SCORES THRONGED the Nehru Stadium in the morning and evening today for that magic healing therapy through sunlight – Siddhamrit Surya Kriya Yoga - demonstrated by Swami Suryendupuri Maharaj.
This special kind of Yoga is done only at the time of dawn and dusk. Swami Suryendupuri said that this Yoga basically aims at supplying direct solar energy to the body that is otherwise obtained from food.
He elaborated that food takes time to digest and energy is required for digestion, too. But Siddhamarit Surya Kriya needs no effort other than to sit in sunlight in certain positions for 20 minutes. This is performed with closed eyes.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Swami Suryendrupuri gave instance of a boy from Ludhiana who was a heart patient and could not be cured by the doctors. Swamiji said that the boy recovered after one week of practicing Siddhamrit Surya Kriya Yoga. He said paralysed persons could also practice this procedure.
Some paralysed people disappointed with other treatments have recovered after attending Surya Kriya sessions, said Swamiji. According to him promotion of this kind of Yoga could be termed as ‘Mission Immortality’.
One of the organisers K Raja Bundela stated that a special Gayatri Mantra is chanted while practicing this Yoga. He also added that Yogis who teach this procedure and practice it regularly survive without food and water for up to seven days at a stretch.
Shweta Lakhotia who was attending the evening session said that this Yoga definitely affects the immune system and activates the brain cells thus removing fatigue and tiredness. Shweta narrated example of a friend who was cured of allergy from sunlight after having practiced Surya Kriya Yoga.
Ravi, another visitor to the Yoga camp, opined that mental capacity improves after practicing Surya Kriya. Many people were attending the Yoga demonstration for second or third time as they felt improvement in their physical fitness.
