Kriya Yoga Meditation

Kriya Yoga meditation refers to actions

Designed to get rid of obstructions involving body and mind. Kriya Yoga meditation is a complete system covering a wide range of techniques, including mantras and techniques of meditation for control of the life-force, bringing calmness and control of both body and mind.

The goal is to unite with pure Awareness. Since pure Awareness is our original condition, it is also referred to as Self-awareness.

Around 1920, Paramahansa Yogananda introduced Kriya Yoga meditation to the West and founded the Self-Realization Fellowship.

Kriya Yoga meditation: A brief introduction

Preparing the mind. Kriya Yoga is said to be a combination of the more useful Yoga techniques. Like Raja Yoga, Kriya teaches the laws of general conduct , including harmlessness, truthfulness, non-stealing.

  1. Life-force control (pranayama). At this point the difference to other systems, like Raja Yoga meditation, becomes quite obvious. Kriya pranayama is not as much about increasing the time of retention of breath but to magnetize the spine and direct life-force to the brain with the effect to refine the brain and nervous system.

  2. Initiation and Shaktipat (transfer of energy). The seeker is initiated in the proper use of Kriya pranayama. When the seeker is ready, a transfer of energy might occur either from the outside or from within. To experience Kundalini (energy) on its way up the spine is an event powerful enough to change the way we think and function.

  3. Higher Kriyas. For advanced students there are still a few higher Kriya meditation techniques. Full Self-realization may achieved by practicing faithfully the Mantras given for regular Meditation.
