Swami Sivananda (Author)

Sadhana: A Textbook Of The Psychology And Practice Of The Techniques Of Spiritual Perfection by Swami Sivananda is a guide book with processes and guidelines that help its readers to achieve spiritual perfection through Sadhana. Sivananda teaches readers the step-by-step ways to understand themselves. The book then explains how readers can understand what they want to achieve from spiritual practices. As per the author, the first thing one needs to have is an ideal. After identifying an ideal, the second step is to find a definite purpose. After identifying both of these, the method of proceeding forward needs to be created. To attain mental and physical peace, one needs to be free from the worldly attachments and these can be achieved through Abhyaas and Vairaagya. The methods by which one can learn these two practices and succeed in attaining peace are discussed in the book, so that, in cases of any worldly stress or disturbance, these acts can be used by readers to escape to a mental place of serenity. Sivananda leaves no angle of Sadhana untouched and imparts his wisdom for everyone seeking peace and contentment in life through this book. The book presents the process of achieving the three supports of an ideal, definite program and background of thought, finally leading to achievement of Sadhana.

About the author

Swami Sivananda

Born on the 8th September, 1887, in the illustrious family of Sage Appayya Dikshitr an several other renowned saints and savants, Sri Swami Sivananda had a natural flair for a life devoted to the study and practice of Vedanta. Added to this was an inborn eagerness to serve all and an innate feeling of unity with all mankind. His passion for service drew him to the medical career; and soon he gravitated to where he thought that his service was most needed. Malaya claimed him. He had earlier been editing a health journal and wrote extensively on health problems. He discovered that people needed right knowledge most of all; dissemination of that knowledge he espoused as his own mission. It was Divine dispensation and the blessing of God upon mankind that the doctor of body and mind renounced his career and took to a life of renunciation to qualify for ministering to the soul of man. He settled down at Rishikesh in 1924, practised intense austerities and shone as a great Yogi, saint, sage and Jivanmukta. In 1932 Swami Sivananda started the Sivanandashram. In 1936 was born The Divine Life society. In 948 the Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy was organized. Dissemination of spiritual knowledge and training of people in Yoga and Vedanta were their aim and object. In 950 Swamiji undertook a lightning tour of India and Ceylon. In 953 Swamiji convened a 'World Parliament of Religions'. Swamiji is the author of over 300 volumes and has disciples and creeds. To read Swamiji's works is to drink at the fountain of Wisdom Supreme. On 14th July, 1963 Swamiji entered Mahasamadhi.
