The Path of Kriya Yoga is a way of life through which one can accelerate their spiritual growth, using techniques and tools for meditation. In one of the best-selling spiritual books of our time, Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramhansa Yogananda called it the jet airplane route to God or Self-realization.
“Kriya Yoga, the scientific technique of God-realization, he finally said with solemnity, will ultimately spread in all lands, and aid in harmonizing the nations through man’s personal, transcendental perception of the Infinite Father.” —Babaji speaking to Paramhansa Yogananda in the Autobiography of a Yogi.
According to Yogananda, Kriya Yoga is the most effective technique available to mankind today for reaching the goal of Yoga or union with the Divine. Its effectiveness has been proven in the lives of people from all walks of life, religions, and nationalities.
Ananda Worldwide offers training in the Path of Kriya Yoga in three ways: online, in-person, or home book-study.

“The role of Kriya Yoga is to show mankind how to live together on earth in higher awareness.” -- Swami Kriyananda
