Bhakti Yoga Sagar Volume VI consists of satsangs given by Swami Satyananda Saraswati during the Sita Kalyanam festivals in Rikhia, India, from 1998 to 2000. Sri Swamiji's love and respect for the divine Mother and all her children is transparently clear. His practical help to all needing spiritual guidance and particularly for the needy villagers, women, and those willing to dedicate their lives to God is heart warming. Through the Vedic and Tantric traditions of yajna, mantra repetition, seva and sharing wealth, he gives effective practices for the spiritual, social and ecological needs of today. Wisdom, humour and compassion combine in his message to the 21st century.
