Shelly, Guru to Kriyananda
SRI SHELLIJI, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, ran a remote ashram on the Canadian Border. It was there that the young Kriyananda went as a teenager and began his formal study of Yoga with a master.
Shelly was a spiritual scientist/researcher, healer, magician, military strategist, and futurist. In short, a very interesting person.
He was not interested in a large following, and if you check out the many lectures available through www.kriyaU.com you will hear Kriyananda give many stories about Shelliji.
Unfortunately, very few of his talks were recorded, but we do have one excerpt from a lecture series he did in Chicago.
