On December 7, 2002 The Boston Globe reported that "monks have been flying in from around the world this week to stand vigil for the guru of Kriya Yoga [Paramahamsa Hariharananda], who died... at age 95 Tuesday of pneumonia... He had lived in South Dade [FL] for five years and his global organization is headquartered there... Not a religion, and accepting people of all faiths, Kriya followers believe spiritual energy is drawn through the crown of the head, and that concentration on breath draws one closer to God."
