Episode 31: Education

Swami Kriyananda

We want to fill children not just with knowledge, but with the ability to use that knowledge to help others, says Swami Kriyananda. That requires from the student a certain level of spiritual evolution.
Topics of discussion include the caste system in India, racial prejudice in America, the Education for Life education system founded by Swami Kriyananda, and the scale of organizations.
We can help everyone rise to their own natural level of perfection.

Questions include:
  • Among many challenges facing our education system is the question, Can you educate all children equally?
  • True teaching is individual, then — it has to relate to the level of consciousness of the individual student?
  • Do you think a smaller scale is the way of the future?

Ask Me About Truth

Swami Kriyananda answers questions about truth and many spiritual subjects, as he learned about them directly from Paramhansa Yogananda. (These talks were recorded in 2012, before Swami Kriyananda's passing.)
