“During Times of Crisis, How Can I Help?”

Swami Kriyananda answers this question and talks about the HUGE coming changes in the video below.

mystic harpTo those who don’t know him (or know of him) he’s just “a nice, kindly man with a gentle sense of humor.” Well, I’ve kept tabs on Swami Kriyananda (aka J. Donald Walters) since 1993 and offer my personal testament to his devotion to God, and helping others through Him. He is a man of tremendous energy and deep insight, as well as my inspiration for creating this site and giving away my silver.

He’s founded half a dozen spiritual communities in three countries, published 90+ books, and composed over 400 pieces of music (including the best-selling “Mystic Harp” recorded by Derek Bell of The Chieftains). And yet, this dear man has no discernable ego. He is a friend to all, wanting nothing from anyone.

I mention this in hopes you won’t dismiss what he says as the ravings of a crackpot (uh, I own that distinction on this site!).

  1. Hi there sorry if I offended you, no hard feelings.

  2. Hi Scott,

    No offense but Mr. Walters has admitted to having sex with his followers at least 7. There are many allegations of sex abuse against him, you might want to look into that. I think it’s better to just rely on our own power, and to develop spiritually on our own instead of following the gurus. Every soul has the same potential in my opinion anyway.

    have a nice day!

    • Hey Jim,

      I also have had sex with women I did not marry (sorry Mom), hope that doesn’t disqualify me from helping others!

      Interestingly enough, your recommendation to “rely on our own power” parallels Mr. Walters’ answer to a question he was once asked, “Which is the best yoga posture?” His reply? “That which allows you to stand on your own two feet.”

      Regarding “following a guru”: if I want to become an expert plumber should I limit myself to reading textbooks? Yes, it may well be enough, but apprenticing with a master plumber would get me there faster. A guru to me is a master teacher, whether you call him Jesus, Ramakrishna, Yogananda, etc. And a true guru will want nothing from/for you but your own highest good. (BTW I have never heard Mr. Walters refer to himself as anyone’s guru. He considers himself a fellow friend on the spiritual path.)
