What is Kriya Yoga?

Mahavatar Babaji – The founder of Kriya Yoga

Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique which takes us inside to Silence, to a level of no conflict. The techniques are based on the breath, the awareness and the energy centers (chakras) in the spine – developed and tested through thousands of years, based on a rich and ancient tradition.

The techniques are simple and effective. In a retreat, one receives initiation in the 1st Kriya which comprises of six techniques. There are further higher Kriyas, up to the 7th, which is subsequently given according to individual’s preparedness through regular practice.

When the body is born we start to breathe, when the body dies the breath leaves the body. This is happening all the time, we are breathing in and out. We inhale new life from the source, and we exhale that which is dead from the body. To realise who we are, our unity with life, we have to be consciously connected to the source of life through the breath.

About Per H. Wibe

Per H. Wibe

Since 1976 pursuing spiritual efforts, Per started to give Kriya Yoga initiations in 1997. From his first day of teaching he said: “Be deeply inside. What you experience is because of Life, it is not my power”. He is connected to Mahavatar Babaji tradition through his Kriya Yoga teacher Swami Shankarananda Giri.

He has lived an ordinary life with family and business activities. At the same time he has devoted most of his leisure time for forty years to meditation, spiritual studies and teaching. Personal experiences, a result of spiritual efforts for many years, inspire him to say: “I am not there, only an unlimited space and the experience”. Per is teaching Kriya Yoga in a practical and simple way, taking his students to the essence: to a level of non-duality, to an inner experience of Silence.

He has been teaching Kriya Yoga in many parts of the world during the last 22 years and all over India for the last 12 years.

Kriya Yoga Meditation Retreats

Kriya Yoga Retreats are structured programs with longer meditations and experiences of Silence. Longer periods with deep meditations are a great inspiration for our daily practice. According to the Kriya yoga tradition, longer periods with deep meditations are recommended to be taken every year. Everyone is invited to experience the Unity of Life, in friendship and harmony.

If you are not initiated in Kriya Yoga before, you will receive initiation in the retreat

It is said that Kriya Yoga has existed from the beginning of the creation, that it is the real meditation, the essence of life.

It is true, since Kriya simply means the breath, the life.

Words by Per

What is Life?

True spirituality is to realize that we are united with Him, to be friend with him, God or Life – whatever we call it. The realization is not found in big words or in the scriptures but in an inner actual experience. A good and stable practice along with activities of practical life is very helpful. In this context, here are some short practical words that Master Per H. Wibe often says to his students during the course of their meditation retreats. Life "My technique? I practice life." In the end, it’s not about the amount of techniques. It’s about a strong desire for Truth,…

The Magical Kriya Yoga

Vanisha Uppal's Kriya Experience   I am into Kriya yoga practice since 5 years and organizing kriya retreat for Master Per at different places in India. Let me tell you that I have never read any book on kriya yoga. And I thank God for it. I started my practice without much expectations, my first experience was that I felt good, peaceful and strongly connected to my inner self. And I wanted this totally. Whatever I experience thereafter, is my own first-hand experience with my constant practice. That helps me to grow with my own inner understanding. Often I meet people in the retreats with the strange expectations. All the books written on Kriya yoga may inspire people to learn…

Silence is planted in our hearts like the seeds of the wild flowers are planted in the soil.

Silence and activity are two sides of the same issue
