Swami Sadashiva Tirtha is the author of the Ayurveda Encyclopedia which will be included in Kepler, and Sirius program. Swami is also the author of Bhagavad Gita for Modern Times (commentary). In the early 1960's, before orange-clad monks (sanyasis) were a part of the American zeitgeist, this young boy's bedroom was decorated with orange curtains and rug; a presageful event even if it went unnoticed. The pre-swami routinely questioned why he was on this planet; what was his destiny. By the early 70's he was reading and experimenting with various forms of meditation and yoga asanas. Nearly 4 decades ago he began formal training, and by the mid 70's, was trained to teach meditation and yoga.

In 1989, Swamiji was a pioneer in the USA, founding one of the first herbal companies in 1988, certified in Ayurveda and Jyotish Vedic astrology in 1989, opening one of the first US Ayurveda centers, and founding one of the first Ayurveda certification schools in 1990. During that decade he continued private training in India with university professors and remote village doctors in the Himalayas. Swamiji holds the first D.Sc. in Ayurveda Research in the USA with his research study published. He is also a certified Vastu Shastra practitioner. He was initiated as a monk (sanyasi) by his guru, Swami Narayan Tirtha, in 1991. Swamiji also published two spiritual books in English on Siddhayoga (kundalini shakti) originally written in Hindi in the early 1900's.

Part of his mission is integrating the universal laws of nature common the various holistic Eastern & Western systems including astrological, astrometeorological, alternative healthcare, ecological health, educational, social, and political systems. These days Swamiji also travels internationally part of each year, holding workshops on these topics and helping people and organizations find their natural health and inner peace & paradise.

He is on the board of advisors of the Light on Ayurveda Journal, and has accept the lead role as 'Ayurveda Expert' for - whose vision is to bring unity to the CAM community.

Swamiji's unique teaching style fosters intuition, self-paced training, learning through direct experience, learning the essence of a subject (then letting the topic teach you what it wants you), and natural life force awakening (kundalini shakti).
