What Is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique that quickly accelerates one’s spiritual growth and is part of a greater, comprehensive spiritual path. It was first made widely known by Paramhansa Yogananda in his spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi.

Yogananda said that Kriya Yoga is the most effective technique available for helping one to reach the goal of Yoga, which means “union with the Divine.”

Discover the depth and power of the teachings of Kriya Yoga as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda, through this free introductory course.

Through the course lessons, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of Kriya Yoga as a comprehensive spiritual path.
  • Learn the history and practical benefits of Kriya Yoga.
  • Get specific guidance on how to get started on the Path of Kriya.

This course does not teach the actual technique of Kriya Yoga. The goal of this course is to open a door — to help you learn about Kriya Yoga as a path to God and invite you to take your next steps on the journey of Self-realization.
