Swami Kriyananda

Sunday Service: Abiding in God
July 4, 2010

Swami Kriyananda

To the disciples, Yogananda spoke of the importance of
attunement with the guru. To others, he urged the importance
at least of attuning oneself to higher consciousness.

Can an eagle rise without support from the sustaining air?

Talk by Swami Kriyananda

A group of like-minded souls can be much more of an oasis of peace, green and flourishing, than an individual. In the difficult times that are coming, people will seek such protection.
