“Untying the cord of breath which binds the soul to the body, Kriya serves to prolong life and enlarge the consciousness to infinity. The yoga method overcomes the tug of war between the mind and the matter-bound senses, and frees the devotee to reinherit his eternal kingdom.” — Paramhansa Yogananda

Kriya is a specific meditation technique which accelerates human evolution and which leads to God-realization. It was revived in the modern age by the immortal guru, Babaji, and was brought from India to the Western world at the beginning of the twentieth century by Paramhansa Yogananda. In order to be able to practice Kriya properly, careful preparation is necessary. This preparation process, and initiation into the Kriya practices, are available through Ananda centers throughout the world, including the European center near Assisi, Italy.
