Man ‘Survives Without Food’ For 70 Years?!?

Please make up your own mind about this one. Sky News reports via Yahoo:

Indian doctors are studying a remarkable 83-year-old holy man who claims to have spent the last seven decades without food and water. Military medics hope the experiments on Prahlad Jani can help soldiers develop their survival strategies.

The long-haired and bearded yogi is under 24-hour observation by a team of 30 doctors during three weeks of tests at a hospital in the western city of Ahmedabad. Two cameras have been set up in his room, while a mobile camera films him when he goes outside, guaranteeing round-the-clock observation. His body will be scanned and his brain and heart activity measured with electrodes.

“The observation from this study may throw light on human survival without food and water,” said Dr G. Ilavazahagan, who is directing the research. “This may help in working out strategies for survival during natural calamities, extreme stressful conditions and extra-terrestrial explorations like future missions to the Moon and Mars by the human race.”

Since the experiment began on April 22, Jani has neither eaten nor drunk and has not been to the toilet…

    Now this is awesome. I hope that they come to the conclusion that whatever is sustaining him is whatever mystical energy these Yogis believe in. It'd make reality seem that much cooler. This might make me actually wanna have a spiritual practice.

    • andreas

      I have had many tangible mystical experiences and I have no doubt about it being worth while to persue.
      I've learned my practice from a monk in the Ananda Marga Pracaraka Sangha. http://www.anandamarga.net

  • anlek

    bullshit.

  • dumbsaint

    Well the man's stepping up to the plate and being monitored, only fair that we give him a chance to prove his wild claim since he's doing it right.

  • i see you… lol
  • Word Eater

    70 years, eh? The article has him under observation for 7 days so far. Quite a way to go to convince anyone that he's being completely truthful.

    • Elric

      Well considering the longest you can go without water and not die is around 10 days, thats still impressive.

  • justagirl

    those who make it to age 83 find joy in fooling the young people.

  • ES

    When do they celebrate “April Fools'' in India, I wonder?

  • SRINIVASAN

    IT IS A UNBELIABLE MATTER THERE FORE IT IS NOT ONLY INDIAN DOCTORS OTHER COUNTRY
    PEOPLE ALSO TAKE INTEREST TO KNOW THE FACT

  • Alex

    Anyone think the logo on the report looks a little bit like the Onion's?
    Pretty interesting anyway though

    • LFCarvente

      Thats the logo of Al-Jazeera a news station in Qatar

  • ShellsOnTheFloor

    Let's forget about all the rules of human biology, all the stuff that's debatable, and turn to something which isn't – physics.

    This guy IS breathing. For breathing to occur, he has to be expending energy in order to move his chest muscles, pump his heart, et cetera. Where is the energy necessary to do that coming from? Unless this man is suggesting he's photosynthetic, he's claiming to be able to generate free energy, something that the laws of physics most definitely show is not possible.

    There is absolutely no question that this man is a liar, and that the doctors are either not observant enough to catch him at his tricks or that they are complicit in this publicity stunt.

    • Tristan

      ShellsOnTheFloor, the entire concept of someones body producting 'free energy', as it is called, isn't totally fargone. The idea of free energy in the study of Thermodynamics is the amount of energy that could be extracted from any one system. In this case, it would be the man's body, and the energy being taken from it to nourish himself. If he is truly one with his mind and body, it is working on it's own, and therefore could be self-sufficient, because it is using that very same energy to keep him alive. Could it not? Think about it.

  • Gandhi

    Bullshit.
    Why does he go out during the tests?
    There is an easy way to check : give him a nice room, whatever he wants, and plug a PC with a webcam on the internet, 24/24, and record the whole thing.

    Then we can talk.

    • Bubu

      wouldn't that be like a jail … i think he has the rights to go and take a walk..

  • ahmedin

    has not been to the toilet?! i rudely thought he might have survived eating his feces and drinking his urine unseen in the toilet. i am really an idiot fucking shit!

    he's not the only one but most of these people don't make it into mass media

  • David F Mayer

    It is a SPOOF, guys. It is not supposed to be true.

