What makes Atma Kriya Yoga unique?

Atma Kriya Yoga means ‘action with awareness of the soul’. Ultimately, it is a practice that gives you a lived experience of unconditional Divine Love. It is not merely a meditation practice; it is a way of living and loving life.

Spiritual Journey

Many on the spiritual path are seeking Self-realisation. While admirable, the ultimate goal of our human existence is to get to know God and to attain God-realisation.

One who is joyful within, whose pleasure is within, and is illumined within, is a true yogī. He is liberated within the Supreme, and he attains the Supreme.


Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5, verse 24

According to the Bhagavad Gita, the only way to do this is by building a personal relationship with God, which requires bhakti. Inviting the Divine into your life through Atma Kriya Yoga gives you a genuine experience of true unconditional love and lasting happiness.

Bhakti - Love and Devotion to God

Bhakti is pure love that expresses itself through devotion to God. Atma Kriya Yoga helps you cultivate a profound awareness of the eternal divinity that permeates everything and everyone, including yourself. The practice gives you proven techniques to build a uniquely personal relationship with the Divine with each breath and every beat of your heart.  


Kriya-yoga is beyond time. Over thousands of years of practice, ancient rishis and sages discovered techniques to still the mind, rise above the limitations of this physical reality and connect with the divinity that permeates all of creation. These techniques remained mostly secret until the mid-1800s. 

Mahavatar Babaji is the father of all kriya-yoga traditions.
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is the kriya master who brought Atma Kriya Yoga to the world. 



Mahavatar Babaji is an immortal yogi known as the father of all kriya-yoga traditions. He is the living embodiment of kriya-yoga. Through His grace and that of another kriya master, Paramahamsa Sri Swami  Vishwananda, this ancient knowledge is available today in the form of Atma Kriya Yoga. It is the kriya-yoga best suited to help you rapidly advance on your spiritual path, especially in the face of the turmoil of our current times. 

Kriya-yoga is an inside job

What's beautiful about this practice is not what you see or do on the outside, it is about what is happening on the inside. Outwardly, the practice helps you to focus the mind, which purifies emotions and helps you to manage life's upsets better. Inwardly, the kriya energy burns away lifetimes of karma, which allows the light of your soul to shine brighter, benefitting you and positively impacting those around you. 

Quality Over Quantity 

Atma Kriya Yoga techniques are so powerful that the number of repetitions is limited, leaving you more time to enjoy your life. The practice is not about quantity. It is about quality. Rather than focusing on accomplishment and achievement, the practice is about cultivating your own personal relationship with the Divine.

Atma Kriya Yoga helps you to bring the awareness of the Divine into every action you take. 
Chanting the Divine Name clears the mind and helps you establish a relationship with God. 
Turn your attention inwards to listen to the Divine.
Breathing in life is breathing in the Divine. 
Serve humanity by transforming your whole being into a beacon of Divine Love and Light. 
Practicing mudras balances the five elements in your body.
Asanas, yogic postures, remind us that our body is a temple for the Divine. 
The sincere practice of Atma Kriya Yoga frees you from the endless cycle of birth and death. 


Power and Love 

There are only 15 techniques in Atma Kriya Yoga; each one holds the essence and power of all kriya-yoga.  Each technique cultivates one of the nine forms of bhakti. Bringing awareness to the Divine in every action you take enriches your life and amplifies the love you experience. When done properly, with pure love and devotion, every single technique has the potential to take you to God-realisation. Setting aside time to practice is like making a date with Divine, it is the perfect way to cultivate your own personal relationship with God. 

Gift of Grace 

The gift of grace inherent in Atma Kriya Yoga is delivered through the Shaktipat Initiation. Due to the grace of all the kriya masters, and the Divine Mother, there is an innate intelligence in the practice that blossoms naturally. It organically guides each yogi throughout their journey to God, taking them step by step, at a pace that is just right for them. This grace is a seed that will sprout when the yogi has been purified enough to receive it.

Helping Humanity 

Everyone wants to experience true unconditional love and lasting happiness. Since everything in this physical reality is temporary and constantly changing this goal is difficult, if not impossible, to attain. It is only when we turn our attention to that which is eternal, God, that we can truly find lasting love and happiness.

Atma Kriya Yoga teaches you how to find the source of true unconditional Love within your own heart. It also allows you to be of service to humanity by transforming your whole being into a beacon of Divine Love and light, spreading joy and positivity everywhere you go.
