By Paramahansa Yogananda

Kriya Yoga is a path to inner peace and Self-realization made popular by Paramahansa Yogananda’s book Autobiography of a Yogi. The path itself is one that utilizes specific mantra meditation, breath awareness techniques and Self-inquiry.

Nine years ago I was authorized and ordained to share and teach Kriya Yoga by a direct student of Paramahansa Yoganada. Since that time, when the opportunity has arisen I’ve done my best to provide that service and having walked this path everyday for the last 14 years, I have found it to be the greatest and most fulfilling inner work I have ever done. I have found peace with my Self and gained greater understanding about my relationship with the Divine. The realizations and happiness derived from this practice cannot be compared to any other activity in this world.

It is my goal and intention in this Webinar to share with you the same practices that have proven so effective for me. I also intend on sharing personal struggles and inspirations to give a realistic understanding of just what IS required to experience inner peace and greater awareness of the Divine presence within and around you.

In this Kriya Yoga Webinar you will learn:

  • How to meditate effectively
  • Kriya Yoga Pranayama Techniques as I learned them during initiation and only alluded to in Autobiography of a Yogi
  • Effective Kriya Yoga meditation routines for all levels of practice from beginner to advanced
  • the philosophical understanding of true Yoga practice as taught in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
  • The kind of lifestyle that leads to greater success on the Self-realization path
  • How to practice contemplation and Self-inquiry to realize directly the truth of your being

Due to the real-time nature of this Webinar, we are able to also have Q&A sessions where participation will be encouraged to make certain you understand the process and how to apply it.

Effects of Vimshottari Dasha: Determining the Trends and Probabilities of Life Events  — 5 Week Class

(There are currently only 5 spots left and the class begins June 1st, 2014.)

The ability to accurately judge the development and outcome of someone’s horoscope based on the dashas and bhuktis operating at any particular time is a skill that is acquired gradually and as a result of careful study and analysis.  It draws upon all of our knowledge of how to assess the horoscope, its avashtas, vargas, strengths and weaknesses.

How will the life of Vishnu unfold through time and space?

How will the life of Vishnu unfold through time and space?

If we can read a birth chart, then we can begin to see when the karmas held within the horoscope will give their effects.  The goal of this course is demonstrate and explore how planetary positions, planetary dignity, the avashtas, and the divisional charts can all be woven together to see the tapestry of life unfolding into specific events.

This is an advanced class. It is advised that you have read The Art and Science of Vedic Astrology and AT LEAST have studied and completed the free introductory course available on http://www.youtube.com/user/RyansVedicAstrology.
