Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique that quickly accelerates one’s spiritual      growth toward the goal of yoga: union with the Divine. It was first made widely available by Paramhansa Yogananda in his Autobiography of a Yogi.  Kriya consists of easy-to-learn techniques to increase concentration and awareness, promote deeper meditation, and increase our energy.
