Why Kriya Yoga?

An important aspect of any science is that the theories and ideas must be provable, through experimentation, by anyone who correctly performs the experiment. The teachings in The Path of Kriya Yoga have been applied and their efficacy proven by many thousands of students over the last 150 years. They are based on universal principles, and if applied correctly, will make extraordinary changes in one’s inner and outer life.

In contrast to the slow, uncertain “bullock cart” theological path to God, Kriya may justly be called the “airplane” route. Paramhansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi

What is Kriya Yoga?

Kriya, in Sanskrit, means action. Kriya Yoga is a particular kind of action or technique that draws on universal, central, and to some extent commonly known facts of human nature.

Kriya, controlling the mind directly through the life force, is the easiest, most effective, and most scientific avenue of approach to the Infinite.

Kriya Yoga is an advanced technique for spiritual evolution that comes down from higher ages of spiritual enlightenment. Part of the ancient science of Raja Yoga, it is referred to by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, and by Sri Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. While the actual Kriya technique can be revealed only to initiates, its purpose and basic nature have been described by both Yogananda and Kriyananda in their respective autobiographies, in chapters dedicated to this subject…

´Other people go by books and outer disciplines, but it will take them incarnations to reach God that way. Kriya is the greatest way of destroying temptation. Once you feel the inner joy it bestows, no evil will be able to touch you.´The New Path
Swami Kriyananda
