This month we are featuring talks on the connection between Kriya Yoga and the Teachings of Jesus. These are to some extent designed for those who are wary of the religious aspect of Yoga and whether it is compatible with the Christian teachings. We think you will find these talks illuminating and we are pleased to have found these talks for you. 

Welcome to our Online Temple

"There is no path to happiness,
happiness is the path.”

Goswami Kriyananda
1928-2015

Goswami Kriyananda

We invite you to join us on our spiritual journey along with our Founder, the late Goswami Kriyananda. Kriya Yoga is a series of techniques for living your life, so that you will be happy and content. The philosphy and principles of Kriya Yoga dovetail wonderfully with any religion.

Goswami Kriyananda was the Founder and Spiritual Preceptor of the Temple of Kriya Yoga. He taught the concepts codified by Patanjali in the late BCE period. Active in Chicago for more than 50 years, he was a prolific writer and speaker, not only at the Temple but in seminars and workshops in France and Italy in addition to many different engagements in the United States. His warmth, humor and wisdom live on.
