Inspiring Stories: My Time with the Guru

Join us for a journey into the lives of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda as captured in their biographies and through stories from their direct disciples.


To think of saints, to live in their company, to have good fortune of receiving their blessings, is to draw forth upon yourself a shower of purity, inspiration and divine consciousness” (Swami Sivananda, Bliss Divine). Studying the life of saints and sages is considered a high form of swadhyaya (self-study), and equal to their company. Staff of the Ashram who had the privilege to practice under Swami Vishnudevananda and other senior disciples of Swami Sivananda will share with us their personal memories of those great masters.
