About Swami Sivananda:
Swami Sivananda (1887–1963) was one of the great Self-realized masters of India. In his life he pursued two careers, that of a successful physician and that of a yogi and sage.
Swami Sivananda was a prince among men, a jewel among saints. Service and love were the weapons he used to conquer the hearts of men. Swami Sivananda did not found a new religion, nor did he develop any new rules of ethics and morality. Instead, he helped the Hindu become a better Hindu, the Christian a better Christian, the Muslim a better Muslim.
There was an enduring power in Swami Sivananda – in his thoughts, his words and his deeds. He was the divine power of truth, purity, love and service.
