HOST: In script-xures, the human body is often referred to as the temple of God. Yet, it is quite an uncommon privilege for any soul to attain this sacred abode that houses the Divine, as it is truly a blessing to be reborn as a human being. On several occasions, Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the rarity of this phenomenon:Supreme Master Ching Hai:
To be reincarnated in the human world is hard. You have to have enough Human Quality. You have to have affinity with the parents and with the society, with the people around which you are born. Very difficult.
To be a human, you need some merit. You have done something good in the past in order to be able to pick a human birth.
HOST: As a living temple of God, the human body is fully equipped with miraculous wonders that can be awakened in those who are spiritually conscious and have complete faith in the Creator of all life.
Inedia, Latin for “fasting,” is the human ability to live without food. Since time immemorial, there have always been individuals who can sustain themselves on prana, or the vital life force. Through the grace of the Providence, inediates, people who follow a food-free lifestyle, can draw the energy from nature to nourish themselves: Supreme Master Ching Hai:
They live on the chi from the ground, or from the forest, and from the sun and from the air. They make use of all that. Or they live on love, on faith alone.
HOST: These individuals are known as breatharians, solarians, waterians, or pranarians, and they come from all walks of life, from different cultures, and all corners of the world.
Indeed, the possibilities and miracles in this life as our benevolent Creator has designed for us are endless; we only need to connect within to recognize our abounding largess as God’s children.
Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly recommended a weekly series on Supreme Master Television to introduce those individuals of the past and present who have chosen to live food-free on Earth.
May their spiritual stories enthrall you; may hearts be opened, and horizons be expanded.
We now invite you to join us for part 1 of our 3-part program, “Akahi: A Breatharian from Ecuador,” on Between Master and Disciples.
HOST: Hallo, happy viewers, welcome to our show on Between Master and Disciples. Today, we travel to the beautiful country of Ecuador in South America to meet breatharian Akahi.
Akahi is a dancer and artist who has found amazing happiness through his food-free lifestyle. Akahi(m):
Before I was a breatharian, my life was happy, too, because I was an artist, I used to travel and I had a happy life. But it was another kind of happiness, it was a different kind of happiness.
It’s a happiness that never was complete.
I feel happy for a moment - never completely happy - so I never can say that I’m really happy at those moments. But now, as a breatharian, you’re conscious that you’re breathing this beautiful love – I call this energy love, too. For me, it’s love.
HOST: How did he evolve to become a breatharian? What was his life like before he embarked on this journey to become food-free? Akahi comes from a hardworking family. He has two brothers and one sister, all of whom were taught from an early age to be independent and self sufficient.
Thus, he was already working as a child. Akahi believes the experience he gained from his upbringing gave him a different perspective on life.But even with the freedom he had, he couldn’t find anything that interested him. Always in the back of his mind, he felt that there must be something more to this physical life. Akahi(m):
I was like waiting for that moment where I can really find my own thing. I thought that there was another way for me, something waiting for me, something that I want to find too, you know.
