Trade Paperback. Kriyananda (born James Donald Walters; 1926 – 2013), was a direct disciple of the yogi Paramahansa Yogananda and was the founder of Ananda, a worldwide movement of spiritual intentional communities based on Yogananda's World Brotherhood Colonies ideal. Paramahansa Yogananda made Walters a minister for Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF), Yogananda's organization. He authorized him to teach Kriya Yoga, and appointed him the SRF head monk for Mount Washington monks. After Yogananda's passing, Walters was given final vows of sannyas in 1955 by then SRF President Daya Mata and given the name Kriyananda. In 1960 the SRF Board of Directors elected Kriyananda to the Board of Directors and to the position of Vice President, upon the passing of Dr. M.W. Lewis. Kriyananda is the author of about 150 published books and the composer of over 400 pieces of music which altogether have sold over three million copies. Some of the books have been published in 28 languages and some are sold in 90 countries. He has lectured in different countries throughout the world. In addition to English, he spoke Italian, Romanian, Greek, French, Spanish, German, Hindi, Bengali, and Indonesian. He established a new Swami order in 2009, the Nayaswami Order. Kriyananda established Ananda Village as a World Brotherhood Colony in 1968 on 40 acres of land near Nevada City, California — his portion of a 160-acre parcel acquired with Richard Baker, Gary Snyder, and Allen Ginsberg. According to Kriyananda, these communities provide a supportive environment of “simple living and high thinking” where 1,000 full-time residents live, work, and worship together. The establishment of World Brotherhood Colonies was one of Yogananda's central "Aims and Ideals" (published in his "Autobiography of a Yogi" until 1958). Kriyananda founded various retreat centers: The Expanding Light Yoga and Meditation Retreat and nearby Ananda Meditation Retreat, both located near Nevada City, California, U.S.A.; Ananda Associazione near Assisi, Italy; and Ananda Gurgaon, India. There are over 125 Ananda Meditation groups in 19 countries, all of which were inspired in one way or another by Kriyananda.
