A wandering holy man from India named Prahlad Jani, also known as Mataji, believed he is sustained by Hindu Goddess Amba, who poured “nectar” through a hole in his palate.
At the age of 7, he left his home and underwent a religious experience. He lives in the jungle as a hermit where he spend most of his days meditating.
In 2010, this 85-year-old man was held in isolation at Sterling Hospital in the western Indian City of Ahmedabad and was closely monitored by Indian Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS) for 15 days without eating or drinking a single drop of water. The doctors were left baffled and surprised by the results because the Indian Yogi didn’t pass no urine or stool during his stay.
The team of scientists who observed Mataji believed that his body may have went through a biological or genetic transformation as a result of his spiritual practices.
