Kriya Yoga is non-sectarian. Its simplified techniques cause no hardships or austerities and were developed for aspiring householders as well as for monks. From Karma Yoga, Kriya Yoga teaches any action, ‘kri’, is done by ‘ya’, the indwelling soul; work is worship. Constant awareness of the power of the indwelling soul inhaling leads to mind control and liberation.
The Kriya technique highlights the relationship between breath and mind. Breath influences mind and vice-versa. Their mutual relationship has revealed the mystery of how to control the mind. Breath control is self-control. Breath mastery is self mastery. Breathlessness stage is deathlessness stage that brings the state of samadhi, the realization of the Absolute.
In modern times, an elusive and mysterious master, Mahavatar Babaji, in 1861 brought the Kriya technique to the general public through his able disciple, Shri Shyamacharan Lahiri, a pious householder. Lahiri Mahasaya, as he was popularly known, had many realized disciples. Foremost among them were Swami Shriyukteshwar, who was well versed in the scriptures of both the East and West and attained the highest stage of realization. Among the many disciples of Shriyukteshwar were Paramahamsa Yogananda, author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”. Paramahamsa Hariharananda, who became the head of the Kriya Yoga Institute USA as well as the international organizations, was also a direct disciple of Swami Shriyukteshwar. Both Paramahamsa Yogananda and Paramahamsa Hariharananda were not only Self-realized, but became instrumental in spreading the teachings of Kriya Yoga around the world.
