Kriya Support from Ananda

Ongoing support for Kriya Yogis.


The single most important event of my life was taking my first Kriya Yoga Initiation at Ananda in the summer of 1975.

I have regularly and faithfully practiced Kriya since that time and I can say, without reservation, that all the promises that our Gurus make regarding Kriya Yoga and what it can do for your spiritual progress are very, very true!
