KRIYAYOG

The word kriya means 'activity' or 'movement' and refers to the activity or movement of consciousness. Kriya also refers to a type of practical or preliminary practice leading to total union, the final result of practice. Kriya Yoga does not curb mental fluctuations but purposely creates activity and awakening in consciousness. In this way all faculties are harmonised and flower into their fullest potential.

Kriyayog originated in antiquity and evolved over time through practise and experience. The full form of Kriyayog consists of over 70 kriyas out of which only 20 or so are commonly known.

The kriya practices are inscribed in numerous tantric texts written in Sanskrut. To date only a few of these have been translated into other languages. The most authoritative magna opus on the subject of Kriya.
