Kriya Yoga Master
Born with Full Knowledge
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda was born a Kriya Yoga Master with full awareness and mastery of all Kriya Yoga techniques. Through His Grace, and the Grace of His Guru, Mahavatar Babaji, the world is blessed with Atma Kriya Yoga.
Atma Kriya Yoga techniques cultivate bhakti, which allows you to experience and enjoy a uniquely personal relationship with the Divine. It is this relationship, in addition to the Shakitpat Initiation, that helps clear the way so you can rapidly advance on your spiritual path.
Kriya Yoga Sadhana
Kriya Yoga is an ancient meditative yogic tradition brought to the world by Mahavatar Babaji to help humanity attain self-mastery and realise the Divine.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda teaches that the path to mastery is through sadhana, a consistent structured spiritual practice. As a Kriya Yoga Master, He has chosen Kriya Yoga as the primary meditative sadhana for Bhakti Marga.
2007 Kriya Yoga for Today
Paramahamsa Vishwananda is a direct disciple of Mahavatar Babaji who asked Him to bring a new form of Kriya Yoga to the world. Together they chose the Kriya Yoga techniques best suited for our current times and in 2007, Paramahamsa Vishwananda introduced Atma Kriya Yoga through Bhakti Marga.
Atma Kriya Yoga
Atma Kriya Yoga means 'action with awareness of the soul'. Paramahamsa Vishwananda says the fastest way to develop this awareness, and attain the Divine, is through bhakti.
Each Atma Kriya Yoga technique is specifically designed to cultivate one of the nine forms of bhakti. Awakening love and devotion for the Divine allows you to enjoy the Divine through your practise, moment by moment, breath by breath.
Atma Kriya Yoga includes a Shaktipat Initiation which is a transference of spiritual energy that pours the Grace of all Kriya Yoga Masters into the student. Through the Grace of Paramahamsa Vishwananda and Mahavatar Babaji, this blessing plants the seeds necessary for God-realisation and rapid advancement on the spiritual path.
Every student who receives Shaktipat is automatically initiated into the Kriya Yoga lineage.
Bhakti Marga Sadhana in the World
Paramahamsa Vishwananda's inborn mastery of Kriya Yoga uniquely qualifies Him to initiate teachers and guide others on the path. He has initiated an extraordinary number of teachers.
As of 2017, 225 Atma Kriya Yoga teachers, on six continents, have been initiated and received the blessing to teach and give Shaktipat Initiations to others.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda has also blessed a number of other practices derived from Atma Kriya to help students experience the power of a personal practice and to pave the way for deepening their relationship with the Divine.
