Uttarakhand Swami Satyananda

Swami Satyananda

Uttarakhand Swami Satyananda was born in 1923 in Almora. He showed spiritual tendencies as well as a heightened awareness from the age of 6.

He left home in 1943 and made contact with Swami Sivananda at Rishikesh where the Swami initiated him into the Dashnami Sannyas.

Satyananda undertook such intense nishkam (selfless) seva that he was enabled to realize the secrets of spirituality. He was a student of yoga, Tantra, Vedanta and Kundalini Yoga. He established the Bihar School of Yoga in 1963 and became a pioneer of this yoga practice.
