Editor’s Letter

by Nayaswami Naidhruva

Dear Friends,

As we near the end of 2013, we are pleased to offer articles that respond to common spiritual interests and needs. Swami Kriyananda’s lead article, “Are Self-Definitions Holding You Back?” clarifies a very important subject, and gives many examples of how easy it is to adopt limiting self-definitions, despite our best intentions.

“Resurrect Your Mind from Mental Laziness,” by Paramhansa Yogananda urges us to break through our inner resistances and to meet whatever challenges we now face by making full use of the unlimited mental power implanted in us as souls.

On a different note, two other articles offer inspiring accounts of God’s loving assistance in time of need. “Miracles and Answered Prayers,” excerpted from Asha Praver’s new book, presents true stories of divine intervention when we remember to ask for help — and sometimes even when we forget.

Similarly, Mary Kretzmann’s interview shares not only key turning points in her evolution as a healer, but also her experiences of God’s readiness to heal illnesses and remove obstacles, when karmically appropriate.

Please don’t overlook this year’s Christmas gift — Swami Kriyananda’s beautiful slide show, “Different Worlds,” which includes photos sensitively depicting the many levels of consciousness in people throughout the world.

Our blessings are with you as we move forward into the New Year.

With joy,

Nayaswami Naidhruva

    Thank you for editing and compiling these inspiring articles and for making them so easy to print. Now I can and do, print out articles I want to share with others who don’t tend to read articles online.
    Namaste, Laura

    I first met Swami Kriyananda in Seattle in 1993 when he was speaking at an event which featured five different authors. I went to the event specifically to hear him speak, as I had been a member of SRF since 1966, and was aware of who he was.

    The stage had a dark blue curtain for a background. When Swami Kriyananda came on stage he was wearing a white suit. Almost immediately I could see a large golden aura emanating from him. It was gorgeous. Above his head it came to a point. I described it as a crown to the friend who was with me.

    Of course, I had to meet him after that experience. I’ve been a member of the Ananda community since that time. I hosted a meditation group led by John Lente for awhile, but I’m mostly alone in my spiritual practices now. This digital magazine is a link I will appreciate very much.

    It was an interesting “coincidence” that the very next day, in a book I was reading about the Dali Lama, the aura of a saint was described as a beautiful golden flame. What I had seen the day before fit that description perfectly.
