It turns out that an 83-year-old yogi from India spent more than 70 years without drinking water and without eating. Yogi Prahlad Jani was admitted to a hospital in Ahmedabad for a series of medical tests and observation 24 hours a day. This is not the only amazing case that is found even by science in which a man can live without water and food. Among the best known is the German nun Therese Neumann, who, in addition to not eating, regularly lost up to two liters of blood, when christ stigmas were manifested on her body, without having health problems through it. Among the more and more numerous cases in which certain people no longer need physical food, an interesting case is the case of the elderly woman from India encountered by the master Paramahamsa Yoga, who also no longer needed to eat in order to live.
She recounted, however, that the master who initiated her in the secret process forced her not to divulge it, because the Creator wants most beings on Earth to need food, so that the process of its acquisition would subject them to many tests and help them transform and evolve spiritually. This is the authentic perspective of the lived life of a spiritual path of the one who understands that living is important, but decisive is how you live.
Prahlad Jani, originally from Gujarat, says a goddess blessed him when he was eight years old and has been living without food ever since. “These observations will shed little light on human survival in conditions of lack of water and food,” said Dr. G. Ilavazahagan, director of the National Defense Institute, physiology department. Medical tests could help “develop survival strategies in the event of natural disasters, extreme stress conditions or space missions to the moon or Mars,” the specialist said. The ascetic will be scanned by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). His brain and heart activity will be measured with electrodes and he will also undergo blood tests. The institute where the yogi is interned is part of the research and development organization of the Indian Ministry of Defense, which manufactured, in 2009, grenades filled with hot peppers, used to remove the demonstrators. The tests will take between 15 and 20 days. Since he was in the hospital, the ascetic did not drink a drop of water, did not feed himself and went to the toilet, being supervised with both human guard and cameras.
“When scanning we should understand what energy is that allows him to live,” the quoted doctor said, noting that soldiers could benefit from the results of the analysis of the ascetic’s survival capacity. “Jani says she’s meditating to have energy. Our soldiers will not be able to meditate, but we would still like to know more about the man and his body,” he added. The results are due to be known in two months’ time. Two cameras have been installed in his room at the hospital, which operate 24 hours a day, and a mobile camera follows him when he leaves the ward, explains neurologist Sudhir Shah, who is part of the team. The yogi states that he receives a subtle invisible food that appears inside his body in the area above the bone board of the palate – “in the roof of his mouth”.
It is the so-called energy secret center (which anyone has) that has the name of Soma Chakra or subtle “moon”, and on a physical level even a fluid secretion appears that usually reaches the stomach. If, however, this fluid called soma or divine nectar does not reach the stomach but is taken up in some way (for example, at the level of the tongue), it produces certain unusual effects: deep meditation, regeneration, rejuvenation. We can thus find that it is not matter that keeps us alive, but the energy that we access through the resonance that is produced in our being due to the fact that we eat. If we can access this energy in another way, food or water is no longer needed. To obtain such a way of feeding, conscious training and a choice that is not common to ordinary beings is necessary.
