History
The science of Kriya Yoga has a divine origin and was not created by the human intellect. The modern revival for this ancient meditation method began in 1861 with Mahavatar Babaji and has been handed down to the current Kriya lineage of masters directly through the master-disciple method of teaching. It was re-introduced to general public through Babaji's able disciple, Shri Shyamacharan Lahiri, a pious householder popularly known as Lahiri Mahasaya.More...

One must receive initiation into the authentic Kriya Yoga directly from Paramahamsa Prajnanananda or one of his authorized yogacharyas. The ancient tradition for learning the royal science of Kriya Yoga meditation begins with purification. Seekers participate in a holy ceremony to purify the spine and the body. Each seeker is initiated on an individual basis through the direct contact of a teacher of this lineage. The teacher directly infuses the triple divine qualities of sound, vibration, and light into the initiate. Through this process, the seeker learns to perceive the inner light of the soul, hear divine sound, and feel the divine movement sensation all over the body. Sacred mantras are chanted throughout the ceremony with adequate explanations in English. At the completion of the ceremony, the first level of Kriya techniques is taught so that aspirants can meditate on their own and continue the process of purification.
