Kriya Lineage

Post by Nicholas » Tue Apr 04, 2017 10:10 pm

Although the modern Kriya yoga lineage became best known thanks to Lahiri Mahasay in the 19th century, many fine gurus have followed him up to the present.

One is Sri M, who in 1998 began to teach and inspire publicly. He does not teach Kriya yoga to everybody. There are no mass initiations or correspondence courses. He works for all humans, whatever their spiritual path, as did others in his lineage also.

He will be visiting the USA in July-September 2017.

A sequel to his autobiography is coming out in a few weeks. The first one is a magnificent adventure of a Sage with strong ties to great Masters.

Here is an Australian site with much content, mainly Swami Yogananda (d. 1952), but also quotes & articles from others in the Kriya Lineage:

Here is a little about the Avatar behind the modern public Kriya movement and a few of the links in the lineage. There are more than just the four mentioned:

Lahiri Mahasaya (d. 1895) grounded and taught the Kriya yoga method that the Avatar taught him. Many thousands have benefitted spiritually from that practice and the commentaries he made on key Indian texts.

Much of the Kriya gurus' teachings have been translated, not just Yogananda & Lahiri Mahasaya - but other disciples too. Here are two sources for these translations:

For the bottom one go to the Library.
