Paramahansa Yogananda in New York in 1926


My only purpose is to awaken God within you. As far as you want to go along the spiritual path, I can show you; and if you practice the techniques in the Lessons you will never feel stagnation in your progress.
Paramahansa Yogananda


"Self-realization is the knowing—in body, mind, and soul— that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God's omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing."
Paramahansa Yogananda


Kriya Yoga

An advanced technique of meditation taught by Self-Realization Fellowship to eligible students of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings.

For uncounted millenniums, India has been the spiritual light-land of the earth. It is in India that the divine soul-science of yoga — union with God through direct personal communion with Him — has been preserved. That is why Jesus went to India as a youth, and why he returned to India and conferred with Babaji for the spiritual evolution of the world. Time will testify to this truth, that they have given to the world through the Kriya Yoga teachings of Self-Realization Fellowship (Yogoda Satsanga Society of India) the techniques of meditation by which each soul can reunite with God through inner realization of the universal Christ-Krishna Consciousness.
