Baba Vishuddhanandaji the master of Yoga and self-realization who lived in the first half of this century was an embodiment of Yoga and knowledge of reality combined with compassion for one and all. Babaji possessed the eight siddhis Anima, Mahima etc., and demonstrated the same to his admirers. Surya-Vijnan, Chandra-Vijnan, Nakshatra-Vijnan and Vayu-Vijnan worked at his command. Dr. Gopinath Kaviraj, deeply struck by his feats in his early years became his disciple all his life and got his initiation in Mantras. It is a pity that Independent India has not produced even one of Baba's type.
