Guys, you may be familiar with the Padma Shri award. If not, then let me tell you, Padma Shree is one of the highest civilian awards in India, like Bharat Ratna, Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan.
So, Here Swami Sivananda received the precious award from India's President Ramnath Kovind and a standing ovation at the age of 125 years.
Swami Sivananda is one of the oldest men in the world. He saw ancient times and is still alive in this modern technological world.
The award goes to him because of his immense contribution in Yoga and maintaining a disease-free long life with early morning yoga practice and a healthy diet.
He was born in Bangladesh in 1896 and lost his parents at an early age. After that, he started living in an ashram under the guidance of his guru in West Bengal. From there, he learned Yoga and took a spiritual education.
He knows three languages Hindi, English and Bengali. Currently, Swami Sivananda is living in Varanasi.
During interviews, Swami Sivananda said that he has a zero interest in materialistic things and enjoys living life spiritually.
He arrived in the Rashtrapati Bhavan with bare feet and met with Narendra Modi, Ramnath Kovind and other higher authorities with respectful greetings.
Swamiji is becoming an inspiration to thousands of people across the globe because of the simplicity and good health he has.
