Madan Pura Lane

Shyama Charan Lahiri, a great saint of the 19th century known as Lahiri Mahasaya or Kashi Baba, disseminated the Kriya Yoga teachings from his home in the holy Benares. This eminent "secret yogi" was spiritual guide and teacher of Paramahansa Yogananda's parents, his high school tutor, and his own guru Swami Sri Yukteswar.
