How can Kriya Yoga help
and benefit me?
Babaji's Kriya Yoga is taught
in a series of initiation seminars. It consists of a progressive
series of Kriya Yoga techniques which bring about an integrated
development of the individual. The rich variety of techniques
brings about a complete transformation of the sincere practitioner.
Among its benefits are physical healing and increased levels of
energy, balancing of the emotions, mental calm, increased concentration,
inspiration, wisdom and spiritual Self-realization. It includes
a daily Yoga practice of various Kriyas, or techniques, which
not only provide great strength, stability and peace, but also
makes one dynamic and visionary. It brings balance and tranquility
to the body and mind by reducing both restlessness and inertia.
It is appropriate for all those who wish to transform themselves
in the body, mind and spirit. It is for anyone who is searching
to establish an open pathway towards their soul. It is for anyone
who seeks discover how in the words of Jesus, the Kingdom of Heaven
is accessible here on Earth. It is for anyone who wants to have
more joy and happiness in their life and in their relationship
with others. It is effective for one and all, regardless of their
cultural, social or religious affiliation, age, sex or previous
Kriya Yoga views life as series
synchronistic events, pleasurable and problematic, unfolding at
the right time and place. The techniques of Kriya Yoga, including
Kriya Yoga asanas (physical postures), Kriya pranayama breathing,
Kriya mantra (sacred sound syllables) and Kriya meditation work
integrally to raise one's consciousness and energetic level. This
allows one to view both kinds of events as opportunities for growth
and for lessons learned.
Kriya Yoga is a physical, vital,
mental, intellectual and spiritual sadhana, or discipline,
in which one remembers one's true Self, the pure Witness consciousness,
and lets go of the false egoistic identification with the body
and mental movements. It grants more control over one's life.
Interestingly enough, as self control is gained, one feels oneself
to be less and less “the doer” and so one begins to accept and
enjoy of life as it unfolds. Kriya Yoga develops trust, gratitude
and devotion for God's Presence in one's life. One begins to meditate
on God, and speak to God, as his or her truest and closest Friend,
and begins to hear His response.
Greater mental clarity and focus
is achieved through Kriya Yoga, and it is easier to act consistently
in the right and best way both for oneself and for others. With
this clarity and heightened intellectual strength, one’s consciousness
expands and one accomplishes more with less energy, accepting
less credit for the work done, and with more gratitude for the
Supreme Doer in our life.
Kriya Yoga techniques strengthen
our intuition and our power of healing. Our immune system is strengthened
and we enjoy vibrant health, a strong nervous system, more energy,
and a relaxed, peaceful demeanor.
The integral alignment of body,
mind, and spirit gained through the practice of Kriya Yoga awakens
our potential power and consciousness, known as “kundalini.” The
level of our consciousness determines the nature and quality of
the life we live. We must develop an advanced spiritual consciousness,
which opens the mind to other dimensions of existence. Only then
can we use that consciousness in the activities of our life to
positively affect the world and those around us.
