Kriyayoga Research Institute, situated on the bank of the Holy Ganga (Ganges River), is an international home for all to enjoy and experience the most complete lifestyle, an extraordinary blend of the ancient spirituality of India and modern science. Kriyayoga Research Institute was founded in 1983 under the name of Yog Satsang Samiti and Kriyayoga Satsang Samiti. The aim of the institute is to spread the ancient, original, yet ever-new Science of Kriyayoga to the world under the blessed instruction and guidance of Kriyayoga Master and Scientist, Founder and President - Guruji Swami Shree Yogi Satyam.
Kriyayoga Research Institute is primarily focused on spreading the original spiritual science - Kriyayoga Meditation, in India, and all over the world. By doing so, a dedicated and sincere community will be built to not only bring about national development, but also national and international peace and harmony. In this way, Kriyayoga Research Institute aims to build a United World community that crosses all egoistic boundaries - geographical, racial, religious and cultural.
This auspicious event took place as described in the comprehensive spiritual classic - Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda. It was here that Mahavatar Babaji instructed Shree Yukteshwarji on specific Kriyayoga teachings and prophesied the future worldwide spread of Kriyayoga for the benefit of humanity. Each year, many people from around the world visit Kriyayoga Research Institute in Allahabad. Each of them arrives seeking something different, yet they all return home with much more than they ever anticipated – a deeper, true sense of their life purpose.
Kriyayoga Research Institute, Allahabad, is a unique site because it features the Holy Banyan tree, which was consecrated by Mahavatar Babaji when he met and blessed Swami Shree Yukteshwarji during the Kumbha Mela in 1894.
