Leonard Orr on Yogi Immortality
Leonard Orr is an author and longevity researcher who claims to have met "immortal" yogis in India who were currently 300, 800, and up to 2,000 years old. He says the thing they all had in common was an intimate relationship with Earth, Air, Fire, and Water in their daily lives. For instance they all bathed twice a day and drank plenty of pure water to maintain the balance of water in the body. They were all vegetarians eating simple mostly raw food diets and spent time "grounding" to balance their earth energy. They all practiced pranayama deep breathing and regular fasting for air purification. And they all performed sun or fire gazing and yogic exercise to vitalize their fire energy.
