Swami Kriyananda devoted his life to teaching and guiding people making their way on the spiritual path. His teaching has been unusual in its breadth — offering insight into spiritualizing nearly every aspect of human life, as well as exploring the inmost depths of interior sacred experience that have long been the reserve of mystics. He has been prolific in written and recorded teaching, some of which took place at Ananda Palo Alto. You may enjoy beginning here, and then exploring further (see links below for more).

It's a rare opportunity to learn from a lifelong disciple of Yogananda — someone who was, himself, one of the most profound spiritual figures of the 20th century.
