The main attraction of this book for most people may be that Tapasviji lived to 185 years.

He prolonged his life through three kaya-kalpa treatments, which are a far cry of what is popularized as kaya-kalpa over the internet these days. While kaya-kalpa treatment Tapasviji went through involved the use of some herbal preparation, which caused him first to go unconscious for a number of days and in the process of kaya-kalpa treatment which was conductted in a womb-like atmosphere - a totally dark room, in which a person would be in a way reborn and would have to be taken care of much like a baby needs to be taken care of, his hair, skin and teeth would be replaced or rather a new set of teeth would re-grow, the old skin would be replaced with new one and the grey hair would be replaced with dark hair the man had in his youth - during the treatment he drank nothing but a cup of milk with those herbs once a day, and whatever time he was conscious he was immersed in meditation on the infinite. As he himself said, herbs used in kaya-kalpa were of secondary importance, what mattered the most was that the person be immersed in meditation on that which is immortal and eternal.

Tapasviji was about 100 years old at the time of first treatment and he was ready to die, but then a man offered to do kaya-kalpa treatment on him, which lasted 3 months. In exchange, he then performed the same treatment for 3 months on a man. After the treatment he apparently resembled a man who is about 30 - 40 years old.

When he was about 150 years, he underwent the treatment again - this time for an entire year, and later on, he underwent the treatment one for time, but only for about 40 days.

Format: Paperback
A intriguing insight in the actual lifestyle, practises and paranormal acts that take place in the lives of advanced yogi's who reside in the himalaya mountains.
Maharaj is a story of a Yogi who passed away at age 185. He conducted fierce austeries like standing on one leg for 3 yrs, roaming naked in the snow clad mountains for years.walking thousands of miles from pujab to burma...etc
A "must read " book for all people who meditate or contemplate on God...truely inspiring life
