In 2006 I heard Swami Vishnu’s voice, “ Get these lectures out to the people.” My 200 + cassettes grew to 850 + as Swamiji’s Senior disciples gave me their copies of lectures. (1974 TTC was the earliest_ Taking four trips around the world in thirty years has brought all of us the finest collection  in the world of Master Sivananda and some of His disciples. Yoga movies, lectures, and photos are now at your fingertips. This began in 1980. Master Sivananda has decided to that August 2010 He will again begin to teach via the Internet. This project is a humble attempt to accomplish His mission.

Swami Venkatesananda served Master Sivananda as a personal Assistant many years.


Swami Venkatesananda (Parthsarathy as he was known then) was born in Tanjore on December 29th, 1921, to a South Indian Brahman family. He learned Sanskrit at an early age from his uncle and grandfather, and used to love to take part in religious observances. He was intelligent and full of fun (a trait which endeared him in later life when, as a Swami, he travelled in the West, illustrating the everyday concepts we live by with his humorous stories.)

    At the age of fourteen he discovered a book by Swami Sivananda in a bookshop. He was so impressed that he wrote to Swami Sivananda asking if he could join Him in his ashram. Swami Sivananda told him to finish his education and then come to Rishikesh

    On leaving school, he studied shorthand and typing, coming first in the examination. After working for the Madras Corporation, he obtained the position of Private Secretary to the Minister of War in Calcutta.

In this capacity one day he was asked to escort some V.I.P's to Haridwar and Rishikesh. He visited Sivananda Ashram and was told that Swami Sivananda was resting and he wouldn't be able to meet him. Shortly after, Sivananda unexpectedly came out. He looked at Parthasarathy and said, "So. You have come," and asked him to stay at the ashram.

16. His writings are all about Master Sivananda, what He said and what He did. His books are the best.
