Learn to give, give in plenty, give with love, give without any expectation, one does not lose anything by giving, on the other hand you get back a thousand fold.
Sivananda Math was created in 1984 by Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati in honour of his Guru Swami Sivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh. Based on the central teachings of Swami Sivananda, ‘serve, love and give’, Sivananda Math provides selfless service and uplifts the impoverished, people in the remote rural area of Rikhia, in the state of Jharkhand, India.
Since 1991, it has been running a wide range of activities which provide and teach techniques to the villagers in the area to enable them to earn their own living and attain self-sufficiency, as the activities of Sivananda Math are not rendered as charity nor do they create a culture of dependency.
What is of utmost importance in all the projects of Sivananda Math is aradhana or worship of God in human form which is traced back to the highest Vedantic teachings of atmabhav. It is where you see yourself in everyone and you see everyone in yourself.
Today, Swami Satyasangananda, who is the Peethadhishwari of Rikhiapeeth, guides and directs all the activities of Sivananda Math, and ensures that the precepts of Swami Sivananda are upheld.
