The history of Kriyayoga can be traced back to more than five thousand years back. The mention of Kriyayoga has come in Bhagvad Geeta as well as Patanjal Yoga Sutras. Kriya Yoga was revived for Kaliyuga by Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji by initiating Sri Lahiri Mahashaya into Kriya Yoga. “Kriya” means the Dynamic Process of Awakening.

In essence, our Kriya Yoga Level-1 program, “Art and Science of Holistic Living” involves the understanding of seven chakras, their attributes, their opening, balancing and tuning exercises. The main component of it is “49 HB Nirmal Kriya”, which involves breath work with different internal as well as external mudras. Once all the chakras are opened by way of special exercises, these 49 Healing Breaths keep them tuned.

Kriya increases prana. For any change to come in our life, we need to have awareness and understanding of different repetitive patterns in our life which make us compulsively act. These are nothing but our karmas. And to implement that understanding we need to have enough energy which comes by way of increased Prana. The whole purpose of this learning program is to increase awareness and develop understanding about different aspects of Consciousness which are operating through us. We have not just physical body but six more bodies apart from that. So the chakras are the doors which open into those different bodies like etheric or pranic, emotional, mental body etc. If we gain full control on these chakras, then these aspects of our consciousness can also be mastered.

This increased awareness and developed understanding on the foundation of increased pranic level can help locate and loosen up our patterns. This helps in the process of Karmakshalan i.e. diffusing the karmas; which in turn increases the clarity. So we come out of vicious cycle of karma-gripped “Buddhi karmanusarini” and enter into the precious cycle of “Increased Awareness” or “Viveka Jaruti”. Thus the jeeva can proceed faster on the path of Enlightenment and Liberation!
