Welcome to KriyaU, the online learning portal and store for the teachings of Sri Goswami Kriyananda.
Goswami Kriyananda, founder of the Temple of Kriya Yoga, was a prolific writer and taught for over six decades. He transitioned from this life in April, 2015. With the realization that his transition was near, Kriyananda communicated his wish that his teachings be put in one place and made readily available to anyone, anywhere in the world. As students have heard many times over the years, first you think it, then you say it, then you do it. From Kriyananda’s wishes and words KriyaU took form.
Much work has gone into archiving, sorting and digitizing this vast library and more is being done each day. Material available through KriyaU includes seminars, lectures, noon meditations and writings. We hope you find KriyaU responsive, and friendly. Choose your device – phone, tablet or computer. Stream or download. Access is immediate with the exception of some written material which must be shipped.
Goswami Kriyananda stressed that it is not the teacher, but the teachings that are important. The wisdom found here is from the Kriya Yoga lineage as taught by Shelliji to Kriyananda. Many have heard Kriyananda tell of urging Shelly to write a book to contain the teachings. Shelly replied to Kryananda, “I have written a book. It is you.” Now, in making this library available to all, Kriyananda is giving access to the wisdom of generations of gurus. Listen, read, study and explore. Always ask “does this ring true to me”?
This site stems from Chicago’s Temple of Kriya Yoga, founded in 1964 and located at 2414 N. Kedzie Blvd since 1978. The Chicago Temple is the home affiliate of Kriya U. We invite anyone interested in starting a local affiliated spiritual Yoga Temple to contact us through the website.
