Kriya Yoga Discipleship Training
As of this writing I have been practicing Kriya Yoga as I learned it from my teacher, Roy Euguene Davis, for twenty years. He, in turn, spent 70 years practicing and teaching Kriya Yoga as he learned it from his teacher Paramahansa Yogananda. I have done my best to ceaselessly practice as I learned from him, and to share the philosophy and practices of Kriya Yoga in accord with my current understanding and experience.
Over these past decades as a student of Mr. Davis I have been able to note what qualities are conducive to learning and those which are not. To be a disciple, simply means to be a student. Like anything else in life, certain qualities are required for success in certain fields. The qualities described below are applicable to success on the Kriya Yoga path regardless of gender, status, caste, time, place or circumstance.
Mr. Davis would often discuss many of these ideal qualities as necessary for a person to effectively learn and practice Kriya Yoga. These, I’m sure, were based on what Paramahansa Yogananda required of his own students. The following course synthesizes the characteristics described by Mr. Davis as well as my own observations over the years. If these characteristics are already present in your personality, that is good. If they are not present, they are to be cultivated.
The purpose of this course is to outline as clearly as possible the requirements to participate as a disciple in the Kriya Yoga Tradition or as a disciple with a living Kriya teacher. The course also explores ways to prepare for entering into a healthy, worthwhile teacher-student relationship.
The core of the course is an 8-week series of videos and lessons. Bonus material, for those who want to continue their studies beyond the initial 8-weeks is included at the end of the course to provide further inspiration, instruction and contemplation.
