What will Seminary ignite in you?
A passion for sharing wisdom? Greater compassion? The catalyst to serve others?
Pursue Joy And Meaning
Each of us has the ability to be happy and fulfilled in this lifetime. The Kriya Seminary program serves as a bridge between the Temple of Kriya and dedicated people, like you, who are called to a life of spiritual service — a life devoted to the greater joy and meaning that comes from helping others.
Seminary requires self-discipline and dedication, and in turn rewards you with a wiser and more compassionate soul. Our systematic course of study cultivates your spiritual unfoldment, preparing you to assist those who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, God, and Life.
Help Others To Help Themselves
Begin your journey from seminarian to priesthood. The Kriya Seminary equips you with the essential knowledge, skills, and tools required to effectively help others to help themselves. A swami of the Temple is a real person living in the real world. Our swamis have diverse backgrounds, careers and families. You share the universal goal to serve the spiritual needs of yourself and others, yet each graduate serves in their unique way — from teaching hatha yoga, meditation, or philosophy, to providing spiritual guidance, to performing weddings, baptisms, or other sacred rituals.
The Seminary proverb is, “Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day; teach him to fish and he will eat forever.” As a seminarian, we empower you to embody the unique expression of your spirit, and share it to uplift and enlighten others.
