The Essence of Kriya Yoga

Kriya Yoga, meaning “union with the Self,” is a scientific system of meditation that aims to harmonize the individual consciousness with the universal divine. Through a combination of physical postures, breathing techniques, and mantra, practitioners seek to awaken their spiritual potential and attain a state of inner balance and tranquility.

A Lineage of Masters

Kriya Yoga is said to have been rediscovered in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji, a renowned Indian saint, and passed down through a lineage of enlightened masters including Lahiri Mahasaya and Paramahamsa Yogananda.

A Path to Spiritual Evolution

The practice of Kriya Yoga involves a series of progressive levels, each designed to accelerate spiritual evolution and foster a deep connection with the divine. By directing the life force through the body’s energy centers, practitioners aim to awaken dormant spiritual energies and attain a profound state of God-communion.


Paramahamsa Prajnanananda’s visit to Auckland presents a rare opportunity for spiritual seekers to experience the transformative power of Kriya Yoga. Through initiation, technique training, and a non-residential retreat, participants can embark on a journey towards inner awakening and cultivate a deeper connection with their true selves.
