Welcome to the 25th International Intensive Kriya Yoga Seminar (IIKYS) at Shri Hariharananda Gurukulam in Balighai, Puri, India, commencing on January 14, 2024. This event signifies a momentous milestone in the rich history of Kriya Yoga, and it fills us with gratitude for the countless Kriyavans who have graced our seminars with their presence over the years.
IIKYS is the visionary creation of Shri Guruji Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji, who conceived a gathering where dedicated Kriya Yoga practitioners from across the globe could unite for seven days of profound meditation and contemplation. As we celebrate the Silver Jubilee year (25th) of IIKYS in 2024, we embark on a special journey, reflecting upon the theme:
'ātmano mokśārthaṁ jagat hitāyaca’
Self-realization and the welfare of the world
This seven-day Seminar will encompass initiation programs (deeksha), meditation classes, Kriya Yoga workshops, enlightening lectures by revered monks and acharyas, soul-stirring bhajans, and the uplifting nama sankirtan. Our aim is to offer participants a comprehensive understanding of life, selfless service (seva), the intricacies of the mind, the transformative power of Kriya practice, and ultimately, the path to spiritual enlightenment.
