Daily Reflections

Paramahamsa Hariharananda was born on the 27th of May,1907,in the hamlet of habibpur,on the banks of the sacred river Ganga, in the district of Nadia,west Bengal. Endowed with uncommon and marvelous brainpower, in his childhood he memorized all the intricate mantras, hymns and prayers. At the age of eleven, he took the vow of brahmacharya. He met his Guru, swami shriyukteshwar in 1932, and received initiation into Kriya yoga.He is the divine link with all the great masters of Kriya Yoga. Under swami shriyukteshwars guidance, he learnt astrology, astronomy and palmistry, along with strict discipline and meditation. He got initiation into second Kriya from Paramahamsa Yogananda and in 1940, Swami satyananda initiated him into third Kriya and subsequently he learned the other higher Kriyas from Sanyal Mahasaya. In 1951, paramahamsa Yogananda empowered him to initiate sincere seekers into Kriya Yoga and from that time onwards, he started teaching the divine technique of Kriya Yoga to thousands of people, leading them along the spiritual path. On the day of his birthday, in 1959, he become the saffron garbed Swami hariharananda Giri, and later received the title of paramahamsa, indicating the highest spiritual achievement. Paramahamsa Hariharananda was the last of the living great realized Masters within the Kriya Yoga lineage, and a legend among spiritual seekers. He attained nirvikalpa Samadhi , the state of no pulse and no breath, in total communion with God.
