[The Nayaswami Order] gave me the opportunity to make a commitment that I have yearned to make formally for a long time. . . . Already I feel my life changing and my consciousness expanding.
I consider joining the new Renunciate Order to be one of the most important steps in my life. . . . The vow has brought more color, dimension, and texture to the tapestry of my spiritual efforts.
These vows can be taken by a person of any religious faith, uniting our efforts to bless and uplift every being on this planet.
Swami Kriyananda has opened a door that I never thought would be available. . . . Since taking vows I have felt more acutely Gods grace in my life. What great blessings have come!
Nayaswami Kriyananda has given all of us the spiritual tools and guidance in this new Renunciate Order to transcend our little egos. I have felt a deep connection to the spiritual power, magnetism, and bliss behind this initiation.
Since taking the Tyagi vow, I feel a sense of contentment and freedom. There is no need to worry anymore, but only to keep trying to be ever more centered in God.
I feel such joy that keeps me connected to the Divinity within.
After I took my . . . vows, . . I felt a real energy shift in my core. My heart feels open all of the time, and I accept judgment by others dispassionately as given to me by God for my spiritual growth and highest good. My only goal in life now is to please God alone.
Since taking the . . . vow, I feel more relaxed and self-accepting, yet with a more sincere dedication to finding God and serving the Gurus work as best as I can.
There is an ever-new, ever-increasing inner joy that I have been able to tap into at will since that very special day. . . . Ill never forget . . . the power and the softness during the ceremony. Just thinking about that magical, mystical moment brings tears to my eyes.
Religion often begins young, and ends up old and grey, but this Nayaswami Order has been colorfully created by the ever-free and fresh spirit of Swami Kriyananda.
The renunciate vows given by Swami Kriyananda have greatly helped me re-focus on the Divine Goal. Its like finding a new, more detailed roadmap. I have felt very spiritually encouraged by the vow, which I embrace with all my heart.
Over time I began to notice that I was more settled, joy was my frequent companion. I felt empowered to change, and became aware of a strength in the core of my being.
During the ceremony . . . tears filled my eyes. I felt reverence and gratitude as well as the strength and conviction that living my life for God is truly the only reason Im here on this planet.
My experience during the ceremony was one of extraordinary lightness. I felt a blessing coming from another plane of existence and an assurance that this was right for me. I knew that God was there to help me, and that it would be no burden.
Since formally taking the Nayaswami vow . . . I can sincerely say that I feel changed forever, uplifted, and strengthened in my determination to live for God alone.
The words of the vows of the Order are imbued with spiritual power. I have found that my vow as a Nayaswami is helping me untangle my Self from the post of ego. I find that I am ever more focused on God in my heart.
My heart is filled with joy at the vast potential for freedom in this sacred order.
Taking the Nayaswami vow has shone a spotlight in my consciousness upon who I really am, what my only purpose in life is: to seek God and to serve as His channel of blessing to all.
This vow has a power that inspires greater devotion than I have known before. As it has strengthened my will, it has lifted my spirit as well.
The evening I took my vows, I felt such joy in my heart, the deepest joy I have ever experienced. I feel Gods presence guiding and uplifting me, and I know [it all] comes from Gods hand.
The new Renunciate Order has given energy and focus to my spiritual life and deepened my commitment to God and Guru.
The vows . . . brought more strength and power into my life, along with a feeling that God and Guru were closer than ever. Since the vows, I feel that same strength within me, lifting me up, encouraging me to meet all challenges that come in life.
The bliss that radiated from Swamiji as he initiated each person, and the deep love in his eyes for each soul who came before him, were indescribable. One felt the perfection of Gods love, and the radiance and deep spiritual vibrations that are emanating from it now are touching everyone.
While [the vows] are uniquely personal on a day-to-day, moment-by-moment level, their power is greatly magnified by the fact that they speak to souls of any path who want to live for God Alone.
In my mind I was not sure that I was qualified to take the Vow of Complete Renunciation, but my heart told me it was the right thing to do. . . . Soon [after taking the vow] I was awed by waves of powerful blessings flowing in all aspects of my life.
What the Nayaswami Renunciate vows mean to me is the freedom to seek the deepest relationship with God of which I am capable.
There is an amazing grace that comes with the taking of this vow.
Every morning when I review the vow and dedicate myself anew to trying to bring these beautiful ideals more and more into my daily life, I feel a growing happiness and freedom.
I feel a much deeper devotion, and feel Gods presence in my life more deeply. I love the freedom I have felt in releasing so many . . . attachments . . . to things and the results of my actions.
I woke up out of a deep sleep, sat up in bed and announced . . . Im going to take . . . the Nayaswami vow! The whole focus of my life switched instantaneously and dramatically. My consciousness shifted. Everything around me seemed brighter and clearer.
Swamijis inspiration to start this new Order in [St. Franciss Assisi] was so perfect. This is not a sectarian order, but a guideline that all devotees can use for understanding and deepening their own journey along the spiritual path.
I believe this ceremony has [the] power to transform lives.
There is tremendous spiritual power in the Nayaswami Order, and people have experienced deep blessings that have completely transformed their consciousness after inwardly embracing the vows of the Order. . . . Virtually every sincere seeker who has joined the Order has reported . . . transformative changes in his life.
