Kriya Yoga Introduction
Kriya Yoga is the most advanced technique of meditation that Paramhansa Yogananda brought to the West. It is described beautifully in his Autobiography of a Yogi, in which he calls it "the airplane route to God."
The path of Kriya Yoga involves several steps, two of which are immediately available to any guest at The Expanding Light. The first two steps are Yogananda's Energization Exercises and the Hong-Sau technique of concentration. Once a person is familiar with Yogananda's teachings and has some experience practicing these techniques, he may choose to take Discipleship Initiation. This is commitment to follow Yogananda's path to Self-realization. Once the student has taken Discipleship Initiation, he is eligible to learn the AUM technique of meditation. After about a year's practice with these techniques, one may be eligible for Kriya Initiation.
Ananda's Kriya Minister, Nayaswami Devarshi, is available to talk with anyone interested in pursuing this process. You can call him at 530-478-7624 or contact the Kriya Ministry. He can help get you started on the next step for you.
You can begin the work of getting ready for Kriya on your own by taking the following steps:
