Preface

The author first published the Biography of a Yogi ( Swami Satyananda Giri) in 1985 on Guru Purnima ( guru full Moon) to honor the request of some Kriyanwits seekers. It is a part of a series of biographies of Kriya that include:

1. Babaji Volume 1: The Divine Himalaya Yogi.

2. Babaji Volume 2: Lahiri Mahasy.

3. Babaji Volume 3: The Masters of Original Kriya (included is the biography of Kebalananda Maharaj),

4. The Divine Incarnation of Panchanan) Bhattacharya, The chief Disciple of Lahiri Mahasay (this 864 page volume includes excerpts from all of Bhattacharya’s works), and 5. Sriyukteswar: A Biography.

Swami Satyananda Giri was the principal disciple in India of Swami Sriyukteswar Giri who selected him to be leader of the East. The author first met Swami Satyananda at Yogoda Sat Sanga Hermitage, where the author had come to stay as a resident student for eight years and where there were many other Kriya yogis. Swami Satyananda was one of the founding members and the founder executive general secretary of Yogoda Sat Sanga Society of India (Y.S.S.) and he laid the foundation stone of that asram. Thus, he used to visit this hermitage every year for two or three days. From that time onwards, the author came to be very closely associated with Satyananda and in the last twenty years of satyananda’s life the author helped him with all of his activities, activities which has been thrust upon Satyananda as the leader of the East by Sriyukteswar.

The reader will find in this book many hitherto untold stories about Satyananda and will learn about his fascinating friendship , his personal growth, the relationship between the Master and his disciples and how Satyananda’s students grew to serve the world community.

This revised and enlarged second edition is divided into two volumes: 1. Swami Satyananda and his complete works. 2. Yogananda Sanga by Swami Satyananda. In this volume, Swami Satyeshwarananda, the present author has added his own writing chapter 5,6,7,8,10 and 11.

The author hopes that this edition will serve the kriyanwits and Kriyanwitas, the followers of Kriya Practitioners

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
