Venkatesananda Saraswati (29 December 1921 in Tanjore, South India–2 December 1982 in Johannesburg, South Africa), known previously as Parthsarathy, was a disciple of Sivananda Saraswati. He received his spiritual training at the Divine Life Society in Rishikesh, India, and disseminated his master's teachings in South Africa, Mauritius, Australia, and New Zealand.

Venkatesananda said that he had been specially commissioned by his master, Sivananda, to spread the gospel of goodness – the four words: “Be good, do Good”.
