Since earliest recorded history humans have worshipped the sun. To them it was the giver of life and therefore became their god. The Sumerians, had many gods, including the sun. To the Egyptians he was the supreme god, Ra, and the pharaoh was his representative on earth. The Greeks called him Helios, who drove a fiery chariot across the heavens, the Romans Apollo, one of their major deities. To the Polynesians he was Maui, and the ancient peoples of South America, the Incas, Aztec and Mayas all worshipped the sun and made human sacrifices to him. The Druids in Britain built Stonehenge in 3000BC in his honour. We may scoff at their naivety, but science has since proved that our Sun is indeed the giver of life to everything on our world.
The much talked about, revived and renewed science of the Sun has already begun to give a new direction to humankind and solve many of the ills of the present day human society. Solutions on all fronts—be it related to physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual diseases. As a matter of fact, we have begun to see the rebirth of a science practiced in ancient times throughout the world.

In different parts of India it is known as Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutations. Similar practice was in Greece, Egypt it was called Heliotherapy, and so too in the Americas—Brazil, Mexico, Peru. The Inca civilization practiced it. INTA means sun. A glaring example is the health resort sun temples in Machu Pichu, Peru. Ancient writings found on this mountaintop describe how to garner energy through the sun. Energy from sun has been used since times immemorial.
We know it is a scientific fact that without sun or its energy nothing will move, every movement of every creature even the various energies electrical, magnetic, wind directly or indirectly sources itself to the sun.These days we rarely use the sun energy willingly as we are scared of the solar radiation and treat it like the enemy.
Many human crises occur due to lack of use of sun energy. To start with increased mental tension and worries, lack of self-confidence, and negative thinking. Also fear, anger, irritation, greed, hostility and lack of compassion. All these are ailments of the mind.
Can we overcome all these setbacks easily? Can the present human kind—each and every one of us, become a good-natured person contributing to world peace?
After the psychosomatic disorders come physical diseases and then lastly spiritual ignorance. We can ourselves hardly liberate us from these problems and diseases. As we age we have the onset of geriatric diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The biggest setback we have encountered is of poor immunity. We have very low or no energy to tackle day-to-day living. We can overcome all this by taking sun energy. It is an established fact that total health includes; mental, physical and spiritual wellness.
We have a super computer in our bodies given to us by nature. Our brain. The brain is more powerful than the most advanced super computer. Each and every human being is gifted with innumerable talents, and infinite inherent powers by nature. Individuals should never underestimate themselves. Everyone is gifted. If we make use of these powers we can take ourselves to great levels. Unfortunately these infinite inherent powers are programmed in that part of the brain that is largely dormant and goes unused. Even medical science agrees we hardly make use of the brain but about 5-7% – the most brilliant of humans like Albert Einstein is reported to have used only about 32% of his brain.
If we can activate the human brain and awaken these infinite powers stored in us then we can raise ourselves to higher levels. We can achieve any results we want. In order to operate the brain effectively it needs to be activated. Being a holistic entity it needs a holistic power supply. Sun energy is the source that powers the brain. Sun energy can enter and leave the human body or the brain only through one organ and that is the human eye. Eye is the Sun Energy’s entry door to the human brain. Eyes are also known as the window of the soul. Recent research has found out that the eye has many more functions than that of vision. And more information is continuing to be revealed about the functions of the eye. The eyes are a complex organ and they have 5 billion parts much more than a spacecraft that has about 6-7 million parts. See the immense capacity of the human eye!!
Eye can receive the entire spectrum of the sunlight. It’s like having a glass window. Eye is the perfect instrument to receive all the colors of the rainbow.
Since eyes are a delicate part of the body we have to use it in such a way that our purposes are served as well as that it doesn’t get damaged. Present day teachings and ideas such as don’t look at the sunlight at all—you will damage your eyesight; never go out in the sun as you will get cancer, is causing needless hysteria and paranoia. The more you are away from nature the more there is cause for illness and you will automatically support global corporations. There are definite foolproof ways of getting from nature the benefits it has to offer not exposing ourselves to its adverse effects.
Sun gazing is a one-time practice of your lifetime. Look at the rising or setting sun-one time per day. First day look for a maximum of 10 seconds. Second day look for 20 seconds at the rising sun adding ten seconds every succeeding day. So at the end of 10 continuous days of sun gazing you will be looking at the sun for 100 seconds i.e. 1 minute and 40 seconds. Stand on bare earth with bare foot. Eyes can blink and/or flicker. Stillness or Steadiness of the eyes is not required.
Mental depression will go away. Psychiatrists are observing that SAD is caused by lack of sunlight. With the practice of sun gazing—not only in winter but you will not have depression in your whole lifetime. We will achieve a perfect balance of mind. Fear of death goes away. No worries. Everyone has some sort of mental disorder. This is our biggest human crisis, thinking. Sunlight definitely removes mental diseases.
Next, Physical diseases will start being cured. 70 to 80% of the energy synthesized from food is taken by the brain and is used up in fueling tensions and worries. With a lack of mental tension, brain does not require the same amount of energy as before. As you proceed in sun gazing and as your tensions decrease food intake goes down.
Brain regulates the flow of color prana appropriately to the respective organs. All the internal organs get ample supply of the required color prana. The vital organs are dependent on certain sun color prana. Kidney red, Heart yellow, Liver green etc. Colors reach the organs and address any deficiencies.
A consensus statement by seven leading health groups and charities recommends 10 to 15 minutes of bare skin exposure three times a week in the summer.
Preferably, surrendering your body to the sun should take place at midday, say the experts. Before 10 am is a good time.
The consensus statement represents the views of the British Association of Dermatologists, Cancer Research UK, Diabetes UK, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the National Heart Forum, the National Osteoporosis Society and the Primary Care Dermatology Society.
Key to the advice is striking a balance between adequate vitamin D levels for healthy bones and avoiding skin cancer.
Vitamin D can be obtained from diet but is primarily manufactured in the skin by a process that involves ultraviolet B rays from the sun. Too little vitamin D can lead to rickets in children and brittle bones in adults.
Photosynthesis does not mean you need chlorophyll. This concept also we very wrongly understand. Only the plant kingdom needs chlorophyll. Human body can do it with a different medium. Photosynthesis is transforming the sun energy into an usable energy form. This is how Photovoltaic cells work and electricity is produced, similarly water is heated, food is cooked in solar cooker, and solar batteries run automobiles.
Eyes receive the entire spectrum of the sunlight. And the Brain distributes it to the different parts of the body on a need per basis. And one is cured of all diseases. A 3rd intermediate medium is avoided. You are your own master within 6 months.
