Swami Kriyananda Thoughts on Spiritual Path

One of the most important things on the spiritual path, especially for the newcomer, is the wise selection of associates.
In a spiritual environment there may be a few gossips and grumblers, a few devotees who meditate too little, while others can’t seem to get it into their minds that is they who need changing, not the rest of the world.
On the other side, I ever truly spiritual organization there are also those who, by their example of selfless service, constant cheerfulness, inward focus, and spiritual fervor inspire in others a constant renewal of dedication.
