SWAMI SHIVANANDA

Swami Shivananda dressed to clothe, ate to live and lived to serve humanity.    As Kuppuswamy, he graduated as a medical doctor and went to Malaysia.    While serving selflessly, a sadhu gave him the book, ”Jeeva Brahma eikyam” which aroused the dormant spirituality in him.

At Rishikesh, Swami Shivananda did tapas along with service.     He started the Divine Life Society in 1936 to propagate the message of the Upanishads.    This has now grown to a worldwide organization.

Swami Shivananda chaired the World Parliament of Religions in 1953.    He attained Mahasamadhi in 1963.
