Trained in Divine Love: My Life with Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda

Sale price$17.95

For fifty years, Nayaswami Anandi was a deeply devoted disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, and a student of his beloved disciple, Swami Kriyananda. To everyone she met, Anandi was a beautiful channel of divine love; her life’s quest was to reciprocate and express the pure love she received.

In this book, there are sacred and precious experiences and stories never shared before by Anandi. 

  • Part One contains stories of Swami Kriyananda, especially of how he helped Anandi perfect her divine love and attunement.
  • Part Two features excerpts from her personal correspondence with Yogananda which capture the intimate dialogue that develops between devoted disciple and guru.
  • Part Three includes accounts of Anandi’s remarkable passage to higher realms, and how she continues to visit and bless devotees on earth.

Trained in Divine Love is Anandi’s gift to the Divine in all of us – that we immerse ourselves completely in God’s perfect love and bliss.

Format: Paperback

Trained in Divine Love

This book gives insight into the life of a great, high minded devotee and her struggles, which gives us all hope. But it also provides another view of Swami Kriyananda, a most precious gift.

I enjoyed reading this gem. How beautiful it captures the Divine Love of such a sweet saint.

Susan Hayes

Still know nothing about Anandi after reading this book. She is as much of a cipher as when she was still alive.
