I DO NOT BELIEVE or ACCEPT anyone's claim to stare at the full sun at high noon! That would burn out the eyes.

Sun gazing must be done in increments beginning with the sun at its lowest ebb adding ten seconds each day and eventually ending when the sun leaves the horizon. To stare at the full sun after it is above the horizon is bloody dangerous to one's eyesight. One would damage the eyes, even to the extent of blindness.

You must then do the practice consistently if choosing to make this part of your lifestyle.

Stare peripherally!!!

I actually gazed at the sun but not directly but peripherally to the left and right meditatively staring at a tree or something your eyes if brown will absorb and change color (light brown). It's like drinking carrot juice and changing your skin tone it goes away after awhile. Its a good asset for the ladies though. Don't do it often I reccommnd . no real benefits maybe. twice a month.

Living in the damp ever changing climate in western Canada, sun gazing is a dream. So on better days I do it with eyes closed, directed at the sun. Even that can be, in the winter time, quite elusive.

However, there is a fabulous practice called meditation on the Inner Sun. Need one say more ? It is forever, not temporary and finite.

Problem solved. Namaste... Om

It is true that sun gazing may damage your eyes, IF YOU DO IT DURING UNSAFE TIMES. If you do it during safe times, unless you are on the equator or that one place in Africa with no ozone lair, It is literally impossible for you to damage your eyes, unless you looked at it through a magnifying glass...Do some research before saying things like this.

I have been sungazing for close on three years. I do not follow any "ritual" such as standing on bare soil or counting the seconds and minutes because I do not think that this will really make a difference; if anything it gets in the way of surrendering to the process.

My special procedure involves placing myself in such a way that I have the foliage of a tree between myself and the sun; using a gentle swaying motion I can control the amount of light that hits the eye.

Occasionally I gaze at the sun (I live in a subtropical area) at noon time for a up to a minute at a time and can only say that the alleged dangers of doing this are nothing but hysterical hype, coming from people who have never done any kind of any sun gazing.

Namaste

Yes, it can be damaging if you don't know how to do it properly. If you even just google it you will see that your only to do it at sunrise or sunset, preferably sunrise between 4am and 6am and no longer than 10min. Some do it in 3min increments and like everything else you must work up to it very slowly. So yes caution is necessary. Please research before trying, best of luck

You will not go blind sungazing. Geesh! If you can watch TV for 3 hours, surely you can see look into the sun. This is an ancient practice, and if you do ALL your homework before committing to the 9 months it takes to get to 44 minutes, then you know that there are guidelines to go by. Eye can receive the entire spectrum of sunlight. The rising and setting sun has minimal to zero UV rays. It is important for anyone who is looking into this SAFE practice to do their research first, because if you don't, then it is no longer considered a safe practice because you are not following the correct way. Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) is the best source to look at. He has several university studies behind him. I have been sungazing for about 2-3 months, and I am at 11 minutes, just about to finishing the 1st (of 3) stages, which allows the sun's energy or the sunrays passing through the human eye to charge the hypothalamus tract, which is the pathway behind the retina leading to the human brain.

Stage 2 (15- 30 minutes), mental depression will go away, It is possible to achieve a perfect balance of mind. Physical diseases will start being cured as well. 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.

When you reach 30 - 44 minutes duration of continuously looking at sun you will slowly be liberated from physical diseases since by now all the colors of the sun reach the brain through the eye. 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.

I have been sun gazing for four years now, and have learned from a couple prominent sun gazers, one being scientist Vinny Pinto. I write you because of one poster's admonition that sun gazing at clouds is safer than looking straight at the sun. This is not accurate.

Clouds cause a glare, that can actually be harmful. Doing so for short periods of time on occasion is okay, but not often. The best time is early in the day, or later in the day, looking at the sun directly. I sun gaze at all hours with full sun exposure, with no problem, as do many sun gazers I know. This however is not suggested for beginners, who should only sun gaze early, or later in the day. The thing is you must be barefoot on actual soil, and after gazing, continue to stand on bare earth for at least 10 minutes to ground the energy. This last part is very important. No corrective lenses should be in use at the time of gazing. Starting at one half minute, and working up a half minute a day is ideal. So, first day one half minute, second day one minute, etc. As your eyes adjust, eventually you can do it for long periods of time. I can do it for twenty minutes a day now. My lens prescription improved by a couple numbers doing this practice. Do expect there will be a blinding effect for up to an hour afterward, but this effect lessens, the longer one sun gazes. I highly suggest thoroughly reading Vinny Pinto's suggestions before gazing which can be found near the bottom of this page: http://www.rawpaleodiet.org/sungazing/
