Living a vow of poverty he owned nothing, ate but once a day, and fasted without food and water eight times a month. He meditated eight times a day and lived and breathed yoga.
He also studied Sanskrit, World Faiths, Modern Science and his groundbreaking research got published in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.
He practiced the eight stringent codes of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga 24/7/365. He experienced ‘yogic samadhi.’ This is an almost indescribable condition of spiritual bliss and inner awakening that reveals the spiritual oneness of all people.
