Swami Satchidananda taught that the mind is like the lens of a camera. That the Yoga practices help to adjust the aperture and keep the lens of the mind clean so the world can be perceived and experienced with balanced, distilled and focused vision. Before being ordained into the Holy Order of Sannyais, he was a successful South Indian filmmaker and cinematographer.

My beloved eminent, world renowned Guru and Yoga Master, H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda, Founder of Integral Yoga and Satchidananda Ashrams International is one of the most Revered Guru’s, Spiritual Dignitaries and Yoga Masters of our time. At the invitation of his long time devotees, Pop Icon Artist Peter Max and filmmaker, Conrad Rooks (Chappaqua), he introduced Yoga to the U.S. in the 1960’s. His vast spectrum of influence in diverse Spiritual, Scientific, Artistic and Socio/political disciplines, has had profound far reaching global effects, providing the foundation and inspiration for the work of many high profile International celebrities including medical and political dignitaries and innovators, world-wide. He is the acclaimed bestselling Author and world renowned Yoga Master and Expert of numerous books, DvD’s and CD’s on Yoga, Meditation and diverse traditional Yoga and Spiritual practices and philosophy including the classic "Integral Yoga Hatha" and the bestselling DvD, “Yoga with a Master”. My book, Dr.Yoga, the Medical Benefits of Yoga, (PenguinTarcher) and my work, as a Yoga Cardiac Consultant on the Medical Faculty of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center , and in my private therapy practice are based on his easeful, non-strenuous traditional Integral Yoga teachings. His Teachings also provided the theoretical and practical foundation for the work of my medical collegue and long time friend Dean Ornish, author of the bestselling book, "Program for Reversing Heart" and "The Spectrum". Sri Swamiji was honored in an issue of Harper's Bazaar Magazine (2000) as one of the most venerated and respected Yoga Masters and Gurus's of our time. The above photo of him, that was featured in the issue, was shot on location at Tara and Peter Guber’s “Yoga House”, located in Bel Aire, Ca, where he was graciously honored by them on several occasions, and invited to offer Spiritual Guidance and Darshan (blessings) and inspiration to the Hollywood Celebrity and entertainment community. In honor of his tireless efforts toward personal and world peace and Unity he has been recipient of the prestigious “U Thant Peace Award” and the Albert Schweitzer “Humanitarian Award”. One of the Founders of the global Ecumenical Movement, with H.H. Dalai Lama and other eminent Spiritual Leaders, Sri Swamiji created L.O.T.U.S. the (Light of Truth Universal Shrine) located at Satchidananda Ashram in Yogaville, Va. dedicated to all Faiths, known and unknown. The Shrine and His famous quote "Truth is One, Paths are Many" are the hallmark of his Ecumenical Teachings and profound global Spiritual Service.
