Prahlad Jani Says He Has Lived Without Food or Water for 70 Years

Prahlad Jani, 83, is a Holy Man Who Says He Has Lived Without Food or Water for 70 Years

Update 21 May 2014: Prahlad Jani is featured in the film In the Beginning There Was Light.  Watch the entire film here.

Prahlad Jani, a yogi and holy man living in India is now being studied by doctors round the clock as he claims that he has lived without food or water for the past 70 years.

The way he lives is being looked at by military doctors who want Jani to help them survive better in the wild if he can in fact live without food or water. He is being observed in the city of Ahmedabad according to Sky News, and he is monitored all the time by cameras.

“The observation from this study may throw light on human survival without food and water,” said Dr G. Ilavazahagan, who is directing the research.

The experiment began on April 22 in the hopes of helping people survive in conditions that are extremely stressful or are enclosed for long periods of time such as astronauts going to the moon.

Since April 22, doctors have not recorded Prahlad Jani eating, drinking, or going to the bathroom.

“Jani says he meditates to get energy. Our soldiers will not be able to meditate, but we would still like to find out more about the man and his body.”

What is Prahlad Jani’s secret? He says he was blessed by a goddess when he was eight and she gave him the ability to survive without anything.

Doctors and experts are baffled by an Indian man who claims not to have eaten or drunk anything for 70 years – but is still in perfect health.

A team of scientists and doctors in Sterling Hospital, in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad, are studying the claims of Prahlad Jani, a local holy man, who is over 70 years old.

He claims to have been blessed by a goddess when he was 8-years-old, which has enabled him to survive without sustenance and that he derives energy through meditation.

Most people can live without food for several weeks, with the body drawing on its fat and protein stores. But the average human can survive for only three to four days without water.

Yogi Jani is a yogi.So who we are to comment about
this art of life style. Which if practises by every
body can lead our life to the very peaceful one.
So its better try to understand the system rather than to give unnecessary comments.
