What is Babaji's Kriya Yoga?

The goal of life is happiness, peace, love and enlightenment. The desire for perfection comes from the Self, the image of God, which seeks to express itself through all humanity.

Babaji's Kriya Yoga is a scientific art of God, Truth union and Self-Realization. It was revived by a great master of India, Babaji Nagaraj, as a synthesis of ancient teachings of the 18 Siddha tradition. It includes a series of techniques or 'kriyas' grouped into five phases or branches. Paramahamsa Yogananda taught that practice of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama can accelerate the natural progression of Divine Consciousness in human beings.

Kriya Yoga: Insights Along the Path Kriya Yoga: Insights Along the Path
Marshall Govindan and Jan (Durga) Ahlund

My wife, Jan "Durga" Ahlund and I have recognized for many years the need for a book that would explain to both those interested in learning Kriya Yoga and those already embarked on its path, why they should practice it, what are the difficulties, and how to overcome them. We believe that this book will help prepare everyone for the challenges and opportunities that Kriya Yoga provides. Every one of us faces the resistance of our human nature, ignorance as to our true identity, and karma, the consequences of years of conditioning by our thoughts, words and actions. By cultivating aspiration for the Divine, rejecting egoism and its manifestations, and surrendering to our higher Self, pure Witness consciousness, we can overcome this resistance, our karma and the many obstacles on the path. But, to do so, we need much support and insight along the way.

Truth SpeaksNew Ebook: "Truth Speaks" by Yoga Siddha Sivavakkiyar
translation and commentary by Drs. Geetha Anand and T.N. Ganapathy

“Who am I? Why am I here? How did I get here?” These are some of the questions that have been plaguing mankind since time immemorial. Various attempts to answer these questions have led to the evolution of the religions and philosophies of the world. The Tamil Siddhas or mystical saints from South India have answered these questions in the form of poems in vernacular that are popularly called Siddar Padalgal or Songs of the Siddhas. These songs are famous for their non-conforming and revolutionary ideas besides their bluntness and forthright directness. One of the Tamil Siddhas, Sivavakkiyar is a well-known “pious rebel” who composed "Truth Speaks" (Civavakkiyam), a collection of around 530 verses on topics ranging from kundalini yoga to social issues.

George Feuerstein Bhagavad Gita DVD SeminarNew DVD: "The Bhagavad Gita: Values for the 21st Century, a video recorded seminar with Dr. Georg Feuerstein, Ph. D"

Recorded at the Babaji’s Kriya Yoga Ashram in St Etienne de Bolton, Quebec, Canada on June 30, 2001. 6 hours 29 minutes

The Bhagavad Gita or Sacred Song is one or the world’s most important sacred texts. It celebrates the relationship of man with God, the intense joy of Divine Love and the realization of the Self through Yoga. In the form of a dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna on the eve of a battle, Krishna teaches the fearful Arjuna the need for action and the requirement that he – like all mankind – take his place in the world with faith and love.

This is a rare recording, nearly six and one half hours in length, by perhaps the West’s greatest scholar of Yoga in modern times, the late Dr. Georg Feuerstein (1947 to 2012). Those who have enjoyed reading his more than thirty books on the subject of Yoga will enjoy even more listening to and watching one whose great scholarship was uniquely informed by his profound experience of the deeper dimensions of Yoga

George Feuerstein Tantra DVD SeminarNew DVD: "Tantra: a video recorded seminar with Dr. Georg Feuerstein, Ph. D"

Recorded at the Babaji’s Kriya Yoga Ashram in St Etienne de Bolton, Quebec, Canada, July 1, 2001. 6 hours 24 minutes.

The spiritual tradition known as tantra, often associated with Kundalini Yoga, teaches that enlightenment must embrace all dimensions of our existence, including the physical. It involves removing subconscious obstacles through various methods, including mantras, hatha yoga, kundalini breathing, and the worship of the divine shakti or power, first externally, and then internally.

This is a rare recording, nearly six and one half hours in length, by perhaps the West’s greatest scholar of Yoga in modern times, the late Dr. Georg Feuerstein (1947 to 2012). Those who have enjoyed reading his more than thirty books on the subject of Yoga will enjoy even more listening to and watching one whose great scholarship was uniquely informed by his profound experience of the deeper dimensions of Yoga.

A Kriya Hatha Yoga Intensive, June 29 - July 13, 2016 at the Quebec Ashram
Durga Ahlund, Marshall Govindan, Pierre Desjardins,
Ganga Auer, Vyasa Lawson

Quebec Ashram

As a student of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga, you are cordially invited to become a Teacher of Babaji’s Kriya Hatha Yoga! One of the best ways to deepen your own practice of Kriya Yoga and to serve others is by teaching this wonderful scientific art.

This Yoga teacher training has been designed to meet the 300-hour International certification standards, as set up by the Yoga Alliance. A 250-page manual/workbook accompanies the course. On completion of an intensive 14-day residential training, students will begin a yearlong process of teaching and study, completing various assignments, which will not only fulfill training requirements, but which will serve your own wellness and spiritual growth.

This program is largely experiential, focusing on personal transformation as well as developing professional skill. Students must be currently practicing Kriya Yoga, have taken the BKY 1st and 2nd level trainings and have a well-established daily practice. Participants must have practiced Hatha Yoga for a minimum of two years. This is an intensive training program and all participants should have good physical and emotional health.

The 14-day residential course curriculum is appropriate for those who do not plan to become teachers of Hatha Yoga, but merely want to better understand how Kriya Yoga works on the body and being, and want to deepen their spiritual experience of Yoga and meditation. The curriculum covers not only a thorough understanding of the anatomical mechanics of 18 asana of Kriya Hatha Yoga and structural alignment, but also the physical and spiritual benefits and the theory behind the asana selection and what occurs energetically as we practice them. Additional asana will be explored and integrated into our training. We will begin an in-depth study of the Sutras of Patanjali and Bhagavad Gita. We will experience the energy of prana and the subtle body and deeply explore the practices of bandhas, pra-nayama and meditation and learn how to teach them safely.
