Uniting the East and West
Celebrating 100 Years of Paramahamsa Yogananda - His Vision in Action
Global Celebrations 2020-21

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of Paramahamsa Yoganandaji's coming to the West, which was a turning point in the history of spirituality in the West and especially on the path of yoga. While the West had only heard the theory of yoga from Swami Vivekananda, Yoganandaji brought the message of yoga in practice. He introduced yoga as a dynamic path and a practical lifestyle, and also introduced related concepts like vegetarian food to the West.

Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji and the Kriya Yoga International organizations will celebrate this memorable anniversary with global celebrations under the theme "Uniting the East and West. Celebrating 100 years of Paramahamsa Yogananda - His Vision in Action". The goal of the celebrations is to share Paramahamsa Yoganandaji's teachings and spread awareness of Kriya Yoga that has been taught by this unbroken lineage of Kriya Yoga masters. Below is a table of currently planned programs for this 18 months celeberations.

Please contact your center/group leader for any question or feedback that you may have.
