Our Attitude Has a Magnetic Power — All Things Are Equal (With Swami Kriyananda)
February 13, 2023
The Masters are interested in politics and the welfare of the world and individuals, Swami Kriyananda affirms.
He discusses the sixth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, stressing that one thing we need to learn is how to gain equanimity toward all things and all people, whether they are our relatives, friends, patrons, or enemies. This is not an easy thing to achieve, yet we must continue to work at it and surrender everything to God. In doing so, when we can remain positive and detach from results and outcomes, we will have the boons of divine protection and reassurance.
In this discussion Swami Kriyananda also mentions a few historical figures, including Adolf Hitler and Alexander the Great.
ABOUT SWAMI KRIYANANDA
In 1948 at the age of 22, 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
