    Dear Respected Swamiji,

    I feel lot of happiness on your Birthday! Please accept my heart-felt wishes on your birthday.

    I just keep on wondering on your multifaceted personality and your humble services on Yoganadaji’s teachings. I always make it a point to listen to one of your discourses before going to sleep. It gives me a lot of insight into the life. I would like to meet you when I visit India in Jan or Feb of the 2011. Right now I am working in Seychelles.

    I humbly salute you for your untiring works and your ambition to spread Kriya Yoga in India, the homeland of Yoganandaji.

    Best Wishes Sir,

    I remain,

    Swamiji, I feel I’ve been karmically guided to find you and Ananda. I live in Michigan and have only been in California three times, but one of those times was July 4, 1969, when you signed the papers to purchase the Ananda property. I was 13 and still have my Disneyland 4th of July flag pin from that day. Our paths may cross again, but in the meantime, I thank you for the Ananda website and helping me find my true home with master…and may you continue to guide lost souls home!

    We pray that you remain with us forever and ever, guiding and leading us towards God-consciousness.

    When I read The Path, most mornings, I open a page at random, and find that something therein applies to my current situation and it invariably offers a solution.

    I wish I could meet you, God willing, I will.

    I am a humble follower and a devotee of Sri Devadas Rao, my Guruji, Shree Shakti Darshan Ashram, Kinnigoli, Karnataka State.

    Dear swamiji,
    iam new to your fold of kriyayoga.i came to know you through your work “Revelations of christ” book,which is given to me by my friend Mr.Geet about three weeks back.I am going through the book. However,though it is bit difficult for a lay man like me to understand the purpose of the creation (MAYA) before,now & in future, the word SANAATANA DHARMA is making me more inquisitive. I wish let SANAATANA DHARMA prevail and souls,who are striving steadfastly for it live long.

  108. Jagrav says:

    Happy Birthday Swamiji :)
    I’m reading “The Time Tunnel” and enjoy the way the book is presented. Your interpretation of what happened in Egypt is very insightful. In all I’ve heard about the pyramids, I’ve never come across that idea before (of advanced beings using the pyramid to broadcast blessings). It just shows how you are a channel for new ideas, not based on what’s been thought before.
    Love and Blessings,
    Jagrav

  149. Paul Davis says:

    Dear Swamiji,

    Many years ago I had a dream in which a man was reading a letter dictated for me by Guruji. It instructed me to explore your work and Ananda as both would help me to deepen my attunement with Yoganandaji and get me past a rather dry spell I was having in my spiritual life.

    I was quite new on the path back then and remember being very rigid and resisting the idea – “Who is this Donald Walters fellow?!” I remember thinking as I bought your audio recording of Autobiography of a Yogi.

    That was ten years ago and I am very greatful to that dream, to Ananda and of course to your good self for the years of inspiration, sound advice and joy which have flowed to me through your many books and recordings.

    My life has been all the richer for your words of wisdom and just knowing you are there, somewhere in the world, always makes me smile.

    God bless you and may you enjoy a Very Happy Birthday!

  150. Debbie says:
