Bruce Lee, heard of him? He was not a yogi, okay? He gave a demo. So a journalist came and asked him – he was still not yet so famous in Hollywood, he had just come to Hollywood and talks were going on because he gave some demonstrations, and he was almost super-human. So talks were going on, a journalist came to interview him. And he asked him, “Okay people are talking about all this, give me a demonstration about your power.”
So Bruce Lee made him stand here, he was at a swimming pool. The swimming pool was nine feet away. He was standing here, the swimming pool edge is nine feet away. He said, “You just stand here,” and he kept his fist just three inches away from the journalist’s body and ‘hoo’! The man went and fell in the pool. A 185 pound man went and fell in the pool with a three inch punch. Just that’s all. No like this [hard punch], just. That’s all. Because you’re using the Manipuraka – hoo! The man will just fly.
Manipuraka could be mobile, but that’s not a good thing to do
Manipuraka could be mobile, but that’s not a good thing to do. Some of the people, who are into certain type of martial arts, are making their Manipuraka mobile to demonstrate certain things. That is not good at all. Once you learn to move your Manipuraka in a certain way, that too to do demos and stuff, such a person will not live long.
So I’m not saying this only with this relation, because anyway he’s dead, that’s easy to say. Not in that context. Innocently they have shown these things in some of the things. There are yogis who move their Manipuraka and do things. Such people never physically move. They sit in the same place. Once your maintenance centre is moved around, you don’t move your physical body, you sit in the same place, always. I think in some of these martial arts movies, innocently, not knowing what it is, they have shown this. Some old people are sitting, somebody falls down but they’re always sitting. Have you seen this? Because one who moves his Manipuraka should not move his body. If he moves his body around, he will not last long. He has to go!
