BABAJI'S KRIYA YOGA ORDER OF ACHARYAS

Mission: To promote the dissemination of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga throughout the world through lectures, public classes, initiation seminars, and retreats through qualified and authorized teachers (“ acharyas ”). Babaji’s Kriya Yoga is a scientific art of perfect God Truth Realization. It is a practical side to all religions, and is therefore non-sectarian, suitable to everyone, regardless of their religious ideals. It represents the teachings of Satguru Kriya Babaji Nagaraj and the 18 Siddha Yoga tradition of India.

History and current activities: Babaji’s Kriya Yoga Order of Acharyas, Inc. was established in the USA, Quebec, Canada and India in 1997 and granted tax exempt status as a 501 (c) (3) educational charity by the Internal Revenue Service of the United States as well as by Revenue Canada and by India. It is a network of “acharyas” or expert teachers who, following a common set of standards for teaching, personal yogic practice and ethical conduct, reporting and coordination, promote the dissemination of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga throughout the world via lectures, publications, initiations and retreats. The founder-president of the Order, Marshall Govindan Satchidananda was asked by Babaji and the late Yogi S.A.A. Ramaiah (1923-2006) to establish the Order in 1986. Yogi Ramaiah, a Tamil Siddha Yogi, was initiated by Babaji near Badrinath, in the Himalayas in 1954. M Govindan Satchidananda was trained in all aspects of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga by Yogi Ramaiah from 1970 to 1988, practicing it for eight hours per day throughout this 18 year period.

The Order maintains ashrams in Quebec , Bangalore, two in Sri Lanka and is building one in Badrinath, India. The ashrams accomodate serious students of yoga who seek an environment for intensive yogic practice. Babaji’s Kriya Yoga ashram near Eastman, Quebec is one of the most beautiful Yoga ashrams in the world today. Founded in 1992, it offers year round retreats and seminars. It is located on top of a mountain, with panoramic views of neighboring mountains and pristine forest land. The 40 acre site includes a private lake, a mediation hall, access to hundreds of acres of forest trails, peace and isolation. Its comfortable facilities provide housing for up to 35 persons at one time.

Acharyas

The Order’s 27 acharyas conduct free public yoga classes and initiation seminars in more than a dozen countries. The Order in India publishes and distributes the manuscripts prepared by the Yoga Siddha Research Center scholars. It also organizes pilgrimages to sacred sites associated with the Siddha tradition both in south India and the Himlayas. For more information contact Vinod or by mail to: Babaji's Kriya Yoga Order of Acharyas, Post Box 5608, Malleswaram West, 560 055 Bangalore, India.

Through a network of over 18,000 initiated practitioners in twenty countries, the Order also organizes numerous initiation seminars, retreats, trainings and group practice meetings in Babaji’s Kriya Yoga.

Yoga Siddha Research Center: The Order has sponsored and guided the work of the Yoga Siddha Research Center in Chennai, Tamil Nadu India since 2000. This research center collects, preserves, transcribes, translates the ancient palm leaf manuscripts of the 18 Yoga Siddha tradition of India, with commentaries. The Order publishes these works of the Center and distributes them throughout India and the world. It also sponsors the scholars working for the center at various academic conferences. Six major books have been published to date. In 2010 the center has published a new English translation with commentary of the south India’s most important text related to Yoga: the Tirumandiram, by the Yoga Siddha Tirumular in ten volumes, 3 780 pages. A new edition of it was printed in 2013 in five volumes. Dr TN P Haran prepared a Guide book to 800 manuscripts of Siddhas poems. We will publish these on an accomparying CD in late 2014.
