What is Kriya Yoga?
According to Wikipedia “Kriya Yoga (क्रिया योग) is described by its practitioners as the ancient Yoga system revived in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya, c. 1861. Kriya Yoga was brought to international awareness by Paramahansa Yogananda‘s book Autobiography of a Yogi and through Yogananda’s introductions of the practice to the west from 1920.”
Kriya Yoga is systematically designed to accelerate the spiritual development of the practitioner until one is rooted in Cosmic Consciousness. Advanced practitioners of Kriya Yoga including Sri Yukteshwar Girl eventually attain the Light Body of Immortality where ones physical cells transmute into Cosmic Energy. The form of Kriya Yoga that is known today is Lahiri Mahasaya’s Kriya Yoga that was brought to the west by Paramhamsa Yogananda in the late 19th century. This Kriya yoga involved a series of mechanical yogic steps that the practitioner had to follow after being initiated by the master. This Kriya Yoga was given to Lahiri Mahasaya by Mahavatar Bababji in the early 19th century.
The story of Lahiri Mahasaya receiving initiation into Kriya Yoga by the yogi Mahavatar Babaji in 1861 is recounted in Autobiography of a Yogi. Yogananda wrote that at that meeting, Mahavatar Babaji told Lahiri Mahasaya, “The Kriya Yoga that I am giving to the world through you in this nineteenth century, is a revival of the same science that Krishna gave millenniums ago to Arjuna; and was later known to Patanjali, and to Christ, St. John, St. Paul, and other disciples.” Yogananda also wrote that Babaji and Christ were in continual communion and together, “have planned the spiritual technique of salvation for this age.”
Through Lahiri Mahasaya, Kriya Yoga soon spread throughout India. Yogananda, a disciple of Sri Yukteswar Giri who was himself a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya, then brought Kriya Yoga to the United States and Europe during the 20th century.
1. Atma Shiva Yoga is not a mechanical method of meditation:
Atma Shiva Yoga does not involve any visualization, mental mantra repetition or forced moving of energy through the body. The energy of the Atma Shiva Yoga is activated through a secret breathing process whereby one becomes “meditated” by the highest dimension of Divine energy. In other words, the cosmos, Brahman, or the Universe meditates for the practitioner. One does not need to forcefully control one’s mind or focus on the breath. Mechanical methods are limited and dangerous because one is forcing energy to do certain things. Celestial methods use the natural intelligence of the universe to conduct the spiritual/energetic process for the practitioner. Celestial Methods are quicker and more advanced.
