Kundalini Kriya Yoga

Mahavatar Shiva Goraksha Babaji, the Lord of the world watching over our World Cycle has in his compassion given to the present age, the Divine Alchemy Kriya Yoga which hastens the spiritual evolution of sincere seeker towards Self-Realization, The Upward flow of the Pranic current in your spine expands your soul-Consciousness whilst the down flow of the Apanic current burns the seeds of your negative Karma, This Pran-Apanic breath currents evolve and transform your mind into Divine Consciousness.

Yogavatar Krishna expounds in the Bhagavat Gita(V.27-28):"The Meditating Yogi becomes eternally free from the Mayic world by concentrating on the Third Eye (Shiva Netra). The Prana(Inhaled Breath) is offered into the Apana(Exhaled Breath), thereby neutralizing the uneven currents of Prana and Apana within the body, Such a yogi, who masters this practice transforms the five senses, mind and intellect, and becomes detached from the worldly desires and liberated from previous Karma".

Shiva Shakti Kriya Yoga is more than a way of life, it is the alchemy which transforms the mind and merges it into the clear light of consciousness.

Kriya Yoga in Goraksha Shataka

- "Babaji: The Lightning Standing Still, Chapter 16" by Yogiraj Siddhanath

Kriya is a process of converting breath into life-force and realizing the body as light. In the authentic text of Goraksha Shataka (part 2, Verse 14), as enlightened by Shiva Goraksha Babaji, by perfect performance of 12 Kriya Pranayamas, the yogi gets to the internal state of Pratyahara*,by practicing 144 Kriya Pranayamas, he enters the state of concentration. By practicing 1,728 Kriya Pranayamas, he expands into the state of meditation. As he goes on to practice 20,736 Kriya pranayamas, he enters the ecstasy of expanded consciousness called Samadhi(Also in Commentaries on the Bhagavat Gita by Yogavatar Lahiri Mahasaya, Chapter 8, verse 14)

The Bhagvat Gita and Kriya Yoga

- "Babaji: The Lightning Standing Still, Chapter 16" by Yogiraj SiddhanathThe Bhagvat Gita mentions this science of Kriya Yoga in chapter 4, verse 29. The Kriya Yoga Pranayama called the prana-apanic fire rite by the yogis, teaches man to untie the cord of breath that binds our soul to the bodily cage. This is then released to fly and expand into the super-conscious skies of omnipresent spirit and come back at will into the little body cage. No flight of fancy is this, but a true experiencing of divine bliss

There are two main life-currents in the body. One is that of Prana which flows from the coccyx (Muladhara Chakra) to the point between the eyebrows(Ajna Chakra). The nature of this life current is soothing. It introverts the devotee's attention during sleep and wakeful state, and in meditation unites the soul with the spirit in the third ventricle of the brain, in yogic parlance called the Shivanetra or third eye.

The Other main current is that of Apana which flows from the third eye to the coccyx. This downward flowing, extroverted current distributes itself through the coccygeal Centre to the motor-sensory nerves. It keeps man's consciousness delusively tied to the body. The Apana current is restless and engrosses man i sensory experiences.

In the Bhagvat Gita, Lord Krishna extols the yogi in glowing terms:

Greater is the Yogi than body disciplining ascetics, greater even

than the followers of wisdom's path. Greater than the path of action.

Be though Arjuna a Yogi!

- Bhagavat Gita, Chapter 6, verse 46


Kriya Yoga pranayama arrests bodily decay connected with Apana, manifesting in the exhaling breath, by fresh inhalations of life-force(Prana) distilled from the inhaling breath. This Prana enables the devotee to do away with the illusion of decay and mutation. He then realizes that his body is mad of 'lifetrons' of congealed light. The body of Kriya Yogi is recharged with extra energy distilled from the breath and energized by the tremendous dynamo of energy generated in the Spine. The decay of body tissues decreases. This ultimately lessens the work of the heart by assisting blood cleansing functions. The heart pump becomes quiet, owing to the non-pumping of venous blood and exhalation and inhalation of breath are evened out. This is an avasta(state) of Kevali Kumbaka.

When one gets to the advanced state of Shiva Shakti Kriya, the breath ceases, Duly, the cool ascending pranic current and warm descending apanic current are felt flowing the sushumna nadi(Spinal cord)

The Gita advises us to practice Pranayama (life-force control) to enable us to realize that we are not made of flesh, but of life-force condensed from the thought of God!

Kundalini Kriya Yoga in Goraksha Samhita chapter 1 verse 47-51

- "Babaji: The LIghtening Standing Still, Chapter 16" by Yogiraj Siddhanath

Kundalini is represented by Cobra snake and can move a yogi from static state to kinetic activation in a split second. The Kundalini is intensified spiritual Prana. If Pranic energy is to be compared to an atom bomb, the voltage of the kundalini energy benefits the guided Yogi like a benevolent Hydrogen bomb.

The kundalini Shakti is activated and awakened during Kriya Yoga, Which I call Kundalini breath(Yogiraj Siddhanath). It is hidden and latent within all human beings in their nervous systems.

Shiva Shakti Kriya Yoga - The Yogic Science of Love

Kundalini Kriya Yoga, also known as Shiva Shakti Kriya Yoga deals with highest evolution of humanity, its rightly called as 'Science of All Sciences'. It is rooted in the Divine Love, without which it flowers not.

The upward and downward currents spiritually magnetize the spinal column, thereby transforming the seeker into a perfect receptacle of Divine Light and Love. The Yogi becomes the process of Yoga. The Yogi becomes Yoga. The pilgrim, the path and the goal become ONE... LOVE.

Shiva shakti Kriya Yoga reveals that by practice alone, and not by blind belief, one progresses and walks upon the 'Royal Path to Self-Realization'. Amongst the pathways to self-realization, Shiva Shakti Kriya Yoga is Peerless!

Kriya Yoga consists of three basic virtues, Tapa, Swadhyaya and Ishwar Pranidhan

Tapa - Self directed discipline and austerities which lead to a rapid spiritual progress

Swadhyaya - Self directed yogic study of the mind and consciousness. Yoga is the inner ascent through ever more refined and ever more expanded spheres of mind to the Divine Consciousness which lies at the core of our own being.

Kriya Yoga is the best practice of Swadhyaya

Ishvara Pranidhan - Humble surrender of one's ego to God and Guru. No doubt sincere Kriya Practice helps in the evolution of consciousness, but ultimately its the the personal relationship with God and your Master(SatGuru), your dedication and devotion to them, that opens the doors of salvation. So Ishvara Pranidhan is unconditional devotion to God and the Master (SatGuru)
