His work always centred on serving others: “Every type of work that served to heal and relieve human suffering filled me with great joy.” For him, service was “love in expression”.

This yoga of synthesis is the basis for the modern yoga practice in the West. In Rishikesh he trained many outstanding students, who would be instrumental in giving classical yoga the great reputation it now has throughout the world. In 1957, he instructed one of his closest disciples, Swami Vishnudevananda, “Go to the West. People are waiting” and sent him first to America and then to Europe to spread the teachings of yoga.
