Swami Kriyananda As We Have Known Him
Swami Kriyananda As We Have Known Him
Description
Back of the Book

"I feel more love from you that I do from my own family," a retreat guest said to Swamiji. "How is that possible? We are meeting for the first time. You don't even know me."

Thus begins one of almost two hundred stories about one of the most renowned spiritual teachers of our time, brought into clear focus by a true storyteller…

"Through this loving gathering of many hearts and voices, many will come to know not only the greatness of Swami Kriyananda, but also, through his example, the essence of the teachings of his Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda."-Nischala Joy Devi, author of The Healing Path of Yoga and The Secret Power of Yoga

"This book is a must for anyone even remotely interested in spirituality. Kriyananda has been an ideal disciple of a great Master."-D.R. Kaarthikeyan, Former Director, Central Bureau of Investigation (India), National Human Rights Commission

"A remarkable collection of personal stories that reveal Swami Kriyananda's inner character as a master teacher and spiritual guide."-The Rev. Canon Charles B. Atheson, Episcopal Priest (ret.)

"Swami Kriyananda is a wise teacher, whose words convey love and compassion. Read and listen, and allow your life to change."-Dr. Larry Dossey, author of Healing Words

"So many profoundly moving stories of selfless love, miraculous healings, adherence to dharma in the face of overwhelming challenges. No need to extrapolate spiritual lessons from a time and culture far different from our own. Here is a twentieth century American man who is also one of the most renowned spiritual teachers ofour time."Shanti Rubenstone, M.D., Formerly clinical Instructor, Stanford University School of Medicine

"To read this book is to spend intimate time in Swami Kriyananda's presence; afterwards it's impossible to look at life in the same way. One's understanding has been raised…to a higher sphere."-Richard Salva, author of Soul Journey:from Lincoln to Lindbergh

"The clarity, sincerity and devotion to God of Kriyananda leave you with a renewed commitment to spiritual living and a deeper understanding of how to do it sensibly." -John White, author, lecture, editor of Mind Expander

About the Author

Sometimes the course of a lifetime is determined by a single moment. For Asha Praver, it was her first meeting with Swami Kriyananda in November 1969 at a lecture he gave at Stanford University. Soon after, she moved to the fledgling Ananda community in Northern California where Swami Kriyananda lived, to study with him full-time.

Working closely with Swami Kriyananda ever since, Asha has served at various times as his cook, secretary and personal assistant as well as head of publications, marketing and public relations for Ananda. In the mid-1970s, Swami Kriyananda asked her to begin teaching and lecturing, first at Ananda's Meditation Retreat, and later throughout the United States.

Asha is a gifted storyteller and a much-respected teacher. Bringing together nearly forty years of close observation to detail (and copious note-taking), she shares with us here some of her most inspired moments with Swami Kriyananda, observed either in person or related to her by others, each one told with her unique blend of sensitive insight, courage and joy.

Asha and her husband David are the spiritual directors of Ananda in Palo Alto, California, where they have been teaching and serving the public since 1987. This is her first book.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
