hinduism comes in various falvors and traditions, though, depsite popular belief in the West, the traditions that talk about 'Chakras' and stuff like that are only minority beliefs in India.

I have heard of other instances of this also, usually from those who are adepts in the eastern religions. It would be terrific if it were this way for all of us. Especially those of us who have food addictions. I suspect that this person is able to live without food because their body vibrates at a higher frequency, and thus is able to use the energy that exists at a higher level.

Most of the astounding feats (while somewhat mind over matter), have been proven faked in various ways (i.e. such as levitation tricks, and the like), and India certainly has it's share of said quacks. I'm sure this guy is sneaking a protein bar now and then.... It's very simple, without gas, a car won't go, without food, humans die. He is not a plant, he has no chlorophyll, and is not feeding off the sun. While I'm a firm believer in mind over matter, and psychic abilities, there are some lines we haven't crossed yet, and this is one of them... I'm not buying it....

Perhaps he absorbed sun's radiation, it is also a form of energy.
His body perhaps converted that energy into chemical.

Yeah, I am gonna try this lol.

But, yeah, I don't think NASA would waste their time, if they didn't think it wasn't possible. NASA might even put cameras or something on him so he can't CHEAT the process and eat..who knows...I am going to try this and see what happens, results to come

You could lose so much weight. Great for fat people. But the job thing is a big issue. What jobs wouldn't it get rid of? Computer related, TV, ummm. Geez not too many left.
Kinda scary. I would save that article it may become classified soon.

Maybe he has stumbled on too something. If they publish how he does it I will do waht he does. Maybe if you start it at an earlier age you could develop psychic polwers from unlocking the parts of your brain you dont use.
