This practice mainly consists of gazing at the Sun and walking barefoot on the ground – it has been known and practiced for thousands of years. By using the prana of the sun to shift our vibration, sungazing will help us avoid both the physical and psychological illnesses.
Little by little, sungazing keeps a person in the state of perfect health, good mood and high level of life energy. The healing factors are the energies of the Sun and Earth. The freedom from eating also appears later as one of side effects of the high energy level being felt by the person. It happens to almost all sungazing adepts, even those who do not believe this. Noticeable decrease in appetite usually appears after about seven months but it can happen after only three months of constant practice or after nine months.
One of the first persons who made this method widely known again in present time is Hira Ratan Manek from India (www.solarhealing.com). Hira states, “this is a straight-forward yet effective method based on solar energy, which enables one to harmonize and recharge the body with life energy and also invoke the unlimited powers of the mind very easily. Additionally, it allows one to easily liberate from threefold sufferings of humanity such as mental illnesses, physical illnesses and spiritual ignorance.”
Here is a short description of the HRM sungazing method.
Every morning at sunrise, or every evening at sunset, you should gaze at the Sun’s center. Stand barefoot on the ground during the gazing. On the first day start with 10 seconds maximum. On each following day gaze for 10 seconds longer than in the previous day. In this way, if you gaze at the Sun every day, you will reach 5 minutes after the first month and 44 minutes within 9 months. This is the allowed maximum, in other words, do not gaze any longer. The second important activity with his method is walking barefoot on the ground for at least 45 minutes daily, every day, even if you do not gaze at the Sun. When walking, do not look at the Sun. Altogether, if you gaze at the Sun every day, the whole process takes about 9 months to accomplish. After that you do not need to gaze at the Sun every day. It is even recommended that you not. You can do it from time to time to maintain a sufficiently high level of energy. How long and how often you gaze depends on the individual, the climate he/she lives in and the life style that is conducted. Barefoot walking is still recommended every day.
If you live in a place where sunrise and sunset cannot be seen every day, the whole process may take longer. If you missed sungazing for a few days, do not extend the time at the next session. If you had a long break (say, a few weeks), shorten the next gazing time. It is very important for eye protection to finish the gazing not later than one hour from sunrise and start the gazing not earlier than one hour before sunset. It also means that one should not gaze at the Sun during the day, especially not in the midday. I hope that this warning is clear: Forcing the eyes to gaze at the Sun at any other time, except sunrise or sunset, can cause damage to the retina of the eye! Too long period of gazing without preceding gradual adaptation may burn this delicate part of the eye. Because of the burns, if at all the person is able to see, everything may look like an image with holes or spots. Such damage to the retina is considered incurable by the official medicine.
Another person, who promotes information about the beneficial influence of sungazing, is yogi Sunyogi Umasankar who “has discovered a method of absorbing energy directly from the Sun, removing the need to eat, drink or sleep”. Thanks to these abilities Umasankar-ji walked 62000 km in India, without money, teaching his method to people. According to his teaching, the first sungazing is started at the moment of sunrise or sunset. First it should be done for a short time, later the time of gazing is gradually extended. If gazing directly at the Sun dazzles the eyes, one can look a little above it. It is very important to practice regularly.
By the way, here is some information regarding one of the biggest mistakes made by people – the use of sunglasses. There are situations when protecting the eyes with dark glasses is recommended because the eyes are dazzled by too much light. If you have not exercised sungazing such situations would include, among others, electric welding, walking on snow in the mountains when the Sun is shining, or on the beach, long driving periods facing the Sun. Using sunglasses during sunny days usually increases the deficit of life energy the person has. Getting sun rays into the unprotected eyes is an essential part of natural processes required for proper operation of the human psyche and body. This mainly relates to the function of the skin, pineal and pituitary glands. Many so-called “chronic diseases” disappear when an ill person stops using sunglasses and allows sun rays to fall on his/her skin. It is worth to remember that the Sun is the father that gives life to all the planets in this solar system. How does a child feel and develop if the contact with his/her parent is being limited?
