“Kriya Yoga in action is the name Swami Kriyananda chose for himself: joy through Kriya, joy through action. We are that crowd of souls that were drawn to Master through Swami Kriyananda’s discipleship. What are the qualities of Swami’s discipleship? Humility and lack of any sense of importance—the constant thought that this life is not meant to be lived solely for one’s own spiritual advancement, but also in service to others. He also showed deep loyalty and dedication to our Guru and his teachings, never wavering from that. There was not one of Swami’s talks that didn’t express the utmost dedication to Master and his teachings. He was trying to show us that although there are many paths, to advance spiritually you have to find one, and keep going with it deeper and deeper: This is the way to spiritual freedom.

“Most important of all was Swami’s love of Master and how he transferred that love to us. All these qualities were motivated by love offered from the depth of his being to Guru. He instilled that love in each of us. And now we can share it with those who come to us.

“So this day is a day well worth remembering and honoring. It’s a joy to share it with you all, and to be a part of this great wave that Master brought to this world, and that Swami brought to a focus for all of us.” —Nayaswami Devi

  1. Dear Nayaswami Jyotish Ji and Devi ji,
    Looking back, we feel how blessed we were to have Swamiji talk in Chennai that attracted many souls. We thank Swamiji for seeding the Chennai Centre, giving us wonderful Acharyas.
    Swamiji had shown the path to Masters teaching to many souls here.
    How to be a true disciple and to be attuned with our Guru always – Swamiji is a role model for us!
    The communities and the schools that Swamiji had found , this is a model of how to live and much needed for the time that we live.

    Happy Discipleship Day
