    TKYP76 - Swami Nirvananda

    TKYP76 - Swami Nirvananda

    In this episode of The Kriya Yoga Podcast, I interview Swami Nirvananda. Our topics include:

    Swami Nirvananda describes his service working with leper communities.
    Swami discusses how he became a Swami, and his path to Kriya Yoga.
    Initiated by Swami Hariharananda.
    Meeting Kriya Yoga Teacher, Roy Eugene Davis.
    What is the difference between the Kriya lineages from Lahiri Mahasaya,  Sri Yukteswar and Yogananda?
    Did Lahiri Mahasaya give the same Kriya technique to everyone?
    The Gayatri Mantra.
    How can we become more devotional?
    How to be of service, even when we are struggling ourselves?
    Advice for beginner’s of Kriya Yoga.
    How to stay engaged in the practice for Advanced Kriya Yoga?
    How to trust yourself spiritually.

    "A swami is a monk who renounces worldly pursuits in favor of a spiritual life of simplicity and service. Merging the teachings of Kriya Yoga with the devotional aspect of Bhakti Yoga and the charitable path of Karma Yoga, Swami Nirvanananda expresses unity in the diversity of many paths and religions, all leading to the same goal: Universal Love and Oneness with Spirit."

    TKYP75 - How Kriya Yoga Leads to Samadhi (The Ultimate Purpose of Yoga)

    TKYP75 - How Kriya Yoga Leads to Samadhi (The Ultimate Purpose of Yoga)

    The greatest power of Kriya Yoga is to give the direct experience of Samadhi.  Every step of Yoga practice is important to contribute to this experience.  In this episode, we talk about tips, pointers and indicators that can help lift your Kriya Yoga practice from a basic relaxation routine to a dynamic tool for experiencing a state of Oneness.  

    Much of this conversation is a continuation of an earlier podcast done with Zoe Mae, a Sanskrit teacher. The Most Important Siddhi - The Kriya Yoga Podcast Episode 50 (podbean.com) Thanks to her work and the work of Vyaas Houston of the American Sanskrit Institute we have so much accessible knowledge about how the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali inform us about the process of Samadhi.  Thank you Zoe and Vyaas.
