What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya Yoga is a powerful meditation technique that aims to help spiritual seekers attain the summit of spiritual experience — constant communion with the Divine – with joy and ease.

Based on the science of breath, Kriya Yoga has been handed down — from teacher to student — in an unbroken lineage of enlightened masters that reaches deep into the mists of time immemorial. Kriya Yoga transforms the body, mind, and heart, helping us be calmly active and actively calm.

Our Lineage

Kriya Yoga’s power lies in its ancient lineage, timeless teachings, and intense focus on practical spirituality — making it an ideal path for our contemporary world. Today this vibrant lineage reaches out to welcome seekers through Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, the latest living guru in a powerful tradition of realized masters. He is the principal disciple of the great Kriya Yoga master Paramahamsa Hariharananda.

This website is the digital home of the international organizations established to support the ongoing work of these precious spiritual masters.

Charitable Activities

The masters of Kriya Yoga teach that spirituality is not just practiced on a meditation cushion. A spiritual person is constantly seeking opportunities to serve others, help others, and erase differences.

“We should learn to live for others. When we live for others, our hearts and minds are purified, and love and compassion flow more deeply. One who serves others seeks opportunities to help others.”
