Ли Цинъюнь. 256 лет. Самый старый человек в мире. Li Ching-Yuen
.Hello, my friends! My name is Shamov Dmitriy..It so happened that my channel from the beginning carries educationally entertaining purposes..You can not only laugh or feel sad, but also learn something new watching my videos..I was always interested in unusual people: different scientists, phylosophers, inventors or people who made something unbelievable..I often read biographies, diaries so I came up with an idea to tell you about some interisting people..Today I will tell you about the man who lived for 256 years. Maybe some of you already know about him, but it will be interesting for those who do not ..This long-liver`s name is Li Ching-Yuen, he was born in China and lived for 256 years..He was born in Chicziansian, province Sichuan in 1677..To understand his date of birth it is enough to remember The Emperor of Russia Peter the First, who was born 5 years earlier then Li..The longest part of his life he spent in the mountains, where for the first 100 years he was collecting herbs..Some say that at the age of ten he mastered a lot ofsciences and started to travel across China..He spend long time in Tibet..Then he visited Vietnam and Thailand, where he learned the secrests of many herbs and their effects on the body..In the age of 71, in 1749, Li Ching-Yuen became the tearcher of martial arts and advisor in tactics of Chinese army..It is known that he used breathing technics qigong and also drinked infusions of herbs, the recipes of which are compeletely lost..According to the story, Li studied qigong in mountains with 500 year-old hermit, when he was 130 years old..It seems like the part of science fiction book..Those who so him told that he was over 2 meters high, long nails, ruddy faced, always cheerful, but still an old man..In 1928, one of The New York Times journalists visited the places where Li lived and interviewed local people..They told, that Li Ching-Yuen never changed outwardly and was familiar with their ancestors which are long dead..On the question about the secret of long-living Li answered:.”Calm your heart down, sit like a turtle, walk pertly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.”.I think in the modern world where everybody is in rush or doesn`t sleep because of job or internet, these rules are hardly can be followed..In 1972 Li Ching-Yuen was in invited to Ansyan by governor of Sichuan, general Yan Sen..He was very impressed by Li`s youthfullness, strength and skills compared with his unbelievable age..During this visit the famous photo of the long-liver was made, which you can see on the screen..After this meeting Li returned to his birthplace and 6 years later died..There is a legend, which says that before death li told his friends that he has done everything in this world and he is returning home now..And after these words he died. But some say that he just from the natural reasons..Li Ching-Yuen had 24 wifes. He overlived 23 of them and 24th became a widow..Also he had 180 children..Li was telling that he was 197 years, but official documents state that he was 250..Why is this difference happened?.Scientists think that he lived for so long that forgot when he was born..In 1930 there where found documents with official greetings: for 1827 with150 years and for 1877 with 200 years..It is hard to believe that it is possible to live for that long, but there are alot of documents proving that..And still it is not clear did Chinese herbalist live for that long or not..Anyway, health care must be taken and the good sleep is better than any medicine..I hope it was interesting for you to know about this man..Say what you think about that in a comments below..If you enjoyed this video next time i will tell you about someone who is no less interesting..don`t forget to subscribe and put thumbs up! See you in the future videos, goodbye!
