Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati


"If you teach yoga only for the body, it becomes a part of physical training, physical culture, physical exercise, which is incomplete. The body is not isolated from the mind or from the emotions or from the spirit.

Out of all the different traditions in the world, the Satyananda Yoga / Bihar Yoga Tradition aim at integrating the physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions of yoga in one practice."

Swami Niranjanananda

Swami Niranjanananda is the manas putra of Swami Satyananda, his mind born son. Swami Satyananda invited a divine soul of his choice to take birth and that soul was Swami Niranjan. He lived in his guru's ashram from an early age, and there he underwent rigorous sannyasa training, after which, at the age of eleven, under the guidance of his guru, he left India and travelled extensively to further the establishment of Satyananda Yoga ashrams and yoga centres throughout the world. This deepened his experience and profound understanding of contemporary society and modern scientific trends.

He has provided practical guidance and inspired aspirants everywhere to live a yogic lifestyle by integrating head, heart and hands and developing spiritual awareness. He was president of the Bihar School of Yoga from 1983 – 2008. In 1990 he was initiated as a Paramahasa Sannyasin and in 1995 appointed spiritual preceptor in succession to Swami Satyananda. In 1994, he established the first yoga university of its kind, the Bihar Yoga Bharati (BYB) an Institute for Advanced Studies in Yogic Sciences and in 2000 the Yoga Publications Trust. He also initiated a children’s’ yoga movement, Bal Yoga Mitra Mandal in 1995. In parallel with the developing activities in Munger, he travelled in India and all over the world to meet the call of yoga aspirants everywhere. In 2010, he established Sannyas Peeth, a center dedicated to protecting and propagating the ideals of sannyasa.
He is the author of numerous books on yoga and spiritual life and is universally revered and loved as a spiritual master, not just because of his infinite wisdom and compassion, but because he is a man who radiates joy and celebrates each moment of life.
