After study at agricultural college, he worked in a family business. At the age of 23 he became a manager at India's National Electric Works. He married and had two sons. He briefly served with the Indian defense forces and was a WW2 veteran who saw combat. His wife died five years after their marriage.
After the sudden death of his wife, Ramaswamy travelled throughout India, meditating at holy shrines and studying with revered spiritual teachers.
He discovered his Guru, Sivanand Sarasvati founder of the Divine Life Society and a former physician, who ordained him into the holy order of sanyasa in 1949 and gave him the name Satchidananda Saraswati.
After serving his guru for many years, in 1966 he visited New York City. Soon after his initial visit Satchidananda formally moved to the United States, and eventually became a citizen. From his new home he spread his teachings of yoga, selfless service, ecumenism and enlightenment.
On 19 August 2002, Satchidananda Saraswati died after speaking at a peace conference in Chennai.
