Sannyasa is a universal tradition representing the original thoughts of humanity. Sannyasa Darshan covers the ancient and modern sannyasa tradition of renunciation and dedication to spiritual life.

This book discusses the sannyasa lineage, including the origins of sannyasa, the ashrama system, and stages of sannyasa, traditional rules and requirements, as well as the modern concept of sannyasa as it has evolved and is being lived today. Detailed accounts of the life, work and teachings of four major pathfinders in the sannyasa lineage: Sage Dattatreya, Adi Shankaracharya, Swami Sivananda and Swami Satyananda Saraswati are also presented.

Translations of five Sannyasa Upanishads: Kundikopanishad, Bhikshukopanishad, Avadhootopanishad, Paramahamsa Parivrajak-opanishad and Nirvanopanishad (with commentary by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati) comprise the final section of the book.
