WHAT IS KRIYA YOGA ?
Kriya Yoga is a meditation technique which takes us inside to Silence, to a level of no conflict. The techniques are based on the breath, the awareness and the energy centers (chakras) in the spine – developed and tested through thousands of years, based on a rich and ancient tradition.
The techniques are simple and effective. In a retreat one receives inititation in the 1st Kriya which comprises of six techniques. There are further higher Kriyas, up to the 7th, which is subsequently given according to individual’s preparedness through regular practice.
Paramahansa Yogananda describes Kriya Yoga as an excellent tool to enhance human evolution and to attain Self Realization in his best selling book “Autobiography of a Yogi”.
Kabir Budethe fir ubre, guru ki lahri chamki
bera dekha jhanjera, utarike bhaye farki
Kabir says that just when he was about to drown, he was rescued. He saw/received a wave/impulse from the Guru. The light of wave/impulse revealed that his boat was actually full of holes like a stainer. He left that boat and now stays away from it.
