Saraswati Library Rocklyn is a specialised library of Yoga and related subjects available to Satyananda Yoga teachers, yogic studies students, ashram residents and guests.
Our library is guided by and named in honour of the Divine Mother Saraswati. Saraswati Ma is the Goddess of learning, knowledge and wisdom of the highest spiritual kind. She is also the Goddess of fine arts and speech.
Yoga teachers, yogic studies students, ashram residents and guests can use and borrow from the Saraswati Library during their ashram stay. Yogic Studies students can borrow and take books home during the course of their studies. Yoga Association of Victoria (YAV) members can borrow and take books home. Loans of books to other people for use outside the Ashram are available to subscribed members who have paid a $50.00 non-refundable library membership fee.
The Saraswati Library catalogue is stored on LibraryThing - a social cataloguing web application - and is freely available for searching by anyone. The catalogue will help you find books in your areas of research or interest which you may wish to borrow from the Saraswati Library (if you are a subscribed member), borrow from your local library, or purchase from a bookstore or online bookseller.
The catalogue is a work in progress and will continue to evolve over time and be continuously updated as new items are added to, or deleted from, the library’s collection.
To maintain an up to date library for research, personal study and general yoga interest donations of money to fund the purchase of books is welcomed.
