In the early 1940s, Sri Swami Sivananda Saraswati had a vision of spiritual life that could be lived by all. He declared that without spiritual life, humankind is nowhere. He held dissemination of spiritual knowledge as 'the crowning glory of human activities, the highest of all yajnas.' Filled with compassion to guide all aspirants and struggling seekers, Swami Sivananda authored over 300 books without any regard for a return or royalties. Just as Swami Sivananda looked always to the spread of spiritual knowledge, so too have Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati and his spiritual successor Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati, who together have gifted humanity with a stream of seminal works on all aspects of yoga, including texts on yoga practices, techniques, teachings and philosophy, and on yoga practices for health improvement.
In continuation of the tradition of the jnana yajna of Swami Sivananda, the collected publications of Swami Satyananda and Swami Niranjanananda are being presented online on the occasion of the Munger Yoga Symposium. It is with the utmost happiness and joy that Bihar School of Yoga and Yoga Publications Trust present Satyam Yoga Prasad wherein all publications are available online, as guru prasad, with prayers and wishes for the peace, health, happiness and upliftment of all.
