Since the day Maharishi renounced family of his parents, he started learning yoga from a number of yogis and saints, chief among them were yogi Shivanand Giri and Jwalanand Puri. This made Maharishi a yogi of the highest order with unique attainments.
But Swamiji was opposed to make yogic perfection an item of display. But his disciple Swami Sahajanand had a unique opportunity of secretly observing on an early morning. Maharishi sitting in yogic pose, squatting crossed legs, on the surface of water in a pool near Navlakha Mahal. A divine illumination was around Maharishi and his face was glittering.
