In celebration of the 123 birth anniversary of the founder of the Divine Life Society HH Swami Sivananda, Swami’s who were initiated by the Divine Life Society of India united to form the new Sivananda Fellowship.

The grand celebration which was held at the Sri Adi Shankara Ashram in Johannesburg was attended by the President of the World body HH Swami Vimalandaji Maharaj from the headquarters in India.

Swami Vimalandaji Maharaj said, ” This move on the part of the spiritual leaders of the various Swami Sivananda Centres to unite as one Divine family is most highly commendable and augurs very well for the future of the movement in S.A. I am indeed very proud of the wonderful work that the various Swami’s are involved in, especially among the poor and needy.”

Branches from Cape Town Ananda Kutir Ashram, Sivananda School of Yoga, Integral Yoga Centre PMB and children from the Sarva Dharma Ashram in Welbedacht thrilled the audience with their singing talent and a wonderful sketch entitled, ‘Lip Service to God.’
