Start a New Meditation Practice or Inspire Your Current One
The 10-week Course in Meditation program is designed to provide in-depth instruction in scientific meditation techniques that bring more peace, deeper relaxation, and focused concentration to every area of your life, regardless of outer conditions. These techniques are based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi.
Paramhansa Yogananda, born in 1893, was the first yoga master of India to take up permanent residence in the West. Hundreds of thousands filled the largest halls in major American cities to see the yoga master from India. Yogananda continued to lecture and write up to his passing in 1952. Paramhansa Yogananda’s initial impact on Western culture was truly impressive. But his lasting spiritual legacy has been even greater. His *Autobiography of a Yogi*, first published in 1946, helped launch a spiritual revolution in the West. Translated into more than a dozen languages, it remains a best-selling spiritual classic to this day. [http://ananda.org/autobiography.]
Yogananda brought the path of Self-realization and universal spirituality for daily life. As the means of attaining this exalted spiritual state Yogananda initiated his followers into the ancient technique of Kriya Yoga, which he called the “jet-airplane route to God.” The path of Kriya Yoga combines the practice of advanced yogic techniques with spirituality in daily life and can be learned at http://ananda.org/kriya-yoga.
