Ministers and Lightbearers
Swami Kriyananda trained and authorized as “Ministers” many experienced Ananda teachers. About them, he says:
“Ananda ministers must do their best to speak from God’s inspiration within, and from the Ananda teachings, and not from their own merely human opinions…Our job as ministers is to guide people on this inward path of Kriya.”
In addition to teaching, the “Lightbearers” officiate at such ceremonies as “The Festival of Light,” the “Purification Ceremony,” weddings, baptisms, the Astral Ascension and funeral services.
