Kriya Yoga.

“By the definite science of meditation known for millenniums to the yogis and sages of India, and to Jesus, any seeker of God can enlarge the caliber of his consciousness to omniscience to receive within himself the Universal Intelligence of God.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Wisdom, creativity, security, happiness, unconditional love — is it really possible to find that which will bring us real and lasting joy?

Experiencing the divinity within our own souls, claiming divine joy as our own joy — this is what the Kriya Yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda offer to each of us.

The sacred science of Kriya Yoga consists of advanced techniques of meditation whose devoted practice leads to realization of God and liberation of the soul from all forms of bondage. It is the royal or supreme technique of yoga, divine union.

15. If you had a time capsule and you were given a chance to place something or leave one message there, what would it be and why?

Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda as it inspired me at an early age.

Yogi

“This is not an ordinary book. It is a spiritual treasure. Rarely does a sage of Paramhansa Yogananda’s stature write a firsthand account of his life experiences.

This spiritual classic has been read by millions. Followers of many religious traditions have come to recognize Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi as a masterpiece of spiritual literature. Yet, for all its depth, it is full of gentle humor, lively stories, and practical common sense.” Read for free here.

Your Turn

It is a wonderful exercise to write or type out the answers to the questions like I have. It puts things into perspective and helps you with your why and to appreciate yourself.

The greatest love of all is that you have for yourself. Affirm it daily and it is easier to love others.
