A Way to Awakening, Episode 174
Swami Kriyananda
March 29, 2023

In this uplifting talk, Swami Kriyananda urges us to listen carefully and attentively not only to God’s still voice but to feel his infinite presence as well in all we do. Essentially, we will be watching and listening for our own higher guidance as God is all there truly is.  Kriyananda shares a few personal stories and speaks about the interconnectivity of all beings and their distinct individuality as well. Kriyananda explains that God uses and needs many channels for his expressions and speaks differently through each one. He also humorously reminds us that the more we try and please God, the more he will test us. These tests can actually be a good sign because as Kriyananda says, “it's a sign that you love him when he does take the trouble to help you clear up all your karma quickly.”


Swami Kriyananda reads and comments on his book "Conversations with Yogananda." TV series "A Way to Awakening" recorded in India. ABOUT SWAMI KRIYANANDA In 1948 at the age of twenty-two, Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) became a disciple of the Indian yoga master, Paramhansa Yogananda. Yogananda is best known for his spiritual classic, *Autobiography of a Yogi*. In his book he recalls his experiences growing up in India and his life in America. He writes of meeting the great spiritual master Babaji, and how Babaji reintroduced the life changing meditation technique of Kriya Yoga. He tells of his life with his guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, of his guru Lahiri Mahasaya, and his meeting with Anandamayi Ma. Yogananda moved to America and developed the energization exercises and taught the meditation techniques of Hatha Yoga and especially Kriya Yoga. #kriyananda #yogananda #ananda
