PostSubject: SUNGAZING: HEALTH FROM THE SUN - Hira Ratan Manek   Sun Feb 22, 2015 12:31 pm

Hira Ratan Manek was born in 1937 in Bodhavad, India, and was raised in Calicut, Kerala, India, where he was educated as a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Kerala. Upon graduation, he joined the family shipping and spice trading business where he worked until his retirement in 1992. After he retired he began to seriously research the ancient practice of sungazing in which he had been interested since childhood.

This was an old, nearly forgotten procedure which had been practiced in ancient times in many different parts of the world. During his study, he was inspired from the teachings of Lord Mahavir of the Jains and from ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Native Americans. HRM spent years researching the sungazing practices of many different cultures and has formulated a protocol that is safe and effective.

When he reached a certain point in his sungazing practice, HRM noticed that he lost the desire for food. Since June 18th, 1995, HRM has and continues to live only on sun energy and water. Occasionally, for hospitality and social purposes, he drinks tea, coffee and buttermilk. And on a few occasions due to a busy schedule or lack of sunlight, he has eaten food. Until now, he had three strict fastings, during which he had just sun energy and only water and was under the control and observation of various science and medical teams.

The first of these fasting lasted for 211 days during 1995-96 in Calicut, India directed by Dr. C.K. Ramachandran, a medical expert on allopathy and ayurvedic medicine. This was followed by a 411 day fast from 2000-2001 in Ahmedabad, India directed by an International team of 21 medical doctors and scientists led by Dr. Sudhir Shah and Dr. K. K. Shah, the acting President of Indian Medical Association at that time. Dr. Maurie D. Pressman, MD also joined the team for the next observation on HRM.

After the excitement of the findings at Ahmadabad, HRM was invited to Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine where he underwent 130 days of observation in 2002. This Medical Team wanted to examine his retina, pineal gland, and brain.They assembled an observation team led by Dr. Andrew B. Newberg, a leading authority on the brain, and by Dr. George C. Brenard, the leading authority on the pineal gland. Initial results found that the gray cells in HRM's brain are regenerating.

700 photographs have been taken where the neurons were found to be actively reconnecting. Furthermore, his pineal gland was expanding, not shrinking as is typical in older adults. Its average size is about 6 x 6 mm; however for HRM, it has been measured to be at 8 x 11 mm based on MRIs. Thus, the team thought that growth and reactivation of the pineal gland may play a role in converting sunlight to a form of energy which is usable by the body.

Since 2002 Hira Ratan Manek has given thousands of lecture in dozens of countries, has made presentations to government agencies of many countries, and has helped established solar healing organizations in seven countries. One of them, the International Solar Healing Association of Switzerland, is recognized by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations. One of its goals is to present sungazing as a means of combating the spread of AIDS.

Over 400 newspapers around the world have published articles on him. Many television channels have broadcast stories about him including major interviews by BBC World Services and ZTV in India, both of which have been rebroadcast many times. Other media groups have reported on HRM including some from Europe, Russia, South America, Japan, and the Middle East.



Sungazing is a method you can use to improve or maintain a good health. It has been practiced for centuries and it was recently (re)discovered by Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) from India.

With the help of the sun it is possible to solve emotional, physical and spiritual problems. For some, there is also the possibility to live without food and solely use the sun as a source of energy. Some call this the ‘HRM’-phenomenon, for HRM hasn’t used any solid foods since 1995. This fact has been examined and confirmed by an international team of doctors and scientists and the NASA.

Yet the purpose of this method is not to stop eating, but to live a mentally, physically and spiritual healthy life. The sun, therefore, is a powerful help.
For those wanting to do sungazing, make sun charged water or do sunbathing, we’ve gathered some hopefully useful information on the subject. Some people may need to change the method for themselves because of better or weakened health, but it is up to you to see what you need.

It is your own responsibility to choose whether sungazing is something for you or not and which method is good for you to practice. If you have questions, remarques or information regarding this decision or which method to use, you can email HRM at
The method as described below was gathered from a lot of pieces of information, coming directly or indirectly from HRM. His information is based on his own experience and that of thousands of other sun gazers throughout history. His own way of life is a clear and scientific proof of the value of his method. HRM is born in 1936, but he’s still in a very good health. His brain, glands and organs are as healthy as can be. Scientific reports on his personal health can be found on

Books advised are ‘Licht. Medicine of the future of Jacob Liberman and ‘The healing Sun’ from Richard Hobday.

