Swami Gnanananda Giri, the sixth Peetathipathi of Jyothir Mutt, one of the four Amnaya Mutts established by Adhi Sankara. The Sage who breaks the aging process.
Sadguru Sri Gnanananda Giri Maharaj, a Himalayan Sage, Mahayogi and great Gnana Siddha lived to a phenomenally long and undetermined age. Not much is known about his early life. Many were curious to know the secret of his conquest of the aging process of the body. He would discourage their queries about his age, saying with a gentle smile "Ask me about the immortal Atman within and not about the perishable body".
But, from his chance remarks, those close to him have made out an account of his life. He was born of orthodox Brahmin parents in Mangalapuri near Gokarna, a sacred pilgrimage center in Karnataka, most probably 1200 years ago (could be more).
