About Kriya Yoga
Kriya Yoga is an ancient Yoga system revived in modern times by Mahaavatar Babaji. It is said that Mahaavatar Babaji recieved Kriya Yoga from Bhagwan Shri Krishna himself.
According to the ancient Yogic text the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, contains a description of Kriya Yoga in the second chapter II.49 "Liberation can be attained by that pranayama which is accomplished by disjoining the course of inspiration and expiration."
The Kriya yoga system consists of a number of levels of pranayama, mantra, and mudra based on techniques intended to rapidly accelerate spiritual development and engender a profound state of tranquility and God-communion.
The Guru Shishya lineage: Mahaavatar Babaji, Shri Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteshwara Giri, Paramhansa Yogananda - all of them have preached Kriya Yoga. Kriya Yoga is traditionally exclusively learned via the Guru-disciple relationship and the initiation consists of a Diksha (Initiation ceremony).
"By the definite science of meditation known for millenniums to the yogis and sages of India, and to Jesus, any seeker of God can enlarge the caliber of his consciousness to omniscience to receive within himself the Universal Intelligence of God."
Kriya Yoga was lost for centuries in the dark ages, and reintroduced in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji, whose disciple Lahiri Mahasaya (1828-1895) was the first to teach it openly in our era. Later, Babaji asked Lahiri Mahasaya's disciple, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri (1855-1936), to train Paramahansa Yogananda and send him to the West to give this soul-revealing technique to the world.
About Yogendra Rajput
Yogendra Rajput is an IT professional with more than 16 years of experience, he has worked with many Multinational companies till date. His spiritual journey started from 1999, when he got in touch with some monks and spiritually enlightened people. Very often he used to have the dream that he is walking on the lake with one young man besides a lake that is full of snakes and crocodiles. Yogendra could not understand this dream for many months.
Eventually one fine day - he got his hands on a book called "Autobiography of a Yogi" written by Shri Parahamsa Yogananda which can be accessed here: https://www.ananda.org/free-inspiration/books/autobiography-of-a-yogi/
Whilst Yogendra was reading the book and saw the pictures within, he immediately recognized the picture of that Young Monk who used to come in his dreams and walk along the lake - it was none other than Mahaavatar Babaji.
From that day onwards Yogendra's inner journey started and Yogendra started meditating - however he could not find any person who could guide him and give him Diksha. However during the course of time he automatically learnt a lot of breathing techniques which came to him naturally and started enjoying those.
In 2012 Yogendra met with a person named Gyan Swami in Pune who himself revealed that he has taken Diksha from Babaji himself and that he lived it Babaji for 3 years. Yogendra learnt several techniques from Gyan Swami.
In January 2017 Yogendra had a chance to visit Mahaavatar Babaji's cave up in the Himalayas along with a group from Maharashtra. While onwards to the cave Yogendra felt a deep sense of deja vu - as if he had been there before - not just once or twice but more like having lived there along with Babaji. It was in the cave that Yogendra was re-assured and in Dhyaan Yogendra was given the task of preaching Kriya Yoga and to take it to as much as people as possible.

EziiTours बरोबर मी गिरनार वारी केली होती...कधीही न विसरता येईल असा सुंदर अनुभव ह्या वारी मधे आला... मी व्यक्तीश: चेतन चे आभार मानतो की त्याने ह्या ठिकाणाचे दर्शन उत्तम रितीने घडवुन आणले.. चेतनच्या पुढील सहलिंना शुभेच्छा..
सौराष्ट्रात काठेवाड प्रांतात जुनागड संस्थानात गिरनार पर्वत स्थित आहे..साधू संतांच्या वास्तव्याने पुनीत झालेल्या या पर्वतावर दत्तगुरूंचा नित्य निवास असतो.दत्तगुरूंच्या कृपाशिर्वादाची अनुभूति घेण्यासाठी गिरनारला इजी टूरसोबत जरूर भेट द्या. जय गिरनारी पार लगा दो नैय्या हमारी
सर्वात प्रथम तुमचे मनापासून आभार की तुमच्यासोबत मला द्वारका-सोमनाथ-गिरनार ही ट्रिप करायला मिळाली. खुप दिवसांपासून गिरनार दर्शन करायचं मनात होतं ते तुमच्यामुळे शक्य झाले. बाकी तुमच्या सर्व्हिसबद्दल सांगायचे तर खूप उत्तम दर्जाची सर्व्हिस मिळाली. एक धार्मिक ट्रिप असून सुद्धा कुठल्याही प्रकारची कमतरता नव्हती. पुण्यापासूनचा एकूण प्रवास, जेवण, हॉटेल या सर्वांची खुप उत्तम सोय तुम्ही केली, कमी पैसे घेऊनसुद्धा यांच्या दर्जात कुठल्याही प्रकारची तडजोड केली नाही. ...