We wish you good luck at the special occasions which the sun is offering you to experience a pleasant way and powerful technique for the improvement of your health. Enjoy!!

1. Walk barefoot on bare earth for 45 minutes , every day, for the rest of your life. This connection with nature is necessary to enjoy the full benefits of sungazing. Do it whenever you can.

2. Find out the times of sunrise and sunset. They change every day a few minutes. (See the table at the back for the times in Belgium).

3. Calculate the safe hours for sungazing: from sunrise until one hour later is safe and also the last hour before sunset. Beginners should never watch outside of these times. Others can consider the fact that sungazing is safe whenever the UV-index is below 2.

4. If possible, stand on the naked earth with bare feet. This protects the eyes. Warm earth is better than cold. If you cannot find any naked earth, then try mud, stone or concrete. The further in the list, the less protection the surface offers. Avoid standing on grass or in water. If you cannot stand, then sit. Standing straight with a straight back is the best. Sand is better than heavy earth. Dry, sandy beaches are perfect.

5. It is important to look relaxed at the sun. Blink your eyes as you normally do. Don’t pay much attention to this. Watch the sun as you would watch TV. Don’t use any glasses. Lenses are fine because they are part of the eye.

6. Start with 10 seconds at the most. Heighten this amount every day with maximum 10 seconds. On a partly clouded day, you can repeat the time of the last sunny day. For example: yesterday was a Sunny day and you’ve watched for 2 minutes. Today there are some clouds, so you go for 2 minutes again. Tomorrow is sunny so you add 10 seconds and watch 2 minutes and 10 seconds.

7. It is easy to have a timer with a memory. Most digital kitchen alarms serve this purpose. Also on some digital watches you can find this function.

8. If you have practiced this method for 3 months without interruption (or 90 days), then you are sungazing 15 minutes. This solves all mental problems. If you continue to 30 minutes (180 days), then your physical complaints will disappear. And if you continue to 45 minutes (270 days), you will solve all spiritual questions and then you will become completely healthy. After this, you need to stabilize the results by walking barefoot or further sungazing.

 When following the HRM-method you can have excellent results in improving your health and feeling of well-being. But whenever you try to make shortcuts by going too fast, not walking barefoot, not standing on bare earth or other tricks, then most certainly the benefits will be less. HRM says: ”The benefits are delayed, but not denied’.

 Splitting of or catching up on the time: it is ok to, for example, look the half of the time in the morning and the other half in the evening. If you want to look that day ten seconds more than the day before, then you might add five seconds in the morning and five in the evening. It is also possible to watch two times on a day when you haven’t been able to sungaze the day before. In that case, you watch the sun in the morning for as much time as you would have done yesterday and in the evening you add maximum ten seconds. Whenever you cannot watch the sun on a particular day, nothing really bad happens, but the benefits will be delayed. It is not necessary to add 10 seconds every day, you can decide to go slower and add less seconds (5 or so). It is better not to go faster and add more than 10 seconds to give your brain and eyes the time to adapt.

 If you use a timer, then let it be programmed on the time you sun gazed the last. For example: if you have been watching the sun for two minutes and ten seconds, you leave the timer like that and the next day you add ten seconds. That way you don’t need to remember the time yourself. You can use the timer as to be your personal ‘sungazing-timer’, which you use for nothing else.

 Sunglasses cannot be used for sungazing. They block away the life-necessary UV-light. They should only be used (daily) in case of serious eye problems or for the protection of the eyes against light that is to strong like when the UV-index is too high, or light reflected on snow or seawater. Remember to avoid sunglasses as much as possible (also you can read the book of Jacob Liberman on the subject).

 Drinking water before or after sungazing helps detoxifying. It also helps to go stand near a healthy tree with a large trunk (on a moment it has leaves).

 When it is too cold to get outside, then watch the sun from inside through the window (open or closed). You can be barefooted if you want, but keep yourself warm. Sungazing from inside is not as effective as from outside, but it gives benefits. People living in a cold climate might go to a warmer climate for the time they practice the method.

