His devotees were worried because he was having headaches for the first time in his life. Not bad for a 120-year old. So, the monk walked in for the first medical check-up of his life.
To put it in perspective, when Swami Sivananda was born, it had only been a year since X-ray was invented, and on Saturday, he didn’t bat an eyelid when he was wheeled into an MRI machine.

Swami Sivananda walked out with a clean bill of health, but for high blood pressure -even then his diastolic was absolutely normal at 80. The secret of baba’s health? Mashed green chillies every day. Plus boiled food, daily exercises and the joy of helping.
Swami Sivananda’s passport and Aadhaar card, put his age at 120, but he looks 50 years younger -there’s hardly a wrinkle on his cheeks. Doctors and nurses at the private hospital were awestruck by the monk’s mental and physical agility. They were speechless when he did a sarbangasana at the drop of a hat (or request).

Born on August 8, 1896, in Behala, then a village, the Swamiji could be the oldest living person.

In fact, he is about five years older than Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura, who holds the Guinness Record now

Though based in Varanasi, he moves around the country and abroad for spiritual discourses.
He seemed quite bemused at his first medical check-up. He is staying with a devotee in Salt Lake for about a month now. In the last few days, he started complaining of headaches after every discourse with devotees. Prodded by his followers, he agreed to a check-up. All these years, we’ve never heard Swamiji complain of health problems. When he said he was having headaches, we persuaded him to get a check-up,” said Dr S C Garai, a disciple.
All they found was systolic hypertension. “Even people in their forties can have such high blood pressure if they lead stressful lives. Swami Sivananda has the heart of a young man,” said Dr P C Mondal, an Interventional cardiologist at the hospital.
