The following is an excerpt from the Giri Bala interview as
recorded in "Autobiography of a Yogi."

Enjoy !!!

=======

"Tell me, Mother, from your own lips -- do you live without
food?" "That is true." She was silent for a few moments; her
next remark showed that she had been struggling with mental
arithmetic. "From the age of twelve years four months down to
my present age of sixty-eight -- a period of over fifty-six
years -- I have not eaten food or taken liquids."

"Are you never tempted to eat?"

"If I felt a craving for food, I would have to eat." Simply
yet regally she stated this axiomatic truth, one known too
well by a world revolving around three meals a day!

"But you do eat something!" My tone held a note of
remonstrance.

"Of course!" She smiled in swift understanding.

"Your nourishment derives from the finer energies of the air
and sunlight, and from the cosmic power which recharges your
body through the medulla oblongata."

"I have never had any children; many years ago I became a
widow. I sleep very little, as sleep and waking are the same
to me. I meditate at night, attending to my domestic duties in
the daytime. I slightly feel the change in climate from season
to season. I have never been sick or experienced any disease.
I feel only slight pain when accidentally injured. I have no
bodily excretions. I can control my heart and breathing. I
often see my guru as well as other great souls, in vision."

* * *

"Mother," I asked, "why don't you teach others the method of
living without food?"

My ambitious hopes for the world's starving millions were
nipped in the bud.

"No." She shook her head. "I was strictly commanded by my guru
not to divulge the secret. It is not his wish to tamper with
God's drama of creation. The farmers would not thank me if I
taught many people to live without eating! The luscious fruits
would lie uselessly on the ground. It appears that misery,
starvation, and disease are whips of our karma which
ultimately drive us to seek the true meaning of life."

"Mother," I said slowly, "what is the use of your having been
singled out to live without eating?"

"To prove that man is Spirit." Her face lit with wisdom. "To
demonstrate that by divine advancement he can gradually learn
to live by the Eternal Light and not by food."

Thanks John, very inspirational. I like the idea of it all being so simple. Just total faith, trust and kowing that God's Light nourishes us once we let go of all limitations.

I found this quote interesting, as last week I was doing a meditation in which I perceived my room as if I were in a dream.

Once I transfer to inedia, I expect this dreamlike perception to be permanent. At that point, sleep will be irrelevant, and it is unlikely I will sleep at all. Why would I sleep when my waking state is a dream?

This is the highest reason I have heard to the question of why.
