There is an inspiring story about the guru-disciple relationship. As a young man Swami Vishnudevananda (disciple) was in the army and accidentally stumbled upon a booklet with a quote by Swami Sivananda (guru). The quote read, ‘An ounce of practice is worth tons in theory.’ Swami Vishnudevananda was so inspired by the quote that he set out and traveled the breath of India to meet the writer. The first meeting with Swami Sivananda left a strong impression on the young Swami, he was so inspired that he decided to return again and ultimately surrender to the feet of his guru and immerse himself in learning everything about the Yogic science. This story in a certain way forms the premise of Sivanada Yoga – a traditional system of Yoga which is the dedication of a disciple to the teachings of his Guru.
