Kriya yoga is self discipline, self-study, and attunement to the indwelling Reality. -Yoga Sutras of Patanjali II-I
Kriya is a gentle, skillful, balanced approach to life -- a way of conscious and creative living. It is a methodology of self-reliance, self-discipline, and self-inquiry. An ageless esoteric system which transcends both historical and cultural reference, Kriya Yoga unifies the mystical philosophies which are the foundation of all spiritual traditions. It is a way of self-study and meditative attunement which induces a direct perception and insight into the nature of consciousness, the pattern of your mind, and Life itself. Through the study of universal principles, and the use of specific spiritual techniques, it is a system for experiencing a transformation in consciousness which will enrich your life on every level.
