Shivapuri Baba was a Brahmin in Kerala who spent 20 years in absolute solitude in the jungles, until he started, as he says, to ‘see God as Absolute’. When 50, he went on a pilgrimage around the world, the most part of it on foot, spreading the message of Yoga wherever he went. He was a sensation at that time, spent time as a guest of Queen Victoria, and met with Roosevelt. He then went for the ultimate journey to Nepal, and died with 137 years of age, a life of a Yogi as witnessed and retold by J.G. Bennet in his inspiring book ‘The Long Pilgrimage’.
