Students are saying …

"Of all the words I have heard and read in my life, Sri Goswami Kriyananda's are the ones that continue to inspire me the most. What he distills from his thorough knowledge of the major mystical schools is a set of practical techniques that encourage self-awareness and compassion.

For many, it is his humor and down-to-earth sensibility that is so appealing; for others, it is his rigorously scientific and mathematical mind; for others still, it is the power of his insight regarding the fusion of the mundane and the spiritual. His is the brilliant achievement of the true Master."
