Swami Shankarananda

Swami Shankarananda Giri is a spiritual heir in the Kriya Yoga tradition, and teaches these techniques in its original form as they were transmitted by the lineage of masters.

Those who desire to receive instructions in this path as a means for spiritual evolution, are invited to make contact with one of the centres. Swami Shankarananda Giri has been teaching Kriya Yoga techniques in India since 1974, and in Europe since 1978. He has also inherited the astrological system called Cosmic Astrology from his master Swami Narayana Giri (“Prabhujee”). This system was established by Shri Yukteswar.

Swami Shankarananda Giri is also the founder of three schools in India. The first school, running for over fifteen years, is named after his Guru and has over 1000 students following the Indian Government defined curriculum as well as providing financial support for poor students, ayurvedic medical treatments, hatha yoga classes, meditaton classes, a free school library and computer lab classes.

” Swami Shankarananda Giri has started to implement new projects. First he hired a new superintendent  who is very efficient and highly motivated . The school/orphanage of Baishnav Jhuli is also a farm that produces vegetables, fruits and even mushrooms! Swami Shankarananda Giri has started to build a second floor on the main building that will become children’s bedrooms and a new meditation room with AC. ”
