Yogananda says: “Just as the life-force is the principal source of energy of the body, so the sun is the vitality of the atmosphere we breathe and of the earth forces—mineral, vitamin-laden vegetables, animals, and human beings. Therefore, all matter and all living creatures depend principally upon immanent cosmic life energy, and sunlight from without. Diseases start when these two great energies fail to enter the system. Hence, one must know the various avenues through which these energies can penetrate the body. Besides, there is a great deal of reaction of life- force on the sunlight. It is the chemically conglomerated force of the sunlight and life-force that helps to support the human body.”
