In 1968 I was experimenting with psychedelic drugs and trying to find an answer to what life was really all about. A friend had the Autobiography on a shelf and I saw Gurudeva’s picture.
I had an immediate sensation of recognition and took the book and read it. That ended the cycles of psychedelic ups and downs. I took the lessons and I have been meditating daily since then. I do not think I could have gotten through my life (I am now 75 and healthy and alert) and enjoyed the successes and love I have found without daily meditation and the constant living presence of our guru. I took Kriya initiation about 20 years ago and practice my Kriya daily. Thank God and Guru for sticking with me and being a constant presence in my life for almost 50 years. – Steven W.
