One of the most fundamental desires of every human being is the desire for true and lasting happiness. In the search for happiness, we tend to look for it in some external condition or event. The problem comes in when that condition or event changes. We may be able to get things “just right” for a while, but when it inevitably changes, as all things do—we’re no longer happy.
What if there was a way to live from our center, from a place of true inner joy and peace, unconditioned by outer events? What if we could discover the true source of happiness within our own being?
There is a way, and it can be found through the ancient science of Kriya Yoga. Kriya Yoga was first introduced to the west through Paramhansa Yogananda’s book, Autobiography of a Yogi.
What is Kriya Yoga?
Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique of energy and breath control, or pranayama. More importantly, it is part of a comprehensive spiritual path which includes meditation, yoga, living the spiritual teachings, right attitude, and living in harmony not only with our higher self, but with all of life.
According to Yogananda, Kriya Yoga is the most effective technique available to mankind today for reaching the goal of Yoga: union with the Divine. Kriya Yoga is so effective because it works directly with the source of growth — the spiritual energy deep in our spines.
Kriya is also very practical in its effectiveness. Kriya Yogis find that it enhances their ability to concentrate, to become more effective in business and in family life, and to become better people in every way.
Free Yourself from All Limitation – Embrace Your Higher Self
“The grace of receiving Kriya has given me a purpose in life and a goal. But it’s also given me something I didn’t have before – the presence of God and Guru in my life.”Shirley Payne, UK
