Kriya yoga is an ancient meditation practice for Self-Realization based in India since Last long time. Kriya yoga is the completely science and worship of Life force (Breathing). Kriya yoga is the method to balance the inhalation and exhalation; this is the method of suspension of breaths (pranayama). With kriya yoga practice our internal organs like mind will become pure, our concentration will increase in a miraculous way, the intellect will become sharp and the discrimination capacity will develop. By practicing the kriya yoga techniques the practitioner reaches the “Nil Thought (Turiya awastha)” state when the outer breath becomes slow or may even be suspended and one remains only with inner subtle life force. Achieving again and again such a “No thought” state one becomes specialized in it which results in Self-Realization (Savikalp Samadhi). This means the intellect of the practitioner now holds the truth by experience. One is then established in Kaivalyam, the One and Only (God Realization, Nirvikalpa samadhi). In oneness, there is experience of eternal bliss of self and there is no ego; one is in the Ocean of Consciousness.
Kriya yoga is rein-troduced by Swami Asharam Ji Bapu and subsequent work in the western world. The Kriya Yoga Meditation Practices thought here by Bapu Ji are very ancient yogic techniques. If practiced regularly with devotion and concentration, these Kriya yoga practices act as a powerful magnet that will draw you into Realization of the Self; that spark of the divine which dwells within each of us. We are that which we seek. The true Church or Temple of divine is within. It is there that the true Alter of God is found. It is beyond the outer trappings of all religions. They are but dim reflections of the Sound and Light and Bliss to be found within you.
