Discipleship Explored with Darshan @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

We have a divine potential within us-we are the perfect soul. So it is part of the Divine Law to show us that which we can become. That is goal of the guru…”

prerequisite class for aspiring Kriya Yoga initiates

We are living in an age where the thought of discipleship is not pleasing to most people…does everyone need a guru? How can you recognize your own guru? What does it mean to be a disciple? What is the meaning of discipleship?

Stemming from Latin origins, the word disciple relates to “pupil or student” but it come from the roots “to learn” and “to take hold of or grasp”. In this two class series, we will explore how discipleship relates to the spiritual journey and the role of teachers and teachings.

No matter what path you choose, this class will give participants a clear understanding of the concept of discipleship and what it entails. At the end students will also be given the opportunity to consider and take discipleship for the path of Kriya Yoga. Discipleship is a prerequisite and necessary step toward Kriya initiation.

About Darshan Lotichius

Jan Lotichius was born in Holland, in 1960. In 1985 he met Swami Kriyananda in Italy who gave him the spiritual name Darshan and since then, as a member of Ananda Sangha, the spiritual movement founded by Kriyananda, and as an active practitioner of the meditation techniques brought to the West by the great Master from India, Paramhansa Yogananda, Darshan has been experimenting with integrated ways of applying spirituality to every field of social life. In 1992 he founded the Ananda Rome center which he co-directed for several years. Darshan has graduated in Italian and French literature at the Amsterdam and Rome universities and in music and violin at the Bari conservatory. He is a creative writer and choir director. In the late eighties he read Kriyananda’s book Education for Life and since then he has tried to integrate this approach to child education in his many actitivities with children, both as a teacher and a father. Darshan is a founding member of the Living Wisdom School Assisi which he co-directed for three years. He has conducted many summer camps at the Ananda Assisi community and is currently expanding his activities to Holland and America.
