Bihar School Of Yoga
Bihar School of Yoga was set up in 1963 in Munger, Bihar, by Sri Swami Satyananda. Its aim was to provide yogic training to all who came there. It also aimed to revive the ancient yogic practices and to develop techniques that combined the ancient sciences with modern day physical and mental health practices, to address the person as a whole. Currently, Bihar School of Yoga continues to guide yoga research projects in different fields. Their training programs are used in educational institutions, the medical field, in prisons and in corporate houses. In keeping with the second phase and in tune with the concept of Yoga Chakra the ashram offers courses in Hatha Yoga, Raj Yoga and Kriya Yoga. Other courses such as Ashram life and Health Mangement are offered separately throughout the year.
Envisioned by Sri Swami Satyananda, Sannyasa Peeth came into being in December 2010 on the first anniversary of his Mahasamadhi. Following the mandate of his Guru, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati set up Sannyasa Peeth on the banks of the river Ganga, to establish the spiritual teachings of Sannyasa as a lifestyle. Sannayasa as a lifestyle aims to expand the mind so as to develop human potential to its fullest extent. Under his inspiration and guidance, Sannyasa Peeth makes the teachings, values, and ideals of Sannyasa accessible to all.
Rikhiapeeth was formally established during Sat Chandi Mahayajna in November 2006 by Sri Swami Satyananda. It functions as a philanthropic institution and a modern-day Gurukul, which aims to disseminate the knowledge of the Vedas, Upanishads, and Puranas to all – regardless of caste, creed, nationality, religion, and gender. It also has the mandate to propagate the three cardinal teachings of Swami Sivananda – to serve, love and give.
