May 8: Babaji

Babaji means “Revered Father” and is described by Yogananda in his Autobiography of a Yogi as “the deathless guru.” Babaji is of unknown age, and lives in the Himalayas with a few highly advanced students. Yogananda called him “Babaji-Krishna”, saying that Babaji was Krishna in a former incarnation. Seeing that in the present scientific age, people were better prepared to receive higher knowledge, Babaji directed his disciple, Lahiri Mahasaya, to reintroduce the meditation science of Kriya Yoga to the world.

Ananda’s lineage of Masters are deeply rooted in the teachings of Self-realization. Each week we will explore the life of one of these great teachers, weaving together the story of their immense wisdom, power, and love. The masters come, not to show us how great they are, but to show us how great we, ourselves, can become.
