Welcome to the Swami Venkatesananda Website.

   Both a renowned Sanskrit scholar and yogi, Swami Venkatesananda - like his master, Swami Sivananda - can be regarded as a sage of practical wisdom.

   Focusing on issues that concern all branches of yoga, it is our intention to provide materials that will enrich and enliven your understanding and practice of yoga. 

   Our thanks to our good friends for helping us digitize the Chiltern Yoga Trust's edition of The Bhagavad Gita, Song of God, as well as Enlightened Living, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, (often referrred to simply as The Yoga Sutras). Here we have posted the final version, with the changes made by Swami Venkatesananda himself. He considered earlier editions to be in need of revision, and made the necessary revisions in a small printing that was published in South Africa in 1975.  The 1975 edition, available here, should be considered to supercede not only the previous versions, but even his text which appeared in publications after 1975, including a text which appeared in 1998.

  Special thanks go to Chiltern Trust Australia for providing recordings of public talks and casual Q&A sessions with yoga teachers and students. We are adding them to the site as we restore and digitize them. You can use the OGG files to stream with directly from the Mozilla Firefox browser).  


The final lectures on The Yoga Vasistha given in 1982 by Swami Venkatesananda in Western Ausralia, and made available on seven DVDs containing roughly fourteen hours of video, with this entire set of seven DVDs made available for the low price of $55 (Australian) plus economical low cost air freight added to your order. To order please visit the Sivananda Ashram site at the Beacon Hill Yoga Centre in Fremantle, Western Australia by clicking here, or if you have any questions please feel to write  Shoba Day at Sivananda/Beacon Hill Yoga Centre at info@sivanandaashram.org.au
