Paramhansa Yogananda lived (1893-1952) through two world wars. He taught yoga, meditation, and practical ways to uplift consciousness in the U.S. during a time of great upheaval-World War II. Like Buddha, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama, Yogananda taught universal spiritual truths. His best-selling book, Autobiography of a Yogi, sparked a spiritual revolution of yoga and meditation in the West.
If you could talk to Yogananda today, what would he say about the challenges we face? Today's special guests, Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi, are dynamic emissaries of Yogananda, bringing his teachings into focus for today and shine light on the real solution for today's anxiety: raising our consciousness.
Authors and teachers, who sparkle with wisdom and delightful humor, Jyotish and Devi show us how to experience joy daily, without succumbing to the stresses from our modern lives. Each year they travel to Europe, India and through North America sharing Yogananda's teachings and blessing people with the practical and heart-opening path of Kriya Yoga.
Touching each person with friendship, Jyotish and Devi's clear, centered energy delivers spiritual insight with a delightful joy in people's individual paths. They offer a rare example of successful spiritual partnership, living yogic values through their marriage, parenting, and organizational leadership.
Jyotish and Devi exemplify the most honorable and effective qualities of Westerners who represent Eastern spiritual traditions: faithful emissaries of Yogananda and his lineage and respectful of the social customs where they teach; able to adapt ancient teachings to the modern world without distorting or diluting them.
