Kriya Yoga and its Origin
The Ancient, Authentic Teachings of Kriya Yoga
Kriya Yoga is a relatively quick and easy non-sectarian path to reach higher states of consciousness and change your life by developing mind, body, intellect and awareness of the soul. Based on the science of breath, it provides a very powerful technique of meditation that greatly enhances all spiritual practice.
Kriya Yoga cannot be successfully practiced without being initiated by a Kriya Master or one of their authorised teachers. It cannot be learned from a book or any instructions on the Internet.
The Australia Kriya Yoga Association is a part of the worldwide network of Kriya Yoga International organisations, headed by Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, and represents an unbroken lineage of Kriya masters. More information about the International organisation can be found at kriya.org
Where did Kriya Yoga Come From?
For generations, Kriya teachings have been lovingly handed down from teacher to student, year after year, century after century. In 1861, the great Himalayan yogi Mahavatar Babaji re-introduced the ancient practice of Kriya Yoga to modern times — from hidden Himalayan caves to our contemporary cities, streets and villages — through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya.
Still taught directly from teacher to student, Kriya Yoga — through the compassion of our lineage of masters and yogis — is now available to seekers across the globe. The Kriya Yoga techniques are passed on only by word of mouth from an authorised teacher directly to the student.
