Learn about Kriya Yoga, a scientific practice of meditation that cultivates body, mind, and intellect using powerful meditative and yogic disciplines. Practicing Kriya Yoga develops a one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and to change our lives. It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries. Kriya Yoga was reintroduced to the world in 1861 by Mahavatar Babaij to Lahiri Mahasaya, who taught Swami Shriyukteshwar, the Guru of Paramahamsas Yogananda and Hariharananda.

Richard was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Paramahamsa Hariharananda in 1979. He lives with his wife Judy, also initiated in 1979, in Los Angeles and has two grown children. Richard holds a Master of Arts degree in Education and teaches music and English in the Los Angeles Unified School District. He was authorized to teach Kriya Yoga in May 2007.
