"Kriya Yoga will spread in all lands"
(Mahavatar Babaji)

Kriya Yoga initiation

In September 2005 I was ordained by Mr. Roy Eugene Davis (a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda) as a minister of Center for Spiritual Awareness, the spiritual organization he founded in the seventies, and I was authorized by him to initiate sincere seekers in the kriya yoga tradition of Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda and their successors.

Kriya means “action”. We consider as “kriyas” every action performed in order to spiritually improve our lives and as “kriya pranayama” a specific meditation technique that Mavahatar Babaji taught to Lahiri Mahasaya in the middle of the nineteenth century, which has the purpose (and the effect) of accelerating spiritual growth.
In order to learn kriya yoga, the first step to take is to read the book “Autobiography of a yogi”, written by Paramahansa Yogananda. The book describes wonderfully the lives of this great spiritual master and his gurus, giving also some general explanations about the philosophy and practice of kriya yoga. After reading the book, the second step to take is to look for a knowledgeable teacher who can teach you the basics and then, that be the case, initiate you.
Initiation is the ceremony through which a person decides to enter "with both feet" the path of Kriya Yoga. Initiation is a "new beginning" where the kriya pranayama is learnt and the devotee commits to do his best in order to realize his real nature. I invite you to visit Center for Spiritual awareness' page on kriya yoga in order to get more information on philosophy and practices.
My name is Furio Sclano and I was born in Italy. I run, along with some friends of mine who have been kriyabans for many years, a meditation group officially affiliated to Center for Spiritual Awareness. I am also a travelling minister: I occasionally present seminars in various Italian cities and abroad. It is my goal to visit as many countries as possible to spread this philosophy. If you have pleasure at organizing a seminar in your country, you can read my presentation at the bottom of this page and get in touch with me. If necessary, I am available to travel all over Europe. If you have questions of any kind related to kriya yoga, you can contact me anytime. I will be pleased to be of assistance to the best of my abilities.

I gave a short talk (9 minutes) at the Kriya Yoga congress in San Jose, California (March 2010)

Do you run a yoga center or are you interested in kriya yoga philosophy?
I am trying to develop contacts all over the world. Please read my presentation
