A Brief Biography

There is a peace and quietness surrounding Swami Kriyananda that give a hint of his spiritual nature.  

Many times I listened to him speak, and have always come away feeling refreshed and energized.  It is not only his lectures, teachings, and books that shed light on areas of darkness and confusion in people's lives.

Above all, it is the example of the man himself, the peace and calm that surround him, the spiritual power that emanates from him, pointing the way to each person's own inner path to enlightenment.

--John Harricharan, Body, Mind, & Spirit Magazine

Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) is known as one of the foremost spiritual luminaries of yogic teachings in the world today.  In 1948, at the age of twenty-two, he became a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, the Indian yoga master.

At Yogananda's request, Swami Kriyananda devoted his entire life to writing and lecturing, while assisting others in their own experiences of living in the presence of God within.  Kriyananda, also known as the' father of intentional communities movement,' has taken the ancient teachings of Raja Yoga around the world, establishing spiritual communities.  He had taught on four continents in seven languages over the course of over 60 years.  His audio and video recordings of his lectures and his music have touched and inspired the lives of millions of individuals. 

Ananda, which he founded in 1968 was the first of now nine communities worldwide.  They provide a supportive environment of 'simple living and high thinking' where over one thousand full-time residents live, work, and worship together.

"The time has come for people to live lives of even higher dedication than that which inspired monks and nuns of the past.  It is time to direct our spiritual awareness also into matter, into everything we do: work, education, family life, friendship, communications with strangers, the way we build our homes --to all the most mundane, practical aspects of daily human life.  People need to become God-centered from within, and from that center to see God everywhere, in everything." --Swami Kriyananda, Cities of Light
