Sun gazing is the action to stand bare footed on bare earth and gaze at the sun without protection at particular time of the day. This practice is supposed to charge you in Chi. Sungazing must be practiced within ten minutes after sunrise or within a few minutes just before sunset. Sungazing is a one-time practice of your lifetime usually for a period of 9 months. You can break up the practice in three phases. 0 to 3months, 3-6 months and 6- 9months. You have to walk barefoot for 45 minutes for the rest of your life. You should not practice sun gaze outside of the aforementioned time frame. Sungazing was brought to the west by Hira Ratan Manek a spiritual teacher from India who did research in the ancient art of sun gazing.
