Swami Satya Prakash Saraswati

Svami Satya a Prakasha Sarasvati, D.Sc., F.A.Sc, was an Ex. Prof. and head of the chemistry department of the Allahabad University. He was a Sanyasin and also a Rotarian. Being an admirer of Maharshi Dayananda Sarasvati, he had a desire from his early boyhood of becoming a Sanyasin, which he became by entering into the order of the Sanyasin on May 10, 1971. His canonisation to this order took place in the University campus and the high priest in the segment was none other than Dr. Babu Ram Saksena, the vice Chancellor of the University. He was brought up in the traditions of the Arya Samaj, which stood for the Oriental ideals.

Svami Satya Prakash Sarasvati is the editor and author of commentary for a complete edition of the ancient Hindu religious text the Rig Veda. His many other published works cover topics of Hinduism influenced by Swami Dayananda Saraswati's Arya Samaj reform movement.
