Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati (1960)

Swami NiranjananandaA yogi from earliest childhood, Swami Niranjananda Saraswati joined the Bihar School of Yoga in 1964 and was initiated into Dashnami Sannyasa in 1971. At the age of eleven he was sent to live abroad by his Guru Swami Satyananda, giving him direct experience and understanding of people from a vast array of cultures and walks of life. Those years instilled in him a rare, cross-culture insight into human nature, enabling him to communicate and interact with the international community with familiarity, ease and humour.
Combined with his depth of spiritual and yogic knowledge, this background equipped Swami Niranjananda to guide the Bihar School of Yoga and the international yoga movement from 1983 until 2008, when he began handling over the administration to the next generation. During this time he also authored many classic books on Yoga, Tantra and the Upanishads and founded Bihar Yoga Bharati, the world-first yoga university, while continuing extensive national and international touring.
Following retirement from his role at the Bihar School of Yoga, Swami Niranjananda established Sannayasa Peeth for the development and training of Sannyasins, and for his own pursuit of the higher sadhanas os Sannyasa.
As the spiritual successor to Swami Satyananda, Swami Niranjananda continues to inspire aspirants around the world.
