In 1917 he founded the Yogoda Sat-sang school for boys in Calcutta (now Kolkata). In 1920 he went to the United States where he lectured widely, teaching a secret technique of meditation, which he called kriya yoga.

His organization, which has its headquarters in Los Angeles, has centers throughout the world.
