MIAMI, FLORIDA, June 4, 2001: His Holiness Sri Swami Buaji Maharaj, has been in Miami since mid-May teaching hatha yoga at Wayne Krassner's Shakti Yoga Loft, where Madonna and other stars have practiced. "He won't tell you his age if you ask," explains Krassner who said the Swami "indirectly" revealed that he is 115. Krassner met Swami Bua in New York City, where the Swami has lived for three decades and where he founded the Indo-American Yoga-Vedanta Society. He still teaches free yoga and meditation classes every day he's in town. Swami Bua is happy to talk about his lifestyle: He consumes mostly fruit and vegetable juices -- figs, dates, kiwi, grapefruit and oranges are his favorites. The magazine Hinduism Today honored Swami Bua as Hindu of the Year in 1998.
