About Nayaswami Jaya
Nayaswami Jaya is a practising Kriya Yogi for over 50 years. His life is an eloquent testimony to the transforming power behind the timeless teachings of the Bhagavad Gita. He speaks from experience, born not of belief, but of daily practice.
He is among the founding members of Ananda Worldwide. For many years he served as the general manager of Ananda Village in the U.S. overseeing the development of housing and business clusters, roads, water and phone systems, and other infrastructure that supports the Village residents and guests. Later, he and his wife helped start an Ananda Center on the East Coast of the U.S., and from there, it was only a short “jump” to Ananda India! Jaya is an Ananda Lightbearer and Kriyacharia (authorized to initiate devotees into Kriya Yoga). For the past several years he has often traveled around India, providing help and advice to the leaders and devotees with their duties and spiritual growth.
