Swami Sivananda Saraswati
The institution is dedicated in the honour of “Param Gurudev” and the modern propagator of Yoga in Modern age. The book of ‘Yoga Asanas” was first printed by H.H. Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj in the year 1931 and recently 14th edition of the book is reprinted. A small biography as published in the cover page of the above book by International Divine Life Society is extracted below:

““Born on the 8th September 1887, in the illustrious family of Sage Appayya Dikshitar and several other renowned saints and savants, Sri Swami Sivananda had a natural flair for a life devoted to the study and practice of Vedanta. Added to this was an inborn eagerness to serve all and an innate feeling of unity with all mankind.

His passion for service drew him to the medical career; and soon he gravitated to where he thought that his service was most needed. Malaya claimed him. He had earlier been editing a Health Journal and wrote extensively on health problems. He discovered that people needed right knowledge most of all; dissemination of that knowledge, he espoused as his own mission.
It was divine dispensation and the blessing of God upon mankind that the doctor of body and mind renounced his career and took a life of renunciation to qualify himself for ministering to the soul of man. He settled down at Rishikesh in 1924, practiced intense austerities and shone as a great Yogi, Saint, Sage and Jivanmukta.

In 1932 Swami Sivanandaji started the Sivanandashram. In 1936, was born ‘The Divine Live Society’. In 1948 the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy was organized. Dissemination of spiritual knowledge and training of people in Yoga and Vedanta were their aim and object. In 1950 Swamiji undertook a lightning tour of India and Ceylon. In 1953 Swamiji convened a “World Parliament of Religions”. Swamiji is the author of over 300 volumes and has disciples all over the world, belonging to all nationalities, religions and creeds. To read Swamiji’s works is to drink at the fountain of wisdom Supreme. On 14th July, 1963 Swamiji entered Mahasamadhi”..
