From the early years, devotees of Sri Swami Sivananda and Pujya Swamiji in Gauteng (then Transvaal) have been conducting Satsangs at the homes of devotees, in classrooms, etc. The Gauteng branch of the Divine Life Society of S.A. was formed in the early 1990's.

In 2002, Pujya Swamiji opened an Ashram in Gauteng, called Sivananda Yoga Centre. It is located in the south of Johannesburg in Zakariyya Park, Lenasia. A beautiful shrine and Ganga Rani (water fountain consecrated with holy Ganga water) adorns the Prayer Hall. 

Activities at the Centre include Ganga Arati, Satsangs, grocery hamper distribution, dissemination of spiritual literature, youth events, Yoga Retreats and Sunday School for Spiritual Darlings (children). The Branch has grown considerably, and celebrates major events in the Hindu and Divine Life Society calendar.

The weekly Sunday School, in particular, has been an attraction for parents who wish to ensure that their children lead a path of righteousness and maintain their Hindu Dharma in the current age of Kali Yuga. With little access to the wisdom of previous generations, spiritual and religious guidance is quite often a challenge faced by parents residing in Gauteng. At the Divine Life Society Ashram, parents attend Satsang while their children are spiritually moulded and educated. 

In addition to the main Satsang which takes place at the Ashram on a Sunday from 9:40am - 12pm, the branch also conducts Satsang on Tuesday evenings in Sandton, north of Johannesburg from 7 - 8pm. For more information on the Gauteng Branch of Divine Life Society of S.A contact Kuben Thavar ‪082 600 0079‬