    • RONIN

      Well apparently the BBC News is now reporting on this spoof.
      http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8652837.stm

      • RONIN

        Actually they're not 'now' reporting on it. The report was submitted the same day as the “Sky News” report.

        • dumbsaint

          The study was being done by DRDO, which is a defense contractor. So yeah I don't think they'd be wasting money on a spoof.

          • RONIN

            Yeah, according to the Telegraph their “scientists develop drone aircraft, intercontinental ballistic missiles and new types of bombs.”

            http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/

            This is pretty weird.

            I'll be keeping an eye on this to see what else develops, if anything.

          • dumbsaint

            If he's still going, he's passed the record for going without water which is 14 days. The fact we haven't heard anything means it's probably a wash though.

          • RONIN

            I believe the Telegraph article stated that they'd be stopping at 15 days, so perhaps we'll hear about the results in a day or so.

            Of course, the article also mentioned that back in 03 there was an Indian doctor that observed him going for ten days, and it said something about him expressing doubt due to there being some apparent weight loss at the end.

            I agree most likely a wash, but there's definitely a part of me that wishes I could believe it.

  • Gregory

    I find it fascinating that so many are quick to dismiss this as a hoax. Plenty of “realists” depend on reality conforming to their worldview so when something like this threatens to rip a hole in their reality tunnel it has to be put down as bullshit.

    It's okay, put your head under the covers, maybe the big bad holy man will go away.

    Well people, i am not here to tell you if that claim is true or not but i want to mention few things that people should keep in mind BEFORE posting and BEFORE commenting.

    First, why the poster is sourcing only sky news from 2010 ? This guy is well known, long time ago and there is old news reports all around the web, just google hes name

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/3236118.stm 2003:

    “Prahlad Jani, a holy man, or fakir, who is over 70 years old, has just spent 10 days under constant observation in Sterling Hospital, in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad.
    During that time, he did not consume anything and “neither did he pass urine or stool”, according to the hospital’s deputy superintendent, Dr Dinesh Desai.”
    “To help the doctors verify his claims, Mr Jani agreed to avoid bathing for his time in hospital.
    The only fluid he was allowed was a small amount of water, to use as mouthwash.
    One hundred millilitres of water were given to him, and then collected and measured in a beaker when he spat it out, to make sure none had been drunk.”
    “”He has never fallen ill and can continue to live like this,” said Bhiku Prajapati, one of Mr Jani’s many followers.
    “A hole in the palate is an abnormal phenomenon,” says Dr Desai.

    & yes, the India’s Defense Research and Development Organization is not spending time with a hoxes 2 weeks.

    http://sunlightenment.com/discovery-channel-documentary-on-breatharian-prahlad-jani/
    On June 26, 2006, The Discovery Channel aired a documentary featuring Prahlad Jani – a man who has not eaten food nor water for over 60 years. Dr. Sudhir Shah hypothesized that Prahlad Jani is receiving nourishment from the sun – similar to the sun yogi Hira Ratan Manek.
    For 10 days, Prahlad Jani was observed in strict isolation and by continual video monitoring. His body and health were measured internally and externally by a team of medical doctors and scientists, led by Dr. Sudhir Shah. Dr. Shah has also studied the sun gazing yogi Hira Ratan Manek during his 411 day water fast in 2000-2001.

    This video focuses on Ram Bahadur Bomjon – a boy in Nepal who has been called “The Buddha Boy”. Ram Bahadur Bomjon has also displayed the ability to live for prolonged periods without food or water.

      (for extra for the ones who believe)
      When yogis do Sadhana in pursuit of spritual path, they get shiddhis as by product, with that they can live without food water and much more supernatural powers are at their command following are some of important shiddhis yogis posses:

      1. PARKAYA PRAVESH

      Parkaya Pravesh means entering one’s soul in the body of some other person. Through this knowledge even a dead body can be brought to life.

      Just about three thousand years back, Shankaracharya had to take help of this knowledge in order to defeat Mandan Mishra in a spiritual debate. But as time passed this knowledge became extinct in the society and today only a very few Yogis have full practical knowledge of this unique practice.

