the act of staring at the sun to reap tremendous benefits (health, spiritual). the 45 minutes after the sun rises and the 45 minutes before the sun sets the UV rates of the sun is 0. therefore it does not harm the eyes. do some research on it, pretty interesting ancient science. there's a method to it though so be careful.
