Kriya Yoga Meditation with Swami Shankarananda Giri 


Swami Shankarananda Giri
Kriya Yoga is an ancient meditation technique for self-realization which is well known in India. Through Paramahansa Yogananda and his "Autobiography of a Yogi" it became hugely popular in the West in the 1920s. Today there are many references to Kriya Yoga Meditation, and yet it is taught only by a limited number of masters, most of whom are Indian. Paramahansa Yogananda arrived in the United States in 1920, where he taught Kriya Yoga in accordance with his master's request. The transmission of this teaching has been continued without interruption ever since. Several masters have in the past come to Western countries to teach Kriya Yoga so that it is available to everyone.

Swami Shankarananda Giri is a spiritual heir in this tradition, and teaches these techniques in its original form as they were transmitted by the lineage of masters. Those who desire to receive instructions in this path as a means for spiritual evolution, are invited to make contact with one of the centres. Swami Shankarananda Giri has been teaching Kriya Yoga techniques in India since 1974, and in Europe since 1978. He has also inherited the astrological system called Cosmic Astrology from his master Swami Narayana Giri ("Prabhujee"). This system was established by Shri Yukteswar.
