Publisher's Summary

In the early 1970s, Swami Kriyananda asked Asha to start taking notes for the book he knew she would someday write. He explained himself to her in a way he did to only a few others. Since then, she has stayed in constant contact with him, as a devotee, friend, personal assistant, and eventually, a spiritual teacher in her own right.

It's a rare gift to live with a true teacher. Experience it for yourself, as Asha brings you into meetings, conversations, personal counseling, living rooms, classrooms, long walks, meetings, and meditations.

Swami's life was a triumphant life, but not an easy one. Plagued by ill-health, financial challenges, and years of bitter estrangement from fellow disciples, his life story is told in the struggle as well as the victory. A great soul incarnates to awaken faith in our own spiritual potential. Asha writes, "A great wave of Divine Light is sweeping over the planet. If you tune in to that Light, you, too, will become an instrument of that Light."

This first-hand account of life with Swami Kriyananda is more than a biography. It's a guidebook for spiritual living, a path of light that all may follow. And it's a labor of love by Asha that has been 44 years in the making.

Amazing!

Asha tells Swami’s story with such insight and devotion. It was an immense pleasure to follow her narrative and Ananda Sangha’s footsteps.

Amazing story of an amazing Man

This book is read by the author and close friend of Swami Kriyananda. His life was extraordinary and beautifully told by the author. This book captured me and I finished it in less than two weeks. I didn't want it to end. And finally some detailed perspective on what SRF had been doing to Ananda all those years by someone with a front row seat.

A walk down Swamiji's life with Ashaji.

This is an inspirational book that throws light on aspects of Swamiji's life that are lesser known. Ashaji's narration brings those words a special quality. I read the book and listened to the audiobook parallely. Swamiji's blessings are palpable in the book. A must read for all truthseekers.
