According to an article by Speaking Tree, Pahlad said that: "Although I walk 100 or 200 kilometres in the jungle, I never sweat and don't feel tired or sleepy, I can meditate for three, eight or 12 hours - or even months."
Mataji grew up in Charada village in Mehsana district. He left his home at the age of seven to live in jungles. When he turned eleven he underwent a religious experience that inclined him to follow Goddess Amba.
Jani has lived in caves near the rainforests of Gujarat. There have been various observational studies on him that concluded shocking results.
Read all of them in the next slide.
Jani's claims were scientifically studied and observed by a team of 30 specialists in a tenure of three weeks. He was put under 24 hour camera surveillance and it was duly observed that he did not take any kind of food or water in the 15 days that he was in hospital.
Let's have a look at what experts said about the study.
Dr. Urman Dhruv, the General Secretary of the Association of Physicians of Ahmedabad, supervised and approved the entire clinical procedures. According to an article, he stated that: "Mr Prahlad Jani did not take anything orally and did not pass urine or stool during these 10 days."
His statements were: "We are all scientifically educated and research orientated doctors. We racked our brains and it was the greatest surprise of our hitherto existing life... As if a bomb had hit us!"
When the results of the study were shown to him, Prof. Dr Anton Luger's response was: "One would expect extremely high levels of uremic waste products. It´s an absolute bombshell!"
"Even magicians were involved to see if any wrong protocols are followed by Jani or not."
This case is still a mystery and no one could solve it.
That's all, people.
