In 1920 one of India’s great spiritual emissaries, Paramhansa Yogananda (author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi) arrived in America to share a fresh and dynamic expression of the ancient Indian tradition of Yoga. In 1948, J. Donald Walters – later to be know as Swami Kriyananda – arrived at the Master’s ashram to become a disciple. Since Yogananda’s passing in 1952 Swami Kriyananda has become recognized around the world as one of Paramhansa Yogananda’s foremost direct disciples.

This is the story of a “next generation” disciple’s view experience with Swami Kriyananda, the path of Self-Realization, and life in the early years of Ananda Village – a spiritual community based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
