Longevity myth

Billafunda (Siddha) Sayadaw U.Kowida (allegedly born 908/968?) is a Burmese man who claims to be 1113 years old,[1] making this longevity myth the most extreme modern claim known.


Siddha was claimed to have been born in the year 908. He said that he went through a fire transformation ceremony to achieve his immortality.

A source from 2007 says that he was actually born in 968 to U. Thar Aung and Daw Yin May which would make him 1053 years old, still the most extreme modern claim known.
