For Families, Young People and Educators
…Eternal values are essential to a truly productive life and to the attainment of the universal goal of all life: happiness.
…Kindness, good will, a spirit of cooperation, and similar positive traits, if manifested with energy, are magnetic; they usually attract from others a response in kind. Even where a positive response is not forthcoming from others, moreover, the harmful effect of a negative response on oneself is invariably minimized.
The “Education for Life” system proves its validity under the most adverse circumstances. It is practical. It is not a system for the few only—for the isolated, or the “spiritual”: It is for everybody. Whether one lives in the mountains or in city slums, its principles are practicable everywhere.
- Education for Life, by Swami Kriyananda
Programs for Families and Young People are based on the principles of Education for Life, the educational system developed by Swami Kriyananda, inspired by the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
