Swami Satyananda was born at Almora. Uttar Pradesh, in 1923. In 1943 he met Swami Sivananda in Rishikesh, where he lived as a sannyasin for the next 12 years.
Swami Satyananda founded the International Yoga Fellowship in 1956 and the Bihar School of Yoga in 1963. Over the next 20 years he toured internationally and authored over 80 books.
In 1984 he founded Sivananda Math, a charitable institution for aiding rural development, and the yoga Research Foundation.
In 1988 he adopted kshetra sannyasa and settled in Rikhia, jharkhand, where he now lives as a paramahamsa sannyasin.
Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati came to the village of Rikhia (Jharkhand) in 1989. There he performed intense austerities and, as a result of his sadhanas, transformed the lives of the villagers around him, whom he calls his 'neighbours'. Rikhiopeeth Satsangs is a selection of talks given by Sri Swamiji between 2000 and 2007 to visitors from all over the world.
The satsangs exemplify Sri Swamiji's liberal, compassionate and practical views on a broad range of subjects, including ashram life, guru-disciple relationship, sannyasa, the Cosmic Mother, kanya worship, anna daan, children, awakening of consciousness, yoga, poverty, Purushartha, destiny, opening the heart, and the future vision of Rikhiapeeth. Rikhiapeeth individuals seeking guidance on how to meet the needs of the modern age.
