Blessings of the Seer
“Everyone’s good wishes are working. My guru, Swami Sivanandaji, conceived the vision of a Yoga Vedanta Forest University. Now the decision has been taken. This new educational institution will be called Bihar Yoga Bharati because I want to make it clear that I have immense gratitude towards Bihar, the place where yoga has again emerged.”
Sri Swami Satyananda
The realization of a saint’s vision… shining jewel-like on a hilltop overlooking the Ganga, Bihar Yoga Bharati (BYB) is dedicated to the study of yoga in a gurukul environment, providing a spiritual oasis in the technological desert of the 21st century.
Sri Swami Sivananda Saraswati first had the vision of a yoga institute when he established the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in Rishikesh. This inspiration was carried forward by Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati, who established Bihar School of Yoga in Munger in 1963, followed by the Ganga Darshan complex. Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati, with the blessings of his predecessors, founded Bihar Yoga Bharati in 1994 in order to preserve and regenerate the total scope of yogic science by combining academic and scientific methodology with a spiritual vision.
