... Yogiraj Shyamacharan Lahiree
Yogiraj Sri Shyamacharan Lahiree is the Fountain-Head of Kriyayoga, the same yogasadhana that has been practised in Sanatana Bharata since aeons by the great sages of the past. At the end of Kaliyuga, Bhagavan Shyamacharan made His Advent as a Householder to give declining Kriyayoga a push. During His lifetime by juxtaposing ordinary household existence with austere yogasadhana, He has reminded mankind of the ideal of Sanatana Bharata. He is therefore known as the God of Householders. more
