His parents were very devoted to Lord Siva and Kuppuswami was eager to join them twice daily for worship Puja and Kirtan Mantra chanting. His natural selfless spirit lead him to a career in the medical field.

The teachings of Master Sivananda are summarized in these 6 words: Heritage of Swami Sivananda. Gurudev Swami Sivananda was a very versatile man, and his personality and life had many facets. It is, therefore, difficult to pinpoint any particular legacy as his sole legacy. Some of them are: When Gurudev was asked what is his legacy, he had pointed out that Swami Chidananda is his legacy. Even if he had not left behind anything else worth mentioning, Gurudev would have been remembered respectfully for a very long time as the Guru of his great disciples.
A guru who can give to the mankind a saint of the caliber of Swamiji must be himself a great saint. Gurudev continues to live through his disciples and his teachings. In fact, Gurudev gave many capable sannyasins who initiated a new spiritual awakening throughout the world through the institutions they established and through their writings.
A common problem with the spiritual literature is that the reader is lost in the maze of the words, verbosity and intricacy. He fails to understand what the writer has to convey. But, Gurudev had a distinct inimitable style of his own.
He did not write scholarly or erudite treatises of abstruse and abstract principles. He wrote in easy-to-understand simple language. His was the language of the heart. The force of his Experience took shape of a powerful fountain through his pen. His writings were more like a father speaking a few words of advice to his son, or a guru to his disciple.
He preached only that which he had practised to perfection. As such, his words had spiritual vibrations and force that will penetrate the hearts of the readers. His writings continue to guide and inspire many thousand of spiritual seekers even today. His books are always in good demand, and will continue to be in future also.

All about his life was a lesson for his disciples. All those who came in his contact found an invisible force leading to spiritual elevation.
Even during his own lifetime more than a hundred biographies were written on him, and more have come out afterwards also. There are many other organizations many of them being Yoga centers using his name to make monetary gain by exploiting the Sivananda name.
