About Kriya Yoga International Organizations

Our Goal: Spiritual Growth and Service to Humanity

Our goal is to create a spiritual environment of love, compassion, cooperation, and service for sincere spiritual seekers and all of creation. We are dedicated to the service of humanity through spiritual, charitable, health, and educational activities. We promote integrated growth—spiritual, physical, psychological, emotional, and intellectual—through yoga, meditation, prayer, study, and service.

Our Reach: An Organization Without Borders

The Kriya Yoga International Organizations are comprised of the three Kriya Yoga Center headquarters (Mother Centers) in the USA, Europe, and India and their subsidiary centers and groups in North and South America, Europe, India, Australia, and New Zealand. All three Mother Centers have non-profit status in their respective countries, and were founded by Paramahamsa Hariharananda for spiritual, educational, and charitable purposes.

Our Focus: Supporting Spiritual Seekers

We disseminate the teachings of Kriya Yoga as taught by the unbroken lineage of Kriya Yoga masters, starting from Mahavatar Babaji Maharaj through to Paramahamsa Hariharananda and his spiritual successor Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. The goal is to help spiritual seekers learn the technique of Kriya Yoga and to further their spiritual growth. Kriya Yoga initiation programs and retreats are offered worldwide, as are a body of teachings in printed matter and other media. We provide an environment that encourages spiritual development, meditation, and learning how to implement Kriya Yoga in daily life. The sacred spiritual teachings of Kriya Yoga are taught to sincere seekers proceeding on the path of Self-realization and God consciousness, irrespective of race, nationality, gender, and religion.

Our Method: Kriya Yoga

Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique to help spiritual seekers attain Self-realization, which means to be in constant communion with God. Through this technique, the seeker or student can perceive the presence of God within, as well as in all of creation. To attain this state requires regular and sincere Kriya meditation and living a life of love and service.
