Faith Is My Armor
This is the story of a new kind of hero: a man who has achieved extraordinary victories in his life—not with weapons, but with moral and spiritual courage.
“Where are the heroes of today?” ask those who feel a yearning for examples of inspiring men and women after which to model our lives. The life of Swami Kriyananda is the story of a modern-day hero—a man who has, to an amazing degree, demonstrated spiritual courage, determination in the face of great obstacles, and personal sacrifice for an ideal.
Faith Is My Armor tells the complete story of his life: from his childhood in Rumania, to his desperate search for meaning in life, and to his training under his great Guru, the Indian Master, Paramhansa Yogananda. As a youth of 22, he first met and pledged his discipleship to Yogananda, entering the monastery Yogananda had founded in Southern California.
In the over sixty years since then, Swami Kriyananda traveled and lived around the world, lecturing in five languages, wrote 80 books and 400 pieces of music, and founded seven spiritual communities in the United States, Europe, and India.
It also recounts the drama of the powerful opposition and attacks he faced as he strove to fulfill the mission his Guru had bestowed upon him.
This book will bring inspiration and hope to all who read it, and renewed faith in the power of God in our lives.
