Kriya Yoga not only points out a universal highway of ascending the soul to the Spirit, but gives mankind a daily usable technique through whose practice the devotee, with the help of a guru, may reenter the kingdom of God.
One theoretical teaching leads only to another, but any true practitioner of Kriya Yoga finds it to be the shortest way and quickest conveyance to the kingdom of Spirit. Even an atheist cannot deny the ever-increasing joy that springs from the regular practice of Kriya.
As an educator, I tried this method on sceptical students in my school, and found them converted, not by my words, but by the constantly exhilarating results ensuing from its regular practice. Religion in its theoretical form is only partially satisfying, never fully convincing. One cannot reach this goal just by mental meditation. The life force is the link between matter and Spirit. Flowing outward it reveals the spuriously alluring world of the senses; reversed inward it pulls the consciousness to the eternally satisfying bliss of God.
Two men were meditating in different rooms, each of which contained a telephone. The telephone rang in each room. This man may be compared to a jnana yogi who tries to meditate on God, ignoring the unceasing telephonic messages of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, as well as the outward pulls of the life force.
The second man in our illustration had no illusions about his power to ignore the rude clamour of the telephone. He prudently withdrew the electrical plug and disconnected the instrument.
He may be compared to the Kriya Yogi who prevents any sensory distractions during meditation by disconnecting the life force from the senses; he then reverses its flow, toward higher centres. The meditating devotee sits between these two worlds, striving to enter the kingdom of God, but kept engaged in battling the senses. He enters the natural inner calm realm of the soul and Spirit. Withdrawing mind and life force from the sensory and motor nerves, the yogi leads them through the spine into the brain into eternal light.
Here the mind and life become united with the eternal wisdom of Spirit manifested in the cerebrum.
The centre of consciousness for the average individual is his body and the outer world. The yogi changes his centre of consciousness by nonattachment to the body and to worldly hopes and fears. The yogi who can change his centre of consciousness from the sentient body to the cerebral throne of Spirit ultimately centralizes his consciousness on omnipresence.
He attains the Eternal Wisdom. The joy that comes with Kriya is greater than the joys of all pleasurable physical sensations put together. Engaged in divine union of the soul with Spirit, he attains bliss indestructible. I can teach you how to be perpetually interested in being ever newly happy. By practicing Kriya Yoga, and by leading a balanced life, ever inwardly devoted to God, he lived to a ripe old age, always bubbling with ever new happiness.
In the book, he related the following conversation he had with his Guru years earlier: "Yogananda," Sri Yukteswar said with unusual gravity, "you have been surrounded from birth by direct disciples of Lahiri Maha saya. The great master lived his sublime life in partial seclusion, and steadfastly refused to permit his followers to build any organization around his teachings.
He made, nevertheless, a significant prediction. The message of yoga will encircle the globe. It will aid in establishing the brotherhood of man: a unity based on humanity's direct perception of the One Father.
I cannot but be struck by the coincidence that the year has also ushered in a new age — the era of revolutionary atomic energies. All thoughtful minds turn as never before to the urgent problems of peace and brotherhood Ever new joy is evidence of His existence, convincing to our very atoms. Also, in meditation one finds His instant guidance, His adequate response to every difficulty. If a devotee meditates intensely for at least short periods every day, and has longer periods of three or four hours of deep meditation once or twice a week, he will find his intuition becoming sufficiently superfine to realize unendingly the dialogue of blissful wisdom exchanged between the soul and God.
The life of an advanced Kriya Yogi is influenced, not by effects of past actions, but solely by directions from the soul. Suppose you are a financial failure or a moral failure or a spiritual failure. Hold on to that ideal. Meditate until you feel a great joy. When joy strikes your heart, God has answered your broadcast to Him; He is responding to your prayers and positive thinking.
I command Thy power within me to cauterize my brain cells of wrong habits and past seed tendencies.
Rid yourself of the limiting consciousness that you are a man or a woman; know that you are the child of God. Lord, burn them up in Thy divine light. In India, a man who had a bad temper came to me. He was a specialist in slapping his bosses when he lost his temper, so he also lost one job after another.
He would become so uncontrollably irate that he would throw at whoever bothered him anything that was handy. Kindle Edition , 17 pages.
