Born in 1908 to devoted parents at Alaveddi in Ceylon, Sri Ponniah, as he was known in his Purvashram, left for Malaya in 1925 and lived in his adopted country till his death. Even while he was working, he was actively participating in the cultural, spiritual and religious activities in Kuala Lumpur, notably of the Vivekananda Ashram, Theosophical Society, Malayan Arulneri Thirukootam and the Divine Life Society of which latter he was the president for over seven years.
In 1959, while at the D.L.S. Headquarters at Rishikesh, he was initiated into the monastic order by Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj himself. Interestingly enough, when Sri Ponniah became H.H. Sri Swami Pranavananda Saraswati, he was still in service, an administrative assistant in the Rubber Research Institute of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, in which post he continued till his retirement in 1963.
He was nominated to the Board of Management of the D.L.S. in 1958 and made a patron of the Society in 1963. H.H. Sri Swami Pranavananda Saraswati, who was a paradigm of perfection in his secular and spiritual life, entered into eternal rest in 1982 March, leaving an unbridgeable gap in the spiritual fraternity in general and Divine Life fraternity in particular.
