Paramahansa Yogananda traveled from India to America in 1920 to teach the practical means by which people in all walks of life could nurture their spiritual growth and awaken to self-and God-realization.He emphasized Kriya Yoga: intensive spiritual practices that can unify (yoga) one’s attention and awareness with the infinite. During his thirty-two years of service he lectured to multitudes of people, initiated more than one hundred thousand students, wrote books and magazine articles, founded several ashrams and temples, and directed the activities of an organization that continues to spread his teachings throughout the world.
