The Bihar Yoga Bharati
The Bihar Yoga Bharati, University of Yoga, was founded in 1994 by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati. The principles of this institution have their roots in the ancient Indian universities of Nalanda and Vikramshila and is looking to mediate tradition with current and future needs of humanity.
With the intention of continuing the work of Paramahamsa Satyananda and to concretize the vision of Swami Shivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh, the institution consists of three faculties : philosophy of Yoga, psychology of Yoga and applied Yoga. The Bihar Yoga Bharati offers students hailing from different backgrounds a comprehensive and thorough education in Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and other associated disciplines.
The objective is to link academic study with the atmosphere of ashram life. On a subtle level, the students absorb yogic qualities of seva-selfless service, samarpan-devotion, and karuna-compassion. Each year, courses of four months are scheduled for everyone in English and in Hindi.
The Ganga Darshan campus, situated on a hill overlooking the Ganges, offers an exceptional setting and auspicious atmosphere for spiritual development and is considered to be a spiritual oasis for the XXI century.
