More important even than love, in your behavior toward others, are your respect and loyalty.

In love there may be attachment or desire, but in respect and loyalty there is only self-giving.

“In Joy We Live” Blog Post from Nayswami Devi

Read “Paramhansa Yogananda’s Mahasamadhi” from Faith is My Armour by Nayaswami Devi


“Donald Walters [Swami Kriyananda] was with his Guru at Mt. Washington during Paramhansa Yogananda’s last days before his mahasamadhi on March 7, 1952. On March 2, while they were alone together in the Master’s study, Yoganandaji gazed into his disciple’s eyes with deep love and said to him, ” You have pleased me very much. I want you to know that.” These few, simple words were etched in the disciple’s heart, filling him with lasting joy and gratitude. He knew he’d always done his best, but how little had that best seemed to him! That his Guru was pleased even with that little was a great comfort to him. Often—this was his chief karmic weakness—he had doubted his own worthiness.

This happened one time when Devi and I were with Swami Kriyananda in, of all places, a shopping mall in Sacramento, California. He had gotten a letter from someone who was discouraged after comparing his own accomplishments to those of Swamiji’s. (Aside: Comparing ourselves to great souls is fruitless and should come with a warning label: “Do not try this at home.”)

Swamiji’s response was very instructive. He said, “People shouldn’t be discouraged. They need to understand that I’ve just been at it a little longer. Everyone will find God in the end.” …(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)

Moksha Mandir1Dear Ones…

It may seem paradoxical, but there is evidence everywhere these days that our beloved Swami Kriyananda is more actively in our lives now than even before his soul’s liberation a
few months ago. He is clearly without limitation in his ability to guide and help us. (read the rest of this letter…)
