Till the advent of Parama Guru Sri Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji, the highest spiritual Master of Kriya Yoga, this practice had remained a strictly guarded secret handed over by disciplic succession from guru(spiritual master) to shishya(disciple). This tradition had remained within guru and disciple parampara (family) and with a few select yogis of the Himalayas. It demanded physical endurance of the highest degree and several hours of meditation in a single sitting.

Mahavatar Babaji was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Parama Guru Sri Sri Sri Bhoga Siddhar. He had undertaken the mission of spreading Kriya Yoga, to the door steps of suffering humanity and mankind. He has initiated and taught Kriya Yoga practice to several devotees and seekers and is the icon of Kriya Yoga tradition. At the behest of Parama Guru Sri Sri Sri Bhoga Siddhar (spiritual master) of Mahavatar Babaji, Babaji further simplified Kriya Yoga, according to the needs of the times and made it accessible in general to common folk, the householder and city dweller, who were unable to renounce their families / worldly duties and go to secluded places like the Himalayas but also benefit from the age old Kriya Yoga technique. The earliest known luminaries who were initiated in to Kriya Yoga are Sri Adi Shankaracharya, Kabir Das, Shirdi Sai Baba and Lahari Mahasaya
