About the Book

The practical means by which life's aims and purpose can be accomplished have been taught for centuries by enlightened teachers. With  this book, the transmission of this helpful knowledge continues.

Kriyas are "actions" performed to resist, weaken, and remove mental and physical conditions which blur, distort, and restrict our awareness. Removal of these obstacles allows yoga-the return of awareness to its original, natural state of wholeness-to be consciously realized.

Because attentive practice of Kriya Yoga methods purifies the mind, improves overall health, clarifies awareness, increases receptivity to grace, and quickens spiritual awakening, it is referred to as the path of light. These principles and practices are based on natural laws that can be discovered and verified by anyone.

Preface

In this book I have explained philosophical principles and guidelines to self and god realization which have been taught for thousands of years by enlightened saints and sages. The subtitle a guide to 21st century discipleship and spiritual practice in the Kriya yoga tradition defines its purpose. To comprehend the theme read the text in its entirety including the glossary. Then read it more slowly. Apply the recommended routines and practices to your personal needs. Diligent faithful practice of what is learned will improve the quality of your life enhance the clarity of your awareness illumine your mind and liberate your consciousness.

The text of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras as important treatise on superconscious states and spiritual practices written in India several hundred years ago is featured in Part two. Part Three is taken from the Introduction to my book the eternal way. The inner meaning of the Bhagwad Gita to acquire essential knowledge and for inspiration to sustain your spiritual practice regular reading from these sources is recommended to all practitioners of Kriya Yoga in part four I have provided information about the teachers of this Kriya yoga tradition and the methods by which the teaching are transmitted.

It was an early evening in late December 1949 an hour after my arrival at the international headquartes of the self realization in Los Angeless California when I first met Paramahansa Yogananda Quiet courteous and somewhat reserved he welcomed me with gentle affection and gave me his blessing.

After two years of study learning discipleship training and intensive spiritual practice, I was ordained to represent this enlightenment tradition. As I knelt by his chair my guru placed his hands on my head. I can still feel his touch and hear his clear strong voice Roy I ordain you a minister of god. Teach as I have taught. Heal as I have healed. Initiate devotees of god into Kriya yoga.

By offering this book to you I am performing one of my spiritual duties. My earnest prayer is that you will experience a quickening of the spirit of god in you and be inspired to right actions that make possible rapid unfoldment of your highest good.
