Level 1 Class


Level 1 class will be conducted on 17th March (Saturday) from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

The class covers the science of Meditation based on Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings, including:

* Why Meditate & What is Meditation
* Correct Meditation Posture
* The Hong-Sau technique of Meditation, a simple, yet powerful technique taught by Paramhansa Yogananda
* How the Divine is Experienced
* Applying Spiritual Teachings in Daily Life

For those interested in the sacred Kriya Yoga technique extolled in Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi, this class is the first step in a series of classes that culminate in Kriya Yoga.

Although, both types of seekers – those who want to receive Kriya Yoga and those who only wish to learn how to meditate – will benefit from this class.

Cost is ₹ 750 which includes a book on meditation.
