About Shibendu Lahiri

Currently, Shri Shibendu Lahiri, a yogi available to Truth, guides people throughout the world to be free from their sorrows and sufferings by the seeds of Kriya Yoga in them during the initiation. Shibendu was initiated in 1960 by his father Late Satya Charan Lahiri at the family shrine "Satyalok" D 22/3, Chousatti Ghat, Varanasi - 221 001 (India).

Like his ancestors, Shibendu Lahiri (born December 31, 1938) is also a house-holder and has passed through all aspects being a human so that spiritual journey does not appear too steep for the seekers. He received high university education and supported his family well, through remunerative jobs. His two daughters and their husbands are specialised medical doctors and his only son, also married, is an erudite engineer.


Since 14 January 1988, Shibendu spends his time sharing the teachings and the kriyas all around the world. Year in and year out, he travels at the invitation of devotees and disciples. Countries he has covered so far are: USA (including Hawaii and Puerto Rico), Canada, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, South Africa, Mauritius, Chile (South America), Norway, Singapore, Malaysia, Germany, Bulgaria, Russia, Nepal, Sweden, Netherland, England, New Zealand, Brazil, Greece and of course, various places in India. Many other nationals also came to him during his kriya-Yoga programmes in many places.


Between December 1, 1999 to December 8, 1999 on the eve of the new millennium, he addressed the World Parliament of Religions held at Cape Town in South Affrica (Over a hundred years earlier, in 1893, Swami Vivekananda had first spoken at the Chicago Parliament) He spoke on “Kriya Yoga” : The sacred practice for evolving and uniting humanity. 

Shibendu Lahiri has no organisation, institution, sect or cult. He has no ambition to influence anybody. He only invites seekers to share the insight which flowered, generation after generation, through Kriya process. His yearning is to see that human beings live in peace and amity without ache, agony and animosity, without this monstrous culture of killing and being killed in the name of some fragmented flag or phoney fanatic idea in the name of religion.

Kriya deconditions and sets the seeker free from the past karma. It transforms fundamentally the gross ego-centre of the seeker into a subtle individual uniqueness which also includes universality. It brings harmony with the wholeness of life by piercing through the ignorance of the ways of self.
