Swami Sivananda Saraswati


Swami Sivananda Saraswati was born at Pattamadai, (Tamil Nadu) in 1887. After serving as a medical doctor in Malaya, he renounced his practice to search for his Guru in the foothills of the Himalayas. He settled in the sacred valley of Rishikesh and was initiated into the Dashnami Sannyasa tradition in 1924 by Swami Vishwananda Saraswati.

In subsequent years he wrote hundreds of books and articles on yoga and spirituality to maintain and introduce yogic values in the minds of the general public.
His emphasis was on breaking down the barriers which separated the needy from the teachings that could help them, whether this took the form of yoga for health, peace of mind or spiritual aspiration. This ideology continues to guide the work of the Satyananda branch of his lineage.

To this end Swami Sivananda toured India extensively, inspiring people to practice yoga and lead a divine life. He founded the Divine Life Society at Rishikesh in 1936, the Sivananda Ayurvedic Pharmacy in 1945, the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in 1948 and the Sivananda Eye Hospital in 1957. He attained Maha Samadhi on 14 July 1963.

A great spiritual luminary of the 20th century, Swami Sivananda Saraswati developed yoga as a practical, integrated subject which everyone could apply in their lives. Embodying the spirit of service to humanity, he inspired people to practice yoga and lead a divine life. His eightfold path: serve, love, give, purify, be good, do good, meditate, realize, became a roadmap for spiritual aspirants world wide.
