Editorial Reviews

New Spirit Journal, October 2012 - Krysta Gibson
Sometimes it is fun to learn complex ideas and principles through stories. That’s exactly what world-renowned spiritual teacher Donald Walters, now known as Kriyananda, does in this book. Using the technique of storytelling, Kriyananda shares timeless ideas and techniques he learned from his guru, Paramhansa Yogananda. Once can wonder how much of the story is a mixture of fiction with the non-fiction.

While exploring in Rumania, two boys named Donny and Bobby discover a ruined laboratory with a mysterious tunnel. Entering into it, their bodies shrink and they emerge into a beautiful countryside and meet Hansel, whose father invented the “time tunnel.” They learn how to encase themselves in time-light spheres and they visit the Middle Ages, ancient Greece, and Egypt, while also forwarding into the future.

The story is a good one and filled with knowledge about history and human behavior. This would be a great way to introduce children of all ages to some great spiritual truths while also entertaining them. It’s a fun read while offering deep insights.

October 2012 - Jodine Turner PhD
A delightful tale that reveals spiritual insights through the innocent eyes of children—the endearing young brothers Donny and Bobby. Read this book to your children. Read it for yourself!
October 2012 - Michael Gurian
The Time Tunnel is a fun adventure. Well written, gently spiritual, intellectually satisfying, and filled with fast-paced action, the book enters the imagination and stays there long after it is finished.
October 2012 - Michael Sussman
Swami Kriyananda has written a charming tale that whisks the reader through time and space, imparting gems of wisdom along the way.
October 2012 - R. Daniel Noyes
The Time Tunnel is a wonderfully uplifting story that weaves adventure and timeless truths into a vibrant mosaic that will touch the heart and mind of readers of all ages.
October 2012 - Caryn Colgan
The Time Tunnel transports the reader into a mystical realm some of us dream of exploring. We are gently reminded of our spiritual nature as we travel safely to other time and space ‘realities.’
October 2012 - Joseph Selbie
This delightful book weaves adventure and spiritual truths together in such a way that young people (of any age) can appreciate both. It is also a delight to see the central concept of the yugas, that our past and future are part of a recurring cycle of human development, brought to life with creativity and insight.
October 2012 - Ellen Valladares
The Time Tunnel is a visionary story for all ages. Kids will love the fun, magical time-traveling adventures and adults will enjoy the enlightening tale that will awaken their inner child and wisdom within.
October 2012 - Shankari Boldt
Captivating and magical.
October 2012 - Devi Novak
I think we’ve found another classic.
October 2012 - Michael Dyson
More, more, please! We need more books that bring spiritual teachings to life! Fiction can convey Truth in a simple heartfelt way. We can resonate with the Wisdom in this book without having to know all the philosophical arguments that support it. Children, especially, can learn profound lessons about how to live happy uplifting lives without having to go through the sometimes ponderous process of Being Taught Important Things!
October 2012 - Peggy Payne
The Time Tunnel will take you to Atlantis, ancient Egypt, and the future, as you never imagined them.
October 2012 - Michael Deranja M.Ed.
Timeless truths presented in a light, yet profoundly instructive manner.
October 2012 - James Conti
A thoroughly entertaining story for children and parents alike.
October 2012 - Lila Devi
Has the power to bring the reader of any age to a place of ageless truth and absolute magic.
October 2012 - Richard Salva
Children of every age will find wonder and enlightenment in Swami Kriyananda’s novel, The Time Tunnel. Enjoy venturing through time and space with Hans and Donny and Bobby in their time-light spheres. If you’re like me, you’ll wish you were truly along for the ride!
