Our Inspiration

AutobiographyParamhansa Yogananda

Paramhansa Yogananda (1893 – 1952), best known as the author of Autobiography of a Yogi, was the first guru from India to make his home permanently in the United States. He showed how through meditation one can realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality. He taught an ancient meditation technique known as Kriya Yoga, by which one can quickly attain Self-realization. Find out about our Autobiography of a Yogi app, for daily wisdom on your smartphone!

What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique that quickly accelerates one’s spiritual growth.

It was first made widely known by Paramhansa Yogananda in his Autobiography of a Yogi. You can learn Kriya Yoga by taking classes at one of our teaching centres, or at home through the Ananda Kriya Yoga Home Study Course. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated by thousands of dedicated Ananda Kriya Yogis, from all walks of life, religions, nationalities, and backgrounds.