 It is also possible to watch the sun in the reflection in clear water or glass. This does not damage the eye. People living between high mountains or houses might find this handy. The midday sun is the most suitable to watch the reflection in water. You can put a bucket of water outside in such way that you see the sun in it. Don’t use the reflections in snow, dirty water or seawater. These are not healthy. Most clear glass windows are fine.

 In winter it is sometimes safe to sungaze during the whole day. There is no danger when the UV-index is below 2, but you should always check if the light is not too strong for you. If you are not sure, then do not gaze or use a UV-meter to check the theoretical safety.

 There are methods to make sungazing easier if the sun is too bright for you. You can use pinhole spectacles or look through a white piece of textile, the clouds, the leaves or branches of trees, and so on. You can also look with half-open eyes. But don’t do any of these things when the UV-index is more than two. Even clouds do not filter the UV-rays enough to be safe. Looking with closed eyes is always safe. All these methods slow down the benefits, but sometimes it is better to go slow than to take a risk and hurt yourself.

 The inner images that you see after sungazing are perfectly normal. It is the best to close the eyes and observe them until they are gone. Mostly, they are gone within a few minutes. Sometimes they stay longer, even for one or two days.

 If you experience things like a glowing face, tears, prickling eyes, sneezing, the eyes closing automatically, tension round the eyes, or other things, this is not a serious problem, but you should be careful. Check the UV-index and your experiences. If it doesn’t feel good what you do, then stop watching, use a softening technique (watching with closed eyes for example), watch a shorter time, wait till the light is softer or maybe don’t add any seconds for a few days to stabilize the effects. Tears clean the eyes. Ask HRM for advice whenever necessary.

 If you live in an apartment in the city and it is possible to look at the sun in the safe hours from there, you can fill a box with sea sand to go stand in when you watch the sun. This gives less benefit than being outside on the naked earth, but the benefits will certainly come. It might just take a little longer.

 When you have reached 44 minutes, then stop sungazing. You have reached the second phase of the technique. Now, for one year you have to walk barefoot on bare earth for 45 minutes every day. This is to stabilize the energy. You change your body into a ‘solar chip’. Your feet might hurt a little in the beginning, but they will get used to it. As HRM says: ‘When the mind accepts, the body adapts’. And if the body adapts, then the mind accepts. An alternative technique is to start counting down: every day you watch the sun one minute less: 43,42, 41, … minutes. Proceed until 15 minutes. This method is for people who cannot walk barefoot on bare earth every day. Ask HRM’s advice.

 When you stop sungazing, the body gets uncharged within six days. Barefoot walking stops this. The best time to walk is when the earth is warm en there is sunlight on the body.

 After the first phase of the technique it is advisable to contact HRM and ask if there are some other things you might do. Sometimes additional methods or information is needed to preserve the results.

 The results of sungazing can be strengthened by the correct use of sun charged water, sunbathing or palming. See below for more information on this.

 It is possible to stop sungazing before you reach 44 minutes and still have benefits that last. But therefore you definitely have to stabilize the energy by watching the sun for one year longer (every day the same length of time as to where you’ve come) or walk barefooted on bare earth for 45 minutes every day. Without such grounding, the benefits will slowly go away. When the grounding is strong enough, the benefits can be kept up by coming in the sunlight for a few minutes every day, but the need for a systematic approach then is gone. The HRM-method, when practiced properly, only needs to be done once in a lifetime!

 Blind people cannot do sungazing by this method.

 Sometimes, the method does not bring benefits. Then usually it is not the method that doesn’t work, but it hasn’t been practiced properly. Sometimes people subconsciously sabotage themselves or don’t want the benefits. Obviously, then they will not come or only slow. Sometimes people ignore the fact that they don’t follow HRM’s advice on some points like being barefooted or relaxed. But in such cases, it is not HRM who is to blame, but the practitioner of the method. Please be careful and attentive. Ask for advice and don’t take any risks. The practicing of this method is your responsibility alone. The more you listen to your body and the better you follow the method, the more benefits you will get. Don’t try to be hasty or break the laws of nature.
