“If Kriya Yoga is practiced with a sense of inner attunement to one’s own guru, it speedily lifts one to enlightenment.” – Swami Kriyananda


The first Kriya initiation of the modern era was given by Mahavatar Babaji to his householder disciple, Lahiri Mahasaya, in a golden palace which he materialized for this momentous occasion.

Studded with countless jewels, and set amidst landscaped gardens, it presented a spectacle of unparalleled grandeur”. 

It is this grandeur that we discover within us through our practice of Kriya.

If you have already received the First Kriya Initiation, this weekend will be an opportunity for you to clarify your understanding, deepen your practice, and lovingly support those who are newly entering into the higher dimensions of Kriya.
