A Hindu monk who claims to be the world’s oldest man ― at 120 ― credits his longevity to no sex or spices and to performing yoga daily for hours.

Swami Sivananda, who was born on August 8, 1896, according to his passport, is applying to Guinness World Records to verify his claim, reports the Huffington Post, citing AFP.

Sivananda was born into extreme poverty and orphaned before his relatives gave him away to a spiritual guru and he chose to become a monk.

He told AFP: “I lead a simple and disciplined life. I eat very simply ― only boiled food without oil or spices, rice and boiled daal (lentil stew) with a couple of green chillies.”

He sleeps on a floor mat and uses a wooden slab as a pillow, AFP reported. He said his long life is due to “yoga, discipline, and celibacy.”
