Kriya (Kryya) Yoga is an ancient meditation system, significantly accelerating human evolution, leading to Divine self-realization. In ancient times, Kriya Yoga was transmitted by the immortal Maha Yogi Mahavatar Babaji.


In fact, Kriya Yoga has long been known among the Himalayan yogis. In the 19th century, Lahiri Mahasaya, a direct student of Mahavatar Babaji, began to teach his students these techniques openly. At the beginning of the 20th century Paramahansa Yogananda brought this unique knowledge from India to Western countries.


In order to be prepared for the practices of Kriya Yoga meditation correctly, a careful and serious preparation is required. Such detailed preparation and further initiation into the practice of Kriya Yoga is possible in various spiritual schools around the world.

Kriya Yoga: what is it?

Kriya Yoga is the oldest system of meditation and breathing exercises. As a result of the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation, the kundalini energy is awakened. Kriya Yoga consists of a huge number of techniques that are based on conscious breathing and power of visualization. For many centuries, Kriya Yoga meditation techniques have been passed down from high gurus to worthy students. Nowadays, knowledge and techniques are gradually becoming more open and accessible to larger audience of spiritual seekers. The source of Kriya Yoga techniques is Mahavatara Babaji, the greatest immortal Himalayan Master.


Kriya in Sanskrit means "action." In essence, this means the movement of energy through energy channels and chakras. We are accustomed to believing that an action is physically performed, but in reality there is also an inner action. For those who go through the path of spiritual evolution, it is necessary to practice meditation and mantras, which are inner actions.

True Self and the Golden Body


Mahavatar Babaji provides a high service to all mankind. Babaji's secret cave ashram is located in the Himalayas, however he can appear anywhere in the world in order to meet his students. In the 50s and 60s of the 20th century my Guru Yogi Ramaiah lived in the Himalayan ashram of Babaji, where he studied the philosophy of the ancient sages and the practices of Kriya Yoga.


Yogi Ramaiah did not advertise himself during his lifetime, his task was to train only a small group of students. He had a strange and tough character. Yogi Ramaiah could be rude and swear at his students, his behavior was eccentric which is why most visitors, resenting his strange tricks, left his ashram.


Near Yogi Ramaiah there were only those few who, according to the divine plan, were to receive his amazing instructions on the essence of spiritual evolution and receive training in the ancient practices of Kriya Yoga. Yogi Ramaiah taught a narrow circle of students among them people of different nationalities. He conveyed in detail the knowledge and practices of various areas of yoga.
