About the Authors:

Swami Satyananda is considered to be one of the major forces in bringing yoga to the West. He travelled the world tirelessly for over twenty years sharing the inspiration of yoga. During this time he wrote over 80 books on Yoga, Tantra and Spirituality. Swami Satyananda retired from public life in 1988 to work for mankind's upliftment in a more universal way. He moved to Rikhiapeeth, in a small village in Jharkhand in India, where he worked to support the local community and improve their quality of life.

After inspiring millions to live the divine life, Swami Satyananda took mahasamadhi at midnight on December 5th 2009 at Rikhiapeeth, leaving the present inspirers of the Satyananda Yoga tradition, Swami Niranjanananda and Swami Satyasangananda (popularly known as Swami Satsangi), to continue his work for humanity.

Swami Sivananda Saraswati (September 8, 1887—July 14, 1963) was a spiritual teacher, yogi, guru and saint and a well known proponent of Vedanta. Swami Sivananda was born Kuppuswami in Pattamadai, in the Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. He studied medicine and served in Malaya as a physician for several years before taking up monasticism. He lived most of the later part of his life near Muni Ki Reti, Rishikesh.
He is the founder of The Divine Life Society (1936), Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy (1948) and author of over 200 books on yoga, vedanta and a variety of other subjects. He established Sivananda Ashram, the location of the headquarters of The Divine Life Society (DLS), on the bank of the Ganges at Shivanandanagar, at a distance of 3 kilometres from Rishikesh.
