KRIYA YOGA MEDITATION IS THE SCIENCE OF BREATHING

Kriya Yoga Meditation is the Science of Breathing


Babaji


An important basis for the breathing system in Kriya Yoga Meditation is Ujaya, the hissing breath. It allows you to inhale and exhale gradually, slowly, consciously. Hissing breath has a therapeutic effect on the entire nervous system and brain. More and more people from different countries are practicing meditation, mantras and yoga, asking philosophical questions. The apparent availability of ancient knowledge does not make it easier to apply, understand, practice.

Goals of Yoga

In ancient times, the famous emperor Janaka lived in India, he was not only a wise ruler, but also a practitioner of meditation and yoga. Once the emperor learned that Sage Ashtavakra had settled in the forest near his city. The emperor instantly left his palace and went on foot to the forest hut of Sage Ashtavakra. Upon entering the shelter of the Sage, Emperor Janaka modestly sat in front of him and asked several important questions about the essence of the spiritual path. This is how a wonderful philosophical text called Ashtavakra Gita appeared. This text is a philosophical conversation between Emperor Janaka and Sage Ashtavakra. Reading texts on the philosophy of Vedanta, one should see the deep meaning. The disciple asks his question, the Guru gives the answer, this is how the ancient texts of Vedanta are built. In relaxation and openness, all unnecessary disappears and eternity remains. Some prefer to call "this" Consciousness, some God. It makes no difference what you call eternity, words are the fruit of human intellect, they give rise to concepts, that is why in the Vedas they sometimes say “That” to describe eternity. The word “That” ideally reflects the transcendence of the Absolute Consciousness.

Kriya Yoga: what is it?


babaji


Kriya Yoga is the oldest system of meditation and breathing exercises. As a result of the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation, the kundalini energy is awakened. Kriya Yoga consists of a huge number of techniques that are based on conscious breathing and power of visualization. For many centuries, Kriya Yoga meditation techniques have been passed down from high gurus to worthy students. Nowadays, knowledge and techniques are gradually becoming more open and accessible to larger audience of spiritual seekers. The source of Kriya Yoga techniques is Mahavatara Babaji, the greatest immortal Himalayan Master.


Kriya in Sanskrit means "action." In essence, this means the movement of energy through energy channels and chakras. We are accustomed to believing that an action is physically performed, but in reality there is also an inner action. For those who go through the path of spiritual evolution, it is necessary to practice meditation and mantras, which are inner actions.

KRIYA YOGA - True Self and the Golden Body

True Self and the Golden Body


Mahavatar Babaji provides a high service to all mankind. Babaji's secret cave ashram is located in the Himalayas, however he can appear anywhere in the world in order to meet his students. In the 50s and 60s of the 20th century my Guru Yogi Ramaiah lived in the Himalayan ashram of Babaji, where he studied the philosophy of the ancient sages and the practices of Kriya Yoga.


Yogi Ramaiah did not advertise himself during his lifetime, his task was to train only a small group of students. He had a strange and tough character. Yogi Ramaiah could be rude and swear at his students, his behavior was eccentric which is why most visitors, resenting his strange tricks, left his ashram.


Near Yogi Ramaiah there were only those few who, according to the divine plan, were to receive his amazing instructions on the essence of spiritual evolution and receive training in the ancient practices of Kriya Yoga. Yogi Ramaiah taught a narrow circle of students among them people of different nationalities. He conveyed in detail the knowledge and practices of various areas of yoga.
