This program discusses the possibility of breatharianism, or living without eating food, and is not a full instruction. For your safety, please do not attempt to cease eating without proper expert guidance.
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 series, “Camila and Akahi: Expectant Breatharian Parents,” on Between Master and Disciples.
“Breatharianism is Physical Perfection. Man came into physical existence a Perfected Breatharian. God breathed into his nostrils the Breath of Life, and man became a living entity. (Gen. 2:7) Nothing was lacking, and nothing more was needed.”
HOST: In his book, “Man’s Higher Consciousness,” Professor Hilton Hotema asserted that human beings were originally breatharians: we did not need food to survive. In fact, he believed that the composition of the human body substantiates the food-free origin of the human race.
“The human body is a mass of trillions of cells, guided by the Infinite Intelligence. Each cell is a mass of millions of atoms, each of which is a miniature solar system, with “planets” in the form of tiny electrons whirling at tremendous speed around a common center of attraction.
The solar system has no use for food…. Electrons do not eat, atoms do not eat, molecules do not eat, cells do not eat, and the body is built of and sustained by the cells, and not what man eats.”
HOST: In the course of human evolution, we have taken up the habit of eating: “Modern Man is the degenerate descendant of the Breatharian. During the millions of years that man has inhabited the earth, his environment and the many habits he has formed have forced his body to adapt itself…to many evil conditions
and harmful substances in order to survive, all of which are foreign to the body and injurious in character.”
HOST: Enlightened Masters of the past had also mentioned the glorious, food-free origin of humankind, such as the story the Buddha told about a race of virtuous people from the Quan Yin planet who descended to Earth.
They lived only on divine nourishment and were the original ancestors of humankind. On a few occasions, Supreme Master Ching Hai had also shared the original nourishment of humankind:Supreme Master Ching Hai:
You see, in the beginning,when men first appeared on this planet,they did not needto eat anything,and they lived in glory. Light and heavenly Music,those were their food - Heavenly Music, yes - and they lived for a long time.
HOST: Currently, there are many individuals all over the world who have proven that humankind, indeed, can live without the need for physical food. And that raises the question: is it possible for children to live healthy and food-free lives? In fact, is it even within the realm of possibility for breatharians to bear children without relying on physical food for the necessary nutrition?
