Kriyayoga Is Yagya

 

The human race, which is essentially one big family, faces many problems.  We have created many assemblies, parliaments, the judiciary, many administrations, the police system, the health system and places of worship in order solve the problems of mankind. Yet, many of our problems remain unresolved. 

Why is this so? 
The answer is very simple. Because of lack of understanding, the social systems that have been formed are incomplete. As a result, the systems are not working on the path of Truth and Non-violence.  We need wisdom guided by intuition to make all social systems work for one aim - liberation of ignorance of mankind.

How can we liberate the ignorance of mankind? 
To achieve this liberation, we have to practice Kriyayoga Meditation which was known before as yagya. Yagya is the highest source of nutrition for wisdom and the true principle and practice that was taught by all prophets and realized masters. 

Krishna taught the practice to unite the praan and apaan forces. Praan is the flow of life-current within all parts of the body and into the body and Apaan force is the flow of life-current outwards from the body.:
(Chapter 4 Verse 29)
apane juhvati pranam prane panam tathapare 
pranapanagati ruddhva pranayamaparayanah

Jesus Christ taught the principle that we live by the word that proceeds from the mouth of God..
(Mathew 4:4)
 
Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word 
that proceeds from the mouth of God.


Kriyayoga practice is the practice of yagya. 

When we practise the true principle of all Prophets and Realized Masters - Buddha, Guru Nanak, Jesus Christ, Kabir, Krishna, Lahiri Mahasaya, Mahavir Swami, Mohammed, Swami Sri Yukteshwar, Paramhansa Yogananda and others, we will get the real nutrition of our understanding power. When our understanding increases, we will rearrange the present laws to create new laws - laws of humanity, that will naturally promote Truth and Non-violence and that will be ideal for all.