      This knowledge is considered to be so important and secret that only a few Yogis, known to me, know of this practice and after them this practice shall perhaps vanish from this earth.

      2. HAADI VIDYA

      This Vidya or knowledge has been mentioned in several ancient texts. On acquiring this Vidya a person neither feels hungry nor thirsty and he can remain without eating food or drinking water for several day at a stretch.

      Several Yogis of the Himalayas, remain engrossed in deep Sadhanas for months and years without eating or drinking anything. When they do not eat or drink, they do not even have to empty their bowels. Thus they are able to perform long penance for years and their bodies also remain healthy and fit, even without food. Acharya Vishnu Sarang, the famous Tantrik from Nepal and Yogi Manohar are proficient in this Vidya.

      3. KAADI VIDYA

      Just as one does not feel hungry or thirsty in Haadi Vidya similarly in Kaadi Vidya a person is not affected by change of seasons i.e. by summer, winter, rain etc. After accomplishing this Vidya a person shall not feel cold even if he sits in the snow laden mountains and shall not feel hot even if he sits in the fire. Thus a Sadhak can perform incessant penance without being affected by change of weather or seasons.

      The Jain scholar, Pragya Sun had accomplished both the Haadi & Kaadi Vldyas. Guru Gorakhnath and Matsayendranath too had accomplished them.

      Today the Jain scholar of Mahabalipuram Sun Maharaj and Yogi Vishambhar of Badrinath are accomplished in these Vidyas and have kept these practices alive.

      4. MADALASA VIDYA

      On accomplishing this Vidya, a person becomes capable of increasing or decreasing the size of his body according to his wish. Lord Hanuman had miniaturised his body through this Vidya while entering the city of Lanka.

      The average height of a human being is six feet. Through this Vidya a person can reduce the size of his body to the size of a mosquito and can even enlarge his body to a size of over hundred feet.

      A few years back a conference of Yogis was held on the Bhairav hill, near Dehradun and in this conference Tailang Baba (an ascetic) demonstrated this miraculous practice before hundreds of Yogis. This Vidya is almost extinct today and in my opinion only Tailang Baba has accomplished it.

      5. VAYU GAMAN SIDDHI

      Through this Siddhi a person can become capable of flying in the skies and travelling from one place to another in just a few seconds. The Jain scriptures speak of Jain ascetics who could fly from place to place in a few seconds. Swami Divakarsuri and Swami Pragyasuri have been such accomplished ascetics.

      About eight years back Vishuddhanandji demonstrated this practice in Varanasi and proved that it is not a myth.

      Today Yogi Chaitanya Swami of Madurai and Yogi Niranjan Swami living near Kanya Kumari are the Yogis who have accomplished this practice. But it seems that this knowledge shall perish with them.

      6. KANAKDHARA SIDDHI

      One can acquire immense and unlimited wealth through this Siddhi. It’s said that once Shankaracharya saw a very poor and destitute woman and with the help of the Kanakdhara Yantra he showered gold in her house. This Yantra is made on a silver plate and 36 squares are formed by drawing 7 lines each, horizontally and vertically. Then the Beej Mantra is written in these squares. Today only a very few people have full and authentic knowledge of this Siddhi.

      7. PRAKYA SADHANA

      Through this Sadhana a Yogi can direct his disciple to take birth from the womb of a woman, who is childless or cannot bear children. Several Yogis have thus blessed inferti1e women with children. Swami Vishuddhanand had accomplished this Sadhana and had used it to bring happiness into the lives of several women. But today only two or three persons are accomplished in this Sadhana.

      8. SURYA VIGYAN

      This Solar science is one of the most significant sciences of ancient India. This science has been known only to the Indian Yogis and using it, one substance can be transformed into another through the medium of sun rays.

      Swami Vishuddhanand had demonstrated the miracles of this science about 50-60 years ago, by transforming a paper into rose and a cotton ball into gold.

      This science has been kept alive by Divyendu Ghosh and some other Yogis, otherwise it has become almost extinct.

