The Hindu, who enjoys hours of yoga daily, is applying to the Guinness Book of World Records to be recognised as the world’s oldest person
THIS Indian monk who is 120-years-old says NOT having sex has kept him alive so long.
Swami Sivananda, who was born on August 8, 1896 according to his passport, has abstained from sexual intercourse his whole life.
Sivananda, who has become a celebrity in India, lives with no help or medical aid, performing yoga every day
The Hindu is now applying to the Guinness Book of World Records to verify his claim to be the oldest person in the world after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died in June 2013 aged 116 years and 54 days.
Despite his astonishing age, Sivananda lives with no help or medical aid, performing hours of yoga every day and eating food with no spices.
He said: “Discipline is the most important thing is life. One can conquer anything with discipline in food habits, exercise, and sexual desires.”
“Control over your needs is the biggest gain in life.
“I have lived for so long because material things don’t make me happy.”
