This talk was given at Ananda Pune (India) in the afternoon of a celebration of the anniversary of Swami Kriyananda’s discipleship to Paramhansa Yogananda. Nayaswami Dharmarajan serves as Co-Spiritual Director of Ananda Chennai.
Ananda’s founder, Swami Kriyananda, spends his time primarily in 3 countries: America, Italy, and India. As he recently quipped, “Well I have these  communities that I’ve started, and I have to check in every now and then.”

The essence of the celebration was captured by Barbara Bingham with her beautiful photos of Swamiji, the choir, and the crowd of celebrants. I too was able to “attend” Swamiji’s talks, thanks to the live video broadcast.
Today at the India International Centre (IIC) in Delhi, India, Swami Kriyananda launched his book, Hope for a Better World! (Links to the audio recordings are included.) Over 500 people attended!
Today Swami Kriyananda arrived back to his home in Gurgaon, India, just outside of Delhi. Swamiji had been away for about 10 months–his longest absence since moving to India. He spent that time getting needed rest and working on important projects (writings, interviews, lectures) in his homes in America and in Italy.
Swamiji doesn’t think of his “home” according to the common interpretation of the word….
