The Yoga Hour: Living the Eternal Way offers inspiration, insights, and time-tested practices from the ancient system of Kriya Yoga—a philosophy and practice for spiritually conscious, fulfilled living today. This hour of dialogue with internationally renowned spiritual teachers offers keen insight into universal principles for enlightened living while touching the most practical aspects of our lives such as work, relationships, health, and diet. Even while emphasizing the practical, it speaks to our deepest yearnings to fully awaken to Self- and God-realization in this lifetime.

Answers to Ten Questions Every Devotee Wants to Know        
Asha Nayaswami  

How can I find happiness?  Is it possible to quiet the mind?  Whether we are just starting along the path of spiritual awakening or have been on the path for some time, we often have questions about our spiritual journey, and about how spiritual teachings relate to issues in our lives. Imagine sitting down to listen to a conversation between two spiritual leaders who are longtime disciples in the spiritual tradition of Paramahansa Yogananda. You can.  Join Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian and guest Asha Nayaswami, Spiritual Director of Ananda Palo Alto and author of Ask Asha, as they discuss questions that arise on the path of Self-realization. 

Asha Nayaswami is Spiritual Director of Ananda Palo Alto. She studied with her teacher Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, for more than 40 years.  She was a founding member of Ananda Village. Asha is a gifted storyteller and a much-respected teacher. Bringing together nearly forty years of spiritual living and close observation to detail, her talks and writings inspire others with a unique blend of sensitive insight, courage, and joy.
