What is the objective of Kriya Yoga? Who is the founder?

The mind is the most important resource that we have. With a mind free of ku-samskaras, vacillating temperament and restlessness and endowed with good concentration and strong intellect we can achieve success in the material world and the spiritual world. Kriya Yoga helps us to develop that.

In the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, chapter 4 verse 1, the Lord says, “I first taught this imperishable Yoga to Vivasvaan (Sun god)”. So God is the first teacher of Kriya Yoga. In the Satya Yuga, Kriya Yoga was practiced by all. In the Treta Yuga, Lord Rama practiced Kriya Yoga.   Lord Krishna taught this Yoga to Arjuna and many others in the Dvapara Yuga, in the modern times, Babaji Maharaj reintroduced this Yoga to the world by teaching it to Lahiri Mahashaya.
