Episode 23: Integrity

Swami Kriyananda

Integrity is “supremely important,” says Swami Kriyananda. It means to be true to yourself, and to be true in your statements, but in a helpful way. “Truth is always beneficial.”

Questions include:

  • What is integrity, and how important is it?
  • What if you are supposed to give something to someone, but your suppliers let you down?
  • Is there a power that comes from always speaking the truth?
  • If I’m obliged to fight in a war, I may be called upon to kill someone to help defend my country. Is that still OK?
  • What other habits, like being truthful, would help us?

Ask Me About Truth

Swami Kriyananda answers questions about truth and many spiritual subjects, as he learned about them directly from Paramhansa Yogananda. (These talks were recorded in 2012, before Swami Kriyananda's passing.)
