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.
We invite you to participate in the special programs and courses offered by Ananda India. These timeless, practical teachings will help you live a more joyful, vibrant and fulfilling life.
This year we honor the 100th anniversary of Paramhansa Yogananda’s arrival in Boston (in 1920) which marked the beginning of a new wave of spiritual consciousness in America and throughout the world. His mission was one of world peace and brotherhood and Self-realization through the practice of transformative meditation techniques such as Kriya Yoga. We celebrate the change of consciousness that began in the 20th century and continues today through his books, teachings, and practices of meditation and yoga. In it lies one of our greatest hopes for the future.
