VividLife Radio’s Kristen White welcomes Swami Kriyananda, to discuss his years with Yogananda
In 1948 Swami Kriyananda found Yogananda’s now famous Autobiography of a Yogi in New York City, and the next day left on a bus to meet the saint who he felt “was the truest friend I had ever known.” Responding to an irresistible longing in his heart, Kriyananda said to Yogananda, “I want to be your disciple.” This was the most important moment in Kriyananda’s life. At Yogananda’s request, Swami Kriyananda has devoted his life to lecturing and writing, helping others to experience the living presence of God within. He has taught on four continents in seven languages over the course of over 60 years. His teaching, audio and video recordings of his talks and music, and his many books translated into 28 languages have touched the lives of millions.
Swami Kriyananda has taken the ancient teachings of Raja Yoga and made them practical and immediately useful for people in every walk of life. His books and teachings on spiritualizing nearly every field of human endeavor include business life, leadership, education, the arts, community, and science. He has written extensive commentaries on and the Bhagavad Gita, both based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. swamikriyananda.org
