Isn’t it amazing that a simple method of sun-gazing (during safe hours) can restore balance and harmony in the mind, body and spirit! There are many proponents of this ancient spiritual technique like the Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetan and Indian yoga, who considered the sun as the divine source of energy that heals numerous ailments.
If you haven’t heard of Sun-gazing before, it means gazing at the sun during the safe hours i.e within first hour after sunrise or the last hour before sunset when the sun’s rays are most gentle, UV is zero or very less, therefore it doesn’t damage the eyes. It is done barefoot thereby taking in the earth’s energy as well.
Generally people reckon that gazing at the sun can cause serious damage to your retina., etc., but if sun-gazing is done in the right manner (more about it below), then it can have unbelievable results, in fact it improves your eye-sight.
