New Year's Eve Initiation

At the New Year's Eve service, Ananda Palo Alto held its first initiation ceremony for members joining the new Nayaswami order that Swami Kriyananda started in Italy last November. There are two lovely sets of photos that you can see, from Jeffrey and from Karen and David.

The three levels of this new order are identified by color, which can be worn as a complete set of robes, or as a single, symbolic item of clothing. In the case of this ceremony, the participants wore matching scarves.

Here, then, are the new initiates — congratulations to all!

Yellow - Bramacharis

Teal - Tyagis

Blue - Nayaswamis
