NAYASWAMI ANANDI CORNELL
For fifty years, Nayaswami Anandi was a deeply devoted disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, and of his beloved disciple, Swami Kriyananda. To everyone she met, Anandi was a beautiful channel of divine love; her life’s quest was to reciprocate and to express the pure love she received in such abundance from Sri Yogananda (1893–1952) and from Swamiji (1926–2013). Anandi left her body on January 30, 2022. The physical cause was angiosarcoma, a rare and aggressive cancer. For the previous forty-one years she shared a joyful soul marriage and life of service, often focused on lecturing and writing. At the time of her passing her husband found her unfinished manuscript describing her vibrant inner life with Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda.
