Shivanand Baba ascending the stairs from the third floor

Shivanand Baba, who lives in the Durgakund area of ​​Varanasi, lives on the third floor of his building. The biggest thing is that there is no lift in the building where he lives. His disciples tell that Baba Ji climbs and descends the three-floor stairs without any support twice a day. During this, they do not even have any problem, whereas we are not able to do this even once. It has been over 120 years while doing yoga to Baba Sivananda.
