“May all men come to know that there is a definite, scientific technique [Kriya Yoga] for the overcoming of all human misery!”Paramhansa Yogananda, Ch. 48. At Encinitas in California
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.
