Who Are Jyotish and Devi?

Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi are dynamic emissaries of Paramhansa Yogananda, and Global Peace Ambassadors.

As Spiritual Directors of Ananda, and living examples of spiritual values in action, Jyotish and Devi travel the world, sharing Yogananda’s teachings, and blessing people with the practical and heart-opening path of Kriya Yoga.

Swami Kriyananda, Ananda’s founder, designated Jyotish as his spiritual successor.
