In Satyananda Yoga today, there is an emphasis on reaching out to others in need. It means reaching out to those beyond the confines of our family, to people we do not know. There are so many people who are in need of assistance, support or little acts of kindness. Seva yoga is the upliftment of others, offering one’s time and money to assist those less fortunate. Sri Swamiji lived to serve, love and give.
Swami Sivamurti Saraswati
Swami Sivamurti Saraswati, a disciple of Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati, brought yoga to Greece over 40 years ago, carrying out the mission given to her by her guru. This has been the ancient tradition of yoga for millennium. Sri Swami Satyananda carried out the mission of his guru, the great luminary Sri Swami Sivananda who gave him the mandate to ‘spread yoga from shore to shore and from door to door.” The yoga of Sri Swami Sivananda was to “serve, love, give,” and Satyananda Yoga is a continuation of this.
“Take care of your neighbors as I have taken care of you”
Swami Satyananda Saraswati
