Swamiji and the Discovery of Sunyoga

(Written in november 2000)

Sunyogi Umasankar was born into a Hindu family
in West Bengal, near Calcutta in 1967. Living
next to an ashram throughout his childhood, he
developed an early interest in Yoga and
religion. By the age of eighteen, having spent
a large proportion of his life practicing
Yoga, he made the decision to dedicate part of
his life to walking through every state of
India spreading the message of 'Universal
Unity, Peace and Brotherhood'. Although his
spiritual training is from a Hindu background,
Umasankar-ji's message has always been
directed at people of all religions. His ideas
are based on a religion of humanity that makes
no distinction between colour, race or
religion... a path for all mankind with a
common goal that is unity, peace and

Umasankar-ji's journey through India did not
start until 1997. For two years prior to his
journey Umasankar-ji stayed in Aurobindo
assram in Pondicherry practicing Yoga and
making many important discoveries. The most
important of his discoveries was 'Sunyoga'.
Very little is known about Sunyoga; it is
briefly mentioned in some of the ancient
Indian scriptures, but at the time of
Umasankar-ji's discovery, only one other
person (Hira Ratan Manek) was known to be
practicing it in the modern world. Now, five
years later, there are an estimated 10,000
people throughout India practicing Sunyoga,
taught by Umasankar-ji on his travels.

Pondicherry is on the coast of south east
India, looking over the Bay of Bengal. During
his time at the ashram, Umasankar-ji spent
every morning meditating on a rock looking out
at the sun's reflection off the sea. His daily
meditation upon the reflected sunlight gave
him great pleasure, but at this time he did
not consider it to be a form of Yoga. As he
continued though, Umasankar-ji became aware
that, through this method of meditation, he
was somehow able to absorb powerful energies
from the sun's rays. Umasankar-ji began to
experiment by looking directly at the sun -
initially as it was rising, then day by day he
began to concentrate on it as it rose higher
into the sky. He continued his meditation and
after a couple of months the sun started to
appear as a "clear hazy ring with soft blue
sky inside". The harsh brightness disappeared
and he felt it become increasingly soothing.
As time went on, he started to see "seven
bright colours radiating from the sun, slowly
reaching closer to the ground". Three months
after starting his concentration on the sun,
Umasankar-ji felt these rays - the sun's
cosmic energy - touch his body, creating
within him an undescribable feeling of peace
and calm.

Shortly after this experience, Umasankar-ji
returned to the ashram to eat his usual food,
but he found that he was unable to digest his
simple plate of chapatis. His body rejected
the food, yet he felt that he was fully
nourished. During his three month period of
concentrating on the sun, Umasankar-ji had
developed a great interest in the way that
trees and plants are able to receive energy
directly from sunlight. His discoveries now
made him believe that he had found a way of
absorbing the sun's energy directly into his
body, charging his body's cells with kinetic
energy and therefore removing the need to eat
food. So, as an experiment, Umasankar-ji
stopped eating breakfast and continued
concentrating on the sun. Six months later, he
stopped eating his dinner, then six months
after that, he stopped eating food at all.
From the 17th August until the 7th December
1996, Umasankar-ji stopped eating and sleeping
altogether. His body weight remained the same
and he continued his daily routine working in
the assram in a perfect state of health.
Shortly after this period of his life, he
began his journey through India teaching his
discoveries to people he met along the way.
During his travels, he has become a source of
great interest to a number of scientific and
medical research centres where he had his
claims tested, examined and verified - at
least up to the level of sophistication that
modern scientific instruments are capable of

I have met Umasankar-ji 31,000 km after he
started walking barefoot through India. I have
now witnessed him living with no food, water
or sleep, spending part of each day staring at
the sun as if it was as soft as the moon. On a
number of occasions I have watched him enter
Samadhi (the ultimate state of liberation
attained through Yoga) during meditation, and
I have felt him stop his pulse through sheer
concentration. He does not seem to feel the
cold - he sometimes sits barechested at night
when I am feeling cold wearing thick woolly
clothes and wrapped in a blanket. His
personality is patient, gentle and calm and
his attitude towards others is like that of a
close friend or a brother. He is always true
to his philosophies and all his claims - I
believe - are 100% true.
