What is the longest you have gone without a piece of food or a glass of water? A holy man in India claims that he has not eaten or drank anything for 75 years! Prahlad Jani is the 83-year old man who lives in a cave near Amba JI Temple without any kind of food or water since the age of 7. Why in the world would a man choose to not eat for such a long time, and how is he still alive?
Mr. Jani claims that he has left his home at the age of seven searching for spiritual mystery when he was blessed by 3 Hindu goddesses. Here is the story in his own words:
“Three goddesses appeared to me and bade me to follow. Ma Kali, Ma Lakshmi, and Ma Saraswati. I consented, prepared myself, and asked: ‘What about my food?’ They each put a finger on my lip and said ‘You need not be concerned about food ever again’. I was 7, and from that day I stopped eating and drinking.”
His claims were scientifically studied by a team of 30 specialists during three weeks of a variety of tests at a hospital.
They took him into then Sterling Hospital in Ahmedabad, India. They put him under 24 hour observation in front of cameras and found out that he did not take any kind of food or water in the 15 days that he was in hospital. No food or water for half that time would be a sure death for anybody else. And he did not pass urine or stool either.
The doctors were completely surprised at this miracle. “We believe that the sadhu Prahlad Jani’s body went through biological transformation as a result of meditation and powerful yoga in a completely natural environment that he stays.” said neurologist Dr. Sudhir Shah.
The doctors in India are guessing that this phenomenon relates the Amrita Chakra (third eye chakra), as Hindu vedas speak of it being able to produce a divine nectar which sustains life.
What’s more is that his brain resembles that of a 25 year old man at 83 years of age. His practices have somehow miraculously transformed the biological functioning of his body, which no longer needs energy and sustenance from external material sources.
