What is Kriya Yoga


kriya yoga

 

Human body has remained a mystery since ages and the more one tries to unravel it the more it seems to thicken. Hence the conclusion that all Yogis and Saadhaks reached was that the human consciousness is two pronged — the inner consciousness and the outer consciousness.

 

Where the role of the outer one is to take care of the day to day life and get influenced by all outer things. the inner one always remains pure, unstained and helps develop divine traits in a person. 

This inner consciousness is free of all passions and it cannot be cajoled into temptations. Hence Kriya Yog stresses on the effort to conjoin the outer consciousness with the inner so that a person may turn into a true human by sublimating all his passions and becoming divine. In fact this union of the outer and inner consciousness is called Kriya Yog. 

When this happens a person experiences a soothing light within himself, all his tensions fade away and he understands that the real bliss is not without but within!

 

Kriya Yog can principally be divided into three parts:-

 

Dhyan 

It brings the mind to rest but makes it more conscious. It is just like a process of looking down at the bottom of a pool through its perfectly still water. It is the best device to wipe out all tensions, diseases, depressions and confusion. During Dhyan when a person touches his inner consciousness he visualizes a spot of light , which enlarges gradually . First it is only a small bluish point which expands as the practice goes deeper. Then the person may see all the seven colors in it and as he continues all the colors may blend into a bright white light. This is an indication of the activation of the Third Eye. Now the person may visualize his own or anyone's past and future easily. 
 

Dharanna 

This is a state of establishing oneself in ones Higher Self. Such a person becomes a 'Saakshi', a witness to all events and Mayic influences do not affect him. This is also called the Paramhans state. 

 

Samaadhi 

It is a state of wiping out one's personality completely and fusing one's consciousness with the Universal Consciousness (Brahm). Such a person can travel to any place in the universe and can interfere in the course of nature. He does not have to take birth again, but if he likes he may come down as an Avataar. 

Kriya Yog is a process of transforming a Nar (man) into Narayan (God). But for it one has to go through intricate Yoga postures, Mudras, breathing processes continually for years, and one must do it only under the guidance of an adept Guru. But this is not quite possible in this fast moving age. 

The second alternative for attaining success in Kriya Yog is Sadhana. All one has to do is to stare unblinkingly at a Yantra and chant a Mantra which will help in acquiring a state of Dhyan. As a result a thoughtless mind is born. Generally we keep nurturing thousands of thoughts, linking them with the past and future. As a result the delicate neurons come under immense pressure and this may lead to mental breakdown. 

On acquiring a thoughtless mind a person becomes one with the universe. He becomes capable like mentally ordering someone thousands of miles away. traveling thousands of miles in a second clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy etc.
