Kriya Yoga
(Swami Sri Yukteswar and
Paramahansa Yogananda)

Paramahansa Yogananda was born January 5, 1893. His parents were Bengalis of the Kshatriya caste. He studied Kriya Yoga under Swami Sri Yukteswar who later encouraged him to carry this belief system to the West. (The word Kriya means "action" or "to do.") In 1920 he came to the United States, eventually establishing the Church of All Religions and the Self-Realization Fellowship, building a large headquarters and yoga center in 1949 in Los Angeles, California. Since then Self-Realization Fellowship Centers have sprung up all over the world. Yogananda was one of the first Indian gurus to receive widespread recognition in the Western world. One of his most popular and well-known works is the book entitled, The Autobiography of a Yogi. He died in 1952.
