FREE TALK: The Ancient, Scientific Teachings of Kriya Yoga FREE

Kriya Yoga Boston

Kriya Yoga is an ancient method of living and meditation that cultivates body, mind, intellect, and awareness of the soul using powerful meditative and yogic disciplines. It helps us to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration and sound by using techniques of concentration, posture, and breathing. This develops a one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and to change our lives. Kriya Yoga teaches that any action, kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul. It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries.

Kriya Yoga was originally brought to the West by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi.

This free public lecture will be offered Friday evening by Swami Atmavidyananda Giri, in advance of a weekend workshop in the Boston area. For more information about the weekend workshop you can Click Here.

Swami Atmavidyananda Giri, a senior monk in the lineage of Paramahamsa Hariharananda and Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, currently Vice President of Kriya yoga Institute, has been tirelessly teaching Kriya Yoga to sincere seekers for more than 7 years.

Swami Atmavidyananda was born Arvind Joshi in a traditional Brahmin family in 1971, in Bhopal, India. At an early age, the spiritual environment and guidance of his parents nurtured in him a sincere quest for God.

Upon completion of a degree in mechanical engineering, he met Paramahamsa Hariharananda and, with his blessings, was initiated into Kriya Yoga in 1994, at Rourkela Ashram in India. After completing his professional responsibilities, in 2002, he dedicated his life fulltime to the cause of spiritual practice and joined the Hariharananda Gurukulam, Balighai under the auspices of Paramahamsa Prajnanananda.

Under the directions of his Master, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, he travelled outside India in 2006 to teach Kriya Yoga in the west. Since then he has travelled extensively in North America, South America, Europe and Asia to guide seekers on the path of Kriya Yoga. He has also participated in and presided over a number of interfaith conferences, and delivered a number of lectures, television and radio talks on spiritual topics in USA, Canada, and South America. Swamiji’s calm demeanor and beautiful voice charm his audiences in the very first meeting itself. He provides loving instructions in a very logical and clear manner. He can speak in 6 languages and his desire to constantly pick up more languages and being able to talk to the people in their own language, has endeared him to people in different parts of the world.

He was ordained as a monk in the Giri monastic order in February 2009 and given the name Swami Atmavidyananda, which means "bliss of Self-knowledge". While primarily dedicated to the cause of Kriya Yoga, he is also an expert in astrology, eastern and western scriptures, other ancient yogic practices and Vedic ritual ceremonies. As a resident monk of the Kriya Yoga Institute, he resides in the Mother Center at Miami, USA.