      9. MRIT SANJIVANI VIDYA

      This Vidya was created by Adi Shankaracharya. Through it even a dead person can be brought back to life. This practice may seem to be a myth but it had been used by Guru Gorakhnath several times. Today only a few persons have practical knowledge of this Vidya.

      It is but our misfortune that we consider most of our rich heritage to be just myth when in fact through it we can achieve all success, wealth & comforts in our lives. It’s really very shameful that a nation where such unique & distinguished Yogis were born, today, the people of the same nation disbelieve and make fun of their ancestral heritage.

      The golden Vidyas which can elevate a human life both materially and spiritually form an indivisible part of the great personality, famous as Poojya Gurudev Narayan Dutt Shrimali.

      An ordinary person may feel surprised to know how all these Vidyas can be known by a single person, to such levels, that he has even become capable of imparting it to His disciples. But the scholars having some knowledge of these Vidyas know that Poojya Gurudev is in fact a divine personality more famous as Swami Nikhileshwaranand Paramhans before whom all the Yogis bow down in reverence.

      These Vidyas and Siddhis are of very high spiritual level and are not meant to be demonstrated publicly. Today the world is filled with deceit, fraud, violence and greed, hence it has become even more essential to revive and resurrect these divine Vidyas. And to achieve this it also becomes necessary to recognise the true divine form of the personality, who alone is capable of endowing this knowledge on others.

      Such knowledge cannot be acquired through books and neither can it be properly explained through this medium. For this a person shall have to become a disciple and learn these rare practices sitting in the Guru’s feet. One shall have to come close to the Guru and shall have to give up his position, his ego and all arguments.

      I seek the forgiveness of Reverent Gurudev for disclosing this aspect of his personality without his permission. He often says that he does not believe in imparting this knowledge to anyone without testing his faith, devotion and will.

      But seeing these ancient Indian knowledges becoming extinct I could not restrain myself from revealing these facts before the readers. I bow down in reverence before Gurudev’s holy divine form which is a confluence of so many unique and celestial Sadhanas & Siddhis.

      ▶ A story :)

      There is one story in Shri Ramkrishna Param Hans life…
      “Once, a Self-realized Man was standing at the river-shore; waiting for the boat to go across the river. Meanwhile, a Yogi approached him and asked: “Why are you standing here, Sir?” The Holy Man humbly replied: “I am waiting for the boat to take me across the river”. The Yogi sarcastically laughed at him and said: “Don’t you know how to walk on the water?” “No, Sir”, said the Holy Man. “You don’t even know how to walk on the water, what kind of Holy Man are you?”, inquired the Yogi. Before the Holy Man said anything, the Yogi jumped into the river and started walking on the water. To make a big show of his inflated ego, he traversed the river in every direction. Meantime the boat showed up. Before embarking on the boat, the Holy Man asked Yogi as to how long it took him to master this supernatural feat. “Twenty years”, pompously replied the Yogi. The Holy Man asked: “Dear Yogi, tell me how much the boat costs to go cross the river”. “Five pennies”, replied the Yogi. “That means you earned only five pennies in twenty years!” Saying this the Holy Man left!”
      In short I suggest not too get interest in such things but to keep your Body fit for Sadhana and Getting that ultimate goal of reunion with the supreme power. Staying live for many years without food and water may be or may not be possible. But getting that “Sat Chit Anada” is main goal of any soul. It is een through many Santa and seers life that such and many other miraculous acts happened in their life but every one repeated to say that “surrender to Him and do Japa sadhana” with few rules to follow while not leaving your daily and family duties.

The Holy Man asked: “Dear Yogi, tell me how much the boat costs to go cross the river”. “Five pennies”, replied the Yogi. “That means you earned only five pennies in twenty years!” Saying this the Holy Man left!”
    In short I suggest not too get interest in such things but to keep your Body fit for Sadhana and Getting that ultimate goal of reunion with the supreme power. Staying live for many years without food and water may be or may not be possible. But getting that “Sat Chit Anada” is main goal of any soul. It is een through many Santa and seers life that such and many other miraculous acts happened in their life but every one repeated to say that “surrender to Him and do Japa sadhana” with few rules to follow while not leaving your daily and family duties.
