Sungazing and Phosphenism


In India today, an initiatory exercise coming from the dawn of time is still practiced. It has been kept secret for a long time and was passed on from the Masters to their Disciples, it has reemerged in the 21st century and seems to attract many people, thanks to its simplicity and its efficiency. A simple search on the Internet on the subject can show how popular this practice has become.

This method is called sungazing, i.e. Focusing on the sun. This practice, kept up to date by Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) since 1992, allows the stimulation of the brain thanks to the energy of the light of the sun. The sungazers, who focus on the rising or setting sun, obtain various benefits: health, serenity, well-being, develoment of spiritual abilities. All these benefits are presented by Dr Lefebure in his scientific practice of Phosphensim: more than ten years before HRM, he already described exercises that consist in focusing on the sun…

This ancient practice was reseved to the initiates. HRM rediscovered it in the works of ancient yogis who practiced focusing on the sun 2,600 years ago. This practice also existed in the Ameridian, Egyptian or Greek culture, a fact that Dr Lefebure had noticed.

Doctor Lefebure is the creator of Phosphenism, a method that allows the transformation of the energy of light into mental energy. Doctor Lefebure based his works on a long esoteric tradition, but his genius consists in understanding initiatory phenomena in a scientific manner. Himself an initiate of Galip’s sensory way, a Zoroastrian, Ukrainian diplomat, he strived to find a scientific way to measure precisely what was relevant in intiatory exercises. This allowed him to design very precise exercises, after getting rid of all that belonged to religious or esoteric folklore.
