There may be hundreds of Yogis who can perform all above asanas on land. But Vasant Maharaj is unique, different and special among all Yogis in a way that he can perform many or almost most of the above mentioned asanas inside water, by floating nearly on water surface without sinking. While he performs such yoga postures, he plays beautiful patriotic and spiritual songs at background.

How come he developed this unique ability? When we asked his question to him, the answer that he replied was very interesting. He said “I was suffering from joint pain. A local teacher from my village advised me to start practicing yoga asanas. And I did so. With the passage of time my pain was gone. But as I practiced yoga regularly I was really intended to go further into it. And thus I studied various books such as Patanjali Sutra and many others and learnt about Yoga myself.”

He believes that there is no such thing as “Chamatkar” but rather everything is practical. From his example we can learn that everything is possible provided we go deep into it.
