Here are some two hundred personal stories — many deeply touching, some miraculous — about Swami Kriyananda, a spiritual teacher whose life and teachings have been a light for seekers around the world.

Light of Prayer

[Listen to Asha read this story]

On the altar in his meditation room, Swamiji keeps a list of all those who have asked for his prayers. When he meditates, he asks God to bless these souls, and all those who have appealed to him for help.

A chronically ill man, whose name was on that list, took several treatments from a gifted psychic healer.

“Suddenly, in the middle of a session,” the healer said, “I saw a powerful white light within him. I had never encountered anything like it before. Somehow I knew it was the light of Swamiji’s prayer.”

Later it was confirmed that the time of the treatment was the same time that Swamiji was in his meditation room, meditating and praying.
