What Others Are Saying
“I dipped into your book for a few minutes, and I haven't been able to stop reading.”
"Swami Kriyananda was a great and direct disciple of the well-known yoga master, Paramhansa Yogananda. In his book Stories of Swamiji, Richard Salva offers a glimpse into what it can mean to be a dedicated student of such a disciple. Although not personally close to Kriyananda, Richard was able to draw some of the deepest lessons from his thirty-eight years with him. A wonderful and delightful book with something instructive for everyone."
“A beautiful book, full of heart and good humor, that will appeal especially to students of Swami Kriyananda, and to many other sincere truth seekers as well. Paramhansa Yogananda wrote famously about the ‘search for ultimate verities and the concomitant disciple-guru relationship.’ Richard Salva shares an up-close view of his life of discipleship to Yogananda through one of Yogananda's greatest, direct disciples. He brings alive for the reader what it was like to spend many precious moments in the company of a true saint. His efforts to intuit, behind their outward interactions, their true, inner significance for him, and the ever-present challenge and joy of raising his consciousness to new levels in order to receive the great blessings being offered him: These will strike a chord in all readers who are searching for higher meaning in their own lives.”
