This 6-week course is Step 4 on the Path of Kriya Yoga and is required to receive Kriya initiation.

Whenever we become serious in any field of study, we tend to seek the wisdom and guidance from one who has mastered his ‘art.’

This is especially true on the spiritual path. The Guru-Disciple relationship is one filled with deep inspiration, offering our lives a clear direction to focus our spiritual efforts.

Swami Kriyananda shares insights into the importance and practice of the Guru-Disciple relationship. Through personal stories and reflection of his experiences with Paramhansa Yogananda, he helps prepare the student for a life of discipleship to a great Yoga master.


In this 6-week course you will learn:

— The need for a guru.
— The disciple’s part.
— How to draw on the guru’s power.
— The importance of attunement and magnetism.
— Discipleship to Paramhansa Yogananda.

If, after completing this course, you feel ready for this level of commitment, you may receive an at-home or in-person initiation into the line of Masters of Self-Realization.


Whom This Course is For:

This course is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, regardless of whether they are seeking discipleship at this stage of their life. Participating in this course does not mean you’ll become a disciple of this path, but you will learn more of the universal teachings of the holy guru/disciple relationship.

It is also highly recommended for those who have already taken the step of discipleship, as it can help clarify and deepen one’s understanding of what the Guru-Disciple relationship truly means.
