My Heart Remembers Swami Kriyananda
Author: Narayani Anaya
A remarkable story of devotion and attunement between a young devotee and a spiritual master.
Narayani was 24 when she first met Swami Kriyananda in 2003. He was 77, a global teacher and foremost disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. Recognition was immediate. Her heart declared, “My King!” He said, “She seems like a daughter to me.” Soon she began following Swami around the world — India, America, Europe. In 2010 he asked her to become his personal assistant and caregiver. Since that day on, and literally, until his last breath, Narayani was always by his side. Decades of spiritual training were compressed into a few short years, preparing her to carry his spirit and message of Self-realization to her generation of seekers, and to all who would know God.
