120 - year- old ’ monk who claims to be the oldest man alive has credited celibacy for his long life.


Swami Sivananda was born on August 8 , 1896 , according to details in his passport .

Looking rather youthful for a 120 -year -old , Swami is now applying to Guinness World Records to verify his claim .

He believes he is the oldest person after Japan ’s Jiroemon Kimura died June 2013 aged 116 years and
54 days .

Sivananda , who was born in an extremely poor family , lives in Kolkata city , India, but had lived in the city of Varanasi all his life .

Despite his astonishing age , he lives with no help and no medical aid , performing yoga for hours every day .
He gives all the credit for his longevity to yoga , food with no spices and no s * x . He said :

“ Discipline is the most important thing is life .

“ One can conquer anything with discipline in food habits , exercise , and s * xual 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 . ”

Sivananda believes that times have changed but he is still the same. He said .
