Public Lectures Held By Kriya Yoga Guru Paramahansa Atmananda 

Kriya yoga guru Paramahansa Atmanandaji was in Atlanta from Nov 24 through Dec 8. Free public lectures were conducted at Georgia Tech, North Atlanta Shirdi Sai Baba temple and Emory University. Topics included managing thoughts, emotions and stress through Kriya yoga, Kriya Yoga and Bhagwat Geeta and its relevance in the modern world and how to get happiness and peace in life.

Many people attended these lectures with the renowned master and came to know about the science behind Kriya yoga. Guruji elaborated on some Kriya yoga techniques and their beneficial effects on calming the mind. He also explained the relevance of Bhagavat Geeta in the modern life and the importance of reading, understanding and practicing it in a day to day life. 
Some new members joined the Kriya yoga family too. 

“Usually, when we talk about spirituality we think of austerity, a life of penance, no family life, Himalayan caves etc,” a press note released by the group explained. “Guruji says that we need to lead a normal life and maintain a balance between our material and spiritual lives for a happy, prosperous and stress-free state of mind. Spirituality does not mean that you can't perform the duties of a householder.”

Atlanta Kriya Yoga group is one such family of people who are in search of the light of wisdom in their hearts. The family is devoted to the ancient teachings of Adi Guru Bhagwan Sri Krisna and the science of Kriya Yoga, pranayama and meditation, which is referred to by the Yogapurush & Yugpurusha Bhagwaan Sri Krisna himself in the Gita.

A few years ago the Atlanta kriya yoga family was founded under the inspiration, guidance and blessings of Sri Paramahansa Atmanandaji, with the aim of improving the quality and quantity of life, managing thoughts and emotions, and bringing happiness and peace through Kriya Yoga, which is the ancient art & science of self help and realization.

Pujya Guruji Paramahansa Atmanandaji was a neurologist by profession before His monkhood. Devoted to God, he started practicing Yoga since childhood. He has been practicing Kriya Yoga while he was a practicing neurologist and became a renowned master, preacher and practitioner of the science of Kriya Yoga and the Spiritual science of the Vedas.
