170 Year Old Hanuman Das Baba: A Living Saint of Vrindavan

Baba

The following photos are of Hanuman Das Baba of Vrindavan, who may be one of the oldest living saints on earth. Once I asked this Baba how old he was. He Replied he could not remember his age, but recalled that he was 12 years old when Jhansi Rani fought the British. You can deduce his age from that. Jhansi Rani fought the British in 1857, so he would be around 170 years old.

He mentioned to me that he had grown a second set of teeth after all of his teeth had fallen out, something that happens to some people after 100 years. I have seen and heard of some other babas who also grew second sets of teeth after 100 years.

When young, Hanuman Das Baba left his home and came to Vrindavan to become a devotee of Lord Krishna. He founded a wonderful goshala (cow sanctuary) there, where 1,000 cows are currently being served and protected. When he was a child, his mother was a servant of the queen of Jhansi, who died in 1858.

The ashram of this Baba is located along the Vrindavan parikrama path, a short distance from the Krishna Balarama Mandir. He stays in a tiny room, just a few feet wide. Whenever you visit Vrindavan, please take the opportunity to meet this rare living saint. You will be amazed by his simplicity and humility.

    Wah Prabhu teri Leela…

    Hope to get baba bless.

  5. MANOJ KUMAR TRIVEDI says:

    Thanks Guruji for posting this.

    Its really a rarest of rare occasion to have Darshan of such living saint at least in picture. His humility and sainthood is very much apparent from the picture itself.His concentrated sight reveals his darshan of LORD round the clock which I am pretty sure.
    Its a matter of sheer luck to have physical darshan. I am not that lucky which is proved by my circumstances and am compelled to confess this.Thanks for this opportunity.

  7. harendra singh says:

    So, the India is great.

  8. A.H.Srinivas says:

    According to Hindu Sanskruti. after 80 years he would have com[pleted 1000 poornima days and a ritual called ‘Sahasra Chandra Darshana’ (symbolizing sahasrraara kamala darshan achieved by yoga practices) is performed. Then he is worshipped as ‘Vishnu’. When whole family members, relatives and frkiends, well wishers come and prostrate to him Shri Hanumaan Baba who has com[pleted 170 what else to say. May Glory be unto him. Similarly Tapovan Swamyji also had completed 170 years, he also had second set of teeth. He was also a great saint.

  9. A. K. Panigrahi says:

    He is a living GOD. Whenever I will visit Mathura, I will definitely seek his blessings.

    Thank you ;may the divine guru the embodiment of all protection give refuge until the essence of perfection is attained, may the sangsaric bei;ngs dedicate their minds to the divine path of good wishes for entering into perfection, may you find and invoke the path of universality so the jewelline luminosity of the immortal soul be enfolded within the depths of the lotus center of awakened consciousness and you be wafted by the ecstasy of breaking all bonds and horizons

    Guys….

    No offense… but sesiously ? Even thought if this guy is 170 years old which itself i believe is some fairytale….

    wats up with the saint tag ? God ?

    does he not sleep ? eat, drink ? excrete like a human being….. does a god really do this ? God dies ?

    do u guys even like for a minute think outside the box ?

  33. sreedhar says:

    Living these many years in this generation is amazing, we heard that in Puranas that the people live for 1000 years but now we seeing live, we are blessed.

  34. Bankimkumar says:

    Please bless us all and to all who have Darshana of the BABA

  35. The Editor says:

    Here is a sadhu, who left his home at a young age and dedicated his entire life to God living in the holy dham of Vrindavan. Is he not a saint? Saint is nothing to do with his age, but with his actions. Adhi Shankara lived only 32 years, but he is also universally accepted as a saint.

    Should the word saint only be reserved for people or other religions like Mother Teressa? Is there any bias there?

  36. Kumar says:

    May i know where is this place ?

  37. Marco says:

    Hai om

  45. Alieta says:

    Interesting! what is his diet and could you please share other details about his lifestyle? his age was probably not verified by authorities but he seems to be very old. My understanding is that religion, spirituality are a crucial part of the recipe for longevity, but so are the diet and community/family support, therefore more insigths are desired.

  46. Raj Kumar says:

    Jai Shri Hanuman Babaji……..ki baghwan kare aise logo aur jiye 1000 saal……..may god wish him ……………….

  84. Krishna Sharma says:

    Is there any other Saint like him in Vrindavan, who is more than 100 Yrs old. please inform.
    tell me if any other saint living anywhere else.

  85. Anoop Sharma says:

    To get blessing of a saint really means aid in knowing oneself. Trying to know Self is the highest of Bhakti, Jnana, Yoga and blessing from all saints combined. So walk the path and GOD/Silence/Ananta Shunya/ Paramatma or whatever you call it will be seen soon to be so near that you won’t be able to shake it off.

  86. narendra says:

    Purity & compassion of indian saints will always keep blessing to world.
