This study provides an enumerative bibliography of the works attributed to Swami Sivananda Saraswati (1887-1963). Containing extensive bibliographic information not found elsewhere, this study can be utilized as either a central research tool or valuable resource for studies relating to Swami Sivananda across a great many research areas. This study provides considerable insight into the composition of Sivananda's literary corpus, while also raising important questions, such as the issue of authorship and corporate authorship within religious organizations and institutions of India and, more specifically, within the context of the guru-disciple relationship. The appendices include: Title Index, Titles by Series, Supplementary Sources, and Guru-Disciple Resources.
