Swami SuryadevanandaWelcome…

This is the home of my new website and will be the primary platform for my work which extends to my YouTube channel and the Sivananda Daily Readings – both of which can be subscribed to. I do not have any technical background and so this is and will continue to be a work-in-progress.

Salutations and greetings…

My journey is rooted in the principles of Divine Life – a quest of self-discovery and transformation. The teachings of Swami Sivananda have been the light on the path in their utter simplicity and practicality.

Leading the Divine Life is leading a life of discovery and transformation at the same time. It is discovery if I can learn to observe all that happens in the world outside and the world inside at the same time. The ongoing discovery gives us a steady opportunity for transformation as we can than act in the light of wisdom – free from the clutches of the inner world.

External situations are not the reason for the turmoil we experience. The uncontrolled outrush of the conditioned past surges out to envelop and eclipse the present till we see the past in and as the present. This overshadowing happens in the blink of an eye.

I reside in USA and do not have an organization or structure. This website is the platform for offering my work. I am not a guru and am not in the habit of keeping disciples. I will continue to post my work on this website as an offering to all for personal and non-commercial use only. Kindly write for permission to reprint for any non-commercial use of my work. Commercial use of any of my work is not permitted.


The Divine Life Society, Rishikesh, India for their kind permission to use Gurudev Swami Sivananda’s works.

Wyeth and Trina Stiles at In Flight Studio for setting-up this website and helping me through it.

My other offerings

Sivananda Daily Readings:The best way to start and end the day. Subscribers receive page sized inspirational teaching from the writings of Swami Sivananda, compiled by Swami Venkatesananda. These teachings are content progressive and cover the entire width of Yoga and Vedanta in a practical and easy to follow format. Messages are sent daily for the next day to accommodate different time zones. Though the teachings stay the same, we change and with it, everything becomes different, more meaningful.

YouTube Channel: Currently has 76 videos in a few playlists. In some, I have combined video with slides containing text of the main points as a better way to share thoughts. Videos, audio and eBooks for most part, can be downloaded from this website.
