Babaji's Kriya Yoga Initiations

In Babaji's Kriya Yoga the significance of initiation is often overlooked. Initiation is a sacred act in which an individual is given their initial experience of a means to realizing some truth. That means is a kriya or "practical yogic technique," and the truth is a portal to the eternal and infinite One. Because this truth is beyond name and form, it cannot be communicated through words or symbols. It can be experienced however, and for this one needs a teacher who can share his or her own living experience of the truth. The technique becomes a vehicle by which the teacher shares with the practioner the means to realize the truth in oneself.

1. Initiation into Kriya Yoga is taught in an intensive weekend seminar. One will learn the system of 18 postures developed by Babaji for greater health, relaxation and energy; the 6 phases of the powerful breathing technique known as "Kriya Kundalini Pranayama" to awaken and circulate subtle energies; 7 techniques of meditation to cleanse the subconscious, to master the mind and to bring about realization of the Self and Absolute Reality. There is no charge for the initiations. The suggested contributions will, however, cover the average cost involved. The suggested contribution is $300. At the Quebec Ashram this includes the cost of lodging and meals.

2. Spiritual retreat (2nd initiation): during a weekend in the country, close to nature, learn powerful techniques for awakening the chakras, yogic rest, silence, mantras, meditation during activities, and how to integrate yoga into daily activities. Suggested contribution: $300 including lodging and meals.

3. Advanced Training (3rd initiation): The initiation involves training in 144 Kriyas of meditation, breathing and postures culminating in a series of techniques designed to induce the state of "samadhi", the breathless state of communion with God and Absolute Reality. These 144 Kriyas include specific techniques to awaken the chakras, to develop the latent faculties or "siddhis", and to experience a personal relationship with each of the 18 Siddhas and Babaji. They are rich and diverse and will help to bring about an integrated development on all levels of your being, physically, vitally, mentally, intellectually and spiritually. They do include several which you have already learned at the retreat or first initiation.

4. Monthly Classes: at more than 40 cities around the world, initiates of Babaji's Kriya Yoga meet to study and meditate on the classic texts of yoga and to share experiences.

5. Public Weekly Meetings: at various places around the world, learn the 18 postures of Kriya Hatha Yoga and be introduced to Babaji's Kriya Yoga by its practitioners.

6. Suggested contribution: initiations and other activities are given on a suggested contribution basis only. We never allow money to become a condition or obstacle to learning Babaji's Kriya Yoga. Where interested persons do not have money, it is given free.
