On Sanyas

Swami Sivananda Radha

Sanyas is the Yoga of Renunciation. The practice of sanyas or swamihood is said to be the most effective tool to obtain liberation. Swami Sivananda Radha offers a unique perspective on sanyas and how this ancient practice continues to be a relevant and living tradition in the West. Collected from her talks and writings spanning 40 years, On Sanyas is a helpful guide for all those who are interested in a life of renunciation, and for those who are already on the path. Through her own experience as a sanyasi, Swami Sivananda Radha shows what it means to renounce possessions and live on faith. She explains renunciation in daily life, initiations, guru-disciple relationships and the karmic consequences of breaking the sanyas vows. Inspirational and challenging, On Sanyas gives rare insight into a life lived in renunciation.

There is more to renunciation than letting things go. It's a commitment to facing life and moving forward. It's a practice of compassion in a time when terrible things are happening in the world. It's a vow to look to each other and live a life that overcomes emotional turmoil and fear, creating a solid foundation to work with and to bring into the world. -Swami Radhananda
