During his travels, he worked in many countries, studied philosophy and history, and became proficient in numerous languages.

As a young explorer, he journeyed throughout the Middle East, Central Asia, and India. While in India, Swami Satyananda traveled an unbeaten path into India’s interior and remained there for fifteen years, walking across the length and breadth of the Himalayas. Wherever Swamiji went, he would learn the local systems of worship, becoming proficient in numerous Indian languages, including Bengali, Hindi, Pahari and Urdu. He also became fluent in, and developed a deep passion for, Sanskrit.

He knew the mountain pathways and the local Indian cultures. He understood Sanskrit and the local Indian languages. With this as his foundation, the verses of his Sanskrit translations come alive with colorful experience. He translates with a universal understanding and application, which can only come from an international citizen, who has traveled on every continent and in more countries than we can count.

Swami Satyananda Saraswati’s translations from Sanskrit have been translated into English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, French, German, Nederlands, and Portuguese. Swamiji’s original texts and translations convey inspiration, joy, and the Love of one who has enjoyed the experience of spiritual fellowship around the world.
