Spiritual Renewal Weekend (SRW)-27-29 November:
All India Ananda Sangha Gathering Featuring Ananda Worldwide Spiritual Directors Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

Spiritual Renewal Weekend is a time to recharge, renew and uplift your spiritual practices—meditation, yoga, chanting, energisation exercises—and to have satsang with other truth-seekers on the path. This program, started by Swami Kriyananda, nearly 50 years ago at Ananda USA, has become one of the highlights of the year for many devotees and truth-seekers.

“In Joy We Live” Blog Post from Nayswami Devarshi

Read: “Made in the Image of God—Overcoming Challenges” by Nayaswami Devarshi

maxresdefaultA friend of mine was going through an extremely difficult series of tests, challenges and karma, when she had an interview with Swami Kriyanandaji.

You might ask yourself the question, “If I were going through the most challenging period of my life, and had an interview with a saint, what would I ask him?” It would be natural to ask for help to remove some of the karma, or an understanding as to why those things are happening in one’s life.

My friend went for the interview with similar thoughts.

(Paramhansa Yogananda’s comment was, “There are no masters living there.” Then he added, intriguingly, “There have been colonists. However, no masters.”)…(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)

Daily Inspiration

No calamity will shake you if you stand calmly and firmly at your own center.

“Be able,” as my Guru said, “to stand unshaken amid the crash of breaking worlds!”

f you offer your heart’s feelings up in devotion to God, fear will pass overhead like a cloud, and you will be enveloped in bliss.
