What is the Bihar School of Yoga (BSY)

The Bihar School of Yoga, Munger was founded in 1964 by Swami Satyananda Saraswati in holy memory of his guru Swami Sivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh.,to disseminate yogic techniques and a yogic way of life on an international scale. When the school was first founded, it was commonly belived that it could only be practised by ascetics and renunciates,thus householders knew very little about it. BSY was the first institution of its kind to impart training in the practical techniques of all aspects of Yoga to householders as well as to sannyasins, regardless of sex,nationality,caste or religion beliefs. Now the school has a large following,hundreds of branches and affiliated centres throughout India and around the world.

Ashram activities

Swami Satyananda's method and techniques of integral Yoga are a synthesis of all approaches to personal devlopment and every aspirant has an oppurtunity to learn and practise them. But the core of the ashram life is Karma Yoga - selfless work performed mindfully for the sake of spirtual evolution. In the ashram, spirtual understanding arises during the course of the daily duties, and energy is not wasted in speculation at the expense of purposeful activities .
