Welcome to Bihar Yoga Bharati

“Everyone’s good wishes are working. My guru, Swami Sivanandaji, conceived the vision of a Yoga Vedanta Forest University. Now the decision has been taken. This new educational institution will be called Bihar Yoga Bharati because I want to make it clear that I have immense gratitude towards Bihar, the place where yoga has again emerged”.
Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati

BYBThe realization of a saint’s vision... shining jewel-like on a hilltop overlooking the Ganga, Bihar Yoga Bharati (BYB) is dedicated to the study of yoga in a gurukul environment, providing a spiritual oasis in the technological desert of the 21st century.

Swami Sivananda first had the vision of a yoga institute when he established the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in Rishikesh. This inspiration was carried forward by Swami Satyananda, who established Bihar School of Yoga in 1963, followed by the Ganga Darshan complex in Munger. Swami Niranjanananda, with the blessings of his predecessors, founded Bihar Yoga Bharati in 1994 in order to preserve and regenerate the total scope of yogic science by combining academic and scientific methodology with a spiritual vision.

BYB has been established along the lines of Nalanda and Vikramshila, two great spiritual centres of learning. It will continue the work started by these ancient centres as a path-finder for the current and future spiritual awakening of people throughout the world, in the spheres of Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and other allied subjects. BYB offers scholars, scientists, doctors and yoga aspirants from all parts of the world a golden opportunity to work together to formulate a scientific basis for the growth, expansion and rapid integration of yoga into modern society.
