Impurities in the body show themselves chieﬂy as disease, as pain, as the discomfort of heat and cold, as the necessity of the excretive processes. The ﬁrst sign of Kayashuddhi is the disappearance of all tendency to disease; the second is liberation from the dwandwa of heat and cold, which will either go altogether or change to pleasurable sensations often marked by electrical phenomena; and the third, the diminution or disappearance of excretive activity. Pain also can be entirely eliminated from the body, but even before the reaction called pain is got rid of, or even without its being got rid of, the discomfort of pain can be removed and replaced by a sort of bodily Ananda. Finally, the craving of hunger and thirst disappears from the prana to which it belongs and the dependence on food diminishes or ceases. The perfection of all this is the basis of Kayasiddhi. But perfect Kayasiddhi includes other developments such as the siddhis of Mahima, Laghima, Anima and the invulnerability and incorruptibility of the body, powers hitherto attained in the Kaliyuga only by very advanced Siddhas. They depend primarily on the replacement of the ordinary ﬁvefold processes of prana, apana, vyana, samana and udana by the single simpliﬁed action of the original or elemental force of prana, the inﬁnite vital energy surcharged with electricity, vaidyutam.
Jani, who has lived as a wandering sadhu (holy man) since the age of seven, claims to be a “breatharian”, someone who can live on a “spiritual life force” alone. He believes he is being sustained by a goddess who pours an “elixir” through a hole in his palate.
At the conclusion of the experiment, during which time he neither ate nor drank, nor excreted urine or excrement, neurologist Sudhir Shah said, “We still do not know how he survives. It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is.”
Does this mean Jani is authentic? Well, not exactly. After reading this story the other day, I decided to do a little digging and found out Mr. Jani and Dr. Shah pulled a similar publicity stunt in 2003 but that time things didn’t go so well.

The Chinese name of Pure Yang Mudra is also a special symbol. In classical Chinese traditions, the function of a name is to carry and convey meaning in the same way a symbol carries and conveys complex levels of meaning. Therefore, the name of an object should carry all the information contained in that object. The Chinese name of Pure Yang Mudra is “Chunyangyin” 纯阳印, and this name carries multiple layers of meaning and contains its intentions. The original meaning of “Chun” 纯 is silk according to the second century dictionary, Analyzing Simple Lines and Explaining Complex Graphs (Shuowen Jiezi 说文解字). The symbolic meaning of “silk” is white, pure, and linking/connecting. Therefore, the character “Chun” 纯 exemplifies pure, purity, or purifying. “Yang” 阳 contains many layers of meaning, including sun, heaven, brightness, and south of a hill or north of a river. “Yin” 印 carries the meaning of official seal. In the terminology of the Daoist tradition, “yin” means mudra. Put together, these three terms make “Chunyangyin” 纯阳印, which tells us that the function of this mudra is to help the practitioner connect with universal qi.
