As we celebrate this week the birth anniversary of Swami Kriyananda, founder of Ananda Sangha, and our dearest friend and guide, we are delighted to invite you in-person for a new inspirational series ‘Conversations with Yogananda’.

Origin
Around the year 2006, Swami Kriyananda recorded 365 episodes of 20 minutes each which were aired on national television in India. In these episodes, Swami Kriyananda narrated many priceless conversations he had with his Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, during the last three and a half years of Yogananda’s life. These episodes are full of wisdom, humour and fascinating, little-known stories shared by Yogananda that touch upon every conceivable aspect of human life.

Blessing of Babaji
There is also a marvellous story of divine blessing connected with the recording of these TV episodes. This story was told to Swami Kriyananda by a young Indian man who had come to see him in Gurgaon around the time the episodes were being recorded. The man had been wandering deep in the woods, as he often did, when he heard a voice say, ‘Follow me.’ After a time, a person revealed himself, and it was Babaji, the deathless Himalayan master. Babaji told the man, ‘I have prolonged Swami Kriyananda’s life. I am very pleased with the work he is doing. Especially the television shows.’

About this Series
Every week, starting this Saturday, we will gather together to watch one of these deeply inspiring episodes. We will meditate briefly to inwardly assimilate the insights gained from that week’s conversation, then go around the room and have a group discussion around the theme of that episode.

Through these conversations, we will have the rare opportunity to understand many subtle aspects of the spiritual path and to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our life’s true meaning and purpose.

All are welcome.

Venue: Ananda Sangha Delhi, N-100 Panchsheel Park
