But the situation is not hopeless. There are solutions to these problems. Ultimately, though, any genuine solution requires more than mere small-scale social or political changes, they require a shift in our entire consciousness, in our understanding of who we are, our place in the world, and what our real goals ought to be.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
Ananda Los Angeles today announced a one-night only engagement with celebrated yoga master, Swami Kriyananda at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood on Friday, September 25, 2009. Doors open at 6:30.
This evening will be a combined talk and international launch for the new edition of Swami Kriyananda's autobiography, The New Path: My Life with Paramhansa Yogananda. Kriyananda is one of the last living direct disciples of the renowned spiritual master, Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the best-selling spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi. During this wide-ranging talk, Kriyananda will share stories--sometimes intimate, often miraculous, and always inspirational--of his time with Yogananda, give rare insight into the life and mission of Yogananda, and present Yogananda's vision for the world in the coming years.
"Our society faces many severe problems in the near future - from the threat of financial meltdown to man-induced natural disasters," Swami Kriyananda said. "But the situation is not hopeless. There are solutions to these problems. Ultimately, though, any genuine solution requires more than mere small-scale social or political changes, they require a shift in our entire consciousness, in our understanding of who we are, our place in the world, and what our real goals ought to be."
Rev. Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center and author and featured teacher of The Secret will introduce Swami Kriyananda at this exclusive event.
