MEJOR LIBRO ESPIRITUAL DEL AÑO
Eric Hoffer Award * USA book News

Publicado ininterrumpidamente desde hace más de 35 años y traducido a 14 idiomas, este libro ha conquistado a miles de lectores de todo el mundo como una guía fundamental para el sendero del crecimiento y la búsqueda interior. Nos ofrece el ejemplo y las enseñanzas de dos de las mayores guías espirituales de nuestro tiempo, el gran maestro indio Paramhansa Yogananda, autor del best-seller Autobiografía de un yogui, y su discípulo directo Swami Kriyananda, considerado uno de los máximos exponentes contemporáneos del yoga en Occidente.

El fascinante relato de las experiencias de Kriyananda junto a este gigante espiritual, representa la continuación natural de la Autobiografía de Yogananda. La búsqueda personal de un joven sediento de Verdad, con sus desafíos y sus preguntas – que son también las nuestras – nos da valor y guía en nuestro propio camino. Sobre este fondo, página tras página, descubrimos episodios de la vida de Yogananda que nos iluminan, descritos como sólo un discípulo directo puede hacerlo, y enseñanzas universales, lecciones prácticas y preciosos consejos para el buscador espiritual de cualquier sendero.

Esta nueva edición, completamente revisada por el autor, contiene historias inéditas de la vida de Yogananda. Además se han introducido nuevas perspectivas sobre los temas tratados, que convierten esta edición en una auténtica “autobiografía de un yogui occidental”.

Swami Kriyananda

Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters), who left his body in 2013, was a direct disciple of the great master, Paramhansa Yogananda, and an internationally known author, lecturer, and composer. Widely recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on meditation and yoga, he taught these principles and techniques to hundreds of thousands of students around the world.

In 1968, Kriyananda founded Ananda Village in Nevada City, California, dedicated to spreading the spirit of friendship, service, and community around the globe. Ananda is recognized as one of the most successful intentional communities in the world; over 1,000 people reside in Ananda communities in the US, India, and Italy. The European retreat and community located in Assisi, Italy, also serves Ananda meditation groups in Europe and Russia.

Ananda Village is also home to The Expanding Light, a world-renowned guest retreat facility where thousands of visitors annually visit for renewal or instruction in many aspects of meditation, yoga, and the spiritual life. The nearby Ananda Meditation Retreat, located on Ananda's first property, functions both as a retreat and as the site for Ananda's Institute of Alternative Living.

An advocate of simple living and high thinking, Swami Kriyananda's more than 140 books cover a wide range of subjects emphasizing the need to live wisely by one's own experience of life, and not by abstract theories or dogmas.

A composer since 1964, Kriyananda wrote over 400 musical works. His music is inspiring, soothing, and uplifting. Many of his later albums are instrumental works with brief affirmations or visualizations. Chuck Dilberto, of Awareness Magazine wrote, "[His] words and music are full of his life and light. His sole intention is to heal, something we could all use during these chaotic times."

Through Crystal Clarity Publishers, his works have sold over 3 million copies worldwide and have been translated into over 25 languages.
