What is True Wealth?

Swami Kriyananda

Money, we've all heard, is the root of all evil. This piece of folk wisdom is due, no doubt, to the fact that so many people mistakenly imagine that money is the source of all good! For when we expect too much of anything, we eventually find, as with idol worship, that the object of our dependence is not competent to answer our prayers, nor capable of fulfilling our expectations of it.

How to Achieve Peace of Mind

Swami Kriyananda

It would be relatively easy to control the mind, were our conscious thought processes all we had to deal with. Unfortunately for this wished-for ease, the conscious mind is only the tip of a vast iceberg of consciousness. Buried in the subconscious, too deep even for conscious recognition, is a vast realm of unfulfilled desires and unresolved tendencies, which often militate against anything we try consciously to undertake.

The Deeper Meaning of Christ's Birth

Swami Kriyananda

St. Francis and Theresa Neuman both testify to visions of Christ's birth. They state that He didn't undergo birth in the usual way, but manifested as light.

Who is Divine Mother?

Swami Kriyananda

First of all, we need to understand that Divine Mother is not a separate thing or person, but is the feminine aspect of God. There's really only one reality-the Infinite Consciousness that has produced all the different manifestations we see. But there can be different expressions of the Divine that appeal to people according to their own natures.

The Purpose of Marriage

Swami Kriyananda

The purpose of marriage is mutual growth and expansion. To cling to a marriage solely because one feels one must is to defeat that very purpose. It amounts, usually, to covering under a blanket of artificial flowers the naked but actual reason for remaining in a dead relationship: pride. Such people cannot acknowledge that they have made a mistake, and cannot allow others to perceive them as having erred.
