A Tribute to Swami Kriyananda

May 19 - May 21

A Tribute to Swami Kriyananda
19 – 21 May 2017

“You have pleased me very much. I want you to know that.”—  Paramhansa Yogananda’s words to Swami Kriyananda, a few days before his Mahasamadhi in March, 1952.

Within Ananda meditation groups, centers and communities, Swami Kriyananda was much more than the founder and guiding light of Ananda. For countless thousands, he was like a father figure, and our dearest friend.  He’s also been our role model, in learning how to selflessly walk the paths of attunement and discipleship on our way back to the Divine.

In honor of Swami Kriyananda’s birthday anniversary (19th May), you’re invited to join us for this special weekend as we express our gratitude and love to this exemplary soul, who’s done so very much for us.
This Retreat weekend will include:

  • A Celebration of the life, legacy & works of Swami Kriyananda
  • Stories about Swamiji by Ananda Brahmacharis & Acharyas who lived & served with him
  • Practical lessons from Swamiji’s life about discipleship, attunement, prosperity & more
  • A brief tour of Swamiji’s house, including his private rooms
  • Many opportunities to meditate throughout Swamiji’s house
  • Swamiji’s powerful but rarely-practiced “Attunement Ceremony”
  • Videos of Swami Kriyananda
  • Birthday Cakes and more!
