“Our vision of yoga is ‘yoga as a subject of life’. This vision was conceived by Swami Sivananda and it was given a definite form and shape by Swami Satyananda. We are the experimenters and practitioners of that yoga. Today, from my experience, I can say that yoga is not a method by which one can attain self-realization, but it is the method by which one can appreciate and worship life and the opportunities that life presents to each one of us.”The Yogadrishti (Yogavision) Series of satsangs consists of discourses given by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati in Munger as part of the new phase of sannyasa life that he has embarked upon since 2009.The theme of the satsangs Swamiji gave in February 2011 al Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yoga Peeth was the development of Satyananda Yoga. Going back to ancient times and tracing the evolution of yoga, Swamiji presented the roots of Satyananda Yoga. He provided an understanding of yoga from a wide perspective: as worship of life and as a sadhana to rediscover and enhance the qualities of one’s nature. Recounting the life and teachings of Swami Sivananda and Swami Satyananda, Swamiji described the transformative role of Bihar School of Yoga in the pages of history.
