The New Path: My Life with Paramhansa Yogananda

Love them in His name! Everyone is looking for the same thing, regardless of background or religion. We want internal and eternal bliss--to cease from our struggles and simply be who we are. Author Swami Kriyananda (pronounced "kree-ya-NAHN-da") joins LavenderRose on We Are One in Spirit Podcast today to give insight on how to move toward finding bliss in the divine union with our Creator.

A prolific and internationally regarded author, speaker, accomplished composer, playwright, artist, and world-renowned spiritual teacher, Swami Kriyananda refers to himself simply as “a humble disciple” of the great spiritual leader Paramhansa Yogananda. And indeed that humility is the most striking aspect of a man widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost wisdom teachers and authorities on meditation and yoga, and the last disciple of Yogananda still teaching in public life. It was in meeting Yogananda at the age of 22, that Kriyananda, then J. Donald Walters, found his path.  Swami Kriyananda, 84, continues to lecture around the world on spiritual matters, in particular the teachings of his Master.

Swami Kriyananda is the author of The New Path: My Life with Paramhansa Yogananda.  He recreates the vibrancy of his guru's presence, remembers Yogananda's words with perfect clarity, and communicates to the reader the depth of their meaning. Through Kriyananda's eyes and words, you'll be transported into Yogananda's immediate presence as you learn the highest yogic teachings.

There are more than 1,000 people living in Ananda communities in Nevada City Assisi, Italy, and India. These self-sustaining communities offer a sense of family and like-mindedness where each person supports and encourages the other members on their paths to bliss.

Are you happy with your job? 
Are you happy with your life?
